Audio only. 'This I Believe' radio network program episode. Essay on Chairman of Columbia University, Sociology Department, Robert M Maciver. He speaks about his ways of observing things when he was young. He further explains that we never learn things and the causes of things. We learn more about things and the things change amazingly as we learn but we never learn to explain their being. We discover the atom and it becomes another form of energy. It’s hard to explain the form of energy. If someday energy turns out to be something else again, we are no nearer explaining than before. He says that everything belongs forever with other things, but how it belongs and will belong he cannot comprehend. He speaks that we have something in common, the common pulse, the common life, a common destiny. He adds that the wonder is within him, encompasses him and lies forever beyond. Knowing no name for it, he calls it God.
