More insight and it all conforms perfectly to my cloud cosmoloogy. The real addition is that we have many IS-BEs. I also suspect that such a being will produce multiple aspects of itself in order to populate its universe as well. That seems to be what is happening.
It then follows that absorption back into hte IS-BE may not be that attractive to some aspects who may then opt to become separate IS-BEs and create their own universe.
Once again, empirical infinity is a very large number. Yet it is not infinity as we understand mathematical infinity.
