Planckas quantum was subsequently expanded by Einstein and others, forming a new perspective of reality. Central to the quantum perspective is a probability function that disagrees with the classical Greek concept of a cosmic architecture that was explainable by objective and standard geometric principles. The quantum brought to center stage a rationality that hinges on subjectivity, observer experiences, and randomness. The quantum significantly modified classical principles initially established by the Greek philosophers that supported an objective and deterministic reality. With the quantum came beliefs that nature and reality are dependent only on our experiences- reality is not a single objective event, but an array of subjective interpretations. A conscious observer, his experiences, inductive thinking, subjectivity, and metaphorical interpretations within the concept of complementarity became the norm. Within this framework of reality are four fundamental forces of nature: gravity, electromagnetism, the strong nuclear force, and the weak nuclear force. This effort introduces a fifth forceagraceathat is also present within the fabric of creation. Grace is actually the envelope in which the four fundamental forces dwell. The focus of this book is that grace, when recognized as the fifth force, can become a mediating and common denominator for much of the religious polarization that is evident across our globe.
