Which would you rather see?

    Which would you rather see???????

    If, by some power, you could experience one of the following from a God's Eye perspective, which would you choose and why?

    Would you rather see the entire Universe, all known, theorized, and unknown,

    OR

    Would you prefer to see the quantum universe, with the same qualifications?

    Another interesting question: what would such a thing be worth to you?

    I don't understand the two choices. Wouldn't the "entire Universe" include the "quantum universe" (whatever that means)?

    What I mean in regards to the seeing the Universe, is the Universe on a Universal scale. That is to say such things as galaxies and galactic clusters. To even see the shape and curvature of the Universe. As opposed the the quantum world and it's extra dimensions and energy fields.

    Is the assumption then, that this God, is not omnipresent?

    Wow. Some people are really overthinking this. This is a simple "what if" question. A "God's Eye Perspective" or "God's Eye View" is just a literary device to indicate something that one could not possibly know or experience in the real world. Don't apply real world reasoning, it fails in regards to these questions. Just use your imagination. I really don't know what else to say. I was hoping for some imaginative feed back but it looks like the heavy boot of logic is on too many throats.

    So you'd rather we reply with illogical answers?

    Just imaginative ones.

    This is a forum full of scientists... what do you expect? :biggrin:

    not implying that scientists don't have any imagination though, quite the opposite...
