still thinking about that one.................
i`m going to riff on this one for a bit.
so god is here all the time but he can`t do anything he wants to effect events and people now.
so he created all this and now it`s running along out of his control.
here`s a descartian question then.
who, if anyone is in control then?
if nobody is in control or can have any effect on things other than by direct physical means then we can just relax and go with it.
if there is some direct link between thinking and outcomes.......which i tend to favour......then it would be in our best interest to build good healthy models for thinking about our prospects and our creative responsibility.
