    that is true if the universe is not a moment by moment thing.


    but that may only be grist for our perceptual mill?

    it won't last. :)

    without going into what mechanisms we would need to make that happen, we would need for particles to arise simultaneously in any given instance, which they do not. unless we imagine the momentary universe to have half manifest particles at some points. possible i suppose, plausible, i think not, a fun idea yes.

    hmm a third party hallucination shared by all, interesting. we could imagine that to begin with what we perceive to be our environment is quite different from one another then over time and agree perceptions it becomes what we consider as one.

    its all not true though of course, to show it to be so we would have to first show that there is no infinity, and that there is are mechanisms for it.
    however, i get the message, or at least a message i think is there; that reality could be anything. perhaps the universe is just a chance shape in the eternal coloured plasticine’s being formed and reformed by nothing.

    er, no….

    a perception of reality that is unique to each of us, is what I meant. :)
