I am puzzled about questions that ask if a Creator can create Itself.
Look at a circle <I>after</I> it is drawn: at that point, it has no beginning and no end.
Look at a circle <I>while</I> it is being drawn: during its construction, you can see it does have a temporary beginning. Only after construction is complete, does its beginning seems to disappear.
If time is cyclical, then why couldn't a similar analogy apply?
Maybe I'm not expressing myself as clearly as I could, I hope someone here can upgrade the quality of my observation to get at its essence and not be stuck with the poor quality of my language choices.
