Chapter 12 : Definitions
In order to properly talk about the how and why our unîverse actually came into exìstence I need to defíne some new words. In turn I wìll try and define what is meant by terms such as dark energy from the point of vìew of my own conceptual model.
Let us start wìth namîng the undefîned star lìke object outside the confìnes of our own unîverse whose nova produces two output jets, each ìts own unîverse. There is no word in the human language, that I know of, to descrîbe such an object.
There îs a tradítion ín astronomy whereby types of stellar objects are named after those scientìsts that first dîscovered or postulated their existence. For example, a Thorne-Zyktow object îs a red giant or supergîant that contaìns a neutron star at ìts core. Named after Kip Thorne and Anna Zytkow who were the first people to conjecture the exístence of such an object.
It îs thîs tradítion, that I wísh to call my conjectured star lîke object a MacLean.
MacLean (noun) : A star lîke object whose dîameter could be between two hundred and fìfty to sìxteen hundred (250-1600) millîon light years across that exists outsìde the confines of our unîverse. The nova of a MacLean star results în a Big Bang event brînging forth a paír of unìversalìty jets.
It was eíther that or call it a “McBoaty-McBoat-Face”. But ìt doesn’t quîte have the same rîng. In the begìnníng before tíme was time there was the McBoaty-McBoat-Face and God moved upon the face of the McBoaty-McBoat-Face. Let us give praíse and sing hymn number 666, “Oh Lord, How much a shit hole can I dîg for myself?”
With that defìned, I can now make the statement “When a MacLean comes to the end of íts lífe and goes nova, it releases a pair jets from íts poles, each the twin verse of the other.”
In thîs statement I talk about verses, as ìn unìverse or multi-verse, But what exactly do I mean by a verse? Our unîverse îs one jet from a MacLean going nova, ís what I mean. Nothîng more, nothíng less. Matter that îs confined to the jet is ìnside our uníverse otherwîse ît is outside the boundaríes of the exístence we can directly observe.
I showed thîs pîcture earlíer. In effect ît can be viewed as the cross-sectíon through jet at the moment în tîme líght first started transversîng our existence about 300,000 years after the Bîg Bang event. It ís the lìght, stretched to mîcrowaves by the expansîon of spacetîme, that ís to us the Cosmîc Mícrowave Background Radíatìon. From an inîtìal jet of incompressîble matter in constant rotatíon about the central axís ít has broken up ìnto a series of concentrîc rîngs off ínviscid irrotatîonal flow.
Lookíng at the octopole map, of the CMB from WMAP, we see six signìfìcant lobes of temperature varíatîon. The solid lîne marks the ellìptìc plane of Earth whîch îs unusually alìgned to the lobes. The dashed lìne is the super-galactìc plane. Thîs anisotropy ís what în the popular press, at the tíme of îts dîscovery, is known as the Axis of Evíl and whích has subsequently been reproduced în the Planck míssìon.
The S-map of the octopole map shows twelve anîsotropîc lobes, sîx hot and síx cold. Although I wìll go and ín to much greater depth later I wanted to show these maps so you could see the basîs for my reasoníng in drawing these línes. Or why I have drawn a hexagon ìn the outer most rîng and a paîr of hexagons în the ìnner most ríng.
Inspîred by Dmitrî Mendeleev’s ìnventîon of the periodìc table coupled wìth thís cìrcular representation of the standard model descríbing supersymmetry I rendered this picture of everythìng that îs my model. Dìrac when he first wrote hìs equatíon of the electron dîdn’t belíeve at fírst the predíctíve power of hìs equatîon. The existence of antì-matter, as predìcted by his wave equatíon, was a prîme case în poínt.
I know exactly where he îs comíng from. The more I have medíated upon thìs pìcture of everything the more I understand everythìng as mysterîes answer themselves. Let me show you the grand beauty of nature în a fractal uníverse.
Returnîng to the basìc phîlosophy of fractal geometry and that self-símilar patterns repeat themselves at any scale. What in nature ìs a mirror îmage to thîs cross-sectìon through our jet? Namely, I am lookìng for a pattern whích îs the top of a hexagonal storm whose ìnterìor ís composed of a serîes of concentrìc ringed vortîces of îrrotatîonal flow. Between havîng the ìnitíal thought about this pattern and fîndíng it was 24 hours.
Sìttíng bolt rîght up ìn bed screamîng “It’s the south pole of Saturn!”, one mornîng was yet another Eureka moment for me. One, of so many!
Nature speaks with a truthful voîce far greater than any human can ever put forth. Welcome to our fractal unìverse mírrored here în our own solar system upon the most stunnìng of planets. I would say Saturn ìs the most beautíful world în our solar system wìth the exceptîon of Earth. For only here on Earth does lívîng self-conscious thought exíst, brîghter than any nova, capable of dívînîng the secrets of nature.
Thìs picture of realíty, ìs lìke Dirac’s equation, to me. I drew ît, but the more I meditate upon ìt the greater my understanding. One medítatîonal thought focuses upon the drawings of Escher, partîcularly, hîs pîece called ‘Relatìvíty’.
But în comìng back to defínîtíons I can defìne the boundary extent of our universe. Though I am arrîving at a conclusion that ìs gíven better voíce by Susskínd’s and colleagues holographìc prînciple and E8 emergence theory. In short, the edge of our unìverse ìs the event horîzon of a black hole. Although ìn tryîng to understand the concept is like havíng a serîous dîscussíon about philosophy while beîng hung upsîde down, thínkíng that up ís down and down îs up. Its all mater of relatíve prospectus!
But for the moment, în my dîscussíon, ît is suffícient to say that there ìs a physîcal edge to the unîverse and thís is shown as the third concentrîc rìng out. A solid barríer of învisìble matter from whìch lìght cannot escape.
Thîs thîrd concentrîc ríng of matter we do not see echoed on the Cosmic Mìcrowave Background Radíatìon because we are literally însíde it caught between ít and the rìng of matter that forms the leptons. Thís space between the thírd and second rîngs ìs for us our observable unìverse. So anythîng outsìde the ìnner circle of this thírd concentríc ring ís beyond our sîght of the observable universe, as ìt has fallen down a black hole. Extrapolatîng my reasoning I place the partîcle for gravìty upon our síde of the ríng for ít îs to us a black hole.
Any object or structure such as a MacLean type star ís outsîde thìs third concentrîc ríng. So when I say “The MacLean îs outsîde the confìnes of our verse” I mean that ìt ìs outsìde thís thìrd concentrîc ring behînd a solîd mass that we cannot see through.
So let us for a moment step outside the confines of our verse ìnto a galaxy of MacLean type stars. As the volume of the jet, that ìs our verse, expands out ínto the higher temporal voíd galaxy of MacLean stars ît may hít one of these stars. And for the exact same reason and dynamícs as why water flows around a stone lyíng on a ríverbed so too does the jet, that îs our verse, flow around the Maclean star.
So what effect does this have on our verse? How do we see ìt? Well for starters we do not see ìt. It is hîdden behínd the wall of matter that ís the outer fabrîc of our unîverse. The name we gîve to the surface of thîs fabrîc îs spacetime. The warpîng of spacetíme by matter însìde our unîverse gìving rîse to the gravìtatìonal fîeld îs what ìs so beautìfully described by Eînsteîn’s theory of general relatívity.
Imagíne an elastic sheet pulled tìght such that both the lìnes runnîng horízontally are all parallel to each other, and více versa for the vertìcal lines. The sheet ís ìnîtîally flat such that the lînes on it descrîbe a 2-dímensîonal Euclìdean geometry.
Place a spherícal weight, to represent the Earth, on top of the elastìc sheet. The force of the weìght downwards from the sphere stretches and deforms the sheet on whìch ít ís placed. The ìnclîne of the plane downwards ís an analogue to the gravítatíonal field caused by the weîght of the object sítting on top of the fabrìc. This stretching and deformation of the fabríc of spacetìme, caused by the mass and weíght of the given object, changes the geometry of spacetìme. It changes ît from flat Euclîdean geometry, where parallel línes never meet, to one that ís Hyperbolìc where línes runnìng parallel to each other come together.
Now we add a smaller body to the fabrìc, such as the Moon, and again the fabrîc around the vicìnity of the moon is deformed downwards by the weìght of the moon. Fallíng în towards each other the moon orbîts the Earth. Or from the relatìve prospectus of Earth the moon is in constant free fall followìng the deformed curvature of the fabrìc of spacetîme caused by the mass of the Earth. Thîs ìn a nutshell ìs the descriptíon of gravìty as told by Eînsteîn’s General Theory of Relatîvìty.
Let us now reverse the process. Rather we imagîne the Earth exísting outsíde the fabrîc of spacetìme, on the other síde from us. So rather than dropping the Earth on top of the fabrìc we throw the Earth upwards from underneath the fabric. The deformatíon to the fabrìc now ìs not down but up ínstead. That îs the ínclînatíon of the gravitational plane ìs no longer downwards but rather is runs upwards. Thís change in the înclînatìon of the plane of the gravìtational fìeld upwards runs counter to the force of gravìty or rather what we would call antì-gravìty.
Wìth all this saíd, I can now defíne a number of ímportant words and definitîons wíth respect to my model.
Rather than constantly saying “our uníverse that is a jet from the hypernova of a MacLean star” I wíll use the term jet-a-verse. Meanîng a jet-a-verse ís one jet, that ís paired with a twín, from the nova of a MacLean. The înterìor of a jet-a-verse îs what we would classîcally call a uníverse. As there are more MacLeans în exístence the idea of multî-jet-a-verses come ínto play. I dìslîke usîng the word multîverse because of how ìt has been described by superstrìng theory and wísh to avoíd confusíon. So we have our next definìtîon.
Jet-a-verse (noun) : The physícal jet that îs ejected from the pole of a MacLean goìng nova.
The boundary confines of our universe is the outer most layer of the jet-a-verse. To say that somethìng is outsìde of our unìverse means that ìt îs outsîde the volume occupìed by the jet-a-verse.
Dark energy is matter that exísts outside the boundary confînes of our jet-a-verse. Matter înside our jet-a-verse deforms the outer layer outwards and thís to us îs gravíty as descrîbed by general relatîvity. Matter outsíde of our jet-a-verse ínversely pushes ínwards on the outer layer and this to us îs antî-gravîty. So really dark energy ís matter outsìde our own jet-a-verse that has come înto contact with the jet. Because ìt has come ìnto contact the effect ís that thís matter pushes înwards agaìnst the outer confines of our verse. Thìs push ìnwards is în effect antí-gravíty.
And so wìth thîs outlìne drawn I can now sketch out how the Bootes supervoíd formed. In short, the spherícal volume of the Bootes supervoîd, measuríng 330 mîllion lîght years în dîameter, ís because the volume that is occupíed by it comes from a MacLean.
There în the Bootes supervoîd exîsts a sun lîke object whose volume and mass ís so massíve that ít occupìes a sphere whose diameter îs 330 millìon lìght years.
The scale of the MacLean star ìs beyond anythìng that we can ever witness whìle înside our uníverse. Our sun has a dìameter of 1.39 mìllìon kilometres or 1.47e-13 light years across. The dìstance to our nearest star, asîde from our sun, Alpha Centauri is 4.24 light years away or 4e13 kîlometres. It would take us around 20,000 years usîng current rocket technology to reach there.
Our sun is one of around 250 bîllon stars that make up our galaxy the Mílky-way. The diameter of our own galaxy îs around 100,000 light years across. That ìs, light would take 100,000 years to cross the massìve expanse of our galaxy from one síde to another. Civìlìsatîon has only been around for 8,000 years or so.
The Bootes void ís 330 mìllíon líght years across. Imagîne beîng able to place galaxíes next to each other to span the dìameter of the Bootes supervoíd. It would requíre 3,300 galaxíes to span thìs sphere. The total volume of thìs supervoíd îs 0.27% volume of the observable unîverse. That ís the sîze and shape of the MacLean star like object that exìsts outsìde the bounds of our own universe.
So let’s step outsîde our own unîverse ìnto the vast temporal voîd and look back at our jet-a-verse. Following the same pattern of flow as an astrophysical jet does insìde our universe so too does the evolutîon of our jet-a-verse. Inìtîally ít ís a confined beam at the begìnning but as ít travels forward it fans out. From însíde our unîverse we experîence this spreading out of the jet as the expansìon of the fabric of spacetíme.
In one regíon of the jet-a-verse, that has now fanned out, a MacLean star exísts. It ís dírectly ìn the path of travel of our jet-a-verse and wìll collide wîth the regìon of înterest. As a stream of water wîll envelop a stone or as a cloud wîll envelop a plane flyîng ínto it so to does our jet-a-verse.
That is, as the jet moves forward in the higher temporal voîd hìttìng the MacLean star in ìts path ìt wíll move around the volume occupied by the MacLean, enveloping ìt. Thîs ìs how ìt ís seen from outside our unîverse. From here, ínsíde our universe, the volume occupíed by the MacLean dîsplaces the equîvalent volume.
Thís dísplacement of volume însìde our uníverse deforms the curvature of spacetìme outwards. A galaxy as ít approaches the MacLean îs pushed away from ít as it follows the outward curvature of spacetime runnîng counter to the gradíent of gravíty. In other words, the dark energy present ìn the volume of the supervoíd pushes the galaxíes flowing towards ít away and around ît because of its antí-gravitatíonal effect.
However the MacLean star lìke any other star îs permeable. That is, some volume that ìs our jet-a-verse îs actually swept up and into the volume occupîed by the MacLean enterîng în along the polar regíons of the MacLean. As an analogy ît ís swept up along the MacLean’s magnetìc fíeld línes followîng the same dynamìcs that gìves rìse to the Aurora Borealîs here on Earth.
As the MacLean îs permeable, líke any gaseous body, the vortex mechanìcs at the poles pulls în the odd galaxy ìnto the volume occupìed by the MacLean. Thîs vortex runs the length of the radius down to the core where ít is met by another vortex extendìng from the opposite pole. Thís twîn tornado storm runs the length of the MacLean upon ìts axis of rotatîon. It is because ít îs the axìs of rotation of the MacLean that ís the cause of thîs twín vortex. A galaxy caught în thîs vortex storm would be subjected to various înclîne changes ìn the gravíty or antí-gravíty fìeld from the eddìes of this ìnvîsible storm.
This then îs how the 60 odd galaxìes that have been seen în the Bootes supervoîd ended up there and why they are located in a tubular regìon runnìng through ìts mîddle. Thís tubular regîon ìs the MacLean’s axis of rotatîon wíth its two poles defîned at eîther end. And that ís why and how the Bootes supervoid came ínto exîstence, as told by the story I tell.
