Yes but do we speak of a god of universes or multiverses or infinity. How can a composite complex universe arise? same thing . . .
Complex, composite non Gods are fine, but they can't be the Creator of everything.
Infinity also goes against the gain of intuition, for the word essentially means "that which can never be attained", as does eternity meaning "that which never began nor will end", but accept these we must, for beginnings are more impossible, for any theory with a beginning or a boundary have something before or outside it, which really takes away from it being the All.
There's always Amazon, and createspace.com will put your book there for nearly free (you have to buy a cheap proof copy, which you would want to have anyway). They even give a free ISBN. It's also true that about 6000 books come out every day now.
There is no mid-point if infinity is actual.
Both infinities, of the largest and the smallest, would have equal extent, and so there would always be an exact mid-point. The cosmos has neither a ceiling nor a floor, but it has a middle.
I didn't want to clog up your thread, but you like these avenues of inspiration, so how about this?
Einstein’s 4D ‘block universe’ (or 4D space-time), a hypercube externally, is internally as an infinite number of infinite 3D spaces stacked upon one another, which can be called the 4D hypercube. It’s hard to visualize 4D, but one can generalize it from imagining a stacking of infinite 3D ‘pancakes’. So, in seeing this 4D hypercube of 3D spaces, one can visualize that time is the difference of space(s), an index, it also serving as both motion and charge.
The converse is that space is the difference of time, this being distance. Energy/mass is basically curved space. Space is physical, but not material. 3D space is infinite and is therefore the bounding “surface” of the contained and finite 4D hypercube.
The speed of light, 'c', is really more than than the distance/time dimensional units, but is a reduction to that, via…
the external 4D hypercube, distance^4, divided by internal 3D space-time, time*distance^3, which results in 'c', as reduced, to distance/time, in dimensional units.
Ok so we are calling God a creator of everything. Even though a subjective god is possible, even for this universe's creation.
But what of the lack of our understanding? Maybe we just don't get it? The concept?
I agree with the infinity you describe, though I think I now have a mode that works for a creator/system of All. Wish I could share it but it is going to be book 6 I think It isn't related to our discussion but part of my independent framework.
Agreed. If something is infinite in extent then anywhere you pick is the "middle" since there's just as much on either "side" from that spot as there is at any other.I do not agree with this conceptually. No beginning, no end, no middle (for me ) There is no extent as there is no measurement of infinity.

You can't say "To my left lies 1/4 of infinity and to my right is 3/4 of it..."
No, there is no middle. Middle is a concept of a measurable area. Infinity is immeasurable hence no middle (for me I might add )
Well, at least if all sizes are indeed relative, infinitely, we still have a clear ordering to sizes in our finite realm.
Also, if it were to turn out that the Planck size is really the limit of the small, then this would put 'size' an an absolute scale, which is fine, although the size of the largest would still be unbounded.
Anyway, I don't think it is of direct importance to my theory, but we don't seem to be able to have our being exist at the size of Planck or smaller, nor as really humongous guys.
This seems coloured by evidence. Infinity is not.
If there is a limit on the planck size then all bets are off. Infinity is infinite. No boundary.
I could go with the center of All being everywhere, as well as the All being shapeless, since no boundary, and a point also being shapeless, assuming no boundary there either.
Nothing, everything, unbounded duration and extent all seem to have to be in the package together, along with with no special time or place, no special anything at all. And so we get away from having to account for specific locations in times for any happenings, for there can be no accounting for the causeless.
That's what I said!
Wherever you pick on an infinite line you have equal amounts on either side: isn't that a reasonable definition of "middle"?
