Fascinating book about God and the creation of the Universe. Mr g is God who exists in the Void, with his Aunt and Uncle. At some point Mr g decides to create something. His creation produces an infinite number of potential universes and other interesting items. Mr g focuses on one Universe in particular and gives it several initial conditions. From there Mr g watches but does not intervene. Along the way we learn the current theory of the creation of our Universe and get to see God conceived as the first mover or outside source but not as a personal God. Really intriguing is Lightman's view that Mr g changes as his creation continues to evolve. Really a great book.
