The definition of reality is decided. In order for this to be true, unreal definitions of reality must be absolutely ruled out by a real explanation which implies only the existence of the real reality. In other words, it must follow from the definition of reality that other definitions of reality are unreal. Since the real explanation (cause) must itself be selected for over its non-existence, the cause must include itself in its "decision". Thus, we end up with a self-determined identity distributed over all that is real. Since it must rule out other potential self-configurations, it must provide itself with a standard by which it defines itself, so that "it follows" from reality's standard that only this reality exists. In other words, reality cannot arbitrarily choose one state over another, since then other definitions of reality would not, in fact, be ruled out when considering reality's definition. Since knowledge is a latent property of the syntax of reality - since reality's description constitutes the "limit" of all potential knowledge - a complete description of reality is what is required for one to be "omniscient". Since reality possesses a description of itself which our minds could, in principle, model, reality is omniscient. Thus, reality is a self-determined, self-justifying, self-distributed, and self-processing entity, which means that reality is God.

Well that certainly clears things up............
