The finitude of life

Alan Watts in this video calls for acceptance of the fact that life has a beginning and will have an end.  Eternal life is not appealing, he said.  That is true if the afterlife is no more than a continuation of this life.  I agree with the Christian writer C.S. Lewis that all that is necessary for there to be a Hell is eternal life and human nature as it is.   Life is a blessing, so, at least, it has been for me, and a blessing is no less a blessing if it has to come to an end.

    I tend to think about this occasionally. Right when I’m feeling overwhelmed – kind of amazed at the idea I will eventually and inevitably no longer be – I remember that it will be just like it was before I was born. I won’t mind at all.

    -Big Bang as the finitude of one of the infinite chapters of our Universe-

    Nowadays the universe expands superluminally (faster than the speed of light in the classic – not extremely distorted – void) if we select very afar points to calculate their mutual receding. Dark energy is not “matter” but the result of the entropical diffusion of probabilistic cohesion that (exactly because it is probabilistic) statistically transforms virtual particles into actual ones, and the space expands trying to smoothen any curvature created in the process (at large omnigalactic scales, because there are galactic and black hole spatial curves). That dark energy forces space to expand faster and faster, so in our initial example – in the afar future – we wouldn’t have to select two very afar points to observe superlumic expansion, but instead any single point inside the universe. Then the spatial superlumic expansion wouldn’t be relativistic (among different points or objects) but absolute. These infinite superluminally expanding points wouldn’t be able to express subpoint (smaller than a point) expansion. Subpoints don’t actually exist, but we can describe them as complex holographic numbers (a holographic coordinate is a single number that codes/condenses all tensor component numbers as one) that have an imaginary part. That subpoint energy in the real world is expressed as a force that allows a humongous number of virtual particles to become actual by transferring them enough energy to overcome the quantum noise potentiality threshold and reach the actuality quantum state energy levels. Virtual particles are (potentially) infinite (infinity is a potentiality and a tendency, not something static and fixed). We call this process Big Bang. This is an old mainstream physics idea. All we have to do is to improve our types by combining various mathematical formulations. Note that never superlumic expansion becomes absolute (it is constantly relativistic though if we compare any two points that recede fast enough via their intermediate spatial darkenergetic expansion). If the Universe is infinite why do we use the term “finitude of a universal chapter”? There isn’t any way to communicate with a civilization directly before and after a Big Bang. Steven Hawking, Leonard Susskind and many others revealed that the quantum information gets overperplexed. Also no logical person ever claimed we can physically visit a pro or after Big Bang different universal chapter, neither elaborated any functional mathematic formula to support it, thus “finitude” in the eyes of the beholder becomes a fact.
