Could We Tell If Our Universe Is A Simulation

The fact is that our universe IS a simulation, created by our own minds. What we perceive as solid objects are in fact, events in motion. Because we can’t discern motion at an atomic level, we abstract the idea that they are solid. With our minds, we create an illusion that allows us to interact […]

The Creation of Dimensions

Before our universe was created, there was nothing and there was everything, because they were the same thing and there was no way to distinguish between everything and nothing. In a place of singularity, all time and space, and all energy and matter, exist together and simultaneously. In order to create something new and different, […]

The Soul of the Universe

The soul is often defined as a spiritual component, but with few specifics beyond that. The word, “spiritual” implies a lacking of physical aspects, and implies a fuzzy combination of mental, emotional, and “other” non-physical aspects. Trying to define it further usually invokes circular definition chains that lead into religious beliefs and then return to […]

Mapping Clusters of Galaxies

A new technique of mapping clusters of galaxies using the direction in which they are moving, creates a new look at superclusters of galaxies. Galaxies clump together into clusters and clusters of galaxies clump together into supergalaxies. The name given to our supercluster is Laniakea, which is Hawaiian for “immeasurable heaven”. Laniakea: Our home supercluster […]

How Multiple Universes Might Form

Our universe seems to be expanding. Based on this observation, we conclude that it probably originated from a dense single “spot” or singularity. The “Big Bang” theory is often presented as a rapidly expanding “blob of stuff”, that spreads out across a static framework of space and time. It makes sense to consider that the […]

The Universe and Us

We are the Universe – [youtube.com] So when I look up at the night sky, and I know that yes, we are part of this universe, we are in this universe, but perhaps more important than both of those facts, is that the universe is in us. When I reflect on that fact, I look […]

The Fantastic Fracture

At the “beginning” of the universe, when there was no time-space, the universe was more like a single point encompassing everything, a singularity with no time-space at all. In order for the universe to become something other than “everything”, it did not need to expand, in fact, that would be impossible since it was everything. […]

The Universe Sucks

Forget the “Big Bang” theory. The universe didn’t explode outward with unbelievable force and heat. It is more correct to describe the beginning of our universe as an inward collapse, a great sucking implosion. But neither explosion nor implosion correctly describe what happened. The description of an explosion depends upon the idea that time-space is […]

The Beginning of the Universe

The beginning of the universe, for beginners – Tom Whyntie View full lesson: http://ed.ted.com/lessons/the-beginning-of-the-universe-for-beginners-tom-whyntie How did the universe begin — and how is it expanding? CERN physicist Tom Whyntie shows how cosmologists and particle physicists explore these questions by replicating the heat, energy, and activity of the first few seconds of our universe, from right […]

A Taxonomy of Gods

We often wonder how the universe was created and if it has a purpose. Cosmology attempts to create mathematical and astronomical models that explain the physics of creating a universe. A taxonomy is a classification scheme that often attempts to not only classify things we know, but also to be expandable to include things we […]
