Spock's brother is seeking G-d. This brother is able to heal people in psychic ways. Kirk refuses his offer of healing ..

I don't care for the gold refining metaphor. For me, human character is sin, all the way down. If G-d wanted to avoid sin, then not creating humans would have been an obvious choice. There is no gold standard of human character. I can never be comforted by such a G-d ... even though the description of the City of G-d in Revelations is basically a sold gold Borg ship.
