> For me, duality is the key to conceptualizing many aspects of existence, including God. Duality is integral to the understanding of much of cosmology, including the phenomenon of light. Light has the dual nature of being wave and particle at the same time. I experience God the same way. He exists and doesn't exist at the same time. He is present and absent at the same time. He is not of this universe, yet comprises everything in it. He is the Unity to be found in separateness.

I forgot to mention one of the most important features of a duality-driven conception of God and the Universe: Free-will and fate exist simultaneously. Everything that has happened and is yet to happen was determined at the moment of the Big Bang. Every thought, feeling, and behavior you have was preordained. However, these things occur only as the product of free-will. Yet, the exercise of free-will is the product of fate. Duality is a rather fun concept to ponder.

I am still interested in knowing how you define the word "faith".
