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.
