Actually if the Observer Effect is true, then the Observer would not exist within the confines of space time...so the Observer would not be subject to birth and death...but would be infinite in nature.<quoted text>
Pretty much everyone is in agreement on that point. The question is about what if anything preceded that big bang creation event.
Something had to come before. Like if you believe in an all powerful God who created him?
and if you understand anything about relativity, then you know that you cannot have a finite without a infinite...
...and so Edison's remark about a "infinite intelligence" would stand to reason.
