So bottomline, I see no mechanism for direct communication with an eternal God. In fact, I can see a mathematical Godel mechanism for comunication between the living and the dead. But I have yet to find a physical mechanism that makes it happen. For me, it's all physics and math, including GOD.

How does the physical constants of each universe 'communicate' with the mathematical laws thereby determine the physical laws for that particular universe? I think communicate is a proper word since 'communication' is defined as passing information such that a message is understood from the sender to the receiver. In the case of the physical constants, how does the math 'know' to set-up a certain kind of universe based on those constants?

The answer, which you might agree, is that there is a certain 'is-ness' factor to math. That is, if constants are this, then the laws are automatically that. The communication is instantaneous and nothing actually travels through space. Rather, physical laws just 'are' based on those constants and how the math requires the laws to be based on those constants.

Similarly, we as 'constants' have instantaneous communication with God based on the intricracies of God's mind based on our own constant values. If we change our constant value by the act of prayer and attitude to God, then God changes his relationship to us. So, prayer is possible to an Eternal God who has no experience of time.
