Accounting for the World

It is argued as a condition for eternality, a world that can possess no end or physical edge, that number supervenes over all else whether it is number-bearing sequence, or number refering to amount or mass, direction-bearing time, number to the order of words in sentences, to order entailed to the established definition of words, order of events in history, science history or number contained to theory and method; amount and (parameter possessing) path of events, unalterable, are prerequisite to meaning. The mind and spirit both contain and precede temporally/historically science, cannot be contained to it. Albert Einsteins' theory of relativity, topics from Bertrand Russell philosophy of deleted middle meaning and self belonging, meaning in Lewis Carrolls' Alice in Wonderland will be discussed and maintained as threaded through discourse intended to highlight the potential forces that influence history and the evolution of ideas to define, bridge and make analogy of processes of mind, matter to distinguish 'universe' and 'world'. It is considered that accounting, either referring to numbering or measuring or order, elaborated to be the singular and exclusive activity of all species, living or inert, is prominently fallible among the human species. Einstein is concluded to have mistakenly made the existence of light rather than mass the constructing axiom of elaborations.
