    Einstein observed, “Try and penetrate with our limited means the secrets of nature and you will find that, behind all the discernible laws and connections, there remains something subtle, intangible and inexplicable. Veneration of this force beyond anything that we can comprehend is my religion. To that extent I am, in fact, religious." As the pioneer of Quantum Physic, Neil Bohr, as well as the other modern physicists confronted by the utterly unsolvable and irresolvable paradox of Quantum Mechanics and Quantum Entanglement now widely recognize the truth that Quantum Physics presents a problem which cannot be solved, on the face of it, by either rational analysis or logic - seeming an acausal reality far beyond our knowledge and understanding! Bohr observes that quantum mechanics has changed everything "Truth" and our understanding of reality completely and totally concludes that now, 'Reality, no longer, is Real! "God is not what you imagine or what you think you understand. If you understand you have failed!" St. Augustine Karen Armstrong quotes St. Gregory of Nyssa, who believed, “Any attempt to define God clearly “becomes an idol of God and does not make him known.” (p.113) St. Gregory thought “You had to leave behind “all that can be grasped by sense or reason” so that “the only thing left for contemplation is the invisible and the incomprehensible.” (p.113)
