    Desperately seeking something

    Human beings are pattern-seeking creatures. They love to hone in on a rigid, simple pattern -- even though it is as ill-fitting as Cinderella's slipper was for the stepsisters and even though humans are dynamic, multifaceted creatures that need a dynamic, multifaceted template to follow -- because humans love familiarity even more than they love pattern. Though there are a multitude of patterns to follow to seek meaning and to gain a sense of understanding of the world, human beings have locked onto the pattern of 'God.' I'm not sure what this 'God' may be as there have been at least 2,500 deities concocted and recorded by Homo sapiens over their short span. There are many other patterns out there -- for instance, see any book by Copernicus again -- that would accommodate better human's fluid complexity. Anyway, God is what we latch onto. Denis Johnson travels some of the margins of human society where -- like at the mainstream -- every one is seeking meaning and using 'God' to justify their less than profound and often ignoble acts. If people would like to seek better, more fruitful patterns then religion, this book would be a good place to start.
