Hi Hans,

"Zero divided by zero could be the ultimate cause of all Existence. "

Think about that for a minute. You claim that the ultimate cause could be the operation of dividing zero by zero. But what exactly are "zero" and "the operation of dividing"? Are they not mental concepts? And in order for mental concepts to exist doesn't a mind have to exist?

Why not posit that a mind is the ultimate cause of all existence. That way, you only have to assume the existence of one mystery and everything else follows logically from that. For example, if a primordial mind exists, then it is easy to see how that mind might concieve of a zero and a one. Everything, from the rules of quantum mechanics, to the fundamental constituents of a physical universe, to wires, to brains, directly follows in a very predictable sequence.

Warm regards,

Paul
