This model is a mental conception that only approximates true actuality, growing further in all probability from what reality actually is as we proceed up a hierarchy of levels from that of our daily lives through levels of greater abstraction such as legal and ethical reality. At the peak of this model lies the greatest uncertainty in which reality is completely unknown and can only be surmised by philosophical and theological understanding.The fundamental beliefs of our ultimate existence at the peak of this model of reality are examined using contrasting philosophic beliefs as expressed in Western and Eastern thought through Christian and Buddhist philosophies. Conceptions of the Western idea of a Supreme Guiding Force are summarized.In true reality, God may be ineffable. Yet, we as individuals need to interact with a personal conception of this deity. This meaningful personal belief is explored.Religious concepts that cannot be proven are examined from a scientific point of view. For instance Quantum Mechanics is used to suggest the continuation of our personal identities beyond death and Evolution is used to indicate Gods possible approach to achieving His final objective in the creation of the universe.
