100 Words- RE: The Only Eternity is Zero

“Time is a measurement of change between one thing and another. Where there is no thing, there is no time (change), where there is no change (time), there is nothing. Nothing equals zero.”

I wrote these lines in my personal journal many years ago, under the title “The Only Eternity is Zero”. I was reminded of them when listening to a podcast which referenced the idea, proposed by Steven Hawkings  in papers published in 1968 and 1970, that time had a finite beginning. Hearing that reference created, within me, a sense of personal validation. Unfortunately, my philosophical apperception lacked Mathematics.

About elrondsilvermaul

I never know what to say about myself. I let what I write try to speak as to who I am. I can only add, here, that I am 72, live in a nursing home, am twenty years a cancer survivor, and identify as a gay male. I intend to use this blog as storage for poems? written over the long years (and still being written). This does not preclude other uses.
