# 1B: Simultaneity and Finiteness

 5. Simultaneity Law A very important law of nature is the simultaneity law. It says anything and everything in this world or the universe happens because of simultaneous action and reaction of many people and many objects from many different places and over long period of time. German philosopher Nietzsche (1844-1900) thought it that way also [Mask, p.10], but it seems this law is quite obvious. Nothing can ever be done by one person or one object in an isolated place and in a moment of time. For all activities there is a space time issue. More space time you cover, more you learn about the activity or the event and its truth. Here space means from different locations, and time means all past, present, and even future time periods. Some events at present time are necessary for some other events to happen at some future time. If you analyze your life, you will know this truth. Since everything in nature is continuously changing, these activities are continuously changing over time and will keep changing also. No activity ever stops. The action and reaction, or the cause and effect, keep moving continuously and simultaneously. Thus our society, our activities are all very dynamic. No static analysis or knowledge can give real truth of anything. Thus larger the space time you cover the better will be the view of truth. If you focus only in local space and only at present time you will only get the blind man’s view. Another interpretation of this simultaneity law is that everything in this universe is tightly interconnected. If anything changes at any time, and at any location, then everything else will change also. If you make some changes then everybody will be affected and similarly, if someone makes any move then you will also be affected. This is true for sun, moon, and earth also. Our entire galaxy is very closely connected together. We can represent this connectivity graphically using a block diagram like the one shown in Figure-1.1. Here the rectangular boxes represent objects of nature. They can be material objects or living objects. They can be electrons, humans, and planets etc. Each object is connected to all other objects with spring like interfaces as shown by zigzag and dashed lines. If any object moves then we can see how all objects of the universe will move and react. Thus universe is continuously moving as a total dynamic system. Figure-1.1 thus represents the global plan created by the simultaneous action reaction of all objects, including all humans in nature. The diagram also shows that we do not have any ability to change anything. Instead we are changing, because everything else is changing. Just like our sun or earth cannot change by itself. Earth is tied with the solar system, which in turn is tied with the galaxy. The sun cannot take any path as it desires, because it is situated in one of the spiral wings of the galaxy in which we belong. This diagram represents our global destiny. Our individual destinies are intimately tied with this global plan created by the simultaneity law of action-reaction, cause and effect, and the organized structure of the universe. Here, there is no difference between living and nonliving objects. We are all souls and are interconnected with all the souls of the universe. Thus the real truth lies in this universe of the connected system. You and I cannot define, know, or find the absolute truth, unless we learn to see the details of this universal mechanism. We will see that the guiding principle behind this law of nature or the truth is the soul theory. 6. Assumptions & Approximations These two terms may become very confusing. But in general they are very different. Their difference can lead to vast changes in truth and reality. So it is important that we always carefully notice them and observe which one we are considering in our analysis or search for truth. Suppose that we are considering involvement of ten things in a simultaneous and interactive process, like in Figure-1.1. The analysis can be very difficult to handle all ten things simultaneously. To get a gross idea about what can happen we may consider only the most dominant activity of the ten activities. This is the approximation process. But if we think that there is nothing involved, we are alone, isolated, then that will be an assumption. With this assumption the result will be completely wrong. Assumption is simplifying by neglecting all things, approximation on the other hand is neglecting secondary effects.
