Hahahaha I feel your linguistic frustration, the one that gets me is treating a team (like a national sports team) as plural, "The English national team are playing against Brazil" etc. but hey, different strokes for different folks. Well, there is another question cleared up! That was one...

Very subtle and sophisticated the revelators certainly are. I agree, their vocabulary and usage is so correct it is staggering at times. And as this author (a Mighty Messenger) mentions in 42:2.1 It is indeed difficult to find suitable words in the English language whereby to designate and wherewit...

Continuing on in Paper 42, I am continuing with this study for my own benefit, it helps me understand more clearly when I dissect these quotes and hopefully someone else will benefit in some way 2. UNIVERSAL NONSPIRITUAL ENERGY SYSTEMS (Physical Energies) 42:2.1 It is indeed difficult to find suitab...

Loved the reference to "dabblings" hahaha I am thinking of the old adage that "in order to discover new lands one must be willing to lose sight of the shore" and as overwhelming evidence points to the necessity of rethinking nearly everything I applaud any efforts to reject old ...

I think physicists of the day are slowly coming to grips with the "undifferentiated force blanket of all space". Quantum Mechanics attempts to remedy points 1 & 2. Special Relativity has royally botched up and confused point 3. There is a reason that the revelators have described popu...

So...my confusion about the technical aspects of this Paper (and others) was not meant to extend to any others, or to trivialize important details and facts about universe reality. I, personally, am too confused by the Paper being studied here that I don't know if I am swallowing camels or strainin...

Me: Is De Broglie's rejection of the massless photon aligned with TUB? I believe so. The TUB authors don't exactly state that a photon has mass. I suspect that their concept of mass is far more refined than ours 8) But they clearly state that the photon has weight, right? Thanks again Riktare. I to...

The great physicist Louis de Broglie clarified the situation, even though many have not appreciated how important his conceptions and principles have been and still are. Thanks Riktare! That is for sure, in fact, I had never heard of him until now, and according to Wikipedia his study of both Planc...

I think these "gnats" are bigger than 747s!! :wink: Evidently, Paradise and material creation within time and space are finite and not infinite. But there is an infinite (limitless) space for all future creation in the expanding universe of universes. 12:1.14 (129.12) The Outer Space Leve...

I can understand why fanofVan said this is a "technical" paper! 42:1.6 (468.3) Energy proceeds from Paradise, fashioned after the divine order. Energy—pure energy—partakes of the nature of the divine organization; it is fashioned after the similitude of the three Gods embraced in one, as t...

These comments have been a big help and my youthful revelation is now officially retired! haha Not the first time and definitely won't be the last. I love learning and it never ends! Moving on in the chapter 42:1.3 There is innate in matter and present in universal space a form of energy not known o...

I agree that the text is precise. It appears that when they use words from the English language, unless otherwise stated, they're using them with the common definition and usage of the word we are all used to. So here's the dictionary definition I think they're using in this case for the word 'nucl...

Perhaps we are being told that Paradise acts as the ultimatons nucleus, but that Paradise is not to be found at the center of each ultimaton?? A behavioral and functional center of gravity but not linear gravity where material atoms are orbital gravitational systems whereby the internal orbital rel...
