PREFACE

The true God is known by what He does, and this is but one of the evidences of who He is. One of the things He does is give growth, a most fascinating reality, and when considered, an all but overwhelming tour de force and bastion of brilliance in itself. To this, attention must be paid, so that its reality is realised, and His action is pondered, as all truth must be for those who do not disdain wisdom.

Before growth of course, is existence, and since there is no mandate for magic, existence requires a source, basis and GO to put it there. Laws do not languish in clouds of vapour, or thought for that matter, but can operate only where a SYSTEM is ALREADY present, in which they have either cognitive or operational significance.

In politics, laws need people to whom they apply, ears, minds and so forth; in life, they need assemblages of multi-scaled realities to which to apply, even the forms having law inherent, geometrically and operationally. To seed these from nothing is nothing very wonderful in thought, being mere impudence of folly, since nothing has nothing to contribute, and is hence merely irrelevant. The actual criteria of GO, of which creation is only one element, have to be pondered likewise, lest magic again relentlessly pursue the drastically indifferent mind, and its nonentity become an idol of destruction.

Glory too requires a source. There is in man a desire for it, whether in sport, in architecture, in painting, in politics, in nations and in the multiplicity of manís aspirations; and although it is frequently, and perhaps most frequently associated with vain, futile, destructive and at times all but whimsical and sick selfishness, there is a positive side, and a healthy one to it.

Such seeking of glory, when healthy and not obsessed with self or its appointees,  can be the very essence of reality that is sought, not the pushing of some proud wheel-barrow, thrust by an idiot, seeking a goal of evanescence. It can be the adornment of the race, in this, that it is residual from the GO that put man into being, and a seeking for the GOD and not the merely mouthed magic, who is required for his very existence. When THAT is the glory sought, so that all other gloriousness is merely derivative to the glory of that glory-source, then it is well.

Unlike the gods of naturalism, which we extensively pondered, finding that they had no GO, the God of glory is remarkable for a power which nothing limits, a fact which may be found operationally as well as historically and logically, as also for growth which is staggering in its intellectual requirements and exquisite proportionality, such that cancer is a comment to awaken man to its reality by negation! His glory is to be sought, and when found, makes this world's form and fashion, which passes away manifestly, the stuff of dreams not to be desired (cf. I Corinthians 7:31).

Finding Him is the quintessential mercy to be sought, knowing Him is this mercy made actual, and following Him is a voyage of wonder, which makes that of the great Sir Francis Drake seem but a nautical stroll.
