Resurrection signifies a unity experience with this timeless and spaceless ground that we Westerners call "God." Thus, the goal is not immortality but the experience of the timelessness of our true essence, which can manifest in entirely different forms. Resurrection is not something that occurs at the end of our lives; resurrection is the breakthrough in the experience that there is no birth and death, only a change of form.
    Willigis Jaeger

  • In eternity, there is neither time nor space, neither before nor after, but everything present, enclosed in a newly budding 'now'

    Roger Penrose

  • Time and space are not innate aspects of the world, but “categories” created by the human mind
    Immanuel Kant
