Thanks, Ted. I'm sure all such subjects have been discussed thousands
of times before, and it is great to have somebody like you who can
direct us to the "greats".
Would the entry "Leibniz-Clarke correspondence" in Wikipedia be a good
place to start?

Part of the famous exchange between Leibniz and Newton's protégé Samuel Clarke took up this very issue in an older form: was God able to distinguish all parts of space? I've suggested at times in the past that ASA members would get much from reading that correspondence, which is available in a modern edition and might also be available on the web; this is just a further reason to suggest it.
