David Raymer is a human thoroughly enjoying life in the physical world and busy exploring and contemplating what it all means. He is thoroughly grounded in this space and time, yet perfectly comfortable with the idea of other universes, other dimensions and an existence where there is no such thing as time.

Nicolaas Bollen has a different point of view about how each of us co-creates and experiences as the created, our individual events and situations. He sees each Now Moment like a single frame in a motion picture and each Moment of Now as bundled up Now Moments like a scene from a movie.
