Let me reverse the sequence of your post for my ease: The last part: "> If we accept Bruno's "we are god"< ">I have never said that. The most I have said in that direction, is that, assuming comp, the first person inherits "God"' unanmeability. So the first person has some "god" attribute. you cannot infer from this that we are "God!".Bruno<" I apologize for misunderstanding what you said. I tried to find the meaning of the (seemingly mistyped?) "unanmeability" in your present post - the closest was :'untenability'. Is this what you meant? * Now let me return to our 'human mind". Reasonably: we are part of a world - assumably a small portion only - and our mind (whatever you identify as that) is 'part of us' = included into the 'model' we may call 'humans'. We have certain exparience-stuff and logical thinking ways, we use that even in trying to 'understand' ideas beyond it - beyond our reach of observation. We do that, but can never be sure of doing it right. In the sci-fi I wrote in 1988-89 I depicted the 'story' of human evolving as done by an experiment of aliens from another universe, to which I assigned "energy" with 3 (three) poles. One +, one -, and a THIRD one. (Maybe your math could formulate this, but I could not. I accepted it as something beyond our human mind. (It facilitated direct mental contact, manipulation of time, overriding of materially induced space barriers, conscious machines and of course no lights-peed max.) [It was rejected from publishers both in the US and Europe on identical grounds: too much science and insufficient sex and violence] Speaking about such is different from understanding, more so from 'creating'. We would need a bootstrap process to explain our origin (existence) from within our existence. Maybe this is my mental limitation - I have to live with it. And - of course - I am also guilty of 'human' thinking as you charged. Loeb created the idea of his machine. It is equipped with superhuman (-natural?) capabilities, all identified by a human mind, just as my 3-pole energy was. The idea of a "pole" is very much from within our (humanly adjusted?) worldview. If it is 2, or 3, or 1457: it is still a (humanly divised) "pole".
I am a believer of 'creativity' so I do not find 'arguing' about 'ideas' superfluous. I am not 'prejudiced' against numbers: I asked so many time to get understandable information and did not. I am agnostic, do not 'cut out' other possibilities unless I see acceptable arguments to do so. (Acceptable to me). And: you are so smart that you do not have to resort to some 'racist' hint which seems to me as an ad hominem link. Here I am again: decided so many times to keep off from arguments where the word "god" is involved and am bugged down into it, both with you and Danny. I have to control my 'mouse' better.
