Ek Bar

Ek bar tu is teraf dekhlay,
Ek bar tu meri holay,
Merah pyar kaabi tu nah kolay,
Ek bar tu mujah bolay,
Kay tum hi say pyar mah karuh,
Kay har bar tum pay hi maruh,
Ek bar merah humraaz,
Jaalnah dey is dil ka chiraagh,
Kaabi nah tu ho heh juddah,
Ek bar millah dey oh mereh khuddah,
Bani heh tu mereh liyah,
Jiyah hu mah sirif tereh liyah,
Kaabi nah humko alaagh karay,
Millah dey tujah,
Kay ek bar nahi, har pal jiyoo,
Kay ek bar nahi,
Terah say pyar, zindaagi bar aur martay dam tak
ku nah karoo.

Tumsay Pyar Karu

Jo tumse pyar karay, ku nahi meh usay pyar karhu,
Jo tum say kereeb ho, ku nahi meh usay kareeb rahu,
Jo tum pay martha rahai, ku nahi meh uspay martha rahu,
Jo tum say dhoor rahai, ku nahi meh usay dhoor rahu,
Jo tum say juddah rahai, ku nahi meh usay juddah rahu,
To ku nah khuddah karah, tu merah rahai,
Kaabi na socha ta kay tumsay pyar na karu.

Har Taraf

In paharo ki lakiro pay ratha hai merah bharam,
Har taraf dekho to nazar atha hai merah yaar ka sanam,
Asmaano pay ratha hai is madah ka karam,
Ek taraf mai, ek taraf merah pyar ka kalam.

Numbers and Fixed Properties of Time

I used to have a stopwatch when I was a kid and I liked using it. It was not like any other watch I had. It was digital, tied to a thick black lace and you could wear it around your neck and measure time. I didn't understand it much only that it measured time and was used by athletes running a race or coaches timing an event. I got bored with it since I had no use for it. Ideally, it required two people at all times, one to start and stop the watch and the other to run the race. I just didn't think anyone would be interested in performing such a menial job. The stopwatch is not like other watches that seem to skip a beat when telling time. A normal watch or clock has an hour hand, a minute hand and a second hand. The stopwatch can measure time in milliseconds, which I thought was very cool. The milliseconds moved very fast, since they're hundredths of a second and I am sure some watches can even measure microseconds. When we look at fixed properties of time, we should know that properties of time can exist as hundredths of a second or even less. Our hearts never seem to skip a beat. Every waking moment of our lives can be reduced to fractions of a second or even less and those properties as fixed, tell us that our time is precious. In fact, we are aging in reverse since those properties are fixed, or it can be said that we are immortal at every moment of our lives. The thought is staggering. Thus, if we turned a stopwatch on and buried it inside the earth, until the earth perished, the time would restart from the moment it started, and the earth would be reborn. Consider numbers. When we read numbers in order, we start from 1 and can end at 100. Each number depends on the numbers that follow or precede them and could not exist on their own. The number 4 would not make sense without a 3, 2, 1 or a 5, 6, 7 and so on. Each number is dependent and interdependent and can be considered fixed values. The number 5 exists for itself and by itself but for itself cannot be by itself. On the infinite scale of numbers, numbers exist for themselves and by themselves, and by themselves, cannot be for themselves. If they ever stopped increasing, they would not stand for themselves since numbers can be counted infinitely, and if they ever did stop, the numbers would be recounted since numbers are fixed values such as properties of time. When we look at numbers and how we measure time, we come to know that immortality should not be seen as a fountain of youth or some angel of youth that appears in the Garden of Paradise, but as a fixed value, that every time and at all times, we are immortal and our lives are standing still in the stillness of time, and the lives that we live are transcendental and undying.

Immortality and Immortal Time

Let's look at the world as an immortal footprint. Life as we know it began millions and billions of years ago and still exists today in some form. Nature is all around us and is ever-changing. How did life began and will it ever end? As we exist today, we see signs of former life everywhere that tells us that many diverse lifeforms have existed before us. When we stand and look at the vast horizon and observe endless vistas that stretch out across the horizon, we sense that other life once existed, that was beautiful, diverse, majestic and strong. We can almost form an image in our mind and confirm that image when we study the historical record. These signs such as historical benchmarks that determine how we see time and understand fixed properties of time are essential to metaphysical, enlightened thinking. Since our existence depends on former life that existed and the existence of that former life depends on our existence in an ever-expanding and eternal world, than that former life that once existed and does not anymore, is immortalized. It never perished since it exists for us in a future time and we exist for it in a former time since all properties of time are eternal. Only time has passed and life has perished and the earth has aged but the earth is still young or immortal by way of its being in an eternal world. Such former life has only left its footprint in the sand or an impression in time that can fade away but is always immortal. It appears for its immortal sake and time, while it passes only ensures its immortality so while it may perish and future beings take its place, they are also immortal for the sake of their former selves. Time is unified and since it cannot leave a lasting impression, it is also fixed, thus bearing its immortal scales. Thus, while we are living so is all former life, since properties of time are fixed and do not die. We must strive for excellence, and yearn for immortality and ensure that we can transcend our lives to ensure that our immortality is sacred and forms a spiritual communion with the divine.

Memory and Fixed Properties of Time

Does time remember? It would seem yes, since time on earth can be measured and we can relate back to history with a fixed pen. Animal remains, rocks and other natural life leave their mark on the planet and tell the story of time. Since time is itself, immortal, these fragments of life leave a memory for future time or all time and past time. Time is fixed and memories can be good or bad but they are just memories. Consider the example of the traveling man and the bird or in this case, a fox. If the man follows the bird or the fox in one direction, it might lead him into a bottomless pit where it finally comes to rest and the man may perish at the point of destination. However, if there was a point of intersection that occurred before that fatal point of destination, the bird might avert the man to an alternate destination where the outcome may be vastly different. Such as a train traveling to one location is averted to a different destination when the tracks are switched. If the tracks weren't switched, the destination would be quite different, but in the end the specificity of the destination determines its fixed properties. The potential for fixed time opportunities always exist so while the man may perish due to the cunning of the fox or the bird that leads him to a bottomless pit, the interdependence and independence of both of these agents of time, would rule this as a time anomaly and thus, dispelled. Since the bird exists for the man and the two, are only separated by time and vice-a-verse. At the edge of the bottomless pit, before falling in, the man might remember where he has been or have some conception of the time that it took for him to reach this fatal point. Like when we say, my life flashed before my eyes, when encountering danger. The memory could have been good or bad, such as lovers traveling on the train who might have a good memory of that experience before reaching their final destination. But alas, that memory is fleeting or a rubbing point on the tracks of time. Since overall time is fixed and we are only standard bearers in the hourglass of time, memory is only a by-product or non-product of our time-telling role. Thus, the impact of bad or good memories on our psychology should be evaluated by the ultimate value of time. Since bad can be good and good can be bad, it should not unhinge us from our ultimate time-keeping role, which is to honor our immortality or immortal being. Irrespective if the train traveled straight ahead or was averted in one direction or the other, it is only a vehicle of time, covering a specified distance, and the destination, while good, bad or even fatal, does not overrule our logical apportioning of time. Thus, memories are created due to our time-keeping role, but those memories do not lessen us or enhance us but only pay homage to our immortal being. How are we utilizing our immortal being with respect to our time-keeping role? It seems necessary to dispel our memories or unremember ourselves in order to live an immortal life. If we are promised any success in such a task, our lives would become transcendental.

Parts of Speech, the Use of I and Fixed Properties of Time

Let's look at properties of time from the point of view of parts of speech. The use of the word I is an important concept. The word I is an intrinsic value. It refers to the person itself. We use the word I to understand ourselves. Who we are, what we are, and what is our self-importance. I refer to myself as I and refer to someone else as you. Since my counterpart may also be an I, the inverse stands out. Thus, we say I love you or you love me. Notice you do not love I, since I is an intrinsic value. Me is a objectified term and thus, when you love me, the word me is objectified. It's the way I view myself or someone else views me. Of course, you should also love I but as a a part of speech, that would be impossible. Consider then, something happened to me and it would be incorrect to say that something happened to I since I is subjective. Thus, you and me also form the objective we and the subjective us. As we, you and I can act objectively, but as us we are using the subjective form. For example, we did would be correct but in the subjective form of us, we cannot such as I did and me did not. Something happened to me but I, it did not, or something happened to us, but to we, it did not. But I reigns supreme, since something happened to us and something happened to me, but to I, it did not. Thus, the great philosophers, say I think, therefore I am because I is the highest value. Thus, fixed properties of time that utilize parts of speech such as they, them, those, us and we, leave everything up to the intrinsic value of I and thus, are regarded as fixed properties of time. The inverse exists and so does the converse but, but if the inverse existed, the converse cannot, and if they do exist together, they uphold the all-embracing I. For example, if there is no I, there can be no us, we, them, they or those. When I is present, so are us, we, they, them or those. I is in an intrinsic value, the highest value and has profound meaning. I can never not exist since, it is an exclusive form, subsisting by itself, for itself. It would be absurd to say, I cannot think, therefore I cannot am. I must think, therefore I must am. Even saying I died is wrong, since I am. Since I am, I can never die. Thus, I becomes illuminated, transcendental and all-knowing. I as immortal being, cannot not never exist, and must always exist because it is and always be an intrinsic value.

Properties of Time in a Dynamic Universe

On this blog, we will cover the gravity of objects in space that makes the universe dynamic. All reality, thus, is dynamic due to the three-dimensional aspects of our universe. Gravity is an essential concept. It is the force that's shared by all the planets and stars that make them move in space. Stars move less since there is less mass and therefore less gravitational pull. You also feel less gravitational pull on the moon. Since mass dictates how much gravity is felt and shared by the stars and planets, the lower frequency of gravity on less dense planets shows us that our universe has a blind spot. Space is all encompassing and thus flattens any concept of uniformity. It takes time for the planets to move on their axis or complete a revolutionary cycle. Even the sun rotates, though it takes more time due to it's composition of gases. However, the movement of the planets within the all-encompassing framework of space creates an inverse relationship with all objects in space. Gravity ultimately provides movement of the planets in a uniform way. The force is present and like a magnetic force is constant. As long as there is mass there is gravity. But in a zero-sum game such as space, the planets are reduced to inert phenomena, with no mass and no gravity, and no potential for life such as our own planet. Thus, we might be inclined to say that such entities do not exist, and if they didn't exist they would be immortal if we consider fixed properties of time. And if we should be inclined to say they do exist, we should also conclude that they cannot perish. Thus, all properties of time on earth would be fixed or relative since the existence of the stars and the planets cannot be completely validated in the midst of the enigma of space. Thus, if we are mortal beings in a vast space as independent and interdependent properties of time in a fixed world, then we are also immortal beings in a vast space as independent and interdependent properties of time in a dynamic world, such as a time before time.

Nature of Time and Immortality

Let's take our discussion a bit further to account for the infinitude of space. It is largely agreed that space is infinite and expanding. When we look at fixed and relative properties of time, we observe that the earth is a pressurized object in the midst of an infinite and ever-expanding universe. While the pressure is constantly applied to the earth's surface, it is also released back into space or does not seem possible since pressure applied and pressure released would be counter-intuitive. This would almost make it seem that the earth did not exist or that space and the earth were estranged. Consider a balloon that has two plugs. On one side, we can blow pressure into the balloon and on the other side the pressure would be released but the balloon would still stay suspended since it would constantly be pressurized. But the mere fact that the balloon must stay suspended this way might make us think that we are witnessing an optical illusion, that of the balloon being suspended. The same concept can be applied to our own planet that is suspended in space in an ever-expanding universe. If the earth was not there, then there would be no pressure at all, but the all-encompassing nature of the universe might not feel any loss, since it would not matter much if we consider the infinitude of space. Objects in space may seem realer than they appear. Such a concept, that of infinite space that's spotted by planets and stars that are pressurized, leads us to consider that the entire universe is based on an inverse rule. In an ever expanding universe that's pressurized and not, it might almost seem to us that the earth was flat and thus, relative and fixed properties of time are true and can be validated. But even if the earth was not flat and we considered the universe at face value, fixed properties of time would still exist since the inverse exists. It's almost as if I planted my hand into a bed of sand and made an impression. Likewise, the earth makes an impression in space but since space is all-inclusive, the impression does not hold. It can also be said that points of relativity exist but they are also unified and they exist. But in a fixed world, if they are unified, it can also be said that they do not exist. The concept of infinite space puts a stone in the heels of our shoes. In the final sum, if properties of time exist and are unified but they exist, and infinite space makes the inverse true, than we should all be immortal beings.

Fixed Relative Properties of Time Within a Three-Dimensional World

Let us consider a third value when we observe fixed relative properties of time, that of depth. Depth is something that we all experience in everyday life, that which gives life a more fuller and deeper meaning. It shows up in art and everyday life and makes us happier to see what's beyond the horizon, a future worth striving for. The easiest way to understand depth would be to measure air through a cone-shaped funnel. If I blow air through the funnel, the air will necessarily fill the depth of the funnel, and not directly blow out of the funnel. This is an interesting concept and must be explored further. Fixed relative properties of time show us the interconnectedness of the world when we consider the time that it takes for travel that is specified such as walking from point A to point B. Entities and objects that occupy space are also subject to the laws of depth. Consider the example of the man walking underneath the bird. If the bird was not directly overhead and there existed a few degrees of separation from the man, and it came to rest at a designated point, the man would obviously have to use additional time to cover the space that is used if the separation existed. Obviously he can zigzag to save time but the properties of time would still be fixed if the space is to be covered. We would then measure the time that the man travels by calculating the space that's covered by these travelers and apply a three-dimensional value. The three dimensional value will also account for the distance between the man and the bird which can measured by the depth that exists between them. What if the bird was on a collision course with the man? Obviously, if it was only few degrees to the right or left of the man, it would miss the man completely, and there would be no collision, thus justifying its own fixed properties. If the man moved to the right or to the left, a collision would occur since the space would be negated. But obviously, the collision would be impossible since the bird and the man are truly interdependent as a value of time. If the bird flying by the man, missed the man, it would only be a marvel or an accident since the man following the bird shares a relativity of time. Whereas depth exists all around us, it creates an inverse relationship with time. Since all points on Earth can likely be measured for depth, let's say a stick in the mud pointing up to the sun, then a bird traveling to any point on the Earth, would theoretically still be pointed back to the stick in the mud. If the stick in the mud, sank into the mud, and disappeared, the inverse would still exist as a fixed value of time and the bird that may be a million miles away, may not even sense such a loss since all entities are pointified in a three-dimensional world. Returning to the example of the cone-shaped funnel, we can know that air traveling through the funnel will fill the funnel before leaving out the other end. The funnel contains depth and it can be measured by applying a three-dimensional value thus giving it a fixed quality. If the funnel was not there, the air that I blow from my mouth would only be released into space and thus occupy space in a fixed sense. The bird and the man, as scales of time, measure time respectively, but whereas the inverse is true as a value of depth, it may seem that the entire world is on a collision course but, the existence of fixed properties of time that are interdependent create a dynamic world, where space is ever-increasing and to each his own. Space itself overrules any concept of depth and time since it can't be measured and encompasses and engulfs everything we can ever know but is still subject to these values. Since the points exist they cannot collide since each is interdependent as a value of time and is fixed, thus presenting a basis for illuminated being. If they do collide, the values of fixed properties of time within a three-dimensional world do not collapse but exist by way of interdependence. The bird being far away from me or me being too far from the bird, makes no difference to me or the bird, and if either perishes on the journey to reach the other, or one perishes and the other prospers, it would not negate their interdependence as we discussed before, since they are mutual entities and thus, the destruction or survival of the other is directly dependent on the other. Depth only enhances the relative time controversy and why in a three-dimensional world, it creates points of reference that are mutually relative, interconnected and interdependent. The points of reference if they ever cross would have to appropriate for time, thus it can seem that we can never lift ourselves off the ground. Even if the earth was not present, the points of reference would still exist within the vast nothingness of space, as potential values of time. They cannot be negated since they are interdependent.

The Law of Pressure and Relative Properties of Time

I'm in the midst of moving and I have to write this blog quickly but I did want to jot down a few thoughts as a follow-up to my earlier blog on relative properties of time. I wanted to discuss these values as they relate to pressure and force that exist all around us. I am only thinking of this since I needed to figure out how to keep my doors from closing and imagined how a door is made to stay open by applying a small amount of pressure as that of a human shoe or door stop. Even the slightest amount of force is able to keep even the heaviest door open or in a worst case, keep an intruder out of your home. Probably that's why many people complain when you put your foot in their business. That reminded me of the old story of the little Dutch boy who kept his finger in the crack of a dam to keep it from bursting. Let us visualize this story as it relates to our discussion. The boy has applied a small amount of force to a crack in the dam to keep the entire dam from bursting and thus saving the town from a disastrous flood. The crack in the dam represents the enormous amount of pressure that can be released if the dam breaks and the boy's bravery and wit seem to win the day until other men other arrive to lead the repairs. But in such a situation, how can so much pressure be withstood by so little force so that such an event can be averted. A balloon also holds pressure and can be pricked by a small needle that releases that pressure through a cataclysmic event into the atmosphere. The pressure is dispersed into the atmosphere creating significant amounts of reverberation and eventually will settle down somewhere. The balloon being pricked only created a reverberation and no significant change in the atmosphere and alas, only transient noise and confusion when the balloon is popped. But something as small and as sharp as a needle has exhibited a significant impact on the universe. Similarly, the boy with his finger in the dam has prevented the dam from cracking and releasing a tremendous amount of pressure, that of the water, and saving the town from flood and devastation. In both cases a small amount of force is applied to an object and an enormous amount of pressure is withstood. It almost seems inconceivable but it is true. Our planet too is conceivably pressurized by space which exacts pressure on our planet, that the Earth withstands as an object of force, thus providing a delicate counterbalance to the weight of our universe. If that pressure was ever released and a convergence of space, or pressure occurred, than our planet would be destroyed as a defiant object of force, thus releasing pressure from space in all different directions and disrupting our universe. This goes back to relative points of intersection such as the man and the bird. If the two entities collided, pressure would be released, but if the two entities persist in their course, the pressure would still exist as a matter of force. Thus, the boy with his finger in the dam only represents the force that's required to keep the dam from cracking and if that force was absent the dam would indeed crack but the existence of such a force would withstand significant pressure, that of the water on the other side. Moreover, any containment of pressure almost always requires a meager amount of force to withstand the pressure that is being extroverted. Such as that of the balloon being pricked. The pressure is contained but the force applied to it is insignificant. Is space a containment of pressure and the earth simply a force that is being applied to disperse or withstand that pressure? Is this delicate counterbalance necessary for our planet to exist and why? If the pressure was not exacted, would the earth then fall out from under itself like a cocktail napkin? It seems that pressure wins the day since even if the earth did not exist the pressure would converge on itself and create other worlds and the universe may still be expanded, considering the transformational nature of the universe. So as when a balloon is pricked by a needle creates a disruption and dispersion of pressure in the universe, the mere fact that the balloon is pressurized makes for a moot argument. It's pressure contained or pressure withstood, despite which, pressure released or pressure dispersed, and a force that no longer can withstand or withhold that pressure as an empty can. Force and pressure seem to intermingle all the time and at all levels creating balance and composition in the universe. The pressure exists despite the force applied or ourselves and objects of force that only disperse and disband as a result of the interplay of such forces. The interplay of these forces are time bound by such discriminating forces that maintain the balance of pressure and force in the universe but alas, cannot give in or give up lest cataclysm befalls our universe. The pressure exists notwithstanding the force applied no matter how small or insignificant and when we swoon at the thought of pressure converging on itself we are also hearkening the end of the world.

Fixed Relative Time Properties

What is relative time measurement? Let us look at this problem by taking a simple everyday example. Consider a man walking down a street. The man will likely take a predetermined amount of time to reach his destination depending on how fast he is walking, his size and other relative factors. Consider a bird flying overhead as the man walks down the street. The bird will likely reach the same point faster since it is flying or gliding over the same amount of space being considered. If the man looks up he can see the bird flying overhead until it covers the same distance that he is trying to traverse. His sight will compensate for the relative time properties that are lost when such a counterexample is present - that of the bird flying overhead. However, if the bird keeps flying, its speed will likely overcome the man's vision or ability to see it and it will travel out of sight no longer available for the man to observe, thus being out of range of his vision. Since the man can no longer see the bird, it might take him several days or even years until he can cover the entire distance the bird travels. He might eventually see the bird perched upon a tree but by this time, he will have aged by many years and it will have taken him more time versus the bird who has reached that same distance in a shorter period of time. However, these linear considerations need to account for the curvature of space and time thus, the distance the bird and the man travels is likely relative when gravity and the rotation of the earth come into play. However, as far as vision is concerned, even Columbus may have lost sight of the ships traveling the ocean even if the earth was flat since vision is limited, thus time properties are truly uniform. Movement such as that of the bird and the comparative movement of that of the man, is only a marvel and mathematically superficial. Take a step back for a moment. Consider relative points of intersection that of the bird crossing the path of the man at the same time thus causing a collision. As a result, all relative time measurement would cease and a cataclysmic event will have taken place rending time asunder akin to a meteor hitting the planet and obliterating our world. Such a calamity would end the world as we know it and create a million, billion stars that might not be able to support any life at all as a result of such an event and its impact on the universe. Gravity might still exist but the distance from the sun might dull any hope for any life to ever exist but the potential for relative time properties will always exist. If the man is killed or the bird is killed or our planet is destroyed does not hide the fact that relative time properties exist and the separation or destruction of either entity forces an uncertain future or a hyperbolic world (ruled by pervasive ninety-degree angles as that of a clock) or a non-world. To turn to the former, the man need not travel the same distance to outrun the bird, and neither is the bird traveling that distance a philosophical truism but may only be a dynamism. It is simply traveling and fulfilling a material obligation and should be dignified as such. This might also make it seem that the man is always underneath the bird while traveling that same distance. The bird can never out-fly the man since it is simply a denomination of time. The problem must be ignored and we must ask why the traveling bird covering a greater distance than the man produces a relative time controversy. Is the bird meant for the man's consumption or vice versa depending on the type of bird (vulture or bird of prey). If either the man or bird is killed during such an expedition, or the bird outlives the man who may need to cross an entire desert, the relative time properties will remain in force and the bird will never truly enjoy a future since its future is contingent on the man whom it is tagging. Light also travels that same distance and is crucial to sight and thus, light too, is relative as a denomination of time. Thus, relative time properties are highly contentious and bespeak a greater promise somewhere over the horizon.

The Problem of Fixed Time

Today, I'd like to examine the problem of fixed time to continue our discussion. Fixed time is the time designated for an event or action to take place that is being measured. In other words, it is the appointed time for an event to occur. An old Arabic fable gives us a good starting point. Called the Appointment in Samarkand, it tells the story of a man who encounters the Angel of Death in a souk and fearing for his life, returns to his master's house and tells him that he needs to flee the city and hires the fastest horse to travel to Samarkand to escape Death. When the master goes to the marketplace and asks Death why he had threatened his servant, Death replies that he was surprised to see his servant in Baghdad when he had an appointment with him in Samarkand. This is an interesting fable and one that can be a good basis to examine the problem of fixed time. Consider an ordinary, everyday example. When we awake, we need to rush to school to be at school at a fixed time. If we are not at school at the appointed time, we will find ourselves bereft of ourselves or out of place and out of time. Our time to be at school is thus considered fixed as opposed to overall time since we could be anywhere else we wanted to be and continue to measure time. Thus as a measurement of time, wherever we find ourselves in the continuum of space and time is considered fixed. Thus, when Death meets the servant in Baghdad it does not matter much that he has to travel to Samarkand to find the servant since the event could take place at any time or at any place. We are simply shifting ourselves from one place to another such as the sands in the hourglass while overall time or all time simply measures our progress. This would nullify the concept of death altogether since overall time or fixed time can take place anywhere or at any time and the old fable becomes a mere cultural, religious epistle. Death does not need to travel to Samarkand since death could have occurred in Baghdad and the shift that takes place is superficial and the time that was spared is merely a counter-intuitive propagation. As a measurement of time, meeting death is a mere illusion since we can never escape the confines of the hourglass and our dignity is preserved as a measurement of fixed time in the overall scope of all time. This gives way to phrases such as "I'm passing the time," or "I'm killing time" and admonishes against wasting time. Death may be natural but it is not the end all or be all when the problem of fixed time is considered. Since my dying is impossible as a measurement of time in the vast expanse of fixed and relative time priorities, I can never truly flee death and neither can death truly diminish me. Committing suicide would be a farce in this respect. Thus, the possibility of existence becomes supernatural.
