201. Beginnings and Ends
When Plato wrote his dialogue on Parmenides, he found that one cannot exist alone. Thus, Plato found that 'God' and 'other things' coexist. Nicholas of Cusa also found that the greatest thing is absolutely maximum and that this maximum is also absolutely minimum. (See On Learned Ignorance, Bk. I, Ch. 2), Accordingly, other things are finite, God is infinite, and God and other things coexist. Among these other things are the Little Gods. So, God and other things had no beginning and will have no end.
Read the blog, 'The End Of The Universe, The Higgs And All The 'Ifs.' (click) In the fifth paragraph, this blog says.
"Our cosmic history begins at the Big Bang, the event that marks the beginning of time. Right after the bang, space started to expand like a balloon and the matter and radiation within it got progressively cooler. Back to the kitchen, we see that the expansion of the Universe works as a kind of refrigerator, causing the temperature to go down. Did matter in the early stages of cosmic history also pass through a phase transition?"
This paragraph says that the Big Bang is the event that marks the beginning of time. In math, time is written as t = 0. However, math cannot reduce things to t = 0. One can approach things by math, but math cannot achieve beginnings and ends. So, when math equates 't = 0' to the symbol 'beginning', a false statement was made.
The teachings of Jesus and my newest book will correct the statements of physical scientists, deists, atheists, and religions on the subjects of the beginning and end of the universe. On Jesus, see Ch. 24 of Matthew in the New Testament. There, Jesus says that our sun will darken. So our life on our planet will come to an end. But the end of our sun does not mean that all suns and planets will come to an end. Many suns exist and new suns are always emerging. The transitions of things into hot or cold states are natural.
At Matt. 5:19, Jesus tells us that we will live on other planets. Thus, we must learn how to live in the universe by first learning how to live together on this planet. So the deductive economies of every nation must become inductive.
