    Question Crystallizing universe

    I remember reading an article some years ago about a weird theory stating that the Universe is the highly complex fractal surface of a huge growing multi-dimensional crystal. The solid "inside" is the unchangable past, the future is some sort of fluid which crystallizes on the "present". Discontinuities in the surface can only propogate at a certain speed, which is why there is the speed of light limit, C.

    Unfortunatly, I cannot remember where I read it, anyone else know anything like it?

    Hi Cruithne 3753

    I do not know if you are referring to my work, but many aspects of the Uniform Expansion Model conforms to your description.

    Brief description of the Uniform Expansion Model
    1. Expansion is the unifying physical property of the Universe.
    2. The expansion is geometrically described.
    3. The expansion is multidimensional.
    4. The expansion includes the space around the atom, (instead of stopping the expansion of spacetime at the boundary of galaxies or gravitationally bound groups of galaxies.)
    5. The expansion includes a motion/expansion along an unobserved dimension, similar to how a flatland universe can be visualized as in motion along an unobserved vertical dimension.
    6. The motion along the unobserved dimension is responsible for the properties of inertia, E= mcc becomes kenematically based, and is responsible for the speed of light being the speed of light.
    7. The speed of light slows, base on absolute measures, with the expansion of spacetime. The speed of light remains constant based on relative measures of distance and time.
    8. The expansion occurs “bit by bit” by forming upon existing structure causing the probabilistic effects observed in quantum physics
    9. The geometric expansion establishes the forces associated with the inverse square laws, these include the forces of gravity, and the electrodynamic forces
    10. The geometry of the expansion is fractal like.
    11. The existing structure forms the past, and the boundary in which change is observed represents the present.
    12. The Uniform Expansion theory is a unified field theory since the same physical model produces gravity, electrodynamics, and quantum physics.
    13. A prediction of the model is that the effect of gravity diminishes with the expansion of spacetime at a geometrically defined rate. (This assertion is observationally verified, i.e. no dark energy needed, nor is there any dark matter needed in the model, the Universe is “flat”).

    I used to post quite frequently in this forum and a lot of the particulars including the geometry and discussions can be reviewed by looking over past postings.

    that's a nice story, is it an episode of Next Gen?

    Hi Captain Swoop
    I do not want to hijack the request by Cruithne 3753, in fact I am interested to see if there is another person with similar ideas.

    But you said,
    “that's a nice story, is it an episode of Next Gen?”


    If you want more details or review the geometry and predictions of the model, the following would be useful.

    The development of the formulas I call the Ratios of time. (Which predicts that the effect of gravity varies with time (As believed by Gamow and Dirac) at

    A “proof” that all relative measures of distance and time keep their relative measures at

    A discussion on the two dimensions of time

    Since the model predicts the effect of gravity diminishes with the expansion of spacetime, the effect on stellar evolution is dramatic, especially very early in the evolution of the universe. A discussion that reviews some of the evidence the sun blew up 5 billion years ago at

    A calculation showing how to get the energy production from a quasar without a super massive black hole at

    A discussion of the evidence that some stars in globular clusters are older than the universe at

    And a discussion as to the problem of a lack of time dilation associated with red shift from the energy production from quasars at:
