between 0 and infinity lies the totality of physics:........ I read this......

All observers, no matter what speed they're travelling at, will always agree that a hypothetical ruler being carried at light speed will always measure zero distance. That result is built into Einstein's equations. Everything is measured with respect to the speed of light except the speed of light, which is measured with respect to itself, making it a unique reference frame. This is an example of one of the great enigmas of existence: self-reference. So often, paradoxes reduce to situations of self-reference. When a Cretan says, "All Cretans are liars," is his statement true, false, or undecidable? Gödel's famous Incompleteness Theorem is the logical consequence of the enigma of self-reference.

In a self-referential frame of reference, zero and infinity come to the fore. So, all distances between photons are zero, their mass is zero, and time passes infinitely slowly i.e. time has stopped. And consider this paradox: given that speed = distance divided by time, if time never passes then no matter what distance is covered, the time elapsed is always zero, hence we are dividing by zero, hence the speed of a photon always equals infinity, in its own frame of reference. But equally, since all distances experienced by a photon are always zero, then no matter what time elapses, the speed of a photon will always be zero. So, what is the speed of a photon in its own frame of reference? Is it zero or infinity, or somehow neither and both? Is it simultaneously all possible speeds from zero to infinity? Such is the enigma of light speed. The mystery is compounded when we add in the result employed by Einstein that the speed of light in a vacuum is invariant for all observers in any frame of reference other than that of light itself

Returning to the central point, doesn't this bizarre world of photons sound exactly like the dimensionless r = 0 domain, outside space and time? In fact, there's only one difference. Despite being so hard to define in terms of any concrete existence, photons do possess real energy in the physical world.

What is the conclusion? When dimensionless, purely mental energy is converted into dimensional energy, it appears initially as massless, sizeless, unindividuated "particles" such as photons. The link between thought and light (electromagnetic radiation) is a close one, and the differences are exceptionally subtle.

One of the keys to establishing the reality of the r = 0 dimensionless domain to skeptical scientists is to show how it can realistically give rise to dimensional existence. We have now done so. Light is the bridge between the dimensionless and the dimensional. Light is a hybrid of the dimensionless and the dimensional, with one foot in each domain. Light, although part of dimensional reality, also exists in a twilight zone of dimensionlessness where one photon cannot be readily distinguished from another. Light might be said to be "physical thought". Photons might be said to be like brain cells in a cosmic brain, blazing with illumination. Enlightenment is therefore almost a literal expression rather than merely metaphorical.

In a black hole singularity, time doesn't pass and there is no distance between any particles within the singularity. Light can't escape from the singularity. Imagine that all of the countless black holes in the universe sucked in all of the matter around them and then came together in one vast, cosmic black hole. This Super Singularity would contain everything in the universe. It would be the reverse of the original Big Bang Singularity from which everything emerged in the first place. It would be timeless, spaceless, dimensionless. It would be the r = 0

Our universe is a bizarre hybrid of the infinite and finite, the dimensionless and the dimensional, r > 0 and r = 0. If mass is the essence of r > 0, thought is the essence of r = 0, and light is the bridge between the two domains. In the centre of black holes, light cannot escape and mass is no longer recognizable in dimensional terms. Physicists are unable to say what a black hole singularity is made of. Light, mass, dimensionality and dimensionlessness, infinity and finitude all come together in black holes, the dimensional portals to the dimensionless domain.

But there's something else to think about. Light can't escape from a black hole, but nor can it escape from its own domain. If (from its perspective) it exists in a domain of zero dimensions, to where can it escape? It has nowhere to go. When we say that light can't escape from a black hole, we're talking about light relative to our perception of it, but, relative to itself, light is unaffected by a black hole since light is outside space and time. It is everywhere at once.
