Re: On simplicity of God

If abstract labels sound silly when applied to a sentient and self-aware entity such as you, for example, as in - “bahman is love,” or “bahman is justice,” then why apply them to God? I already discuss that God like us cannot be subject to time. And I already suggested that any entity that is self-...

Re: On simplicity of God

And just for clarification purposes, are you arguing for the existence of a sentient God, or against the existence of a sentient God? I am arguing against simplicity of God. Again, you are sidestepping my questions. Let me rephrase: Do you think that God is a conscious entity that is aware of its o...

Re: On simplicity of God

But if the universe can come into existence at what seems to be a given point, then why not God? Basically, God is an idea which is supposed to resolve the problem related to facts that the universe exists and nothing has no causal power. If we accept that nothing has no causal power then it could ...

Re: On simplicity of God

Why are you assuming that the Creator of our particular universe has always existed? That is an impossibility since God has to wait eternity to reach from minus infinity to now,now being the moment of creation. By reason of the obvious fact that we and the universe are here, then clearly, it is not...

Re: On simplicity of God

Any entity that is self-aware is subjected to its own “relative” perspective of time. But that is an impossibility since time either has a beginning or not. In first case one can ask how time comes into existence from nothing (remember that God is subjected to time therefore He cannot create time)....

Re: On simplicity of God

God is love. God is justice. Etc. Either there is a relation between love and justice or God is not simple. The only thing simplistic here is the mindset that believes that the words “love” and “justice” can describe a living, self-aware entity (God). In other words (just like you), God can express...

Re: What is gravity?

If every object in the Universe is inextricably bonded with every other object in it via entanglement this would mean they they are all simultaneously dragging the entire Universe along with them in every possible direction Right. And in the context of this speculative theory, that is exactly what’...

Re: What is gravity?

_______ QUANTUM ENTANGLEMENT AND THE SPEED OF LIGHT. Looking back at my OP, it dawned on me that in the same way that quantum entanglement could be the underlying reason for an object’s weight with respect to the gravitational pull of a planet (see the OP), it could also be the reason why an object ...

Re: Does the Human Brain Create or Receive Consciousness?

_______ I suggest that the essence of life (the foundation of consciousness) is present within every fiber of the fabric of reality. And if one stitches the fibers together into just the right configuration (a brain, for example) it can prompt (trigger/induce) the essence of life into acquiring cons...
