Question Mom Always Said..."You Never Know Where It's Going To Come From"

I also saw someone postulate about gravity recently. His notion was the force responsible for entropy or entropy itself expressed it's self as gravity...I don't know...That idea just doesn't feel right(complete?) to me...C_S

Yeha , How does something so easily felt remain so hard to explain. Maybe 'Gravity' propagates in some other dimension ? There are theories that that atoms get their energy from other dimensions. You do have to wonder what keeps them electrons buzzing about. Could the same nuclear aperture that catches that juice also feel 'gravity's' push or tug? Maybe 'gravity' is the source of continuing atomic energization too...

I see evidence of my theory quite often. My notion is that space is filled with a 'gravitational' field that varies in density. This field is most dense in deep space and less dense at the surface of a body. This causes object to move from a area of greater density to an area of lower density.... A rotating sphere is most resistant to the passage of the force at it's equator.(There are more atoms in the way to block the field on the equatorial plane of a rotating sphere) That is what focuses Saturn's rings into a plane around it's equator. The Sun's rotation focuses the solar system into the plane of the ecliptic...

There's no connection to the below bits(not much anyway), just some fun, I hope. C_S

Came across this article today..

https://medium.com/starts-with-a-ban...g-654f3f9e63a9

Which I found a very good well written and understandable.

The opening quote..

Quote:
“Whenever you have infinities in a theory, that’s where the theory fails as a description of nature. And if space was born in the Big Bang, yet is infinite now, we are forced to believe that it’s instantaneously, infinitely big. It seems absurd.” -Janna Levin

Arrow Off We Go Towards An Endless Zero Degree Kelvin Forever

I have to separate the 'space' from the stuff in it. Space has to be infinite, right? What could bring an end to it? Like I said before it is not a comfortable though this continuum. There can be no end, no barrier. What is on the other side? The notion that it folds back upon it's self like some cosmic bubble leaves me wondering ...What's outside the bubble? More space? So the endless always of space is where these Big Bangs disperse them selves towards an endless Zero degree Kelvin forever...I feel lonely

That is a paradox. The universe, as a term, is everything. If there was something outside the bubble it could only be described as universe, and what we call our universe just some kind of cluster.

Having said that, I gotta tell you I don't really believe it.

Some say that outside the bubble is nothing and say it like nothing should be something easy to imagine. The same people though say our universe is expanding into that nothing.

So nothing has room for something to enter it? It's nothing to think about. Unless you do. Then it is something to think about.

Lightbulb Do You See What I See ???

Yeah Man...I too saw this story about our surroundings. The structure and distribution of matter around us has never been mapped like this before. Does that look like nervous tissue to you too? Have you ever wondered if we inhabited a gargantuan living being? I am convinced more than ever the universe and every thing in it is alive and intertwined. This makes me feel a little more important and little less like an insignificant speck of grease. Oh... and nice fireworks there Mr"Pinball Porcupine"

dangit mister "inserted," i just read some kind of news update / study / analogy last week regarding the similarity of supercluster formations to... er, like something else man! (like seriously) patterns sometimes repeat in nature, interestingly so.

anyway, the cosmos has consciousness! maybe. i think. i dunno!

like, cognitive dissonance rocks on.

No doubt about it being at the edge of the void is where it's at!

there's a big story in the news from yesterday about a researcher finding evidence for parallel universes... based on data from the period of rapid cosmic inflation IIRC.

it's pretty much way over my head, but at least it seems to be a new approach in terms of the existence of a multiverse. for example, other theories have been based on completely different approaches... like pure math and whatnot.

Well got to say I'm not a great believer in infinite parallel universes, the entire concept seems a bit illogical and I'm sure Spock would agree.

Meanwhile some shots closer to home...
