English Transcript: 

What about someone who is blow to bits without any time at all to move into the dying process?  God’s time is not our time. And so, he can concentrate, perhaps in a trillionth of a second, this whole process because of the divine power. So, we don’t have to think that because it was so short that they didn’t have a chance to complete it. The process is not dependent on time. What time does is enable the observers to perceive it, but it can happen anywhere. So, this is very consoling.

El tiempo no es necesario

¿Qué pasa con alguien que vuela en pedacitos sin el tiempo necesario para entrar en el proceso de morir? El tiempo de Dios no es nuestro tiempo. Y así, el puede concentrar, tal vez en una billonésima de segundo, todo este proceso gracias al poder divino. Por lo tanto, no tenemos que pensar que porque fue tan corto no tuvieron la oportunidad de completarlo. El proceso no es depende del tiempo. Lo que el tiempo hace es permitir que los observadores puedan percibirlo, pero puede ocurrir en cualquier lugar. Asi, que esto es muy reconfortante.
