God Had A Choice

Paul: it is misleading view I think to say that any communicable universe must obey physics laws and God allegedly had no choice.

Those laws are directly derivable from CHOICE itself: it is precisely CHOICE; being able to MATCH any patterns you choose, that delivers the perceived structure to the law of non-contradiction known as the laws of physics.

The laws of "A way of looking at a way of looking" (equation 1.7)are what Dr. Dick looks at; they are the flesh and blood of the consciousness of the law of non-contradiction.

The laws of definition underpin any defined universe, obviously. How you define something depends on what interactions you match it with. It is not lacking choice; it is all about and derivable from choice.

A dictionary is circular, until you leave it and match words to gestures and experiences and thus patterns outside the dictionary.

But this pattern-matching is like a wider "dictionary" of pattern-matching; a circular pattern-match dictionary?

How you define something will involve a way of looing at a way of looking. You partially differentiate out the "masses" or "intersection of categories" or "probability amplitudes" that are your definitions.

But original choice is yours as to which patterns you match to which; just be logically consistent!

The laws of definition are derived from choice.
It would not be accurate to say that there was no choice in making choice because choice is governed by choice-laws! Of course choice is characterised by choice characteristics; choice is.

Freedom and responsibility.

Alan
