Dear George, I was missing more of your contributions on this list lately (years?). Let me reflect to a few of your topics:
*Chaos.* A decade or so ago I was named 'resident chaotician' on another list - later changed my mind when I was disenchanted by the 'physical chaologists' who picked some 'chaotic' problems that seemed to them as calculable in the original (greek mythological) chaos: the unfathomable uncalculable (pre-geometrical?) plenitude of which the Chronos-Zeus family derived our "Kraxlwerk" (world). Since then I put 'chaos' into the maze of scale-differences (more than just SOME orders of magnitude?) that conflate our math-based thinking. We learn to think about 'chaotic' (very slowly, but we do, indeed). Thank you for leading (me?) towards Tohu-va-Bohu (what I always wrote in one 'tohuvabohu' in ANY language and applied it for some unresolvable mixup in a conglomerate. *"And God saw the light and it was good"* is translated in some other languages as "And God saw THAT the light was good" (Rabbit: which one is close to the original?) Does not underline an omniscient God. Now - your God = Consciousness is to my liking: I could not identify either of them. I consider Ccness a covering noumenon of many phenomena detected over a long cultural history and in my speculations I boiled it down to "responding to information" - self-recursively, or not. E.g. the response of an electron to a + charge etc. So it really covers the entire World as you connotation would imply for God = Consciousness. >From this position it is obvious that I am not much for the Anthropic Principle. It is a backwards thinking from visualizing "US" (as God's children?) as the main actors in the world. We are not. *Consciousness can only see order in the world that it perceives:* reminds me both David Bohm's *'ORDER'* as whatever we know of (and could arrange into the order of our knowledge) - as contrasted such *'explicit (order)'*to the *'implicit' world -- *a n d also to Colin Hales' mini-solipsism about everybody carrying as a personalized (partial) world-content (reality?) the content of one's mind *in the personally adjusted formulation.* I like to call it a *"perceived reality".* Which I find congruent with your "consciousness filters out the world from chaos". I still feel that R.Rabbit would add more content to 'God' than just consciousness. (Cf: Bruno's 'Theos').
