I'm Most Excited About The Conspansion Thing.

Found out this idea is as old as Sir Arthur Eddington!

A couple links:

Some redundancies, but his arguments re: knowledge and God seem much more "airtight" than anything else I've ever seen (not that I've read more than some of you) -- though his definition of God seems to me to be much less 'Godly' than the God even pantheism defines, or so as I've understood it to date.

Also, Langan is a monist (you're in good company!) and he compares/contrasts knowledge with that mistaken metaphysical sense of "knowledge" so many of us argue about.

I think with his conspansion stuff we may eventually see how Uncertainty is only uncertain to those of us bounded by "self-inclusion" (action-thing, etc. -- a concept I hope others will recognize as the concept I've been defining, in an extremely crude way, as that which quantum mechanics tells us about space-time).

More to come. :)
