If all of matter and all of energy is in constant motion, what is the 'zero
point reference for time? Is it not the same as the 'eigenvalue'? This seems
to be a troublesome paradox.

The 'zero point reference for time' is the Big Bang. There was no 'time'
until after the BB. Since then the scalar time has been monotonically
increasing. Time varies.
An 'eigenvalue' is a fixed scalar value associated with the solution set to
a set of simultaneous equations. Eigenvalues do not vary. [Only registered users see links. ]
Neither is relevant to the fact that all matter is in constant motion
relative to some other matter, which is a consequence of the Principles of
Quantum Mechanics and the Heisenberg Uncertainty Principle. There simply is
no way to remove the last little bit of kinetic energy from a particle -
anything we do to the particle either will not affect its energy or will
give it more energy.
