The Nature of Eternity.
Copyright Allan Webber (BSc, Grad Dip Ed Admin),
There are one or more eternal/timeless zones where
things endure, but their dimensions don't include space-time. These
are not obscure or fanciful zones since humankind have used them to
understand the universe for many millennia. They include numbers,
geometry, primal universal constants, fractals and chaos. And the common
thread in all these zones is continuity within a dimension that isn't
definable by space, time or space-time.
Eternal zones have space-time or matter-energy dimensions but they have order and uniquely defined members and no
matter where you are in this universe or any other the result obtained
when they are accessed is identical.
Mathematics is one such eternal zone and if you are
in a remote part of the galaxy you can know the result from adding two
numbers will be independent of mass-energy and space-time factors .
Concepts are another set that reside in an
independent eternal zone with awareness and existence being two of its
And there is also an eternal zone where fundamental
patterning in bounded systems resides. Anywhere in this universe you can expect the range
and rules of shapes, sounds and interactions to be the same.
But there is another whose existence is often
ignored; it is the pre-universe from which our mass-energy and space-time
Humans are a product of processes in a space-time
system so it is difficult for us to comprehend that there is any other
way of being and so we take the zones that exist eternally for granted.
Yet, these zones are critically important to the creation
and functioning of our universe; they provide it with a portfolio
of form and structure upon which
the universe, each form of life and every element unthinkingly draws.
Many of these eternal zones we experience and use every day but we
don't give much weight to their importance in the structure and creation
of the universe. Nor do we consider that new eternal zones might emerge
or exist within our universe because of new avenues of access triggered
by the continuity of mass-energy and space-time.
Although not much attention has been given to
this way of seeing the universe there is strong evidence for such
systems. For instance there is the phenomenon of light as well
as the peculiar zone at the beginning of our universe which science says
is a very minute fraction (10-33) of a second long.
To most persons it must
seem peculiar that
scientists choose such a small amount of time for the actions which physics needs if the universe is to exist at all. So much to do
yet so little time. So much to explain yet none is given. It must seem
to most that the
reason for it being so lies in "Trust me I am a doctor (of Physics,
Mathematics, astronomy etc.)" Yet the reasons why the above duration has
been claimed by scientists is that they relate to the time of decay of the most
fundamental particles which formed and form our universe.
That peculiarly small zone of time is a recognition
of the transition of the universe out of the pre-existing eternal zone in
which terms such as mass-energy and space-time have no meaning.
The singularity that is at the commencement of our
universe is the instant that a section of the pre-existing state changed
in a singular manner; it gave access to a pattern where the concept of
Until that instant there couldn't be time or space
but upon its onset the innate patterns for enduring substance took over.
Our universe then evolved into the shapes and events defined by that
Physicists and mathematicians do
marvel at the fragile precision of this formation process. After all the
constants needed for gravity, light, quantum mechanics and everything
else only work if they are all in balance with the harmony of the rest.
Our humanity channels our perceptions even when a person is
trained in science and so time and space must be ascribed as the reality
of this place in which we exist regardless of
the seeming irrationality of the universe's origin.
It is obvious this is difficult for us humans to conceive but it is
important that we analyze its possibilities if we wish to unravel the
manner in which the universe works.
And we can know a lot about
such zones through our ever expanding knowledge of how light and the
original formation-phase interface with our material universe.
But we must be aware that this idea of eternal zones when used in a way totally
free of logic or disciplen may be flawed.
Many people already rely on a similar concept of
eternal zones without any practical
basis for so doing. However these have little relation to the
eternal zones that this paper discusses.
What I want to present in this
analysis is that which we can and do know about eternal domains that provide physical evidence
as to how
their operational rules can be set.
My evidence must begin with the realm of electro-magnetic waves where
light is a very real aspect in human lives.
It is already known light is eternal
within its own realm but imparts a physical effect whenever it interacts
with the physical universe.
To an observer within our universe it appears that
light travels forever and through all space except in the minute zones
where it interacts with matter.
Wave particle duality, the
switching of fundamental form, is also a recognised attribute of all electro-magnetic waves including light. It
is a fundamental aspect of quantum theory.
And just as the
Rosetta stone with its testament written in dual languages enabled the
decoding of ancient Egyptian hieroglyphs, the twinned nature of
electro-magnetic waves gives us a window into the laws for at least one
type of eternal domain.
By these interactions we know that an
eternal realm may touch upon the material domain but it requires
specific circumstances for this to occur.
A fundamental issue is that though light can
travel forever throughout all space it is not omnipresent like gravity,
electric or magnetic fields, that is newly formed light
isn't existent at every point of time and space or every instant of
It is selective in its appearance having a deducible
source and a detectable end point. However these two points mean lights
presence in space-time is predictable (using a wave-particle model) from the instant of its creation
in space-time until its demise. This predictability is the basis of
our laws for describing the motion of EMWs but it has also fostered our
assumption despite the duality evidence that its path in the universe is
Our task of understanding light has been
made easier for this domain because EMWs and the material universe were
created as a complementary twin.
But there is a range of ways in
which eternal zones impact on the physical universe that were not
visually apparent at the instant of the Big Bang. They were there but
their impact was at that time indiscrenable.
And many are
well known to us. They include zones for numbers, geometry, primal
patterns, fractals and chaos.
In these zones the basic properties
have the quality of being ever-present, that is they are able to be
tapped into at any and every point in space-time with exactly the same
Yet they differ from light since zones such as that containing number, geometry
and patterns have no active impact on the physical
universe. All their influence is passive. However the material
universe taps into these domains with the resultant forms producing the
rationalities we observe. And they conform with the same principles that
apply to emergent universe; they have an
orderly definable set of members able to be verified by repetition.
The common thread in all these zones is
continuity which arises in a dimension that isn't set by space,
time or space-time.
Each type of continuity includes two simple
elements; cohesion and repetition.
Dual Elements of Continuity: Cohesion and Repetition.
first element, cohesion, is the creator of duality; a twinned
pair that persists across a specifiable dimension. This twinning
principle is the primary element of continuity.
cohesion relates to any property that causes an identifiable pair. It is
this element that leads to zones where proximity relationships apply.
Through cohesion continuous sequencing is initiated.
second element, repetition, is the genitor of pattern. It is at
this point that continuity of form is established.
from an ordered universe even though it may contain
an infinite number of eternal zones of varying expanse. Chaos differs
because it is a
realm whose dominant aspect is discontinuity.
When the two
continuity elements produce an eternal pattern that allows the discontinuity
to be overcome then the primary mechanism for the process called evolution is born.
It is from this basis that all universes, including
our own, arise.
Resonance as the
Fundamental Mode of Interaction between paired dimensions.
Interaction between paired dimensions happens as an inevitable
consequence of conservation laws, it cannot but be so.
This aspect offers the means for either dimension to
have access to some of the properties of the other. However this access

conditions allow interaction between paired dimensions.
attributes of resonance for each zone are quite distinctive.
Light is tuned by the cohesion of the following twinning factors;
E = hf (Energy= Boltzmann constant x frequency),
E = mc2 (Energy = mass x the speed of light
[squared]) and c = fλ (the speed of light=
frequency x wavelength).
The cohesion of the realm of light with the material universe
has always been provided by the shared properties of frequency and
energy. For EMWs and the material universe these equations define the
interfaces by which each realm accesses the
Likewise number inevitably is tuned to the material universe wherever there
exists a notable continuity. The defining continuity is the cohesion
aspect by which number is perceived.
Pattern is established whenever a continuity contains
both repetition and addition. In this instance the cohesion factor
between the material universe and the eternal pattern zone is the process

zone whether it be eternal or space-time in nature produces patterns
relevant to the resonant gateway between the zones.
pattern for number is therefore based on linear sequences. Its most
complex forms are typically a series of branches of a binary form.
Number is the primal eternal zone; all others are more complex and
offer patterns in accord with that complexity.
Geometric form is one
such set and while it still uses only cohesion and repetition it gives
access to shapes with sequentially increasing dimensional range.
The interface of the material universe with any eternal zone taps into
that zone at a complexity level matched to its own.
