To continue my earlier message, like Robert Coyote, I use the term
"spiritual" for want of something better, but I'm having second thoughts
about this, because of the religious undertones the word carries.
What I have referred to as "spiritual" are connections (for want of a better
word) which seem to occur between two or more entities outside the realm of
present scientific explanation. I do not mean to imply that these
connections are supernatural or they will never be explained scientifically.
To the contrary, I fully expect that they will.
For now, though, they're just THERE, like the placebo effect and the
phenomenon of record breaking in sports. IMO, the compulsion to deny these
phenomena simply because there's no explanation for them is, in its own way,
as intellectually limiting as religion.
