Because there is no machine.
Yes, you will not understand what I mean until I explain myself. By this I am not talking about the plot device lampooned by Greek philosophers. I am taking aim at Descartes, who talked about the human body as being machine-like, as distinct from the soul. That particular machine analogy was easily extended to the world at large (see here for more).
Rather, I assert that there is no God, or soul, in either of those “machines” because there are no biological or cosmological machines.
I will explain myself more in an upcoming post. For now, I assert this: analogies are critical.
The creation we know is not God’s machine or technology, but His art – not so much like a painting, as C.S. Lewis said, but His living art – the distinct, unequal and beautiful (but diseased! Sin…) partner with whom He dances, always animating and upholding her* .
More later in a couple days…
