A possible matrix of all existing

There is this spacetime knot. It rotates around itself, like a small sun. It does so, because it expresses its infinity in this circulation as primary characteristic. It fetches some quants. Waves, particles, mixes. The further away the quants are from the spacetime knot, the more probably they are in particle-state. The closer they are, the more probably they are in wave-state. We could say now, if the spacetime knot was our inner nature, our spirit, it begins with the trapping of quantumwaves and interacting with them, to form a soul. The interaction is enforced, quantumparticles are attracted, a body is formed. And again we have the trinity. The question how „big“ a soul will grow, might have to do with the attraction force the spacetime knot has, perhaps due to its position in the „great web“. Perhaps also with the question, how many other knots are nearby to interact with. It hast to do of course aswell, with the condition of the spacetime manifestation in the surrounding, the position in universe, from which our curious little knot wishes to go on discovery tour.

It is only sustainably in a limited manner, to assign human characteristics to spacetime. Possibly however, what we call human characteristics could maybe be a very much slowed-down collection, probably rather a selection, of spacetime characteristics? The theory of evolution assumes intelligence is caused by biological life and above all, a more or less complex nervous system. Now, possibly it is only a consequence of something different, though? It can be read in the Bible: „God created humans after his image “. Mistakenly most humans assume, that this refers to the outer appearance. I don’t know, where this idea came from. Possibly it’s the „image thing “, because you can look at an image, which is a surface displaying surfaces, as we know. Our hypothesis offers a different approach here: What we call God, is the first and most important spacetime knot. It is causal for the existence of the universe and of everything that is in it. And because only one is quite lonely, it created some more, using the appropriate conditions at hand. So, could it be, that what is made after god’s image in me and you, is our inner nature, our spirit, the entity, calling itself „I“?

Due to the experiences, which this „I“ wishes to make and because matter has this „perishability deal “with spacetime, some of those „I“s became humans. To die then would mean, to return into the original condition as spacetime knot until one got curious (or adventurous) again. And suddenly the idea of reincarnation isn’t primarily a question of faith anymore. Also the statement, we all may be not divine, yet carry the infinite within us, is not a romantic desire anymore, but, following this alternative history of creation, a logical fact. If it would not be like that, we would not exist, simple as that.

So how about the mystical „land behind the rainbow“? In our hypothesis this would be simply a range lying in a closer „orbit “around a spacetime knot, than the physical universe. The mythical otherworld would be a range, which is closer to the spacetime knot, which is causal for the earth, perhaps even our solar system or the Milky Way, maybe even our universe. Do you remember the coin, of which I spoke above? I believe, we currently look at it together, and not just at one side. Even I am unable to clearly seperate between spirituality and natural science in this hypothesis, which’s development I watch with great astonishment aswell. (note: I confess, I’m about to think writing. I do this sometimes, being sort of my own medium, watching curiously, where the train of thoughts actually travels)

Panta Rhei (everything flows)

This statement comes from the „great elders“ of science, the Greek philosophers. I use this therm completely intentionally, because in the beginning of research, spiritual and natural sciences were not closely as much seperated from each other as they are today. It seems, like the first great scientists would have naturally assumed that, the universal laws were exactly that: universal. Valid for everything, only different in their effects. Possibly we lost something, when the separation between spirituality and research, between spiritual and natural science was carried out.

One of the questions, that keeps physics violently busy is, why the universe does obviously not adhere entirely to its own laws? If it would, it would have collapsed shortly after Big Bang, as many researchers do believe. The Big Bang is an absolutely fascinating thing. „The fashion“, to discuss away this for all of us most important singularity, might be finally „out“ with the proof of sound and light in the infrared spectrum still echoing. Let us look at the facts for a moment:

– The Big Bang is still audible as cosmic background noise
– We still see the „lightening “ in the infrared spectrum
– The universe expands with increasing speed

What, if the Big Bang had been only the ignition of a gigantic explosion, which is still ongoing? Our universe would be the explosion cloud then. Due to sound, light and movement, all three results of an enormous energy unloading, it does not collapse, because it has not finished exploding yet! Dear Professor Stephen Hawking could be quite right with his calculations that the universe would have to collapse after Big Bang. Probbably it even will….when we reach „after the Big Bang “.

This would mean for us, that everything we see, including ourselves, consist of two basic ingredients: Sound and light, as results of an energy unloading. Light can have a particle character. If enough photon particles came together, they might merge into larger particles under the gigantic sound pressure . Depending upon arrangement and on the sound waves to be met, different combinations would become possible. These combinations are tied to others, and others, and…suddenly, really lunatically many connections from photons to atoms get considerable. The whole periodic system can be built this way. I really mean the whole one and not only the part, we know so far.

Herrmann von Helmholtz, a German universal scholar who was concerned intensively with sound and resonance, could even support this thesis with his work. We know that everything swings. Matter does it, energy too, light, simply everything. Depending upon weight and density our universe swings differently fast. Why does it do that? I consider it possible that the cause of this oscillation is the explosion, that still sounds as high frequency hissing in our cosmos. Oscillation produces energy, which is converted into movement, heat or light. The Big Bang then would be „the engine “of the universe. All of us and everything surrounding, are direct effects of this event. The laws of nature can be regarded as a kind of „operating instructions “. This enormous sound pressure would have to work actually destructively unless, and here I am supported in my thesis by Mr. Von Helmholtz, we would be with this sound in harmonious resonance. We only can do that however, if we are made from sound at least partly aswell. We, also all heavenly bodies do not only seem to consist at least proportionately of sound. On Youtube you can listen to the sounds made by planets. Do yourself a favour and omit yourselves the earth sounds. In this sound file you primarily hear really infernal noise, produced by us humans.

Day seven

If you asks scientists for the different creation stories known by mankind, you are generally smiled or even laughed at. The standard reason why the biblical genesis for instance can’t be real, are those very seven days. It is an impressive and shocking prove for the human arrogance that these seven days of course have to be understood as Earth days, as we know them today. If one endeavors however only the order of creation as it is described in the Gensesis, it suddenly fits amazingly well with what we know from the theory of evolution and physics. It is exciting that all creation myths assume that the universe origins from water, at least something liquid. Water is one of the basic conditions for life. It was shown that water is substantially further common in our universe, than we assumed so far, despite of being in liquid state or not. Even „superliquids “clear as water however very much more dense, were already discovered. The state of aggregation „liquid “is possible for each chemical element.

So, let get serious. How about the creation myths? Could they be closer to the truth, than natural sciences feel comfortable with? Could science and research entirely fail in the passionate attempt to disprove the spiritual principle, call it God, omnipotence, high light or however you wish? I absolutely consider this to be possible. Perhaps it will never be such a thing as a direct God proof (if only because it would be for many humans more terrible and more shaking than all ignorance), I’m convinced, we’ll sooner or later will have to calculate willy-nilly with „the factor God “, if we want to really understand who we are and what surrounds us. We could come to the result, that we are on day seven of Genesis, God rests and watches his creation. What will happen, if HE is finished with resting?

Admitted, the idea that we are still right in the middle of creation, is a bit ambitious at first sight. I want to tell you, what made me consider this. The universe still expands, the Big Bang still sounds and still shines. However there is still another further reference that our creation is still in process: The evolution. Still new species are discovered and all present ones still improve and evolve. If the creation act would have been finished, this developments would make only little sense. Since stars are however born, generations develop, I cannot recognize a dismantling, rather the opposite.
Here, another highly admired scientist comes into play: Rupert Sheldrake. He drew a lot of attention with his theory of the morphogenetic field. Simplified expressed, it is an information field which contains absolutely everything as potential, which a species can possibly be. It causes the genome, which makes the actual manifestations of the potentials possible. It would be conceivable that all species have a kind of „superfield“ in common, to which all development heads. Perhaps genome and field „communicate“ regarding the sensibility and successes in forming out potentials. Could there even be a superordinate superfield for all living beings? Then we would again reach a phenomenon, which we could call God, considering its characteristics: Overarching, One, all-powerful and eternal.

Why we can’t look outside

It seems as if the largest problem with describing the universe is the fact, that we cannot regard it from the outside. Even if we could ever reach the edge, we could not step outside, I think. We are parts of this universe. Effects of the Big Bang like the universe itself. Trying to step out of it, for an outside look would be pretty much like a human heart, deciding to try to leave its body and regard it from the outsinde. It cannot because it is a part of the body, in which it must stay, if both should stay alive. It will all come down to the fact, that we can’t leave our universe, as much as we can’t litterally jump out of our skins. Our brain is not appropriate to seize something outside of this universe. And why should it? Its inside will surely keep us busy for generations, especially when we stop knowing and start to understand instead.

Attention, philosophy!

Unfortunately many humans believe something is understood, if it is known how it works. That is not right at all. Let’s look at ourselves: We know very exactly, how the human body functions. Why it does it in exactly this way,, however, is unknown. For which purpose do we have for example approximately 90% of unused brain mass? Why does every human think and react uniquely and more or less differently from relatives for example, who have a similar genetical code and even a similar enviroment? We do not know. Maybe the reason for this lack of answers is that the small word „why? “ is much too little strained. The reason is further that still the conviction predominates, that the scientific disciplines are strictly to be seperated from eachother. We live in ONE universe, how can there be distinct, non-coherent realizations on it then?

A pleasing trend is that there are built „bridges“ between disciplines, like for example in medicine, biology or also physics. Maybe we allready have all „puzzle-pieces“, needed to build the Theory Of Everything. We just have to connect them. Setting together simply everything, we know. I mean, really everything. Including the spiritual knowledge of mankind. The myths and legends, visions, dreams and intuitions, side by side with meassurement results and mathematical achievements….

Liberty of thoughts – an alternative concept on Universe Part 1   Leave a comment

Glowing sparks in the darkness…maybe the cause for universe? picture: Gabriele Mehl/

Many brilliant heads pondered on some questions for centuries: What is time, how does the universe function and what is it all about with dimensions? It could be read frequentlly in the last time, that considerable physicists like for example Brian Greene would like to see alternative approaches, more fantasy in science. Well, my thoughts are surely not necessarily considerable, I can serve with fantasy, however. Please regard the following as a thought experiment, some crazy idea if you like. Its fascinaction on me is strong enough however, that I don’t want to reproach it to you.

The following idea developed, due to my inattentiveness. I went walking with my dogs. Deeply in thoughts, I suddenly found myself in the brook. If 80 kilograms of dog, distributed on two animals decide, it’s playtime now and the human behind, doesn’t watch out, this can happen. So I stood in the brook, looking against the river direction. And suddenly there it was, this certain idea: This is exactly, what time looks like! It flows through me, while I stand still. The flow of the time produces the effect that it seems to elapse, which is correct from my point of view at least. Doing this to me and all other matter and energy being located in the flow of time, it takes quants with it. Constantly. All the time. After a while, atoms collapse, followed by complete cells, I’m aging. Since we know the phenomenon of the quantum entanglement, I have access to the quants being taken away at any time, I am able to remember! „The tooth of time “…. “leave things (information) behind “….“Looking back “… all this suddenly had an entirely new dimensions.

The inspiring effect of wet feet

Talking of dimensions! In a spell of iconoclasm, I had begun to rip apart what we believed to know for centuries about some basic questions. All or nothing, right? Let’s go on! According to modern physics we live in a four-dimensional world. The three dimensions are well-known, as fourth one spacetime got accepted. What, if that was not correct!? How can three further spatial dimensions be accepted to spacetime? Is there space and „extra space “? I do not think so. So, what if spacetime was a kind of a „superdimension “, containing the three others and possibly still many more? Or if the classical three dimensions were characteristics of spacetime, but not really independent dimensions? In this case, researchers as for instance Lisa Randall could be right with the theory that there were extremely many little dimensions „rolled up“ in spacetime. The dimensions which we normally call such, are „rolled down“, meaning in action.

This consideration can be only correct, if time also had a kind of „inside “. And…it has! We know, that time doesn’t elapse in a linear manner. If it would, we wouldn’t have to adjust even atomic clocks now and then. If it would, one minute on ISS would be just as long, as it is here on earth. We know, this is not the case. Could the „inside“ of time be flexible ? Possibly. And what about our sense for time? We have one. Quite some biologists are searching for the location of the body clock, its effects are unquestionably proven. With this body clock, timing our metabolim for example, we seem to have an „inner timer“. It may be difficult to determine the exact time of the day, if we were sat in a dark room for long enough. We nevertheless sense the elapsing of time.
Let us draw a mental picture. Regarded from the outside, spacetime could look like a tube, or better like a hose, because of the pliancy. If cut open, there is to be found a lattice structure, causing the space characteristics, and a floating wave. If it hits the „lattice knots “, it changes its behavior, producing higher or smaller ridges. This movements of the inner wave inflicts tiny moves on the whole system. This is of minor influence, for my imagined „super-dimension“ of course is infinite.

Because spacetime is flexible, it flexes. It forms a loop and by this creates….A universe. Here I meet the boundaries of my imaginative power. I hold it likewise to be possible that it did this only once, sort of a „misshap “ if you like, and we are inside of this „misshap“. However I also can imagine, that it really liked „looping“ and did it over and over again. Since spacetime is infinitely large in my hypothesis, it could do this really many, many times, producing a whole bunch of universes. Of course it is also able to curl up itself like a snake, then we would live in a Multiverse, as some physicists actually do believe.


Spacetime, toasters and the Big Bang

If spacetime forms a loop, it produces a kind of a „ short-circuit “with itself (spray of sparks, bang = Big Bang; pretty much like a short-circuit in a toaster, but less annoying). Due to this short-circuit the dimensions develop, better, unfold themselves so that our loop and also the inner wave get an interior. „The walls “of spacetime are permeable to spacetime contents. Further spacetime can now interact with itself, which it does, flowing in all directions. It flows through everything that lies within its loop. Through Universe, sun, earth, even through the computer, on which I’m currently typing. Matter particles, spacetime and energy waves like eachother really very much, and therefore „stick“ together, when and where ever possible. For matter, this sticking entails a slow however continuous decay. For energy, it consequences in a change, like friction changes into warmth for example. If we could climb outside of this construction we would see, that neither matter nor energy move by themselves. All that’s moving is spacetime, which carries matter and energy forward and transforms them. „The adhesive “is by the way what we generally call gravitation. Gravitation is a consequence of the spacetime, maybe caused by its waving. It makes the formed loop and its inside „sticky“, so that matter and energy can hang onto it. In this consideration, the strings in string theory would be „pieces of spacetime “ which are formed by accumulation of matter or energy, simply because while flowing by, more and more of them remain sticking. The more is „stuck together“ the more adhesive is present, which increases the adhesive force, more and more, till as for instance on Earth 1 g or even more is reached.

The first important consequence of this hypothesis would be that we do not move at all. Instead spacetime moves us, making it posible for us to float through the „short-circuit field“. If we go somewhere, then we bend or stretch the space around us. Because spacetime forms a unit, the time we need for going from A to B tells us, how much we bent space. Here, dear Albert Einstein greets. Which pleases me in this, freely admitted very unusual hypothesis (of course! It is mine) , is that quantum theories and the general theory of relativity do not necessarily have „to bite eachother“ any longer. The natural laws are not simply there, but represent a consequence of the spacetime loop as well as of the arrangement and density of the stuck together „space-time bits “. Incidental remark: At the moment I consider, whether the strings could also be small „spacetime knots“. If spacetime interacts infinitely with itself, such „knot formations “ are conceiveable.

In plain language, the ultimative question, how our universe actually ticks, would now have to read: „How is the spacetime loop constituted, in which we are? “ Basically, its form and size causes everything that takes place and existsts in our universe. Soles of the foot, stars, solar systems, pulsars and coffee cups are „spacetime concentrations “, which perhaps give us a reference to the form of our loop. If we stayed with my hypothesis we could say, if we really want to understand our universe, we have to understand the nature of spacetime. Possibly we already are on the trace: Could it be that the so far still quite puzzling dark matter and dark energy are the “materials”, of which spacetime consists?

Maybe not all that far off?

We know from particle physics, that atoms contain very much empty space, compared to their size. Why this is the case, is still unknown. Perhaps because this place is needed for the flow of space-time? Does spacetime has to flow through it, because the atom would collapse otherwise? I think, this is quite conceivable. That would mean, the perishability is a fundamental condition for matter, or the price, matter pays for its existence. If it would not be ready for this, it would prevent its own existence by offending the function of spacetime, which builds it up quantum per quantum and reduces it the same way.

Natural sciences and humane disciplines are often considered as the two sides of a coin. Unfortunately the coin, which can be seen as the demand for understanding, is forgotten regularly. For this reason I would like to add a spiritual side to my hypothesis aswell. Possibly spacetime is what is regarded as eternity in many spiritual convictions. Time and eternity are closely linked in Christian teachings only. In most other faiths and beliefs eternity could be seen as „all of time and all of things/energies “. The genesises of mankind, which by the way resemble eachother in almost obvious way, could be seen as they were describtions of the „cord sample “, which was used for our universe. I would like to introduce the idea to researchers in all disciplines, to rather take these legends metaphorically than to take them literally. For example the contentious 7 days of creation. How is one day defined exactly? One day is usually regarded as the time that elapses, while earth turns around itself once. One day is however also a unit closed in itself, which describes the time needed to complete a segment of a project, the well-known and metaphorical day work. I am convinced, that the seventh day, the one on which God rested, was a day of creation, too. With God, creation rested also….or did it stabilize, did it „switch on “?

The very first cause is…Devine

What is God in this hypothesis? Does He have a place? Per definitionem, yes! If spacetime forms its loop, it interacts with itself. For the very first time. It exchanges itself with itself, changing and exchanging over and over again. This information exchange, as well as the reaction to it could be regarded as a very pragmatic definition of intelligence or consciousness. I borrow a term from Stephen Hawking. He calls God a kind of „superconsciousness “. This term pleases me, because it fits well with my hypothesis of „primal intelligence “ which spacetime receives by its entanglement with itself. One could say very simplified, God, natureful, intelligently and infinitely in its potentiality, has made all possible as he was the „first spacetime knot “ in our loop. Then, dear readers, he has indeed created and caused everything, because his presence alone makes ours possible. The less „particles to be bonded “at the spacetime lattices, the „more divine “ are the entities, they represent. So all Gods humans ever knew and still will become acquainted with ,would have a spot in this concept. Contrary to the other spacetime entanglements the Gods seem to be able to „put on and off“ matter and energy, very easily, perhaps on their own choice and decision. If more or less complex spacetime entanglements result in intelligence, then they make the freedom of will and of choice possible, don’t they?

It is very likely, that the internal nature of all existing is at least one spacetime entanglement. If we set above views away, it becomes due to this asumption not only conceivably, but logically that everything which is, carries „a spark of God “ within. This idea is as old as mankind. If we assume further the fact that after the law of harmony „like attracts like“ , this could explain the striving for the higher and „purer“ in all of us. I write „purer“in quotation marks, because I think matter isn’t better than energy or vice versa. Both are conditions formed, so that the spacetime entanglements in our hypothesis can express themselves. Where does the desire for self-expression come from? Perhaps spacetime „knows“ that it is eternal and universal. Perhaps it got curious, and that’s why it entangled? Going like: „How about trying boundaries? I never knew them before“ Now it tries to express itself in all possible varieties and within the selected, or chosen boundaries. That could be „the engine “ driving what we call evolution….
