The structure of aramaic, and cousin biblical hebrew, is designed for use in
our four dimensional world of space//time; a world of physicality
and constant change. The language structure is not equipped to participate
in some other dimensional universe, bereft of space & time. The vocabulary
suite results from & speaks to our material world.
hence, when isaiah speaks of ארץ and שמים and ימות and ימים ; and when
daniel talks of מלכו , that language represents a language of four
dimensional space/time; not some other dimensional universe. "land;"
"sky;" "die" and "day" imply boundaries; boundaries of space; boundaries of
change; boundaries of time. These words are incompetent to express a world,
a universe, where nothing changes and nothing is possessed of physicality;
in other words the absence of space/time.
and if aramaic and hebrew verbs incompetent to express completed action,
then everyone in the masoretic text both alive and dead,
