This is a fascinating but difficult subject - is being or becoming more
mysterious? In a way becoming is stranger than positing something that is
merely eternally there, perhaps from logical necessity. It's hard for us as
time-bound beings to imagine a block universe - or multiverse - although
reading "By his bootstraps" by Robert Heinlein may help! He clearly "got"
the block universe concept, as was shown in his first published story
"Lifeline" as well as the wonderful (and slightly disturbing) "All you
zombies" - written in one day in 1958, iirc.
