You are growing your fingernails every second, but do you "remember" doing so? When you stop and make yourself breathe, you are MAKING yourself breathe. After some time you will then notice that you are breathing whether or not you have to make yourself do so. You don't remember every time you inhaled or exhaled the same way if you were God you wouldn't "remember" creating the universe because God was not focused on the fingernails growing. God was focused on what was going on, just like you and me. Only we get so caught up in this that we don't remember having already done it. If you did, it wouldn't be very interesting. For the same reason that when a chess player knows the other will win the end the game and start a new one, because you don't actually want to know the future. If you do, you've already lived it. The whole fun of it is that you might get there and you might not. If you get "there" what else is there to do but be done or find some less significant thing to occupy yourself with. No, you secretly wanted more than that, but you can't quite describe what that thing is because you have never had it or seen it.
