I once had a long talk with a Wiccan. She didn’t so much believe in her religion as think it would be a good thing if it were true. She liked the drama, the esthetic, and especially, the notion of a female deity.
The number i always reminds me of this. The square root of negative one. By the rules of Algebra it cannot exist; either two positive or two negative numbers multiplied are always positive. The only other choice is zero…. We can, however, imagine such a number, so it is called an imaginary number.
Odd thing happen when you assume the imaginary number. Algebra is completed. Order falls out of the chaos of transcendental numbers. You get a really cool way to deal with periodic events.
Assuming that which is impossible leads to transcendent results.
That is the best metaphor for God I have ever come across.
