Disbelief in “God,” or Ultimate Reality, is caused in part by our lack of distinction between lower knowledge and higher knowledge/wisdom. If higher knowledge is assigned an agreed upon category for itself among human beings, then they may begin their search for it here in relativity, leading them to Truth — a feat that lower knowledge cannot accomplish by itself. Further, it has been clearly seen that lower knowledge, if left to settle in the human mind as the only goal, becomes dangerous. Such knowledge, without tempering it by higher insight, will soon lead to ways of destroying living beings, as in science’s treatment of the atomic particle found in matter.
