Roger,

I think the block universe (not quite accurate terminology)
is actually the 4-dimensional quantum mind and in it is written all
possible futures and pasts based on comp and quantum mechanics
as well as info on what became physical and is now in the past.
Richard

PS: Quantum mechanics, and I think string theory, is of course derived
from comp.
