The construction of the tower was to serve as a monument to human achievement. The attitude of the builders was indicative of those who had rejected God as their Creator.
God looked at their construction, exclaimed "Nothing they plan to do will be impossible for them"
and God confused their Language (Communication) and scattered them all around the Globe.
But at this age, irony is seeing again a united mankind, language is no more a problem, they are assembling once again in the very place where mankind was originally scattered abroad by God because of their ungodly and ill-conceived unity platform?
With modern technology, time and space has considerably shrinked. People can commute fast between continents and communicate instantly through intenet and communication devices. All techynologies are converging into Mobile phones, it is like a virtual presence, anywhere, anytime.
The characteristics of 'Eternity' are - no time (time-lessness), no space (no space constraint), (you can be anywhere instantly, ther is no change in time) and no death.
We inhabit a world defined by “spacetime”—a virtual grid in whose context all objects and events are assigned a “place” which defines their relationship vis-a-vis each other by placing an X amount of “distance” between them. Bridging this distance “takes time”: to get from event A to event B, one must first pass through the seconds or centuries which separate them, one at a time; for object A to exert an influence upon object B, it must first surmount the millimeters or miles which separate them, one at a time. In other words, getting from point A to point B is a process—a sequence of actions occurring one after the other.
In eliminating the constraints of Time&Sapce, there is considerable advancement, genetic theory is working towards eliminating death(?).
God said at Babel, "Nothing they plan to do will be impossible for man" and inetervened.
God is watching and will intervene in the history of man again once and for all.
I like to draw your attention to the recent advancement in quantum physics by U.S. physicist David Wineland and France's Serge Haroche who shared the 2012 Nobel Prize in physics.
A Nobel prize for being in two places at once
They proved that one partcle can be in two places and in two states at the same time. What does this mean? You can be in many places at the same time.
What is the implication? I leave it to your inquisite mind.
