In terms of energy and matter, in space and time, I’ve studied “data of comparable magnitude” to the descriptions of these in Scientology.
In an essay entitled On the Electrodynamics of Moving Bodies, Albert Einstein lays out his “special relativity” theory.
Einstein defines time as “that which clocks measure”. The question I had when reading the above was what the heck is the “that” which is being measured by the clock? It isn’t defined in the essay.
A thorough study of the investigations by L. Ron Hubbard into the topic of time, including the study of the Research and Discovery Volumes for the years from 1950 up through to the London lectures just prior to the PDCs, and the PDCs, the fall and winter of 1952, includes his efforts to understand how time impinged on the being, and of course, what is time itself.
Time is basically a consideration that space and particles will persist. Mechanically, this ongoing postulate (the consideration) is achieved and manifests by the change of position of particles in space. The constant shift, according to an agreed upon rate, of every single particle in space, to a different position gives us the continuous now of the persistence of stuff known as “time”. It’s going “space, particles, position”, “space, particles, position” and shift, shift, shift.
One of the ways to understand this is from a paradox given by Zeno of Elea, way back when, that of the Moving Arrow. Does it actually move? If you can spot a position of the arrow, that is a specific location, then it isn’t moving, but it seems to be moving so how can you determine a position? Hence the paradox. 20th Century physics found a comparable paradox, and it is described in the Heisenberg Uncertainty Principle.
Consider a movie. A film is a series of still photographs sped up to a speed of frames per second, to give the illusion of motion. The “time stream” is the illusion of continuous motion that is like a series of stills moving along at a rate.
Now we can get to a definition of time that makes sense for the statement “that which clocks measure”. The fundamental clock would measure the agreed upon rate of change that mechanically tracks the fundamental consideration of persisting. It would be the “frame rate” of this agreed upon matter, energy, shifting in space universe, giving us time – the persistence of all of this stuff – which is measured by clocks.
Classical Mechanics is the subject of the interaction of forces on objects. Quantum Mechanics takes the very smallest objects and forces and works with them. These are the atomic and sub-atomic bits and energies acting among them. It is called “quantum” due to the discovery that rather than a continuous, infinitely small series of motions among these itty bits of stuff and forces, they seem to be in discrete packets and move in steps. These amounts are not infinitesimally small, as Classical Mechanics assumed, but reach a point where they have the characteristic of coming in exact quantities, so-called “quanta”, or the singular “quantum”. So, for instance, the energy level of an electron, as one of the objects at the sub-atomic level, is changed by a photon, one of the energy bits, in steps, or by a “quantum” and it goes from say 1 to 2 in its shifts in energy, with no in-betweenie of 1.5.
Matter, energy, in space, acts by discrete “jumps”. Time itself is nothing more than the persistence of matter and energy in space, all of which are jumping along, one particular arrangement of them to the next. Time is an abstract in that it isn’t a “something”, but a manifestation of the somethings, the energy and matter in space, that persists.
Perhaps, way down there among all these bits (dimension points) there is one whose shift in the universe, is the basic “frame rate”. Maybe it is the photon. LRH tossed out for discussion’s sake and as a hypothetical basic that 1/c, that is, 1 divided by the speed of electromagnetic radiation/light could be thought of as the basic shift. The basic “quantum leap” as it were.
It is the average of agreement of how things shift. The fundamental is after all, an agreed upon consideration. Many viewpoints interacting, not one absolute.
In other words, one would account for the most fundamental shift, the basic quantum, that would cover the fastest moving particles that make up the coagulated dimension points that give us the microscopic and macroscopic universe we are putting out there, and we’d have the agreed upon rate of time, for this particular universe.
The discovery and description of the Static, of space, of energy and time, that is contained in Scientology, opens the door to a whole new era of physics. That new era is one where instead of “observation of effect”, the results of considerations, the source of the consideration is taken into account, not left as “Nature” or “Bang” or whatever you want to call some no-responsibility-for “god” somewhere causing all this observed effect.
Knowing the Axioms, honestly accomplishing the real states of being of the OT Levels, and application of the KRC gained by a full grasp of the truths of Scientology, to the greater survival of the Dynamics, can and will gain us the stars, or anything else we care to create.
