Why we need a new story

“What is our cosmic story? In the last 100 years, science has provided more information on life than in all of recorded history. But what are we to do with that information? Cosmologist Brian Swimme explains why we need a new cosmic story that explains what we now know about the universe…”

One Response to Why we need a new story

    – What is the Source of the Universe ?
    Where did Existence come from?
    ===========================.
    #
    Now we have three ( 3) sources of the Universe:
    Big bang , vacuum and God.
    Which of them is correct ?

    About big band and God my opinion is:
    the action, when the God compressed all Universe
    into his palm, physicists had named -a singular point
    And action, when the God opened his palm,
    physicists had named – the Big Bang
    =.
    And about vacuum Paul Dirac wrote:
    ‘ The problem of the exact description of vacuum, in my opinion,
    is the basic problem now before physics. Really, if you can’t correctly
    describe the vacuum, how it is possible to expect a correct description
    of something more complex? ‘

    In the book “Evolution of Physics” Einstein and Infeld wrote:
    “ We have the laws, but we are not aware what the body
    of reference system they belong to, and all our physical
    construction appears erected on sand ”.
    They are right. Why?
    Because :
    The Universe ( as a whole ) is Two- Measured,
    there are two Worlds: Vacuum and Gravity.
    What was before Vacuum or Gravity ?
    Does Gravity exist in Vacuum or vice versa?
    No answer.
    == .
    Fact and Speculation.
    1.
    Fact.
    The detected material mass of the matter in the Universe is so small
    (the average density of all substance in the Universe is approximately
    p=10^-30 g/sm^3) that it cannot ‘close’ the Universe into sphere and
    therefore our Universe as whole is ‘open’, endless Vacuum.
    But what to do with the infinite Universe the physicists don’t know.
    The concept of infinite/ eternal means nothing
    to a scientists. They do not understand how they could
    draw any real, concrete conclusions from this characteristic.
    A notions of ‘more, less, equally, similar ’ could not
    be conformed to a word infinity or eternity.
    The Infinity / Eternity is something, that has no borders,
    has no discontinuity; it could not be compared to anything.
    Considering so, scientists came to conclusion that the
    infinity/eternity defies to a physical and mathematical definition
    and cannot be considered in real processes.
    Therefore they have proclaimed the strict requirement
    (on a level of censor of the law):
    « If we want that the theory would be correct,
    the infinity/eternity should be eliminated » .
    Thus they direct all their mathematical abilities,
    all intellectual energy to the elimination of infinity.
    Therefore they invented an abstract ‘dark matter and dark energy’.
    They say: ‘ 90% or more of the matter in the Universe is unseen.’
    And nobody knows what it is.
    2.
    Speculation.
    Unknown ‘dark matter ‘ it is matter which makes up the difference
    between observed mass of a galaxies and calculated mass……
    which….will …’close ‘ ….the Universe into sphere, as …….
    as……the astrophysicists want.
    Question:
    How can the 99% of the Hidden ( dark ) matter in the Universe
    create the 1% of the Visible matter ?
    ========================== . .
    #
    Now it is considered that Newton / Einstein’s laws of gravitation
    are basis of physics, the first laws / source of Universe.
    But the detected material mass of the matter in the Universe
    is so small that gravitation field, as whole, doesn’t work
    in the Universe.
    So, the Newton / Einstein’s laws of gravitation are correct only
    in the small and local part of Universe and we cannot take them
    as the first ones.
    What can the first law of the Universe be?
    All galaxies , all gravitation fields exist in Vacuum (T=0K).
    Gravitational effects took place only in a small area of Infinite Vacuum.
    It is impossible to use GRT to the Universe as a whole.
    Vacuum is “ The first law of the Universe.”
    The Physics first of all is Aether / Vacuum.
    Vacuum is the Source of the Universe .
    Vacuum is the Absolute Reference Frame.
    Without Eternal, Infinite Vacuum Physics makes no sense.

    ======================== .
    P.S.
    Although we are used to thinking of empty space as containing
    nothing at all, and therefore having zero energy, the quantum
    rules say that there is some uncertainty about this. Perhaps each
    tiny bit of the vacuum actually contains rather a lot of energy.
    If the vacuum contained enough energy, it could convert this
    into particles, in line with E-Mc^2.
