Brief and simplified discernment to complement the following essay For natural theologians, proving God was beside the point | Aeon Essays and New Book: You Are NOT Computable | Evolution News. And to inspire, encourage, and support quest for nature 'epistemic and ontic. And nature of reality and truth through individual-shared-collective experience, scientific method, empirical data, and reason as had discerned in diverse ways in diverse past discernments:
On Intelligent Design:
Self-assembled, self-organized, self-evolved, self-realized, and self-actualized universal process of being and becoming solved all known epistemic and ontic problems such as:
1.0 Who or what created the designer. And who or what created the designer creator. And on and on or infinite recursive
2.0 Infinite complexity and potentialities of possibilities: a designer cannot or can never be able to create dynamic casual and emerging infinite potentialities of possibilities
3.0 And from 2.0, a designer cannot or never be omnipresent, omnisentient, and omnipotent nor facilitate such potentialities of possibilities
4.0 And from 2.0-3.0, a designer can never be infinite and eternal
5.0 And from 2.0-4.0, it is not only about process and mechanism, rather continuous dynamic and transformative real time causality of or intertwined and entangled process and mechanism of sum of parts of the Greater Whole for which are beyond a designer.
and among others such as they are affirmed in diverse ways through the human experience and related empirical or process of being and becoming locally and non-locally in the known physical world. And beyond.
It is only through universal process of being and becoming as parts of sum of parts of the Greater Whole that what just mentioned that life and existence can arise. And as parts of infinite potentialities of possibilities locally and non-locally in the known physical world. And beyond.
For many, the word "God" is difficult to conceptualize and relate due to diverse reasons such as culture, life conditions and circumstances, injustice and suffering, and epistemic and ontic resources, knowledge, and means. However, and despite still metaphors for infinite complexity and potentialities of possibilities; "The Essence, Nature, and Ground of Being and Becoming" and "The Essence, Nature, and Ground of Nature and Becoming" is less abstract and more relatable since these are expression of inclusive process of being and becoming or experiential and existential aspects of life and existence. Another simple way of saying is are dynamic living and existential verb. And as parts of sum of parts of the Greater Whole.
Life and existence is all about local and non-local or universal process of being and becoming in the world as briefly mentioned in the intelligent design section. And being and becoming implied or indicated process of transformation and emergence. And which can be translated or defined as continuous experience of life and existence. For example, as empirically known, through life cycle, an individual' body-mind replacement is from spectra-field to sub-quanta to quanta to atoms to molecules to cells to tissues to organs ... and on and on or whole body-mind (or many sentient composite body-mind system) is replaced or transformed and emerged locally and non-locally throughout many cycles. And which indicated there are topology, structure, function, process, mechanism, and order rather than just random or the senses or processes and mechanism; whether observable or detectable, subtle, or hidden can be realized and actualized empirically through the human experience or scientific method. And their integration.
Another simple way of saying is not only the senses rather topology, structure, function, process, process, mechanism, and order are causal and emergence or have to be interdependent and interconnectedness. And encompass or are endowed, embedded, and embodied from spectra-field to whole body-mind of many sentient composite locally and non-locally facilitating by the Ground of Being and Becoming. And Ground of Nature and Becoming. Another simple way of saying is all just mentioned manifested; and governed and facilitated inclusively by the Ground of Being and Becoming. And Ground of Nature and Becoming as parts of sum of parts of the Greater Whole. And as such, are realizable and actualizable potentialities of possibilities. Another way of saying is by knowing the infinitely finite, the infinitely infinite can be known.
And as such, despite AI and machines would outperform human in many tasks and provide much critical or even essential resources and help or means on the scientific quest, AI and machines can never be human sentient since there are not intertwined and entangled with the Ground of Being and Becoming. And the Ground of Nature and Becoming. Another simple way of saying is they are human' epistemic and ontic rather nature 'epistemic and ontic.
And the global community empirical data, despite not yet comprehensive and detailed Home - EPISTEMOLOGY OF LIFE AND ONTOLOGY OF EXISTENCE FOUNDATION AND INSTITUTE (epistemologyontologyfoundationinstitute.org), can still be extrapolated, interpolated, inferred, and correlated accordingly or evidentially.
As a brief empirical illustration of implementable practical or realizable and actualizable parts of sum of parts of the whole Connected-up-brains - EPISTEMOLOGY OF LIFE AND ONTOLOGY OF EXISTENCE FOUNDATION AND INSTITUTE (epistemologyontologyfoundationinstitute.org) as human species' epistemic and ontic. And by self-realized and self-actualized (i.e. self-organized, self-assembled, self-transformed and emerged or self-evolved) sentient or human species as parts of sum of parts of the collective or whole. And in the future, AI and machines can create their own version of nested intelligence or AI' epistemic and ontic in relation and facilitate by sentient or human species. Another simple way of saying is nested or recursive self-realized and self-actualized reflection of nature's epistemic and ontic universal process and mechanism of being and becoming basing on or in causal relation to the Ground of Being and Becoming. And Ground of Nature and Becoming. And sum of its parts.
