    I like Albert
    I have the layman's explanation in hardback

    but time is not a force or substance
    and the kingdom if of spirit

    outside the laws of physical existence the measure has no influence

    Since the Christian description as well as many other versions of Heaven has a lot of allegory dealing with materials and substances that are not eternal, more descriptions are uses, such as, "The moth does not corrupt". Roads of gold as well which suggest many things had been constructed for its literal interpretation, making it far from being eternal as there was a suggested beginning, for which eternity doesn't apply.

    It must be tiring having to preface everything you say like this.

    I suppose the only hope would be that, having fallen once, a person learns not to do it again.

    I have dreams of my loved ones.....now that they are gone

    nowadays I am the patriarch of my small family

    If it goes as I suspect......
    I will be busy in the next life
    for a very, very long time
