Both Philosophy and Science will tell us that the Universe is in constant motion, changing potential energy to actual energy and then transforming it back to

That's just how it all is. Stoppages appearances. higher 'levels'. The point is. Along with such stages are various 'levels' of learning accompanied by necessary 'exams' to pass in order that we may proceed with the next. energy composition of all corporeal beings never cease to move. change is a force governing our physical world. Anything we know to be keeping still is in truth a conglomeration are only of constantly moving as a constantly propel us to flow along no matter what we do or what we don't want to do. we are then bound by this law of eternal motion. be stubborn and you still find everything to be transforming upgrading/degenerating to control?

Each day is a new 'school day' for all of us where lessons have to be learned and exams need to be passed. Sorry. You defy what is natural at your own peril.
