"...as I read, I became more than simply interested in what I saw before me - I was completely absorbed by something I've never before even considered possible." -- Matthew Mumau
"Giorbran has described it better than anyone else so far. It's excellent, and is put in a way which is closer to uniting the mystical and science, the ancient and the new." -- Emma Wilcox B.Sc. Astrophysics
"I am at present most fascinated with Giorbran's thoughts on absolutely flat and empty space. I think perhaps that is really original. I don't know if he has found a crack in which to lay a chisel to lay open reality, as for instance Einstein did thinking about light and lightspeed; but maybe, maybe..." -- John Barnes Jr. B.Sc. Applied Physics
"It is the world's foundation which is playing a game with itself which in turn is the conditional space of free play for the world. The inventory the foundation utilizes has been coined recently SOAPS [Space Of All Possible States] by Gevin Giorbran so that we could visualize the experimentum mundi (in the sense of Bloch) as an actualization of 'SOAPS bubbles'." -- Dr. Rainer Zimmermann Ph.D. Mathematics, Ph.D. Philosophy Professor, University of Kassel Germany
"The hard science of Maslow's 'self-actualization' and Csikszentmihalyi's 'peak experience,' related to the mystic's experience of universal connectedness, is beginning to see the light of day, not only in recent brain studies, but in theoretical constructs like Giorbran's symmetry order and flat space, the proposed goal of time itself. Giorbran is a must-read for empiricist and adept alike." -- Claudia Brown, M.S.Education, YSU, Lecturer, Penn State University

In Terry Gilliam's movie Time Bandits, a small band of God's helpers steal a map of the Universe which allows them to travel through special portals that bridge different periods of time. Seeking gold and jewels, the bandits invade periods of history which in the movie are portrayed as different regions of a larger timeless Universe displayed on the map. Turning that story line into non-fiction, in this book we are going to sneak a peak at God's map. We are going to map the timeless realm of all possibilities (sorry, portals not included). And once we cross into this timeless realm, the panoramic view of the big picture unlocks a real magical chest of gold and jewels, in the form of ultimate knowledge about why the universe is so orderly and systematic.
Because scientists are presently realizing the universe is accelerating toward an absolute zero in our future, a completely new way of seeing the universe is emerging. Science tends to study the small, the constructing parts of a system, and so the direction of learning is from the bottom-up. Scientists have managed genuine miracles in discovering the tiny building blocks of the larger world. But rarely do scientists ever attempt to view the whole Universe from a top-down perspective. There has been only one major exception to this rule in the recent past; the physicist David Bohm.
In his younger years David Bohm was a student and friend of Albert Einstein. As a physicist Bohm made major contributions to the development of nuclear physics and quantum theory, but in his later years Bohm encountered a book written by Jiddu Krishnamurti, an eastern philosopher, and was surprised to find there were many ideas about wholeness in this book that related to his own ideas about quantum theory. Bohm later was led to write Wholeness and the Implicate Order, a book in which Bohm claims that there are two kinds of order in nature.
Bohm laid a foundation but never came close to realizing the full extent of his own claim, but he was certainly correct. Unbeknownst to the science of today, there are in fact two distinct and separate types of order in nature, rather than simply order and disorder. One order exists in extreme in our past, which we know as the original state of the big bang. The other kind of order, the balance and symmetry of absolute zero, exists in extreme in our future. Our universe is actually evolving, moving away from the powerful influences of one type of order toward the more powerful other type of order in our future. It turns out that there is a very good reason the expansion of the universe is accelerating. The universe has an objective. It has a goal. The universe is moving toward a whole other kind of order.

His reviews of various theoreticians in the history of the subject are excellent. He has a unique ability to take complicated concepts and explain them simply, but comprehensively. It is the best summary of Boltzmann's work leading to the second law of thermodynamics that I have found. The relativistic concepts of Einstein and even Stephen Hawking's "imaginary time" are explained in a surprisingly graspable manner.
However, it is not simply another summary of past and current thought. He develops his own ideas on the nature of order (what he calls "grouping" and "symmetry" orders) that provides the basis for his conclusions on the nature of time as we experience it and timelessness as can be experienced--the subtitle of the book is "Learning to See Timelessness". And it is in these concepts of order and timelessness that he lays his foundation for re-establishing meaning and purpose in the evolution of the universe.
The book is solidly based in current scientific understanding of cosmology. But he integrates these understandings in a new and exciting framework. Whether one agrees with his ideas or not, the book will open many avenues for thought and exploration. The quotations and references that are interspersed throughout the chapters provide additional viewpoints as well as providing an attractive format. There are multiple illustrations, pictures and charts which enhance and clarify the text.
The book is clearly the result of a long and thoughtful exploration by the author. It is one that will enrich any reader.
information so many years to this day after it's publication. The combinational process description of two modes of a
simple forming order is such a precise depiction of something I could only describe from my own sense of things when
glimpsed so momentarily and focusing to grasp, as a "constant conceptual reassembly". A "life of thought", of which
we are, that culminates into more than what it already is through a series of endless paths all connected and viewed
as a dependence upon their perspective preceptions. Dead as Gevin may or may not be, THANKS FOR THIS WORK OF GENIUS,
to stand down from the so called rights of proof that humanity chants endlessly as it's power in an "earthy" being
wrapped tight within accomplishment of drawn from knowledge it so far blends into a seemingly pointless, in cases
destructive snowball of "financial life greed". ...and that's it. Onward.
Time, energy, the forces of nature, and meaning are all a result of the universe moving toward its most probable future, a future of perfect balance.
According to Giorbran, energy is a product of imbalance, and time is simply the transformation of matter into the fullness of space symmetry.
Gravity can be understood as pockets of "time in reverse". Gravity represents our past pulling time backwards.
The electromagnetic force represents the arrow of time moving toward the future. The opposite charges of the electron and proton are simply the tendency of these particles to seek balance. "Forces are simply the shapes of probability waves, and those shapes bond particles together, in groups, in lattices, in symmetries."
The past and the future are quantum potentials, and conscious beings are continually creating the most likely futures and the most likely, consistent pasts. Meaning arises as a result of the decoherence of these potential states.
"Everything Forever" is the most significant book concerning the nature of reality I've read in years. I highly recommend this book for those looking for a simple and elegant hypothesis of the infinite, meaningful universe.
