I wonder if we might think of life systems as existing within three spheres. I imagine these three spheres in the form of a Venn diagram. In the first is the mechanistic; in the second is the spiritual. The two circles overlap forming a third. It in this third space we place the artistic. Much of what passes for theology is art. Much of what passes for mathematics is art. Indeed, there may be a place where the mechanistic and the spiritual overlap and this place may be the nexus in which art exists. It is here that the ultimate elegance is achieved. One is not searching for balance between the mechanistic and the spiritual; one is searching for that inexplicable, multilayered overlap of the two. In this place, what can be known and what cannot be known come together in the form of the artistic. It is in this place that man may achieve beauty.
