    This is not genius, articulate yes and also passionate, which I admire, but not genius. The basic premise for Christopher is attacking the literalisation of metaphors, which is what most religions do. All the dominant religions are based on a literalisation of a myth or metaphor. When the followers then claim this to be truth and even more dangerously the ONLY truth we have trouble. Sadly he, like many believers in mechanistic, Newtonian science miss the mark. Failing to make room for mystery. The mystery that quantum science, art and any good/mature spiritual practice reminds us is at the heart of life.

    I do remember finding moments of joy and inspiration from church as a small child. By 10 I was thinking this stuff is ridiculous, and damaging to happiness, but I couldn't express it to anyone around me. Living in the south, I still find very few individuals that I can discuss it with. People get very angry when they are defending their ridiculous brain wash.

    I'm new to all this
    And just as I'm falling in love with reason and mind of this great man
    I find out he already passed
    How sad

    One of the smartest minds that were around, but not all knowing. Personally I think the views he had on geopolitics was a bit archaic to be honest. At 16:37 he claims that Russia has an 'aggressive and expansionist' attitude, but has never made any criticism of the foreign policy of the United States, a country which runs at least 10x the amount of foreign military bases that Russia does. Makes me wonder if he really was truly impartial or not

    I'm not sure how his body was dealt with, but I imagine that he was cremated, and that when flames reached his liver, there was a flare up in the cremation chamber that would almost cause it to explode.
