The Law of Zero and Fixed Properties of Time
It's been awhile since I've visited this subject. Let us look at the law of zero and fixed properties of time. Zero signifies nothing. When we add zero to any number such as 1, 2, or 3, we get that number, 1, 2 or 3. If we subtract these numbers from zero, we get zip or negative values since a positive integer is subtracted from a non-value. Consider two identical bookshelves. They are each 1 and 2. Since no two things are completely identical such as numbers or bookshelves for that matter, we consider the universe as fixed. Each bookshelf is one since a zero can be added to equal itself. If we added another bookshelf like it, we would gain an excess bookshelf that is also not identical to its preceding self as a fixed value that can be subtracted by zero. Time is ultimately the zero sum game. Because of the addition of one such as one unit of time that can be extrapolated by itself but is not identical to the multiplication of that self, we consider all properties of time as fixed properties. I can have two identical cups of coffee but they can't be categorically identical because of their autonomy since they occupy time and space, respectively. If you multiply the cup of coffee by itself, it would still be autonomous, because of its inherent value, as an entity that can be subtracted itself by zero to equal itself. As a matter of identity and autonomy, all entities can be subtracted by themselves to equal themselves, thus preserving their fixed values. Zero seems to stand alone and seems to be the start of all life. The number one, that is added to zero, and multiplied infinitely and autonomously, seems to indicate a fixed value. According to Wikipedia, the word zero is derived from the Arabic for "it was empty". Indeed, zero is like the glass jar containing the sands of time, that are infinite and autonomous and can be multiplied and added to themselves and by themselves to equal themselves. Time as the zero sum game tells us that all things come from zero and can revert to zero since they are free of themselves or self-identical. Zero is the monstrosity that occupies and overrules their existence. Since they are a derivative of zero, they should be signified by the number zero. We have one sun and millions of rays of light. The rays of light can be traced to the sun, which is one but is also zero, if it ever burned out. Thus, it's position is one, zero, and fixed. Ironically, the latter consumes the former to equal itself. The number one cannot consume itself because it would only add the number one to itself. Only nothing can consume itself and be itself as fixed. Life seems to fade with age but is also immortal as it gives itself away to itself by adding or multiplying itself by zero, in small portions or in droves. Does zero ever die or fade away? Indeed, zero is also dying and preserving itself by multiplying or adding itself to itself as with numbers. In fact, it is already dead since it has no value. We've hit a stone. What is the meaning of life when such a sequence is interminable? What is paradise if it is not a departure from life to a perceived or more desirable life? Or is it simply an immortal life without the capacity to die. What is death when properties of time are fixed and what is the meaning of the death of a natural life. Is it a gateway to an abstract world or the Paradise of the Gospels. How can we better cope with reality? Here's hoping that more will come to light as we continue our series on fixed properties of time.
