All of the energy in the Universe is the product of oppositions – a manifestation of the tension between the ideal states of Something and Nothing.
Corollary. – The total amount of energy in the universe is zero, because the states of things only change as they pass through time (a narrative) using up the energy that was created during the Big Bang. The common perceptions that the universe came from nothing or an infinity of something do not provide answers about where existence comes from – sense can be made of this only if the tension between these two ideas produces an idea of something and this is the energy from which all matter is made. All manifestations of nature descend from this law: Light, Dark, Repulsion, Attraction, Heat, Cold, Life, Death.
