Hey Mario,

>>>H: "The moment that a timeless entity 'felt' something they would be 'in time' and this would make this sentient being a creature of the universe instead of the other way around... I advocate an aware God (or an aware divine order). That is, whatever actions that divine order does would have to consider actions that it has taken or will take at a minor or higher level." M: How do you hold both opinions? A causal process does not indicate decision making.>>If the past and future have real identities, where are they? (Bad question, I know.) Also, would this suggest an infinite amount of energy in the..... ummm..... multiverse, since there is an infinite amount of points on a timeline?>Why must understanding be an issue? A computer program, for instance, "directs" the flow of information through its hardware, but there is no consciousness involved. It is all self-sustaining. I don't understand how you advocate infinite mathematical order, but with the stipulation that it be self-aware.
