 Part III. Chapter 4
Non-dualism corresponds to the spiritual paths which do not distinguish GodÂ’s substance, or the Absolute, form the created and which affirm they are one.
Dualists systems put on top a personal God, non-dualist systems a non-personal absolute.
Dualism has a tendency to harden, to thicken the ego by granting it a substance of its own different from divine substance.

 Space, time, and relativity
Logically, space must have some kind of structure and therefore consist of substance, and unless this substance is assigned impossible, abstract properties (such as absolute continuity and homogeneity), space must consist of infinite interpenetrating grades of energy-substance.
Time and distance are relative in the sense that ‘fast’ and ‘slow’, ‘big’ and ‘small’, ‘long’ and ‘short’, have no absolute meaning, and the instruments or processes used to measure time and distance, or to define units of time and distance, can never be absolutely unchanging.
Nothing is absolutely independent of or separate from other things; everything is interconnected and interdependent, and participates in an intricate, vibrant web of causal interactions.

 Aerosols and pressure. Gases and absolute temperature.
This is a thermodynamic temperature and doesn’t depend on a particular substance or the state of that substance – it is absolute.
Absolute zero (0 K) is equivalent to –273 °C. Each degree on the absolute temperature scale is the same as a degree on the Celsius scale.
The average kinetic energy of the particles in a gas is proportional to absolute temperature.

 Patent 5369750: Method and apparatus for configuring multiple absolute address spaces
The floating address register, however, is not necessarily employed, and another type of register may be alternatively used as long as it can establish a correlation between an absolute address and a physical substance of the main storage corresponding thereto.
The floating address register shows a correlation between an absolute address recognized by an OS on a computer and a physical substance of a main storage and such a correlation is provided for each absolute address space.
If a plurality of absolute address spaces are used by an OS on a bare machine, one of the absolute address spaces to be used is designated by a control register, and another absolute address space which includes an address translation table used for address translation is designated by the control register.

 RMP Lecture Notes
Temperature is defined as the degree of hotness or coldness of a substance measured on some definite scale.
Thus we can say that temperature is a measure of the average kinetic energy of the molecules of a substance.
As thermodynamics developed, it became useful to define temperature scales which began at absolute zero (so you didn't have to mess with negative temperatures).

 Journal of Academic Indology Buddhist Theory of Time and Space
It is therefore defined as a non-corporeal substance devoid of tactility ( sparsa) and characterized by ubiquity ( vibhu), absolute continuity and infinite magnitude.41 That Buddhism rejected this theory of absolute space is shown by the fact that in none of the Buddhist texts is akasa elevated to the level of a mahabhuta.
The distinction between substance and quality is denied because such a distinction leaves the door open for the intrusion of the doctrine of a substantial self ( attavada) with all that it entails.
This is in contrast to the substantialist schools of Indian philosophy, where time is recognized as an eternal, all pervading substance, the existence of which is inferred from facts of consecution and simultaneity between phenomena.

Removal of bad odors by means of air flushing is an absolute impossibility, and yet they should be removed.
The oxidation process (chemical reaction on a molecular level) changes the physical and chemical characteristics of the substances oxidized and transfers a negative charge allowing the substance to be attracted by a positively charged surface and the substance will attach itself to this positive surface.
air purifiers are used by Veterinarians and Pet Stores to aid with the removal of both Fecal and Urine odors.

 Chemical & Physical Changes - for 11 to 14 year-olds: By Laura Gallagher, Loreto College, Coleraine.
A chemical change is usually contrasted with a physical change, in which a substance changes form but keeps its chemical properties remains the same.
The distinction between physical and chemical change is not absolute, and some important types of change, such as the dissolving of salt in water, could be regarded as either being chemical or physical, or both.
A chemical reaction occurs when two or more chemical substances are mixed together and change into new substances.

 Temperature Scales
Such a scale has as its zero point absolute zero, the theoretical temperature at which the molecules of a substance have the lowest energy.
Many physical laws and formulas can be expressed more simply when an absolute temperature scale is used; accordingly, the Kelvin scale has been adopted as the international standard for scientific temperature measurement.
Fahrenheit temperature scale is a scale based on 32 for the freezing point of water and 212 for the boiling point of water, the interval between the two being divided into 180 parts.

 eSky: Kelvin Scale
The temperature of a substance is the result of the relative motion of the molecules that make it up; the more active the molecules, the higher its temperature.
This point is absolute zero, the coldest temperature possible, 273.16°C below the freezing point of water, and the baseline of the Kelvin scale.
If temperature arises from molecular motion, then it follows that there must be a minimum possible temperature: the point at which that motion stops altogether.

 Philosophy 383: Mediaeval Philosophy
That is, names from other categories must have a nominative definition, as they do not pick out anything that "expresses the whole nature of the thing" as only substance and quality are legitimate categories [§§10-11; HW §5].
Absolute names, then, are terms that represent multiple individuals, and they correspond to what we now call natural kind terms.
Nominal definitions include `something having a whiteness' for `white' [§5; HW §3] and also things that are impossible to predicate, like, `vacuum', `non-being', and `infinity' [I.26 §17].

 Secret Doctrine Commentary - Meeting 1
Absolute Unity cannot pass to infinity; for infinity presupposes the limitless extension of something, and the duration of that 'something'; and the One All is like Space -- which is its only mental and physical representation on this Earth, or our plane of existence -- neither an object of, nor a subject to, perception.
"Robes" and all are in the Laya condition, the point from which, or at which, the primordial substance begins to differentiate and thus gives birth to the universe and all in it.

 Continuity and the Void
It is not clear that we can even define an intermediate degree of cohesion between the "parts" of a continuum without introducing an absolute scale, which would be inconsistent with the notion of continuity.
In the former case (no cohesion) we conclude that if two continuous substances mix, they must mix smoothly and continuously, which implies that there are no boundaries at all, but merely a single substance that may vary continuously from place to place.
This conflicts with the notion of a finite set of discretely distinct substances (e.g., Aristotle's earth, water, air, and fire).

 New Order
Unless one of the later albums really makes my kneecaps explode with absolute glee (and pus) when I give them their own final listens, this is probably my choice for New Order's best studio album.
This album is an undeniable step up from Movement since the members of the band seem to have stopped their nightly Ian Curtis seances (complete with smores) in the recording studio and actually mapped out an identifiable sound, but some people go a little bit far and label it as New Order's all-time peak.
The first two albums were dotted with little fragmented appealing qualities that made them somewhat worthwhile in their own (limited) ways, but this is where they finally adopted a sound that can actually be described as lush and appealing instead of chilling, soulless and distant.

 Encyclopedia: Philosophy of space and time
With the GTR, the traditional debate between absolutism and relationalism has been shifted to whether or not spacetime is a substance, since the GTR largely rules out the existence of, e.g., absolute positions.
For example, Aristotle's theory of space and time holds that not only is there such a thing as absolute position, but that there are special places in space, such as a center to the universe, a sphere of fire, etc. Newtonian spacetime has absolute position, but not special positions.
In this response, Clarke argues for the necessity of the existence of absolute space to account for phenomena like rotation and acceleration that cannot be accounted for on a purely relationalist account.
