Is asking “Who created God?” like asking “Why, why, why?”?
knowing full well that your answer will be informed almost entirely by your theological position (theist, atheist)….
if “God” is defined as the (ultimate) “creator”, then does asking “then, who created God?” have something in common with a small child’s incessant and repetitive, almost mindless, asking of “why” something is the case, then asking “why” that is the case, then asking “why” again, and again asking “why” and “why, why why”? … without really considering any of the answers given for even a moment, simply asking the next question in line… “who created God”? ..”oh, well, who created God’s creator”? …and so on….
it seems the mind’s ability to regress infinitely becomes a distraction. the desire for more information keeps one from actually learning anything, absorbing anything. as one might devour the entirety of his dinner in few short moments, or, take the time to savor each bite, each individual flavor, each taste and texture.
why do we do that?
simply musing: is it possible the end (highest form) of complexity is actually a self-reducing of something’s own complexity into a more simplistic form of itself?
