comment Shaar Yichud - Unity of God
kind of like saying an inventor did not precede his idea. not possible - since the idea's existence depends on the inventor.

at the quantum mechanical scale particles behave like waves also so you can't ask from there.

comment Signs from Hashem
when Rivka was unsure about the meaning of her difficult pregnancy, she went to ask the prophet Shem. We don't have prophecy in our time, but the next best thing is to ask the gadol hador.

I know someone who holds the first, that God is totally in each and every element simultaneously but I don't know if this is some kind of hagshama to think this.

@DoubleAA shaar yichud says it is a problem. makes sense to me. since they exist inside the framework's existence so the framework's existence precedes them. what's circular about that?

do you mean He is simultaneously totally in each and every place or He is simultaneously everywhere without this?

comment Shaar Yichud - Unity of God
that is exactly my point - "a part" is a contradiction to absolute Unity. An absolute Unity has no parts or plurality in any sense whatsoever.

@R.Mo does that mean part of Him is in me and part of Him is in you? or perhaps He is in me and in you simultaneously, but then that's 1+1=1

@DoubleAA because then each one is bounded and whatever is bounded is preceded by the framework of existence which set its boundaries. therefore neither is eternal.
