If everything is made up of energy, which is the equivalent of mass x speed of light to the second, it means that because we move we’d have to have a baseline speed as that. Would that mean all humans are traveling faster than the speed of light on a scale that we can’t perceive. If energy cannot be created nor destroyed and only changed it means that what we are experiencing is temporary. It’s a construct of our mind. Time exists because we measure it. It’s the observer paradox. If life comes from perceived nothing, and you use the assumption that everything has already existed and because our frame of time is so minute, we are actually spreading planar rather than linear. Through linear progression based on planar progression, if the overall quantity being magnified is in the positive quadrant that is the basis for further development. Everything builds off of current infinite moments. Why is the assumption of death a return to nothingness rather than a shedding of ego and returning to infinite energy?
yes,- you are there… but now with such knowledge you choose which type of light you create, for there are many depths to a colour. There are many speeds of creation…
Time is a necessity for without time we cannot make appointments, and ego is a necessity but the potraying of ego is the choice of the ego… the identity of chosen self. The creation of your spirit and the way you choose to create and experience energy, you are free to create, you are wise to share, you exchange to provide
@awildwizard, This comes to mind when I read your comment not sure if it applies to what you are saying as the forum is hard for me to follow. I remember in school my teacher telling me that white is the lack of color. My mind takes this statement in many different directions and I don’t know enough to come to any acceptable conclusion, what that would mean and all.
@ericaleeper, Don’t be disappointed or disheartened. It was meant as a positive construct to say that the “nothingness” of death that people seem to feel may just be an illusion. All new feelings and journeys start as nothing, until it happens.
White is the presence of all colors, while black is the absence of all color. It’s one of those strange paradox. If you have strong visuals and look at a white wall, you will see every color and then some. If you stare at something straight black you still have straight black with almost the anticipation of colors. It’s a thin film of molten iridescent color that hints it could be there. We are only use to seeing a fraction of the spectrum of light, so what we know I would assume is fairly limited.
E=mc^2 is only part of the equation. The full equation is E^2= (mc^2)^2 + (pc)^2, where p is your momentum. So because of this extra term in the full equation it keeps us, or anything, from ever traveling faster than the speed of light.
As for your concept of death, I completely agree. It is not a return to nothingness, it is a return to infinity.
@awildwizard, We are more than just energy, if you break all our physical material down, at our sum of parts level maybe we are just energy, but we are more than the sum of parts. Each combination, advancing in degrees of complexity, has function. Energy has to function as energy does for it to become matter, matter must function as matter does for it to catalyse life, life must function as it does in order to evolve to the level of mind we possess and that mind must continue the same established trend, the mind must function as the mind does, otherwise it simply isn’t a mind.
So energy is only part of the story, we are function just as much, we are both cause and effect. But what is death? Another function that occurs with matter and energy, or rather a dissolution of function, our material mind has a bunch of functions that break down, cease to function on that higher complexity and revert back to more basic functions, so everything that made us who we are in essence remains, but the complex relationship of functions that arrived at the singularity where a new function emerged, you, has reverted back to its original state.
So all the sum of parts that make you who you are, are essentially immortal and such arrangement of complexity toward higher function is therefore eternally a probability, but death is just a break down of function, from one complex cooperative to many individual/independent and isolated.
