But you post implies that there never was t = 0, IOW infinite time and infinite existence of something outside of this universe.
No I did not. I gave a defined example, a begnin example. That example is not analogeous of how the universe or mulitiverse aught to be.
My perspective is that before the universe became explicated, there existed a timeless permittive condition with certain fundamental mathematical potentials, which by some mechanism gave rise to the Implication of becoming expressed in reality as our universe.
I am not being sarcastic here, this is an honest question: and you don’t think, that this “timeless permittive condition” as sofisticated and highly complex as you portray it to be must have some type of A command center or brain, out of which it aught to run its routine checks, calculations, analysises etc.? Please keep in mind that one does not have to necessarily exclude the other. To me, they are perfectly compatible.
This perspective is a result of reading David Bohm’s book “Wholeness and the Implicate Order”. This book was at first soundly rejected, but has steadily gained a following in the scientific community.
David Bohm was an erstwhile eminent physicist and philosopher and friend of Einstein and developed Bohmian Mechanics which rest on the universal concept of the DeBroglie-Bohm Pilot Wave theory , which actually resolves the conflict between QM and GR, but assumes hidden variables, which is still questioned by mainstream science.
I just looked up the book, it’s a really good. believe it or not, I am going to read it as there is a pdf version of it on google. Your post is an example of how you people fascinate me. You are like little gods LOL. You know? ...like Apprentice-gods. You really go out there and proceed to do your homework. I looked up everything you mentioned in your post, so it proved to be a good little study. For which I thank you from the heart. Please keep them coming…
