Toward a Platonic model of creation- ver. 1 This is very very speculative, and is likely to change before the end of the day. I offer it as sharable thinking piece in which anybody can join in (a wiki game) and change or add to. 1) Let Plato's One or Cosmic Mind be the source of everything. Space and time emerge as nonphysical quantum strings out of it.
2) Before there is physical space or time, let there be an infinite set of nonphysical numbers, each individually assigned to a monadic form. These do no have physical correlates but are merely potential monads or quantum forms. 3) Let these monads be quantum strings or manifolds of two types: pre-existing time strings and pre-existing space strings. 4) Consider that the forms of these quantum strings be Plato's Forms. Infinitely changeable and divisible, so not yet physical. 5) These explode into being according to a one-to-many model. 6) Consider that the platonic forms are quantum fields, which are divisible and hence not yet substances, but after the explosion are changed into physical, monadic substances: fundamental particles, physical strings, etc. etc. Each then having a monad, each has a "soul" or identity. 7) Because of the infinite number of quantum fields, such creation can be continuous or continue.
