Parables for Intuition

All my life I’ve been aware of left brain and right brain thought: objective vs subjective, logic vs intuition.  In an exhibition of James Tissot’s The Life of Christ, I was struck by his painting, The Sower, from the book of Matthew. When I read Matthew 13:10-17, where Jesus explained why he spoke in parables, it occurred to me that intuition is God speaking and logic is humankind trying to understand God and God’s creation.  I wonder:  When scientists reach the point where their telescopes can go back in time and observe the Big Bang, will they see the face of God?  What would God say or do then?
