" ' Once you have tasted flight, you will forever walk the earth with your eyes turned skyward, for there you have been, and there you will always long to return.---Leonardo Da Vinci '; " Parallelism, Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz, The notion that mental events and physical events are perfectly coordinated by God. The theory of parallelism never became popular among philosophers. It has encountered criticism because it conflicts with the empirical procedures of modern science (experience seems to provide ample evidence that the mind and body affect each other). However, some religious believers uphold the theory because it affords their God ---who is concerned with the happiness of his subjects---the honor they believe is due to Him as the ruler of the universe.'
