A Misunderstanding Resolved

Consider those words and phrases we looked at in Genesis 2, especially the Greek Septuagint version: In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth. But the earth became without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep.” While there are certainly some valid linguistic points associated with this rendering, could the explanation be simply that we have overlooked something critical?

Gravity, Time, & Perspective

Finishing up our look at White Hole Cosmology, we find that in the end, the white hole would have come to a close as the balance of the material within it transcended its event horizon.

As that last, tiny grain of sand bounces across the smooth surface of the glass, rolling ever faster towards the narrow aperture below, the implications weigh heavier than all of the heaps of sand in existence. Falling, falling towards that mountainous dune of spent grains, it hangs in the air for just a moment, and with a sharp breath you take stock of it all, each grain a story, an experience, a missed opportunity; each a seed of time…
