This is an example of what I have been saying when people take on a notion of separation. And it has many forms.
The idea of mind/body and spirit is just an observed separation but is not separate per se no more than the forms of rain, steam and ice are different. it is the same connectedness taking on the "appearance" of many forms. Same is true in the mind, body, spirit paradigm. The key thing for people to explore is that they are all functioning metaphors derived out of thought and it is thought that we create reality with. We could create it any way. What we see as our collective world view could have gone an infinite amount of other projections based on infinite potential.
Spud, I think it is comforting for people to have a kind of daddy image of a separate god. Being responsible for creation is a daunting realization at first but then it is ultimately freeing.
What is the very telling thing that supports infinite potential as THE model of "god" (for lack of a better term) is how 7 billions people can have 7 billion different variations on how they see the world and their spiritual views. Each one a flowing/chosen circuit within the "field" of infinite potential.
