Well Eternity looks just a little bit longer. Maybe just a fraction of an inch. If I had a damn ruler I could tell you for sure. :crazy2:

The length of two and/or the greatest length of several, applied to such concept as 'incessantly' ...

Continuing without interruption, has no length.. thus can they neither be longer nor shorter than the other..

I've been fortunate with DMVs. Waiting to get my cat one shot at the vet is longer then eternity though :tongue:

By that measurement, eternity  then must be less then an hour and half. :confused:

What is an eternity in the first place? It's a word that i really know nothing about. But i've used the term before in one of my posts, it to me meaning a life. In between the life and death cycle it is an eternity. Then there is the rebirth. When we are created again.

Forever is longer then eternity.

Peace,
Droz

Also forever could be non-existant. For we don't know if forever even exists. The universe might end someday and nothing will be reborn. It's only a possibility that something will come from nothing.

Peace again,
Droz
