Humans’ earliest experience of power came with their exposure to the forces of nature: storms, floods, and the heat of the sun. Above all, humans have encountered the power of life in the world around them and in their own vitality and quest for physical survival. In a special way, humans have attempted to understand the power of their own sexuality. With the advent of modern science, humans have discovered even more the immense power at work in the universe. This raises the question of divine creation and the intrinsic teleology of the universe, of the Spirit/Power of God, and of the purpose of human existence.
