If any idea contained in the thread that I link to at the bottom can be of any conceivable use in the Complete Cosmology from Scratch project I would be very proud, though it is very unlikely
The project lacks momentum right now and so, though I am a relative dunce, I do have a practical imagination and simple answers for everything. I will contribute my “work” for what it is worth. It is much more likely that I will benefit from any input that is offered to me, than my ideas will be of any benefit to anyone else. However the concept behind your project is compelling and if anything I contribute helps move the project forward in any way I will consider my posting to be worthwhile.
That said, here is the scope and a disclaimer of what I will post on a the related “new theories” thread as suggested.
The Infinite Spongy Universe (ISU) and the Elementary Energy Particle (EEP)
Disclaimer: This work is based on speculative ideas for which no test and little or no math is proposed. There is much math that covers many similar ideas so if putting together math ever seems important, I would draw heavily on those existing resources.
The terms I use often require special definitions and those definitions are not always provided. As a result I will use words and terms that are not exactly appropriate, and I may completely misuse words and terms. I reserve the right to “coin” words and phrases.
Why do I bother with this work when there are already many speculations from so many people who are so much smarter than I am? Because I am not able to understand a lot of the existing theory, I don’t have a life time left to research the existing bodies of knowledge to know what others are thinking, and unless I make it up myself I don’t know how I would ever get answers to the imponderable questions of the universe to which answers may never be available.
This is bottom up approach to cosmology. That means that I don’t adhere to anything except the observations that are available to the general public in the canned media analysis of what is going on in science.
I don’t rely on and I am not for or against any existing theory in particular unless specifically stated.
My work is not science. Though I am highly unqualified for this effort, my best credential is my aptitude for visualization of mechanical processes and the ability to imagine environments interacting and moving in time, and of course a vivid imagination in and of itself.
Building from the bottom up is a slow process and I am taking baby steps. My method is to describe what would have to be in order to cause what we observe. I make things up, but I intend to make up the simplest solutions to questions about what has to be true in order to explain particular observations that we make.
For example, observations indicate that matter is composed of energy. So I make up a concept of a perfect energy background that occupies space. Obviously matter exists and so I make up a scenario of how matter would form from that energy background. Observations seem to indicate an expansion from the origination of a tiny volume of high energy density, either from a singularity, from the burst of a big crunch, or some other alternative that occurred some 13.7 billion years ago, so I make up a scenario of a greater universe in which such an event could occur naturally. The progression of entropy would seem to doom any finite expanding physical universe and so I make up rules of energy and matter that would defeat entropy. Empty space is a concept that requires “nothing” to exist in those empty spaces and so I amend my scenario of a perfect energy background so it is made of space that is never empty but is filled with continuous energy composed of quantum packets that can have variable pressure and expand and contract to fill all empty space so that there is none.
I have a scenario of expansion, abundant matter formation, hydrogen, gravity, the cause of gravity, star formation, heavier nuclei, galaxies, solar systems and black holes within galaxies, life, big crunches, and bursting crunches that expand out into an infinite universe filled infinitely with energy and characterized by a lattice of crunch/burst systems that maintain a consistent overall relationship between energy and matter while individually demonstrating a complete range of variability within an energy to matter to energy cycle. Sometimes my work, like the above sentence, is “simply imponderable”
I am always taking up on specific observations and amending my scenarios to accommodate them. Your input is always welcome to help me do that.
I don’t try to catch up or keep up with bodies of knowledge based on back engineering, particle accelerators, quantum particle theory, general relativity, high energy physics or any other knowledge bases that have been built up by great minds over long periods of peer review. And they don’t try to keep up with my baby steps from the bottom up. But I maintain that there is a curve of scientific advancement. Ideas lead the curve, hard science is on the curve, and falsified theory is behind the curve. Small ideas do count IMHO.
Most importantly I use and value highly the input of others on my threads and on other threads and forums. I am also always open to questions about my ideas and open to assistance to help me understand what we observe in the universe around us, just in case what I have made up isn’t right
And finally, this work is a confusion of fact and entertainment. Please view it as such, please enjoy, and please contribute to the unraveling of the confusion if you can.
