The cosmos is a floating, entangled web of energies and masses grouped into space time relativities. Many dynamics and processes within these wave/particle systems – from micro particles (quarks, atoms, molecules) to macro particles (planets, solar systems, galaxies, superclusters) – share similarities with each other, and also with life processes such as self assembly, computation, dreaming, and neurophysiology.
INTERCONNECTION – Atoms, molecules, solar systems, and galaxies are over 99.99% empty space – space which is unbounded by any barrier or membrane. The void permeates and envelopes every spacetime unit, and all of its constituent parts at each scale. With all things so permeated by the same, one void, and with no mechanism to enclose any region of it, everything and everyone is literally, physically interconnected by the void.
Within the cores of atoms, protons and neutrons are made of and sustained by quarks. Atoms endure for far longer than quarks, so a matrix is needed – a ubiquitous ethereal substrate – to produce these constant streams and swaths of quarks.
As an organism naturally replaces the individual cells which comprise it throughout its lifetime, but remains the same organism, so too does an atom remain the same atom, even though its constituent quarks are constantly replaced.
BLACK HOLES – A THEORY Dense masses, containing more atoms closer together, require more and faster streams of quarks to sustain them. When many dense and voluminous objects gather within a region of space time, the capacity of the underlying matrix to maintain quark production to sustain those atoms may become strained. In extreme instances of high density the capacity of the matrix may become exceeded, causing the system to crash. Quarks cease to be created, so atoms are no longer instantiated, and a black hole begins.
The Fifth Dimension, as a coordinate, could be Duration. To locate an object in space and time one describes not just where and when it occurs, but also for how long it’s there. Height, width, and depth describe an object’s location and volume, while time and duration describe its lifespan and when that span occurred. With these five coordinates, the rest is a matter of scale.
Outward pressing vibrations and energies of micro and macro particles, such as heat, sound, uv radiation, and centrifugal forces, prevent units from collapsing into their cores. These buoying forces balance not just against gravity’s inward suction, but also against the constricting vacuum pressure upon each unit by the void which envelopes it. Measurements of Gravity ignore the ubiquitous vacuum pressure that envelopes each relativity.
The void which envelops every space time unit molds and constrains those units into place along their paths and orbits. The vacuum space around the Earth, for example, locks Earthly objects to the ground, like strong ocean waves pushing a boat back to an island. A certain escape velocity is required to launch through that locking constraint and enter space, just as a boat must sprint forcefully from a small island to launch into the sea, after which it may sail freely. The void’s molding grip on everything is, on this page, a candidate for Dark Matter.
A theory of cosmic origins nearly compliant with the first law of thermodynamics might start with a tiny blip of energy – a quick ethereal pulse within the void. After a long or short time it pulsed again, and again until another tiny blip of energy occurred nearby, and they pulsed together. Eventually other blips joined in until they formed a turbulent pulsing region. The energy from more and more blips seethed, expanded, and cascaded through the void in all directions. The system became so vast and frenzied that, as it balloned, the exterior shell of gamma, or pre-gamma radiation burst outward into space, while the core was impeded and constrained. The core became trapped, bottlenecked, so the elements within it changed state, congealing from pulses of mere energy or turbulence into a more particulate quark-gluon plasma, still expanding as part of the Big Bang.
