Building – destroying IV.

The first part covered the mathematical proof of Creation. It did not say anything, however, about how it could have happened.

It is covered in this article.

The Universe is three-dimensional.

Is it really true?

Not four or more within which there is one or perhaps several three-dimensional universes? And one of these is our Universe?

What happens if this latter case is the truth? Let us suppose that in every universe there is an observer who (or what) can perceive everything that happens in the direction they are looking.

I would like to say that what I write about universes can also be true on a smaller scale (e.g. galaxies, stars etc. or on far smaller scales, such as atoms or their particles.

Let us see a simplified example!

Let there be a two-dimensional “world” in which there are two one-dimensional “universes”.

1. Both “universes” are a straight line
These, as we know, can be parallel or intersecting lines. (Parallel lines are special cases of intersecting lines where the angle between the lines is zero and the two lines do not coincide. If they coincide, we do not have two lines but only one.)

1.1. The lines are parallel
The two lines do not meet, therefore the two “universes” do not come into contact with each other. Nothing can get from one to the other, except if an outside entity takes something out of one universe and puts it into the other (!!). However, an observer in one universe can only perceive the disappearance and an observer in the other universe can only perceive the appearance of the transferred something. (The transferred something could be the starter of life or Creation, mentioned in the first part.) Another possibility is a temporary “channel” between the two lines. In this period the situation is similar to the case of intersecting lines, except that the “channel” is on only one side of both lines. (Perhaps such are black holes or so called “white holes”, whose existence is not proved yet.)

1.2. Intersecting lines
Here something can get from one line to the other through the single point of intersection. This can be perceived by the observer if they look in the right direction at the right time (Fig. 1a), or not (Fig. 1b). In the figures “A” is the observer, the arrow next to them is the direction they are looking in, while the other two arrows denote the direction in which the something travels. (I would like to stress again that this is a mathematical description, and I am not concerned whether or how it can be realized physically. This way it is possible that the observer looks in the right direction but the something is still imperceptible for them.)

2. One is a curve with many extrema
The case when these do not intersect, is no different from the case of parallel straight lines, therefore I do not discuss it here.

Let us see Fig. 2!

The curve and the straight line intersect many times in one segment and in another segment they do not intersect at all. Therefore considering the segment without intersections, they behave like parallel lines. Near the points of intersections, however, they are like intersecting lines. (Let us have two observers, “A” and “B” in Fig. 3. They are on the curve, so they “see” each other as being at a great distance. If they are in position Fig. 3b, they continue to see each other at a great distance on the curve but far nearer on the straight line.

This may lead to the following idea: If an object is found to be at a great distance based on the light it emits, and another object is found to be much nearer, could it be that they are one and the same object but one ray of light comes from one side and is forced on a strongly curved path by objects near its path, while the other ray perhaps travels in a straight line?)

These are the possible combinations of two lines.

In the case of any two curves the case is the same as above. (It is not necessary to exclude any type of curve because for example the individual sections of discontinuous curves are no different from these. Not even a discontinuity, a jump is different because it is nothing else than a vertical straight line. It can be considered a “channel” between the two parts of the curve outside the discontinuity, that is, this curve can be described as two curves – one before and one after the discontinuity – with a “channel” between the end of one curve and the beginning of the other. An infinite jump only differs in the “length” of the “channel”, which is infinite here.)

The Big Bang may have started by some, let’s call it “pre-material” through a “channel”, which, together with some other kind of pre-material in the would-be universe, started the blowup process. (Just like if two materials are put in a flat balloon which produce gas by a chemical reaction. Such are for example sulphuric acid and limestone, which produce carbon dioxide.)

And now I finish with a 3-dimensional example I have witnessed.

A little puppy saw a flock of pigeons. He approached them slowly and carefully. The pigeons ignored him.

When he thought he was near enough, he rushed to catch a pigeon.

But!

The pigeons flew up, flew over the puppy and landed behind him.

The puppy gave it another try but the result was the same.

He did not understand it!

But we did!

The puppy thought in two dimensions and acted accordingly. The pigeons, however, acted in three dimensions, rose above the puppy’s plane, flew a few metres and landed, getting back to the puppy’s plane again.
