Let's assume for the moment there is, was, and will be such an agent. A "secret agent" as it were (is and will be).Paul Martin said:The definition of 'God' as used here is the most general idea of an agent which caused, or is responsible for the existence of, all of reality, assuming that there is (or was) such an entity.
I would paraphrase this to say – "that the laws of physics have to absolutely reflect the way in which the agent caused or constructed the universe, and that the agent does include in this construction, a way for the agent to communicate this to us, and thereby to each other.the laws of physics will (according to Dick's discovery) always be valid no matter how that agent (God) might have caused or constructed the universe, as long as the resulting universe is communicable.
I would first have to say, that the "phenomena" isn't necessarily limited to the universe. There may be additional "principles" at work (in play), that exist between the agent and the "universe", that need to be included to "proof" the universe.'Communicable' means that the phenomena to be interpreted can all be represented by sets of numbers.
As for this being "represented by sets of numbers", I would suggest that any set(s) of numbers, no matter how thorough and exacting, they and their interrelationship are; need to be contained within two "points" that need be located absolutely, both as a quantity (1 & 0) and a quality (true & false).
I believe that under concise and thorough scrutiny, any theory will result in a relative ad infinitum (towards infinitesimal or infinite), if it is not contained within an absolute "proof" of 1 (true) and 0 (false).
As I mention earlier, the relationship between humans and God goes in both directions.As for God's relationship to the interpretation, Dick and his result don't have much comment (I don't think). Since the interpretation is done by human beings, the relationship you ask for is the relationship between humans and God. This, of course, is a very contentious issue and it is not generally resolved.
It helped tremendously. Thank you.I hope this helps, and I hope I haven't misrepresented Dick too badly.
