7 Transformations of Energy

We can see the transformation of energy from one form to another taking place continuously in the movement of a pendulum. As the weight swings down, potential energy of position in a gravitational field is transformed smoothly, microscopic instant by microscopic instant, into kinetic energy. As the weight swings up, kinetic energy is transformed back into potential energy. A similar continuous translation between energies takes place when a rock is thrown upward, rising in a curved path and falling back to earth.  I assume that the elementary particles in these solid bodies experience the same transformation. And I suggest that this elusive energy that keeps its original numerical value as it moves freely among dimensions is the logical candidate for the formless energy of eternity.

Even when a boundless eternity contains energy, it is still nothing if the energy is without dimensions or form. A formless energy cannot have mass, because mass is a form of energy that has its own dimensions.  So mass, and the gravity it gives rise to, remain absent in an atemporal, aspatial eternity containg formless energy. Many religions would probably agree with that, as the initial eternity is frequently described as an unknowable, or indescribable, void. If you will allow me the existence of this eternal energy as a point of departure, I will suggest how spacetime came into existence, creating not one universe but two in intimate contact. The interaction between these dual-universes would be behind the random feature in particle tracks, and other quantum phenomena. It would also suggest how the opposing doctrines of atemporal eternity and temporality might be resolved.
