With mathaphors, we can apply these ideas from the realm of mathematics to the totally different realm of religion. One caution needs to be observed here. Such extrapolation does not prove that a corresponding religious idea is necessarily true. When we say that “she sings like a bird,” we are suggesting not that she sings exactly as a bird sings, but, rather, that there is a similarity here, a sweetness and beauty, perhaps, which we can best capture through the comparison. What metaphor offers us is not absolute verity, but challenge, alternative perspective, mind-expansion, and new wisdom. The advantage of drawing on mathematics as a nurturing place for these religious insights is that mathematics is and always has been a place of unprecedented freedom of insight.
