Hi Ken,

You have probably read it, but if not, may I recommend Julian Barbour’s ‘The Janus Point’. Some of your ideas may resonate with what you read in his book.
It’s a fascinating read.
Personally, I rather like the concept of String Theory, more as a concept than because I actually understand it. I’m still working through trying to understand the maths of Relativity and Quantum Theory which will probably take me another decade or so. I think we will always arrive back at the ‘something from nothing’ scenario and for me that will always be answered by my faith in God as Creator. The great Owen Gingerich who has just recently died (1930 – 2023)
, came to the conclusion that “a common sense and satisfying interpretation of our world suggests the designing hand of a superintelligence… ” (Owen Gingerich, “Dare a Scientist Believe in Design?” in Evidence of Purpose, ed. by John Marks Templeton (New York: Continuum, 1994), 25, 28, 32).
