Hi Stephen P. King 

Yes, that could be a killer problem. Certainly an
interesting one. 

Admittedly I often confuse timeless and spaceless. 
Perhaps the confusion comes from the act of viewing

Haven't figured it all out, but the speeding car would
take care of timeless. Spaceless would be more difficult,
perhaps something more like a helicopter. Or LSD.

Leibniz would say, "If there's no God, we'd have to invent him 
so that everything could function."

I think of the brain as a running sensor of the static platonic world.
Sort of like looking out of the car window as you speed along.

Hi Roger,

    How would this be different, from the point of view of the driver, if it is 
the Car that is standing still and Platoville is being continuously created 
around it? There is no detectable difference *unless* there are second order 
changes. An example of the latter is the feeling you have when you press the 
gas pedal hard and release the break pedal, Or release the gas pedal and press 
the break pedal hard.
    Platonia (or COsmic Intelligence) does not consider any kind of change 
within it, not even zeroth order, thus cannot be considered as an irreducible 
source of all things. It is a nice metaphor that simply should never be taken 
literally unless doing so will never emit or imply a contradiction.
