Here are some more thoughts by Master Ou that include a reference to time, from "PanGu Mystical Qigong:"
Through the study of the ancient Chinese philosophical thoughts, the observation of man's physiologic characteristics and the relations between man and the universe, I have obtained the following profound understanding:
1. The universe consists of four key factors, namely time, space, materialistic element and spirit. To be exact, the universe is made up of four essential factors. They are time, space, materialistic elements and the dynamic energy beyond materialistic elements.
2. The four key factors are all characterized by moralization. Modern science has also confirmed that time and space are immortal and so are the materialistic elements. Accordingly, I have put forward the theory: "The heaven is immortal and so are the materialistic elements".
3. Time, space and materialistic elements are passive. Spirit is active. The combination of the active dynamic energy with the passive materialistic elements can manifest a rich, wonderful and unique materialistic world on the boundless stage of time and space.
4. The combination of spirit with time, space and materialistic elements make it possible for a great experiment for the purpose of creating an immortal world conforming to the immortal nature. The present world, the universe and the celestial bodies are existing in such a great experiment. Therefore, mankind should realize its importance and conform to this "will of the heaven" (the original idea of the universe or the expression and demand of time, space, materials and spirit).
Based upon the above explanation, I put forward the following: "The universe will never be extinct, neither will the materialistic elements. But why is man mortal? It is because man is unable to achieve the harmony among the everlasting universe and the materialistic elements." Harmony is in fact cooperation, and coexistence. Therefore, if one tempers oneself both spiritually and physically, one should be able to live forever. This is truth.
What I mean:
Why do the human race considered the highest class of living being, although it was created from the immortal materialistic universe and brought up in the environment of time and space which have the characteristics of immortal, yet this class of living being easily get sick and die? Intrinsically speaking, it is because man's behaviors are not consistent with the immortal nature of the universe. If man understands these reasons and temper hard both spiritually and physically to make conform to the immortality characteristics of the universe, it is possible for man to enjoy good health, longevity and exist in the universe eternally.
