Referring a free necessity for an uncompelled meaningful ensemble of social relationships to understanding and finding no concept of it on earth/is, except a curiosity about incompleteness, then referring the necessity on to reason and finding no idea of it except a desire to freely do the perfect good/ought in every ensemble of social relationships, the final verdict was that “The free necessity of uncompelled meaningful, perfect ensemble of social relationships is the mother of Good Neighbors, a real unity of complexity in the image of the original Good Neighbor”.

Perfect is not the absence of tension, love requires disinterested choice, conflict keeps things creatively growing, and beauty has no limit. Our ideas of Heaven and Hell are a little off. So you think you can tell Heaven from Hell?

What if the greatest Why (for us) is born in the deepest Hell (subsumed in Him)?

Count it all Joy.

I'm in Miami, here no hell, no heaven(haven) but controlled passion of thought.

There . I excuse myself from the terrible contrasts that at once demean and glorify.

I would probably say that imagination and vision is the Daddy of invention. lol Seriously though.

You cannot see or know what is necessary until you can envision it.

Chance is an illusion meant to teach us we have a co-creative choice despite the work being complete.

What do you mean by despite the work being complete? It was all in God's hands, start to finish, and we had nothing to do with it?

You have selective reading, friend. Back up to we are co-creators. But don’t just selectively read that part out of its context, either.
