How does God view what we'd call "time"?

I understand that time does not exist to God the way it does for us, the analogy given in the Bible of a thousand years being as a day to God and a day being a thousand years.

Still, while I’m eons from understanding God’s mind, I wonder how He sees the events that transpire on earth…

We look at a timeline of the past, present and future. Is it possible that God sees our world and, in his “timeline”, everything is happening at once?

Right now, I type at my computer in May 2009; perhaps as God sees me typing he’s also seeing Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden, David fighting Goliath, Jeremiah begging King Zedekiah to heed common sense and obey King Nebuchadnezzar, Malachi penning the last of the Old Testament, Jesus being born, working miracles, crucified, risen, Paul writing the New Testament, Christians being eaten by lions, Martin Luther hammering his 95 Theses at Wittenberg, and so forth?

In God’s economy of “time”, is human history all happening at the same time?

Sometimes I picture God viewing a giant matrix of images with the very first one being the creation of the world and the very last one being Satan’s defeat at the end of the millennial reign.

I could be wrong, but it’s always a pleasure to take a break from life and use the mind God gave me to imagine.
