An interesting theory has recently been proposed within my research that suggests that the very nature of an expanding universe is what hosts 4 dimensional space. Last month I made several posts regarding the nature of TIME and how we can include TIME as a very real dimension.
The theory is some what difficult to prove, yet NOT impossible and does provide a very rich mechanical explanation to many of nature’s phenomena.
First we must understand what the math tells us about “expansion!” It is a common misconception that as the universe grows it is creating new space IE “new” 4 dimensional space, were as the rest of the universe remains static and unchanged.
However; the true effect of expansion is as it is said “expanding” IE 4 dimensional space is in effect stretching, and at a phenomenal rate. In fact it is possible to reason, with the use of GR & SR that the rate of expansion is the speed of light.
This provides an interesting and fitting solution to the TIME dilation phenomena. When we buzz around (IE provide motion) in an environment of expanding 4 dimensional space, we are in fact resisting expansion and therefore within that domain we are traveling “relatively” slower in 4 dimensions than the rest of the expanding domain.
The theory goes that the universe, IE 4 dimensional space is in a state of expansion. This even includes matter and energy. You me and everything around us is expanding at the + speed of light (since motion, time and velocity are all relative I will use a plus or minus symbol to denote relative velocity IE slowing down at the speed of light or speeding up at the speed of light.)
It is fascinating to imagine that we ourselves our expanding at a phenomenal rate, which brings me to the nature of matter and gravity.
As 4 dimensional space continues to stretch and expand, the domain occupied by matter is under-mind. Matter has a quality to resist expansion of 4 dimensional space, therefore creating its very own sub-domain of compressed 4 dimensional space. Imagine HEIGHT, WIDTH, LENTH and TIME, that is in a state of expansion, being dragged back by matter. The effect is of courses known as GRAVITY…
Quantum mechanics is a headache for many theorists. The strange behavior of quantum particles has invited many attempts of explanation, yet all have fallen short as a true description of what is really happening.
Expansion theory does offer a very controversial idea which is very hard to swallow; however quantum weirdness is hard to swallow anyway, so why not apply a weird solution.
For all those familiar with the 2 slit trick will know that by the simply ACT of observation we can change the out come of the experiment by braking down the wave function. For those you don’t know about the 2 slit trick, check it out on youtube.com, there is a great animation that explains it.
With expansion theory we can suggest that sub-atomic particles inhabits a 4 dimensional domain that is out of sync with ours IE since a sub-atomic particle has less resistance to expansion than us, the observer! Their domain of expansion is running faster than ours.
Imagine the sub-atomic 4D domain, HEIGHT, WIDTH, LENGTH and TIME is expanding faster than the 4D domain that we inhabit.
It is incredible to imagine and very well fitting that our observation of waves are from a perspective operating on a delayed TIME line. Waves show us all possible paths and out comes the sub-atomic particles can mathematically take.
It truly is tremendous to think that when we choose to observe the path of a single quantum particle, we choose to observe the path of 1 out of an untold amount of possible out comes, hence we see the wave function collapse when we observe 1 path opposed to the billions of possible paths when we CHOOSE not to observe.
M-theory suggest that all possibilities are played out which is supported by expansion theory. When we witness a wave, we are in fact witnessing sub-atomic particles passing us through a faster TIME LINE.
I can imagine many eyebrows are being raised as you read this. Due to the complicated nature of the theory I have explained with limited detail. It is good to hear your feed back so I can slowly elaborate…
