I have somewhat of a different spin on it. "There is no deep reality." is something I read from a book on quantum physics. There is truth at a superficial level that we perceive.. I am pretty much a proponent of a holographic universe. Ours is a sophisticated hologram with other holographic projectors in it. What does it have to do with Christanity? Perhaps our universe is somewhat of a projected recreation of another dimension where there are objects such as precious metals and precious stones (as stated in the Bible) but ours is a projected recreation of this other dimension that has more order or substance?
To understand it better ask yourself, my senses tell me one thing but, how reliable are our superficial senses? What I mean to say is that, I don't have to abandon my Christian beliefs in order to think about or believe in these things.
