Hi Stephen P. King Sounds reasonable.
Being a conservative, however, I tend to adopt orthodox views such as that of Leibniz (to my mind at least) and the Bible.

Leibniz believed that God is purposeful (caused things to happen at least partially due to end causes). Dear Roger, My belief in God is anticipatory, in the sense that in the eternal struggle of Becoming, as I hold to be true that the beliefs of observers will almost always converge on mutually agreed upon facts and thus those observers will have physical worlds with lawful or nomic relations without assuming that avoid Plato? view that a universal can exist without being instantiated, as we see here: http://www.springerlink.com/content/052422q295335527/. These convergences are never a priori knowledge, they cannot be computed "ahead of time".

Hi Roger, Then you are explicitly admitting that God's only purpose is to be an Absolute observer in whose eye all truth is definite. The problem is that such ideas cannot explain how that definiteness is consistent with the experimental results that confirm the violation of Bell's theorem and other theorems (Gleason, Kochen-Specker). All I am claiming is that the totality of all observers act as the absolute observer, not some hypothetical entity that if examined carefully falls apart as self-contradictory. What is so blasphemous about claiming that We are God? -- Onward! Stephen -- You received this message because you are subscribed to the Google Groups "Everything List" group.
