Listening to Brian's explanation of choice and free will, the thought occurs: perhaps God "IS" the law of physics. I think on the idea that we are thoughts in the mind of God, and from that perspective, I can see how as humans we simply have a sensation of choice that may be just that and not complete separation from God. It is my current belief that humanity is God's way of creating "separation" and "independence" necessary that we might "know" God. We can live purely by instinct - as animals - or we can live with insight, and both can look exactly the same on each end of the spectrum.
