Many Religions, old philosophers, including Aristotle believed that all the matter in the universe was made of four basic elements: Earth, Water, Air and Fire. Even in the Limbu religion called Mundhum, these five matters have been stated to be existed after when the universe was just evolved from the noble silence in the deep space or it has stated motion in Space. This Limbu religion is so true that its philosophies and scientists have even calculated and understood the motion in space when universe was created. After which a consciousness was borne. These elements were acted on by two forces: gravity, the tendency for earth and water to sink, and levity, the tendency for air and fire to rise. I thoroughly understand and appreciate their insight in understanding the matter. However, I would just like to highlight yesterday’s thoughts in today’s perspective and come to following conclusion.
- Aristotle means to say that any matter has states of matter quality in its nature as Solid, Liquid, Gas and Plasma States, as ascribed by today’s physics.
- The gravity and Levity is meant to be the properties it hold of temperature due to heat. In Aristotle’s sense, Earth and Water means gravity, his explanation is meant to relate straight that for example, let’s take a water as a matter, its nature in low temperature keeps molecules close together enough to claim gravity nature, on the other hand, the same water with higher temperature changes to gases and super heat will transform into much higher states of a matter, called Plasma state.
- Aristotle believed that matter was continuous. I think Aristotle is trying to explain that there exists The Law of Conservation of Energy. My argument is that matter is never a continuous, however the energy can be, because it propagates from one form to another form, where matter is never continuous. Therefore, throughout the history, still, there’s a debate in scientific, religious circle whether Universe is essentially static and unchanging universe, the question of whether or not it had a beginning. I strongly believe that it is ever changing than anything else. Only the way we observe the universe from one dimension of a time is letting us to perceive from this disposition. Theory of relativity of time is directly proportional to velocity, therefore, the greater the speed of velocity, it will be easier to observe that universe is not a constant, it is rather continuously changing. The every dT, the instant change as miniature as possible in time difference travelling in a vast space of universe is enough to feel it.
It also makes me to ponder whether the soul of a life is nothing more than energy, which exactly follows the Law of Conservation of Energy.
Yesterday was a symbolic representation, and today is the age of science, which I am just trying to correlate, which by means should not remain confuse about it along the arrow of time. My conclusion, Like Aristotle and Limbu religions that they had understood the very best of science in his time, in his dimension.
