Abstract


God and Time: On the Timelessness of Divine Consciousness
The primary aim of this paper is to argue that, contrary to alternative theories of time defined by other elements, a theory of time defined by a stream of consciousness is not in contradiction with the timelessness of God’s consciousness, and thus, of his existence; rather, by such a theory, the possibility of God’s timelessness is more justifiable and tenable. In order to defend this central claim, the paper does not employ any proposition in any religious text as a source of justification; but solely applies to philosophical apparatuses such as conceptual analyses, logical inferences, and the clarification of rational intuitions. To justify the central claim in question, the paper makes the concepts of time, consciousness, and the stream of consciousness the central topics of the discussion; relies on the distinction between God’s consciousness and Human consciousness; and tries to establish that God’s consciousness does not involve any kind of stream or motion. By means of utilizing such a line of thinking, the paper attempts to build a theoretical framework that allows for us to see how God could have an existence completely free from the construal of time defined by motion or change.
