Mixed Mashed Articles by Pat Darnell | Nov 9, 2014 | Bryan TX
Why do teachers, such as ministers, teach Metaphysics to people who can't even understand Physics? A teacher might say to a child, "Every time a bell rings an Angel gets her wings." Angels, bells, ... eh?
Time is quantifiable only if one cannot see the future nor recapture the past. We as humans see time as a axis in the dimensions of physics, stretching out linear. In nature there are living things that might be able to see past/present/future simultaneously. Not a far-fetched idea, but very basic to being human. Toying with timelines causes confusion.
What would be some of those life forms on earth that might see time differently? It is reported that lobsters never grow old, they live on and on. At least Al Sears, MD, said this:
"...They [lobsters] only die if they get eaten or injured from a predator, or get a rare disease, but never from old age. They don’t have a built-in life expectancy in their cells (Sears, Al. 01/2014. LINK)..."And the Smithsonian claims:
"...So what would be a natural death for lobsters?Can't you just feel the welling up of a good molting, dear reader? In nature, live things change in shape and in form during their lifetimes. Our journey through time involves each of us changing from one form to another in almost supernatural ways. Can you explain to me the hollow ball of cells called a blastula in human reproduction. Eh?
According to Carl Wilson, lead lobster biologist with the Maine Department of Marine Resources, between 10 and 15 percent of lobsters die naturally each year as they shed their exoskeletons because the exertion proves to be too much. Each molting process requires more and more energy than the one before it as lobsters grow in size (Marina Koren. JUNE 3, 2013. LINK)..."
I didn't think so.
Ah, heck discuss among yourself these too: Fetus Morula Embryo Zygote Blastocyst Neonate... and put them in correct order according to time.
The part left out of the Books of Enoch, and other books of wisdom, includes explaining the life force of reproduction that is so dominate in all life forms... and probably explains a lot of the confusion about our cosmos too.
We tend to talk about what is observable. That makes sense. But we cannot, as previously noted, observe our past/present/future all at the same time. Here one blogger examines ...
Cosmology and Time in Metaphysical Naturalism | Civitas Humana: "For the next part of my series about the ‘metaphysics’ in metaphysical naturalism I will be analyzing how modern scientific theories about cosmology fit in to the naturalist worldview. Since I am not a professional scientist, I will be quoting authorities for all critical information. The purpose of this article is more philosophical than scientific, in that it does not seek to advance a particular scientific theory, but rather to demonstrate how modern cosmological theories align with the definition of metaphysical naturalism discussed earlier in this series (ADVERSUSAPOLOGETICA.

"...The study of cosmology has a long history (see here), but since around the end of the 20th century scientists have reached a generally cohesive view of what our universe looks like. The observable universe that we live in is a sphere with a radius of about 46 billion lightyears. Beyond that the unobservable universe is much larger, and is still inflating rapidly. Within this observable part of the universe alone there are at least 100 billion galaxies (and possibly 500 billion galaxies in the whole universe), and, if modern observational estimates among astronomers are correct about there being 17 billion Earth-sized planets in our galaxy, then the rest of the universe no doubt contains many, many more (ibid. ADVERSUSAPOLOGETICA)..."
Naturalism is a closed system, that can be observed in methodology, or not observable because of metaphysical [supernatural] causes. Scientific observation does not deal with "metaphysical" occurrence.
Stages of life are observable, but why they are observable depends on a time frame. Pat/Present/Future defines us and lobsters, and every living thing in the universe.
To experience supernatural stimuli, we humans must change from our current mental state of living in the ever-present linear time frame, to another form that can see past/present/future simultaneously. This could explain the reason for death.
