When deciphered, it read:" SMERSH? I'll bite, what is it? Do I wear a cool suit and glasses? " Actually, I think this slightly reverses the usual understanding of the relationship between God-in-Eternity and Time. I would not say that God "is always NOW"; rather, I would say that God perceives past, present, and future as always-already simultaneously present before God. To say that God is NOW almost seems to restrict God, to place God in the NOW, whereas I posit that we want to say that no moment contains or can contain God." Thank you, that's what I meant but I was trying (unsuccessfully) for economy. Don --
