A Simplified Understanding of the Universe that
Presens New Paradigms for Space, Matter,
Time, Gravity, Light, and Consciousness.
 
INTRODUCTION
As time unfolds it brings with it discoveries and theories about the origin, composition and comportment of the universe. Recent indications suggest the expansion rate of the universe is accelerating. Eluding discovery are the graviton and the basic building block of matter.

The prevailing theory for the creation of the universe is Big Bang. Speculations concerning what happened during the first few moments have the same assumption—first there was nothing, then there was something. The speculations all refer to the “then there was something” part. Maybe we can look at the “first there was nothing” side.

What existed before there was something may seem to have been nothing when perceived in space-time. If we step out of space-time, what was nothing might present itself as the essence of knowledge, that essence being contained within the realm of possibilities. The unconscious primal knowledge of everything, of all possibilities may have precipitated the primal event.

Let’s start at the beginning—at the instant of the primal event, Before that, nothing existed in time or space, not even time or space.

The fabric (foundation) of space-time resides in a dimension not perceptive when viewed from the limits of space-time. This may be explained by using an analogy. A structure such as a bridge may have components of its foundation underwater or underground. Inspecting the bridge from above the surface of the water or land will not reveal the specifics of the structure of the foundation. Unless you had knowledge of the design or construction of the bridge, you would not know the basis upon which it is founded. Theories concerning the structure of the bridge would be speculative. You must enter the dimension of underwater and underground to see the foundation. From there you would see the surface of the foundational structure, but to fully know the foundation you must enter yet another dimension—that beneath the surface of the structure.

If we want to understand the foundation of matter, we must look in a structural environment other than space-time. We must look at the development—the evolution—of space-time.

I would like to offer a simple, progressive theory of how and why the universe came into existence. It offers solutions to unanswered questions I have had about gravity, light, time, and space, and introduces an explanation that satisfies my curiosity by adding only one dimension to space-time. It also eliminates the need for the ever-evasive graviton.

I have attempted to make this as concise as practical and as easy to understand as I could. I realize that these new paradigms may not be readily acceptable to many, but I feel that I must offer them to those whose inquisitive minds will enjoy the possibilities proposed within these writings.
