The Gospel of Thomas provides the answer.

Jesus said: I am the light that is above them all. I am the all; the all came forth from me, and the all attained to me. Cleave a (piece of) wood; I am there. Raise up a stone, and you will find me there.

The Christian Trinity — and its corresponding models in other traditions — have three levels. The causal entity, the subtle realm, and the physical world. Plato’s realm of forms is immanent in the physical world. The ratio of circumference to diameter is pi everywhere and eternally.

We can say that if there is a concept, then it applies everywhere. Believe in Jesus, or pi, or the Golden Ratio, then there cannot be any places where these things have no conceptual existence.

But even if we confine ourselves to the physical realm, then the chances are pretty bloody good that something organic like a communion wafer contains an atom or two that once resided in the body of Jesus. Like, certainty.

Reminds me of the time they brought out special gluten-free communion wafers, using the slogan, I can’t believe it’s not Jesus.
