We have only the slightest idea of the boundless mathematical abstractions that may evolve in time and lead to ever richer mathematical systems. We are incapable of imagining the experience that will evolve as we use this knowledge to extend the scope of evolution. At any point in time we can only know an infinitesimal fraction of mathematical truth. At any point in time the experience that we have is the merest hint of a shadow of what can be. God
is the never ending realization of that potential.
Time in a finite model or one that has completed infinite structures is the same as space. There is nothing special about the time dimension. This is not necessarily true of a potentially infinite universe. Such a universe may start with nearly uniform and simple conditions over some region. Over time it can evolve structures of arbitrary complexity spanning arbitrarily large regions.
Creativity is tied to an arrow of time . Creativity produces the structures that are the experience of time. Time is how the finite approaches infinity while always being infinitely far from it. Of course we can never know but the most interesting fantasy assumes the creative process is unlimited.
