    Hello, and welcome.

    My earliest memory is being conceived, when it occurred to me, "Nothing lasts forever." This is the psychology of the human. However should I create something to last forever, perhaps a study, using my mind, does this negate the nothing that exists forever.

    For example should I study a meal, chronologically, when the meal is finished a plate remains. The statement here is "A plate." Washing, broken earthware (an Earthquake (a techtonic plate)), the next meal...

    I must argue this case forever, but should it exist forever, the nothing that occurs to me is negated.

    Lawyers, walk the Earth...

    OK, false.

    What? A study lasts forever? How so?

    What? The plate disintegrates.

    What?

    Not false. I can remember it. I also have created a theory that exists forever.

    When you were conceived, you had nothing to store a memory in.

    Your theory will last no longer than the lives of the humans that remember it.
    How is that, in any way, forever?

    I cannot explain it, yet I can remember it.

    But there will be new humans to explain it to.

    We can explain it easily enough.

    You're probably conflating some porn you've seen with your own autobiography.

    I remember when I reincarnated into a sperm, and thought to myself "Oh no... Not again!"

    But that's reincarnation for you... come... what may.

    Really?

    I thought I made that up all by myself lol. Must have been in my head subconsciously.

    How true that is. Nothing is the only thing that lasts forever. Nothing always was, nothing always will be.

    Really? Because there's a lot of something here right now. Which means nothing didn't last forever.

    Something cannot come from nothing. If there's nothing, there will be nothing forever.

    But there isn't nothing now; there's something. Either something CAN come from nothing or there never was nothing.

    If there is nothing forever - and something cannot come from nothing, how exactly are you posting on this forum? (Yourself and your PC must have some from somewhere).

    On the other hand the content and value of his posts equate to nothing...
