The Dynamic Nature of the Fabric of Space

: a physical model/theory & view of the universe





Chapter 7
The Cosmic Fog


Our galaxy, The Milky Way, is but a single galaxy among an infinite number of other cosmic clouds in the universe. And like the vapour droplets that make up a fog they block some part of the view for someone. With billions of galaxies (far from infinite) now known to exist it is easy to envision a cosmic fog, made up of galaxies, around us which we cannot see entirely through or beyond. And even though it is easy to imagine that behind everyone is hidden an untold number of others which we will never see - this does not appear to be a visual phenomenon of our view of the universe. If it were then the sky would be lit up by the billions upon billions of stars that surround us so that there would be no night. Forming a wall of light around us equivalent to the surface of an average star. This, luckily for us, does not happen and is commonly referred to as Olber's Paradox.
     It is generally accepted that the limiting factor of our view of the universe, and the darkness of night, are the result of the fact that the number of stars in the universe is finite, and that the lives of the stars are limited. One of the alternative hypotheses, although it is considered in contradiction, is to account for the darkness of the universe via the fact that most of the light of the universe is red-shifted by the motion of the distant galaxies. Thus resulting in a loss of visible light, as well as the radio and infrared portions of the electromagnetic spectrum. But some individuals state that the reddening of photons from these ever increasingly distant stars could not be the limiting factor which prevents the Olber phenomenon from taking place. Although the reddening of the light due to the motions of the distant galaxies in not considered the cause of Olber's paradox - the expansion, which is the initiator of the reddening, of the universe is considered one of the most important factors (a bit confusing since they are one & the same). Due to the fact that beyond, approximately, 10 billion light-years the stars that lie here are "inadequate radiators over this time scale". In contradiction with themselves it is also stated that "the red shift of starlight from distant galaxies plays an important role in quantitatively  explaining the darkness of the night sky.". It is noted that "a successful cosmology must be able to explain Olber's paradox". The FOS Theory series does not have to come up with such an explanation, because it already agrees with one of the accepted explanations. That the red shift of star light can account for Olber's paradox. Our vision is limited by & to the photons we can detect. Therefore any visual phenomenon, or lack of one, is limited to the properties of photons.
     The possibility that has gone unexplored, but had been considered for a time, is that photons decay. Remember that in the FOS series photons are longitudinal waves. And because of this they decay like a sound wave would under ideal conditions. That is the energy contained within the compressed fabric is merely dispersing and so the photon formed will eventually become so spread out, if given the chance, that it will revert back to the rigidity & density of that of space itself. It would simply fade away(?).
     This phenomenon can be observed, and is well documented, as far as extremely massive stars are concerned. Here the expansion or decay rate has merely been accelerated by the more intense FOS gradients of these stars making their rate of decay more pronounced than usual. Taking place as the photons leave the fabric gradient (gravitational well) of these stars. In fact this decay-expansion, and it's inverse, take place within all gradients (gravitational fields) regardless of their size. To some degree or another.
     It was long ago  discovered that we can detect a red-shift in the photons emitted from and near the surface of very dense stars - where the difference in the FOS layers are very apparent from a microcosmic perspective. In other words the "gravitational" gradient rises or drops, depending on whether or not your coming or going, very rapidly close in to such stars. From a microcosmic perspective. Another factor besides the structure of a longitudinal wave itself is ...

The purpose of this series of pages introducing "The Dynamic Nature of the Fabric of Space" is not only to find a publisher to turn this draft [first posted on the internet on December 1, 2008] into a book, but it is also to earn enough money to pay off my student loans, and hopefully raise enough money to initiate the Farm Robot Project. With any luck, and marketing, I will also be able to fund my robotic under water camera platform and observation posts. These would be used to both capture images of marine life, and also provide biologists with another tool to study life in the ocean. Along with this research, hopefully there will be a few patent spin-offs to generate additional income to keep the research and projects going. Presently I'm unable to effectively finance my own projects due to my student debt to which I'm enslaved to my student loan payments.

Along with finding a publisher I'd like to put out the word to mathematicians, physicists, or at least someone better at calculus & differential equations than me, that I have some ideas on the mathematics for the Fabric of Space atomic model. And that ideally I'd like to collaborate on some of the mathematics while completing the book. This would be a great opportunity for someone to start off their career, as the implications for both chemistry and physics are enormous.
