How long is forever?


First of all, what is forever? Forever refers to a limitless time (or an eternity) and is an opposite to temporary (or “for the time being”). It’s when things that endure a lifetime never end; they go on indefinitely. Another example could be an event that permanently modifies you causing changes in you that last the remainder of your life.

Does forever exist?

There are a few examples of the longest things in existence.
The universe. In that it hasn’t existed indefinitely, the observable universe is finite. From Earth, it stretches for about 50 billion light years in every direction. (Even though our universe is 14 billion years old, the observable cosmos is expanding, reaching farther). Yet, it’s existence could be defined with a “forever” term because at some point it will end its existence and become a part of another cosmic long is forever

The energy. Energy is a finite resource. It cannot be produced or eliminated. Energy is conserved since it is always converted. For instance, when a stick of dynamite is detonated, the chemical energy inside is transformed into a kinetic energy. Each conversion involves losses that add up to a complete loss of energy.

Does all matter exist forever? No, because matter can convert to energy, in accordance with Einstein’s famous formula E=mc2

Do diamonds last forever?  Diamonds are not indestructible. A diamond is a solid form of the element carbon with its atoms arranged in a crystal structure called diamond cubic. Diamonds degrade to graphite. Graphite is a lower-energy configuration under typical conditions. Diamond (the material in wedding rings) and graphite (the material in pencils) are both crystalline forms of pure carbon.

Nothing in physical matter lasts forever. It is not even possible to depend on atoms lasting indefinitely because of the finite particles they’re made of.

It does does exists

In the scope of living souls there are things that last forever. And one of them is love. For those who deserve it and believe in it, it can exist eternally. It’s similar to how we believe in God even if we can’t see or hear him. Another lovely term that describes love is forever, yet it retains its significance because not everyone can comprehend or agree with it.

Love is a really beautiful term that describes our ideal relationship and the basis upon which all other relationships are based. The word “forever” symbolizes something that, while not actually conceivable, would be the way we would like certain unique things to be if it were. If you choose to think about it, there are only “moments” or the present where things genuinely exist. From there, we construct our own interpretations of “forever.”
