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 partly 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.
Notes
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 probably have a Name.
In other words,
- if eternity exists AND
- if perfection is possible, AND
- if it's possible to be/become everything in the universe THEN
- GOD exists
(...But, did you kill her/him?)
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.
Exhibit 1
Here's an interesting, esoteric tidbit:
- e^{ln 2} = 2.
Now that is 2.718... the transcental number e to another irrational ln 2 = 0.6931.... and resulting in a perfect integer. What is the probability of that happening within the field of the uncountable(?) reals? When you understand what e represents, you'll begin to understand when the word "transcendental" applies. That is more than just irrational -- it is something that touches, well, the transcendant: the Creation.
I posit that the equal sign is tranferring values from one mathematical domain (YHVH), to ours, where there are integers. Algebraically, the exponent and the natural logarithm cancel out, and you're just left with the free variable. But you can't do that arithmetically. That's two different domains of thought.
