I am sorry to pull you up again, I am aware that this is a contentious issue that is likely to split the community of this forum and hpe that it does not overshadow other positive discourse. But ... the rest is not "just talk" avyakt7.
Personally, I do not feel responsible enough to take one day out of someone else's life through my dishonesty.
By the teaching of Destruction, the Seniors within BKWSU have not just taken years out of peoples' lives ... thousands of people, destroying some ... but altering the course of their lives for the rest of it.
The psychic techique of compressing individuals' efforts, goals and expectations on the basis of an "End of the World" scenario is one that has been used time and time again through religion. It works very well to make some people make efforts that otherwise they would not have. I was speaking to another ex-BK whose life was turned inside out and he said clearly that if he had know that the BKWSU had been predicting the End of the World in 1976 ... and it did not happen ... then he would have never gotten involved and surrendered his life as and when he did.
Do you not that that at least individuals have the right to this knowledge before they are too deeply inivolved with the BKWSU?
And here is where I lose your attention forever ... I have to say that I am quite sure that you are misinterpretating Poincaré theory to suit the BKWSU faith. Poincaré recurrence theorem states that ;
"a system having a finite amount of energy and confined to a finite spatial volume will, after a sufficiently long time, return to an arbitrarily small neighborhood of its initial state.
Firstly, we look at the last statement, it read close but not atom to atom exact as the BKs teach. Secondly, there is the problem with Recurrence theorem contradicting the far more sure Second Law of Thermodynamics and the question of whether the material Universe is finite in all ways. An issue that the BKWSU, for all its University might, has not suggest a successful theory for either. "Recurrence time", on a cosmic level, would be considered so long that for all practical purposes it is infinite, i.e. that it would never happen
. Statistically speaking, it is far more likely to never happen
that happen repetitively
over periods of 5,000. Indeed, infintely more likely.
The BKWSU is happy to suggest a neat downwards entropic decline in the lesson of The Cycle but no inclination of how the Cosmo - because it must be the entire Cosmos and not just Planet Earth - suddenly pops back up to it original state. By the Laws of Thermodynamics this would require an influx of energy from somewhere else and we have not squared up how soul power or Shiva Power translates to material energy and why neither would degrade energetically over time.
Perhaps you would be more enthusiastic to discuss this aspect of Destruction.
To be honest, I have been desparate for a BK to come forward and suggest that Destruction must be not just a destruction of the Western World, a lost continent here and there and a little civil war in India BUT
instead a turning inside out of the entire material Universe. A complete re-writing of matter. In short another Big Bang. or a Big Bang at the end of each Cycle - which does run parallel with some scientific theories.
I have deliberately held back from saying this because I wanted to see some BK say it instead. I just cant see Destruction working out any other way.
In your own work, you tred a difficult path by at one point accusing science of being the new religion and priesthood, something that I do not disagree with to a degree, but at another using science yourself as a religious talisman holding up iconic theorem to awe the crowds. IMHO, I think the BKs have a tendance to do pick up elementary pieces of science that suit them, ignoring scientific practise, and use them as religious poetry to impress themselves and non-scientific audiences - rather than do the mathematics to prove them!
But let's start with some simple mathematics ;
- • How much energy is tied up in 6 Billion dead bodies?
- • How much energy would be required to burn, bury or eradicate them?
- • How many individuals would be required to get rid of them and how much energy required to do so?
- • How much pollution would that release into the atmosphere?
- • How long would they and it take to decompose [ Given a couple of Billion are radioactive]?
Those calculations are actually quite doable. The back of a cigarette packet says that it is not possible within 30 years.
So what is your theory? No disappearing into notional Yoga, let us see your science.
