      Time? Energy? WTH!! This is completely vague and says nothing.

      Time and energy actually mean something in physics. They are not
      just impressive-sounding words.

      Not a symbol. It is a geometrical solid: a mathematical object
      just as understandable as the cube.

      Incorrect. The hypercube is the trace in 3-dim. of a 4-dim. cube.

      It is no more "infinite" or "symbolic" than the square, which happens
      to be the trace in 2-dim of a 3-dim cube.

      "Infinity" actually means something in mathematics. It is possible to
      talk about it with complete precision. It is not just a fancy word
      used to impress people and a peg on which to hang New Age nonesense.

      I'm very impressed by most of what is posted to this list and generally
      just lurk, but this was such a puff of hot air that I had to comment.
