Law of the Eternal

The Law of the Eternal states that if there even exists the possibility of something, then that thing exists, de facto. For in the space of infinite possibility and boundless time, everything exists at once (cf. Quantum Superposition), since the probability of any proposition reaches 1.0 in the limit. However, like the vast field of irrational numbers, the probability of finding it may be zero. Though note, that the very act of conceiving it is a creative act within the boundless and places it out there in existence too. Note bene: The philosophical question of "Does it exist before it is imagined?" must remain in the realm of the unknowable.


Two notes when referring to such an enigmatic metaphysical concept:

  • The usage of the word "possibility" above is a convenience within the context of time, for in the aforementioned space where all is held *at once*, All simply Is.
  • Contradictory propositions are simply held orthogonally to each other (not unlike how the imaginary numbers are held independently from the real numbers), so there is no real "logical problem".

Significant Applications

Perhaps the most significant application of this Law (and result?) is in answer to the question of the existence of God. If it is possible that there could be a perfect formulation of the Universe (akin to a unified Theory of Everything), then it should surely have been created/discovered/embodied "by now" somewhere. And that someone would have a Name.

Note also that, in relation to such a question, Mankind also appears to be in the process of completing such an act (and holds a narrative with such a promise from the Garden of Eden). OR, considered from another point of view, in application of the above Law, Man has already accomplished said act, and those reading herein (i.e. *you*) are merely the hold-outs, in limbo, for those who, with respect to Free Will, do not yet believe.

Compare also as a more specific formulation of Plato's Realm of Ideals.
