Community as Primal Reality

The author suggests that there may be a primal, underlying reality common to the universe and to its creator, something essential to what is both divinely infinite and creaturely finite. Do the structures of the cosmos suggest that being in all its variety is essentially communal? Astronomy suggests that clustering is a dominant dynamic and form in the universe, while Christian faith believes that the Source of all is not a single entity but a triad of self-giving persons with an infinite and loving wisdom of plans. Are Trinity and stellar clusters both realizations of an ultimate and universal modality? Community seems intrinsic to being.
