A Simplified Understanding of the Universe that
Presens New Paradigms for Space, Matter,

LIGHT

Light enables us to visually perceive the universe in various moments of time. Everything we see has already happened. When we see something only three meters away from us, we are seeing it as it was about one one-hundred-millionth of a second in the past. So what we see is an image of what existed at a moment other than the present moment. The image we see is the result of something interacting with light, and that same light interacting with our eyes. The current paradigm is that light travels and is refracted through and reflected from objects. There is another possibility of how we might describe the way we see an image.

Everything is expanding its size proportionally. We would be expanding into the space previously occupied by an object. That object and its interaction with light left an impression in the fabric of space. The farther an object is from us, the smaller its image is. This would correlate with the difference between the actual size of the object compared to us and the relative size of the object compared to us after we had expanded in size for a continuum of time-cells until we reached the location in the fabric of space formerly occupied by the object.

At arm’s length the moon’s image is only about half a centimeter in diameter. The moon itself is about 3,476 km in diameter, but we see it as it existed about 1.3 seconds ago. The actual diameter of the moon is about 700 million times as big as the size it appears to be at arm’s length. Our eyes interact with the portion of the fabric of space occupied by the moon 1.3 seconds after that same space had been exited by the moon’s interaction with light. That excitation would have been caused by the moon’s expansion into the location of the fabric of space that was occupied by the sun about eight minutes earlier.

The above would open the possibility of a new paradigm. Light would be an imprint on the fabric of space to which our eyes are sensitive. Light is present everywhere in the known universe. Stars and galaxies may be observed from any position in space. Those stars and galaxies left an imprint on the fabric of space during the moment they occupied that position.

Science has discovered many properties of light that required unconventional thinking. Two masses may be accelerating away from each other, both approaching the speed of light, yet the relative speed of one with reference to the other is less than the speed of light. Also, the light radiated from an object travelling at an extreme velocity is emitted equally in all directions as if the object were stationary. The momentum of the object is irrelevant.

The unusual properties of light might be explained by more unconventional thinking. Perhaps light is stationary.

There is a possibility that light, in the overall scheme, is actually stationary and everything physical is expanding at the speed of light, relative to the fabric of light. The fabric of light is like the fabric of space, but carried through time. Space and matter expand with each new time-cell, but light is an image burned into space-blocks in one moment. That image retains the same size and location in the fabric of light. When the expanding observer has reached the previous location of the emitting object, it occupies the same space—at a different time—and detects the visual remnants of the object. In other words, we are expanding into the source of every light, emitted, reflected, or refracted, that we see.

Think of light as being a hyper-dimensional field, a unified matrix that retains in its fabric the three-dimensional image of an object at each instant of its existence. The light matrix is a singularity yet it is unitized with all. It is POEM. Matter is POEM with physicality residing within the limits of space-time.
