: interesting...

: sacred - that which is outside of us & our more explainable experiences - becomes profane when we infer, interpret, & extrapolate - so then does the profane become mundane when we are able to reason it out to a general societal consensus (which is then thought to be "truth" for some amount of time)?... & our reasoning, our ability to make associations, where does it come from?

: so how do we know when it is God talking to us in our dreams or thoughts? how do we know when an individual sees past that which the majority already sees - trial & error? scientific method? but even that's not fool-proof.
Faith has alot to do with this last part of your question. Faith is the opposite of proof. If you try to answer this question using a way to get to a concrete answer, the mystery of God disappears. It then becomes a quest for this pesky invisible thing that may or may not be there. Its a timeless (and awesome)question that I haven't a clue about how to approach.
