I thought I had found at least one hole. As you presented it, it seemed
to me to be a circular argument depending more upon a given premise than
an empirically-based opinion or working hypothesis.

How does creation=manifestation *begin*?  This is another "given" based
upon a model.  Is not the only certainty simply that things happen?

How do you conduct your research?  Can you offer verifiable evidence to
support your model(s)?

I am genuinely curious, and not trying to score points or play mind
