Science and theology lie at the opposite ends of a spectrum of rational human enquiry into reality. At the scientific end is the realm of impersonal experience; at the theological end is the realm of the experience of the transpersonal. In between lie the realms of human personal encounter with reality, which are the subjects of disciplines such as aesthetics and ethics. The whole spectrum of enquiry makes up the rich many-stranded texture of human knowledge, surveying the encounter with the multi-levelled reality of the one world of human experience.
