Eternal life

Life is eternal in terms of quantum time, and limited in terms of experienced time.  

Phenomenon explained : 

"You are eternal" Most believers, including mainstream Christians, believe that their soul will continue eternally in some form after they die. This belief begs questions as to what a soul is, when a soul is born, how a soul affects the actions of its owner, or why it is is that a soul needs a body in order to be aware of itself.


As discussed in the lemma end of the universe, quantum time will go on forever and the universe will continue expanding forever, but experienced time is limited.

As quantum time goes on, it may be expected that the trend to ever higher concepts will continue. For this is the natural tendency of the universe, if only because each new expression, once present, will never disappear, whereas we have no reason to expect that is a natural limit to the ability of quanta to combine to produce new quanta. As sound became notes, notes became music, and music became an expression of our souls, with each step adding something that was not present in the previous step, so, in all areas of thought, there will be unbounded progression.

Eternal life

Man lives in experienced time, not quantum time. Experienced time slows down, relative to quantum time, as more mass is added to the universe. In due course, it will be slowed down so much that eons of quantum time last less than a breath. As the mass of the universe tends to infinity, the speed of experienced time tends toward zero. The amount of experienced time is limited. There will be an end of experienced time.

For those who are alive at the end of time, the lead up to the end will be thrilling. Higher concepts will be experienced within ever shorter intervals. They will be experienced as a cosmic climax, beyond the power of words to describe, for how can one find words for concepts that have yet to find themselves? All we can say is that both the frequency and the level will rise to a totally unprecedented cosmic crescendo. With all due respect to T.S. Eliot, the universe will end with a bang, not a whimper!


This explanation is speculation, at least as likely to be right as the alternatives, and therefore tentatively credible.
