11.4 Summary

We conclude in theism that divine love is the substance of divinity. The being of God is therefore Love itself. This love is the father of all creation, in the sense that all non-divine objects are reduced images (or likenesses) of that Love. All the world’s objects are forms of love. The specific loves of objects (and of ourselves) are not immediately visible. They are only obvious when their effects are seen in real or in thought experiments. Exactly what we mean by ‘reduced images and likenesses’ or ‘reduced forms’ has still to be determined.

A detailed account along these lines will have to address the problem of evil. How can evil exist and persist in a world governed by a God of Love? Because many specific questions have to addressed first, that discussion is deferred to Chapter 29.
