    Look, you don't know what you're talking about; you're an angry person who is just being a contrarian so I'm done with you and your rabbit hole.

    Believe what you want. In the end you can die into the back hole of the abyss if that makes you feel better and more complete.

    You were talking 'energy' and yapping about 'energy is a constant'. If you weren't talking science, you were talking 'woo', and trying to use scientific terms in an inappropriate manner. That is a technique some of the new age con men use to give their ideas legitimacy.

    He used terminolgy for physical energy , in scientific terms, and applied it to spiritual energy. It's one of two things. Ignorant or dishonest. The concept of spiritual energy (you might see people talking about aura's or chi or whatever too) is metaphysical.

    Maybe so, but there is no such statement in metaphysics that energy is a constant. I don't think that energy is really a metaphysical topic.

    I'm angry? How can you tell? Oh wait, that is just an ad hominem attack.

    Read your post again and see who really sounds angry.

    It can be, but not with the 'energy is a constant' . The mishmash of scientific terms, and metaphysical new age mysticism is quite .. well .. special.
