The Database













Let's quit our jobs.

Let's quit our jobs and spend our lives devoted to creating this new archive.

This archive, or database if you will, would consist of three categories. Each category would be preserved neatly.

Let's devote ourselves to archiving aspects of God's general revelation: that is, the character of God that can be seen through His creation.

  • Category One: People.
    • Every human being is made in God's image. My personal conviction (and therefore, the conviction of this hypothetical database) is that every single individual on this planet can/does reflect God's image in a somehow unique perspective. This Category would document people and their "unique" quality which gives us an added sliver of reflection of God's good beingness. I just experimented with trying to do this on Andrew Kevin Walker.
  • Category Two: Moments in Transcendence.
    • This category captures transcendency in this life of ours -- generally speaking, this would most generally pull from pieces of artwork, but could also be in the form of new discoveries that bear new insight into God's creativity/imagination.
  • Category Three: Miracles.
    • A list of what appear to be bone-fied miracles. Yes.  
So, are we all in? I can't see any reason why we shouldn't be?
