Simplified definition of an absolute in the context used here. ‘That which is simple, observable and truthful’. Everything is. No form of Space – Time – Energy or Matter is independent. Everything that is, is interdependent and interconnected. How else could it be? No need for idle speculation.
Example: Everything that is, occupies its own share of space and time exactly. No more, no less.

Perhaps interested professionals will.

Those memories motivate me to write this copy as long as I am able.
