What does the word "eternity" mean to
One always tends to associate the concept of eternity
with figures such as a thousand years, one million or a billion years.
Such a concept of time seems to suggest an everlasting period. Similarly,
what the concept of "infinite distance" evokes in the mind is
great distances, like a hundred thousand or a million light years.
Nevertheless, even if you endeavour to think of the

of timelessness, spacelessness and eternity, and makes you confront an

frequently asked questions: Where is God? What is the resurrection? What
is the true nature of death? Is there an endless life? and When will all
Yet, before proceeding with these issues, some concepts
like "the real nature of matter" and "timelessness,"
will be dealt with in detail for a better comprehension of the above-mentioned
