Immortality, Anyone?

Paul J. Dejillas, Ph.D. – July 6, 2021


Gilgamesh journeyed to the abodes of the gods to claim his right as immortal. But as a King, his style of leadership and governance was ferociously brutal and fiercely violent. He was denied. He underwent several tests, but still failed. Dejected, he journeyed back home, resigned to the fact that he was mortal and that he would die anytime. But his life also changed.

Time is Infinity and Infinity rules the universe

Even if time seems not enough for you, you can always create it. Time can be so fast. You can't catch up with it. But you can always slow it down and you can even let it go with you wherever you are, anytime you want. But be careful with managing your time. Because, like you, it has an expiry date. If your time is up, you go with it.

Immortality has always been a concern of humanity. Going to the salon, taking nutritious diets, doing workouts are ways of slowing down age and making one's appearance always fresh and youthful. These are not recent customs. They go back thousands of years ago. But today, it has been found that science can approximate immortality through time travel and it is preparing our way. It was discovered that one hour in space is equivalent to seven years on Earth. Technically, this is known as the time-dilation effect, a property of Einstein's special relativity.

If you, for example, travel through space in five years, you will be 20 years when you come back to Earth. Your friends who were 15 years old when you left will be 65 years old.


But is time travel to the past, future, and back to the present really possible?

According to Albert Einstein's general relativity, time travel to the past is theoretically possible if space-time geometries permit traveling faster than the speed of light.

And this is theoretically proven to be possible through the wormholes. Wormholes are shortcuts in space-time, popular with science fiction authors and movie directors. They've never been seen, but according to Einstein's general theory of relativity, they might exist. If Einstein would have been alive today, he would be happy to know that he was right.

Alcubierre drive

The Alcubierre drive, Alcubierre warp drive, or Alcubierre metric is a speculative warp drive idea based on a solution of Einstein's field equations in general relativity as proposed by theoretical physicist Miguel Alcubierre. A spacecraft riding on that warp could achieve apparent faster-than-light travel, explained in the photos below.

Our Time Will Expire

Paul J. Dejillas, Ph.D. – April 20, 2021


How I wish I could keep all my physical senses shut and dwell on the edges of oblivion, the realm of isolation, where I can be unconscious of and unaffected by what's going on outside.

Preferring to voluntarily quarantine myself in my rabbit hole is much safer than be exposed to the malevolent and hostile atmosphere outside. On my own, I can at least freely transform my little tunnel into a safer place for me to live in.

But the world I'd known three years ago is now taking a trip fast down the memory lane, now a fairy tale never to come back to me again. At the rate our crumbling world is advancing, nothing is certain and sane anymore any moment of the day. Nobody is in charge.

How I wish I could realize what Archimedes wished for: "Give me a place to stand and I'll move the world" back to where it was originally during the time of Adam and Eve.

But, for now, because of our indiscretion, the world is heading fast towards its own destruction, with its promised political and religious saviors still nowhere in sight. Let's drink, dance, and be merry for tomorrow we will all die.

I know I'm not going to be around here forever. And I don't know when my Last Supper will be. I don't know when the last meeting with my loved ones will be. I don't know when my last hug and embrace will be. I don't know when the last smell of the flowers in my garden will be. I don't know when my last breath will be.

But I only know it will come anytime like a thief in the night. I'm now heading in fact towards my final demise. There's no need to indulge in self-pity. Anytime, anywhere, my own little world will suddenly burst, like a bubble pricked by a needle, and I'll drop dead. There's no way of stopping it.

Paradoxically, while waiting for my spaceship to land in the pre-departure area, there's still that powerful force, a spark within me that is ever jolting me into action to keep my adrenalin going.

In this animated state, I know I still have my last dance to perform before I exit this world. But I don't know when. This makes life so magical and enchanting to me.

We Are All Pilgrims

Paul J. Dejillas, Ph.D. – November 15, 2021


We're all pilgrims and our existence is one long journey, stationed here in our multi-layered Cosmos, ever moving from one dimension to another, yet never leaving our station.

Our every move and step is being choreographed by an invisible vibration, a steady, humming tune often heard in the:

1. Melodious Ohm sounds of Bahjan songs;

2. Rhythmic repetitions of the rosary beads;

3. Liturgical services held in temples and churches; and

4. Conscious performance of our daily chores and routines.

All these acts, done in love and devotion, synchronize all our bodies, minds, and spirits in one harmonious display of cosmic dance as we journey in pilgrimage to adore and pay respect to our Lord God Almighty.

Let's continue performing our respective protocols and ways of doing things daily from the moment we rise up in the morning to the time we go back to bed at night so we can always be in constant communion and alignment with the divine and all the creatures of the Cosmos, whether humans or not, living or dead, visible or invisible, physical or spiritual.
