Psalm 63: Prayer is the breath of our relationship of God. The absence of prayer shows that we are spiritually dead. I don’t mean just saying prayers that are not spawned from the heart, of course. Jesus said empty prayers amounted to only religious ceremony. One can dress up a dead body but there sure is a difference between that corpse and a living person even if he is sick. What do you think of when prayer is mentioned? This is a good question. Your answers reveal a lot about your relationship with God. Throughout Psalm 63 we will be able to make observations of this man’s prayer. I would suggest that David’s prayer life is an example of not just an okay or typical prayer life but a model from which we can learn. So stay with me. My hope and prayer is that you will not only begin to ‘breathe’ more on a regular basis but because of your spiritual life, have strength to run the race that God has set before you. Biological aspect
The present theory dovetails nicely with certain biological observations. For example, the theory requires a simultaneous juxtaposition of two views in the mind for humor to be perceived. This makes the general cognitive point that only a relatively sophisticated mental apparatus, which can simultaneously entertain multiple views of a situation, is capable of perceiving humor. Certainly a mind that can entertain two views at once is more complex than one that can only entertain one interpretation at a time. This would seem to have some general relationship to the observation that only humans, chimpanzees, and possibly gorillas, orangutans, and even macaques laugh (Gruner, 1978:2-4), but that ``lower'' animals do not. Cognitive abilities of apes and monkeys exceed those of the lower animals; this general relationship is at least consistent with the theory's requirement of a relatively complex mind.
