Abstract
As the journal is effectively defunct, I am uploading a full-text copy, but only of my abstract and article, and some journal front matter. Note that the pagination in the PDF version differs from the official pagination because A4 and 8.5" x 11" differ. Note also that this is not a mere repetition of the argument in /Mind/, nor merely an application of it; there are subtle differences. Finally, although Christians are likely to take this as applicable to a God who can enter time, Jewish readers who wish a full understanding of its intent are referred to M.R. II:13:3. Note that /some/ free will, however miniscule, must remain, exactly as argued. Also, Maimonides speaks differently, albeit metaphorically, elsewhere, and nothing here contradicts his statements.
