"... In your analogy - I assume the cknew things about my life that tonductor is the human psyche - but what is the 'force' ? .."

My bad typo here. Somehow characters from another sentence were transposed It was meant to be simply: " I assume the conductor is the human psyche - but what is the 'force' ? "

"..There are some people with personalities like this, and they are impossible to live with. The Pharisees and Sadducees were like this; and Jesus repeatedly frustrated them by speaking in metaphors. He especially irked them, by speaking about forgiveness. Some prominent dogmatic scientists of today, such as Richard Dawkins, likewise stop their ears at the teachings of Jesus; because they cannot understand them.."

"... they are impossible to live with..Some prominent dogmatic scientists of today such as Richard Dawkins, "
Interesting that you mentioned Dawkins, his wife of 24 years left him recently. http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-3694202/Britain-s-highest-profile-atheist-Richard-Dawkins-announces-end-24-year-marriage-Dr-actress-Lalla-Ward.html Dawkins is an intellectually conceited little man, the Pied Piper of militant atheists. The way his eyes and face thinly disguise animosity towards all that he doesn't agree with is almost funny to watch.

As far as forgiveness goes, it's not THAT hard to understand. Even an evolutionary biologist with an open mind should be able to pick up on it.this is now seen as being part and parcel of having a healthy psyche. You're doing it ultimately as much for yourself as the forgiven. Imagine if the world was an illusion or that the person/thing that caused you harm was no longer in existence - and you were still harbouring hatred towards them - who is the fool? Who suffers from your hatred?
