The Multiverse


On the outskirts of creation, unknown, unseen "structures" are tugging on our universe like cosmic magnets, a controversial new study says.

Everything in the known universe is said to be racing toward the massive clumps of matter at more than 2 million miles (3.2 million kilometers) an hour—a movement the researchers have dubbed dark flow.

The presence of the extra-universal matter suggests that our universe is part of something bigger—a multiverse—and that whatever is out there is very different from the universe we know, according to study leader Alexander Kashlinsky, an astrophysicist at NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center in Maryland.

I imagine a linked ring of universes, each a geometric permutation of the balance between matter and idea. Cool stuff.

Amazing stuff.

Very likely related or part of the same study; it's one of those things that few people can even talk about for long, or their self-important ideals seem too small and they get frustrated as their ego loses some hot air.

Holocau^H^H^H^H^H^H^HBig Bang never happened! The Universe is infinite space that is filling up with all kinds of wondrous subspaces. Our observed universe is only an infinitesimal fraction of it.
