What are Black Holes?
Hi Mead! My personal idea about black holes was formulated in my journal, when I wrote about time lines. Filling flesh onto those musings, I suggest that black holes are light travelling in an opposing direction from us. Given the vast distances in the universe, imagine shining a torch into it and seeing light streaming from it. If you switch off the torch, the light previously emited will continue to travel. Once it progresses beyond the distance of the speed of light it will no longer be visible to the torch bearer. But the particles of light will continue their journey. Such an event would make it appear as though light is being swallowed and can't escape. A black hole could represent the light from a sun or a galaxy that is moving in an opposing direction from us. It could be our sun or galaxy.
Unless this retreating light encounters something that could reflect it back or refract it, the light will continue to appear to us as a dense mass of powerful blackness.
The possibility that emerges from this is that black holes could tell us where we are going and where we have been, in context to the universe as a whole.
As for hell? The word comes from the German and it means light. Hell is spoken of as a fiery domain. It seems the most tormenting and destructive position for a soul to be is within the fusing and turmoil of a sun. It could be purgatory or annihilation - or a cleansing process in line with higher ascension.
Could black holes be the tunnel described by so many as a route to Heaven?

Can Souls whizz around the Universe?
Hi Mead! It seems we could be light whizzing about. Except that a soul bound by the speed of light attempting to travel the universe would seem equivalent to a man walking around the world. How long would it take for a man (assuming he can walk on water) to walk the surface of the Earth in its entirety?
If Earth is the 'North Pole' in the universe, a man could begin there and take an ever widening orbit around the 'Pole'. He takes one step out from the 'Pole' and then walks around it. Then he takes another step away from the 'Pole' and walks around the 'Pole' once more. Eventually, each step out would lead him to the equator, with each circumnavigation becoming longer. From the equator he will take the step out that will mean he is circling the South Pole - and each circumnavigation becomes slightly less.
Will it take him a thousand years to do this? Or a hundred thousand? Or a million?
Given this analogy, it would appear that a man (soul) will consider anything beyond a seven mile radius (c. 2 hours walk) as long distance travelling. Many people live (or lived) and die (or died) without ever walking beyond that seven mile radius.
In Ireland, there is a pub (tavern) called the 'Deadman's. It is named thus because it is the only pub within a seven mile radius (approx).
Yet the stagecoach (supported by stabling and inns at six mile intervals in England), then the train, then the car and bike (supported by Tarmacadam roads), then the airplane, then jet propulsion, then the space rocket etc...
Suddenly seven miles becomes of no moment to many people today.
In essence, I am saying that if death releases a soul from organic restriction then it may well release it from universal law restrictions (as we perceive them in our mortal form). Of course, it may not do this at all if we are particles of light (as souls). If so, we will be bound by that seven mile radius (in analogy).
For God to be omnipotent, it would indicate an ability akin to 'rocket science' in comparison to a man restricted to walking everywhere. It could be argued that souls whizzing at the speed of light fits this analogy fine.
But can you see the limitations for souls (and God) within that argument?
As for Hell (or the devil - or evil), my journal claims that there is only one emotion that is elemental. That is Love. All other emotions are by-products of this elemental force. A perfect one liner summary of this was discovered post journal by me when one of my old friends (Stef Kamil Carlens) quoted a Tom Waits comment when being interviewed by a magazine:
Put this analogy onto souls - and then apply the catalyst of fear - and a rational explanation for all our actions on this planet materialises. A sense of betrayal (of love) or the fear that this will happen creates all the by-products like Hate, Envy, Resentment, etc...
But if we apply God to the universal sequence I presented to you we come to a defineable reason why God will always be more powerful than negative forces that have sprung up as a re-action to his work. God initiated the plan and the forces of Hell can only re-act to it - and owe their initial existence to the creativity of God.
The art community is a perfect mirror to this. The journal amplifies the mechanics. The creative force will take the critic and the non-creative technicians by surprise. Higher creative talents and technicians will appreciate the input of a creative force, but the lower beings will sink to envy and malicious put downs to inhibit and stem this force. A creative force seeking a higher path will trigger a countering that will resort to baseness to negate it.
So there will be times when God may seem defeated and hounded out of the scheme of things. But his creativity is limitless and able to see things his foes can not. When he seems most defeated and discredited? He will re-emerge stronger.
In summary, someone might write a song and refuse to let others hear it because they fear their song (or its idea) will be stolen. So no one ever hears that song - and the person dies and the song has died with it. A confident creative force will not worry if a song has been stolen in some way, because he has a mass of other songs both written and about to be written (at some future date).
On the other hand, a person who produces a song and then spends the next five years trying to market it is not confident about his creativity. He is confident only about that song.
Analogy? Souls on Earth are busy trying to market a song. God is busy creating the universe and producing song after song. It's the one hit wonder on one side - and Bob Dylan on the other.

Does Space and Time exist?

I have been reading a book entitled Time and Space by Barry Dainton and
want to pass on the following information to you. As we know space and
time are both invisible so this naturally leads us to the question of ,
"Do they exist?".

There are currently two prevailing philosophical theories in regard to the
above question. The first is known as Substantivalism and can best be
summed up as:

UNIVERSE* = Things + Space/Time

* original read SPACE which didn't communicate.

The second prevailing theory is known as Relationism and is summed up as:

UNIVERSE= Things +  Spatiotemporal Relations

Relationism contends that space/time do not exist as individual
objects (i.e. If there were no objects; subatomicparticles-> galaxies,
there would be no space and hence no time.)

I basically agree with the latter theory.  However, Einstein's special
theory of relativity contends that gravity is the result of bodies warping
the spacetime continuum.  If space/time do not exist as individual
objects, what is being warped?

Hi Mead! I differ from the prevailing view that time is invisible (as earlier mails stated). As my idea is that time is temperature - and that both terms have no definition outside of each other - it follows (in my view) that space would be equivalent to ice taken to its ultimate extreme (where nothing moves).
An analogy to this would be a stagnant pool of water (space), into which is thrown a number of stones (time/temperature). Eventually, the water will close in and revert to stagnant once more. But it will take a while.
How low in density must Space (its inert permabound material) be to allow light and heat to sweep it aside and still be able to do this billions of years after this universes's creation?
Yet still Space seems to offer some resistence (like the water in the pool), because the speed of light is restricted to a constant. It suggests that Space (and its inert material) is equally constant, if this were true. The energy of time/temperature may well collect material from Space - and it could be that the diamond may hold the clue to this, alongside graphite. A diamond has unique properties, but in time will convert to graphite under the conditions of exposure to the outer atmosphere of this planet. This slow conversion may, in itself, be a further clue to the properties of Space and its resistance (or alienation) from the impulsion of time/temperature.
The question I ask is whether the permabound ice that is Space, and its resultant material, is conductive or non-conductive. If it is the former, it will help time/temperature move faster. If it is non-conductive, it will resist time/temperature movements - and will need to be swept aside.
The paradox is that light can shear through Space and keep a straight line (it would seem), while man will float. A minute particle separated from a stone previously hurled into that stagnant pool would also float, while the new stone would scythe through to the pool's bottom.


Light may be the key to the universe. Just what is light? I have read the
scientific definitions but they don't seem to get to the heart of the
matter. Einstein, himself, was puzzled by the fact that light exhibits
both particle and wave characteristics.

If you are interested there is a marvelous book entitled THE FIRE WITHIN
Park, Emiritus Professor of physics at Williams College.

"God is light and in him is no darkness at all, " The Bible. This may well
be more than just a metaphorical statement. These words may be fact.

Hi Mead! My idea is that light is puzzling to define because people tend to look for a generalistic substance, in the same way that 'mental illness' and 'busker' may be puzzled over. With regard to my ideas on temperature being the same force as time, it offers less mystery to me.
The material of Earth that is bound up and organised into a structure conducive to our eco-system (including us) is only doing so because the speed of time tends to be limited to a range of about 100 degrees C planetwide (say - 50 C to 50C). Local events and conditions may exceed this, but the mean average remains planetwide. I recently went on a tour around a cave in the dales nearby - and the almost constant temperature of those caves was 8 C. Nothing organic grew in them, but the insertion of lamps (for the visitors) has eventually caused algae to grow in places.
When light from the sun reaches our planet it is processed and filtered, but I believe there are forms of light that can pass through not only us - but the planet itself. If we view the short wavelength light filtered out by the ozone layer, the blue (short wavelength) light that is dispersed more easily by our atmosphere to create the illusion of blue skies, the green portion of the spectrum which seems to hold the key to plant life, the longer wavelength of the red (seen at sunset when the view of light's descent through the atmosphere is seen via a longer path), and the knowledge that our retinas are evolved to generally exclude violet and indigo to avoid perilously confusing images - it seems, already, that it is evident that light is not one thing, but a combo of many things able to be extracted from the main body.
Any form of light that is able to pass through solid rock is seemingly incapable of nurturing life on this planet, while light filtered out by the atmosphere would destroy all known life, were it to rampage through unfiltered.
Temperature/time can be adjusted by pressure (ie: melting point is affected). So the sun is possibly time moving at its greatest speed. But all the matter, particles and energy that make up light are the same (minus the filtering) that make up Earth. The physical and chemical properties that make up light are adapted to that level of time speed. Once they enter this planet's atmosphere they will enter our radically slower time speed - and will be slowed down or stopped by matter on this planet.
To a light 'being', it will appear as though its compatriots have been frozen (or destroyed). But this planet will integrate the light into its indigenous environment.
In my mind, I thought I could explain my view on 'what is light?' very quickly, but what is easy to explain to myself is hard to explain to another. It is often the way with inner understandings.
Light is us and our environs as we would be if we were moving at that time speed. In other words (in all probability), we were once light.... and we will be light once again.
In my eyes, the world has four constant time zones: lava, oxygen, water, ice
