In an attempt to understand Molinism I've come up with the following. I am not trying to argue a point but rather trying to come to an understanding. So, please don't just disagree with it but instead correct the analogy, remold or reposition the model so I can observe it and understand it. Maybe both narratives I've made are models? **** Grandmaster Flash, out of love for music, wants to select the best record to play for his enjoyment. Grandmaster Flash has a huge set of vinyl records that he produced. These vinyl records, consist of a combination of sounds , rhythms, tones and lyrics that he himself made and some caused by accompanying musicians. He locates this 'best' record and dropping the needle he gets his groove on. Being confident of all he knows he will hear during the song, he can really focus on enjoying the experience of the moment. **** Using the above as a basis for a mind experiment, I'd like to represent my understanding of Molinism: #### God, out of love of relationship in the Trinity, wants to select the best world to share relationship with others. Knowing a potentially endless selection of worlds, using his intellect God would select the best world that would suite his intent. God knows all reality, and so there is nothing that 'is' that he does not know it to be. Therefore the outcomes of all events (determined , stochastic and free choices) in these worlds are known. All of these potential worlds were therefore complete static sets from creation to the end, similar to a vinyl record. Once a world is selected and actualized there is no purpose or possibility for any event to deviate from the set. Informed by his Middle Knowledge (MK) God makes a selection. His choice of this one world is conditioned upon the facts that as few people as possible would perish and that the maximal number of people, using their own LFW, would accept him. What God did not causally determine within this static set world, he meticulously chose. This choosing is not to be to his shame, however, but to his credit, since what he chose results in what is best. Conclusions: 1) While in this world, it may be the case that I am not the best I could have been compared to the 'me' in some of the other worlds, it is the case that this world results in the best world out of all worlds that could be. 2) While God knew, before selecting this world, exactly what he would do in each response to his free creatures I can still reasonably feel a personal reciprocal relationship whith him. #### Again, please don't just disagree with these models but instead correct the analogy, remold or reposition the model so I can observe it and understand it. Do the same with the two conclusions as well. Or, let me know if it seems close.
