"Local gauge symmetry currents" are forces that maintain the local invariance of universal constants, charges, and other conserved parameters (such as causality, "velocity c", and the "Interval") despite the hostile environment of a variable gravitational (or inertial) metric, relative rather than absolute motion, entropy, partial (fractional) charges, etc. These compensatory forces are due to the activity of the field vectors of the four forces, which not only act (in the long term) to return asymmetric material systems to their original symmetric energy state (light), but also act (in the short term) to protect and maintain the invariant values of charge and other conserved symmetry debts. Conserved charges are conserved symmetry debts awaiting a final repayment via antimatter annihilation, proton decay, the "quantum radiance" of black holes, or a universal "Big Crunch". Gravity pays the entropy-"interest" on the symmetry debt of matter by creating matter's time dimension via the annihilation of space, providing a historical domain within which charge conservation can have durable significance, and in which the repayment of symmetry debts can be indefinitely deferred. Gravity eventually also pays the energy-"principle" on matter's symmetry debt, converting bound energy to free energy in stars, supernovas, quasars, and finally via Hawking's "quantum radiance" of black holes, in the latter case completely vanishing mass and its associated gravitational field.
