6 ON/OFF Research The BIG BANG! inflating the universe from a singularity. Sience predicts that within ON/OFF is an unstable Vacuum…

7 ON/OFF Research language and the meaning - we have ON within OFF in language active and passive together… I am waiting - ON line at the bank Be OFF with you – go.. I am having an OFF day Having it OFF ! On the off chance ! Active / live – inactive / dead
