The motion of matter within the expanding universe posits the existence of both space and time, and time posits a beginning and an end of space. At the beginning, there could have been no matter since there was no space in which matter could exist. The first atom of matter therefore posits space and the second atom of matter posits linear time. As matter expands, space expands and time measures precisely this expansion of space. Space precedes time, the first moment of time measuring the appearance of the second atom of space. Linear time did not begin at the first moment of the existence of space, which was not a moment of time but the eternal moment of the infinite void. The beginning of the ongoing process of the formation of the physical universe, whether it began with an atom of immense mass containing all of the density of matter that ever will be present in the physical universe as is postulated in the first theoretical law of thermodynamics, or whether it began with a simple atom of hydrogen containing one proton and one electron which divided and reproduced itself while continuing to disintegrate and associate into the various combinations of protons and electrons that make up the heavier elements expanding the universe of space in time within the infinite void, the beginning of this process is the beginning of a finite and temporal universe and not the beginning of the eternal void, which can have no beginning in time since it contains no space where physical matter could exist and time could come into play. The physical universe is a temporal space within which everything is relative, that came into existence within an eternal, infinite and absolute void. The physical theorists of academia also posit an infinite vacuum as the ground in which the universe began and posit the beginning of the universe of form as an inflationary moment that occurred before linear time began. This inflationary moment and this vacuum is, of course, the void of absolute being within which the physical universe came into existence, an eternal moment and an infinite void to which the expansion of the universe can only aspire and which it can never attain.
The absolute is nothing, the infinite void, and the void is the only absolute. The void is spirit, immaterial, the source and being of every living entity within the material universe. The only infinite possibility within the universe is the possibility for human consciousness to grasp the infinite void. To be conscious of being nothing is the highest realization of consciousness, the highest achievement of human life.
We live in an expanding material universe that began at the first moment of time. Before the beginning of this universe there was nothing, and after the end of the physical universe there will also be nothing. It is within this nothing that the physical universe is expanding in time and in space, which is to say, that its expansion creates time and space within the infinite nothingness out of which it emerged and into which it is expanding. This nothing is absolute, infinite and eternal, while the physical universe is relative, finite and temporal. Viewed from within the universe of relativity the absolute is nothing, it does not exist. Only the relative universe exists and it came into existence at its beginning out of nothing, out of the absolute, out of a true vacuum in which there is not even a presentiment of materiality.
►Life did not come into being. It did not become. It simply is, and always has been. It neither came into being, nor can it cease from being. It is eternal and forever. Let life on earth therefore be a preparation for eternal life. Let death be considered a delusion of the fallen intellect, fallen, that is, from subjective contemplation of the absolute and eternal principles into objective reflection on the relativity of existence, the realm ruled by death.
►If we assume that if only Descartes had realized that his geometry was merely a poetic utterance and he had not taken it so seriously then the so-called modern world would not be in such a crisis of faith in absolute principles as it is, then our assumption would be false. Human life, every form of life, involved as it is in the tendencies of the finite material universe towards entropy, must follow a course set from the beginning. We are in a spiral away from the source of our being and only a faith in the absolute principles emanating from that source, which transcend the material values with which immersion in civilization imbues us from our youth, is able to reestablish us in a moral relationship with that being which is also our destiny, if we so choose. Morality is the discipline of the relationship with absolute being and the true philosophy is the discovery of that morality.
