To me reality is what I’ve learned through my study of physics, and that includes metaphysics. The prefix meta- means beyond. I’ve seen enough of Quantum physics to know where it goes, and where it comes from. We know enough about probability to figure in the non-material, and to reckon with that.
There is the photon, the element of light which contradicts itself by acting like a particle and a wave. We know of only one universe where that exists, and there is your non-material blatantly advertised. You don’t have to doubt it when it shows up in an apparition of the only human being who recently made it to heaven.
She was all human, not half divine, and she was the mother of the Savior. We do not make a goddess out of her, but she was close to God. Stay with her.
