This article is dedicated to my eternal discovery that the universe is flat and that the space-time continuum is Euclidean for all reference frames!
I may have talked about this discovery in some of my articles, but this article is specially dedicated to the discussion of this great and eternal discovery.
When you look at the universe, and at the heavenly bodies, you will see that they look spherical and that they make a curved path in space as they move, and if you go by this observation then you would expect the universe to be anything but flat.
You would probably be expecting a spherical or curved universe and not a flat one. It would interest you to know that according to cosmological reports the universe is almost flat, but it is however curved due to the propositions of general relativity which describes a curved universe.
Now, in this article, we will look at why the universe is flat making vital references to the geometry of space-time which is the first reference and to the composition of the two non-mechanical waves in the universe which is the second reference.
So, let’s begin.
The Two Different Forms of the Space-time Continuum
At this point, it is important to let you know that physicists have a more technical way of ascertaining the geometry of the universe beyond the physical observations you make when you observe the heavens and the motion of heavenly bodies mentioned in the third paragraph above.
This physical observation which you may make is based on the motion of bodies in space and the geometry they make when they extend in space, but since relativity, physicists judge the geometry of the universe based on the unified entity of space-time.
The geometry of space-time is the more technical way physicists judge the geometry of the universe and it is what is the concern of this article. In relativity, events, as they occur in space-time, is what physicists study and not how they occur separately in space and time.
So, the geometry of the universe is not about space only but about space-time, and in this regard, general relativity informs us that the universe is curved due to the curvature of space-time by the presence of matter and energy.
This curvature is what is referred to as gravity in general relativity and it is responsible for the accelerated motion of heavenly bodies. So, this curvature applies to accelerated frames.
But before general relativity, we had special relativity, which informs us that space-time is flat and not curved for all uniform frames. I want you to see that the geometry of the universe is based on the motion in question and it is described by the unified entity called space-time.
So, the two branches of modern relativity, special relativity and general relativity, inform us that the universe is flat and also curved. We only say the universe is curved according to general relativity when we consider the motion of heavenly bodies and that they are always in accelerated motion.
But when we look holistically at modern relativity, we find a disharmonious geometrical description of the universe. This geometrical disharmony is serious and should be attended to. How can space-time be flat for uniform frames and then curved for accelerated frames? We have to ask this question because it came close to the problem of unifying physics which we had in the modern era.
So, could space-time be flat for both uniform and accelerated frames? Yes, it is. Space-time is flat for both uniform and accelerated frames, and this extensively implies that the universe is flat. You must now know, like I always tell you, that the long-sought unity of the universe is in geometry and not in principles.The long-sought unity of the universe is in geometry and not in principles.Click To Tweet
The big question becomes if the universe is flat, why did modern relativity miss this? Modern relativity missed this because it describes the universe based on one form of space and time. The geometrical disharmony in modern relativity is a natural result of describing uniform and accelerated frames based on the same form of space and time.
The revolution of modern relativity was solely quantitative, so it missed the other part of the revolution which is qualitative.
I want you to listen carefully to me: Modern relativity informs us about how the quantity of space and time changes due to motion, but it failed to tell us how the quality of space and time changes due to motion. This realization is absolutely important.Modern relativity informs us about how the quantity of space and time changes due to motion, but it failed to tell us how the quality of space and time changes due to motion.Click To Tweet
Modern relativity missed the qualitative import of the principles of relativity which when combined with the quantitative import would have given us a theory of relativity which would inform us about how space-time is flat for both uniform and accelerated frames.
This is when we come to post-modern relativity, otherwise called absolute relativity. Now, because post-modern relativity describes motion based on two forms of space and time, it informs us that space-time is flat for both uniform and accelerated frames.
This is why the universe is flat. You must know that the universe is flat because of the two different forms of space and time, and the constitution of the two different forms of space and time is what is called the great conceptualization.
Post-modern relativity is a complete revolution of the principles of relativity. And we now know that modern relativity really had the capacity to give us the theory of everything and not quantum mechanics, but because it was based on one form of space and time, it couldn’t.
The universe is flat for all reference frames. The discovery of how the quality of motion changes due to motion further makes us conscious of scientific truth. It removes whatever skepticism we may have about the capacity of physics to be about truth and it makes us realize that the universe was designed by conscious effort.
In modern relativity, we maintained the same form of space and time for both uniform and accelerated frames, but we changed the geometry of space-time for the two frames. But in post-modern relativity, we change the form of space and time for uniform and accelerated frames, but we maintain the flat Euclidean space-time for the two different frames.
While the change in the quantity of space and time occurs in both uniform and accelerated motion, the change in the quality of space and time only occurs when we translate from uniform motion to accelerated motion. I want you to understand this, for it is the mystery of motion in the universe.
Post-modern physics has changed how we see space and time both quantitatively and qualitatively, completing the relativity’ revolution. The possibility of the change in the quality of space and time hidden from modern physics is how the universe maintains its flatness for all reference frames.
My friend, the universe is flat. And the space-time continuum for uniform frames is referred to as the uniform space-time continuum while the space-time continuum for accelerated frames is referred to as the accelerated space-time continuum.
So, for uniform frames, events occur in the flat Euclidean uniform space-time continuum while for accelerated frames, events occur in the flat Euclidean accelerated space-time continuum.
According to the quality of space and time and not geometry, the space-time continuums in the two branches of modern relativity have the same form. They only have different geometries and there is no fundamental conceptualization of two different space-time continuums in modern relativity.
The two qualitatively different space-time continuums are the first major reason why the universe is flat for all reference frames. Now, let’s discuss the second major reason why the universe is flat.
The Different Compositions of the Two Non-mechanical Waves
Now, the assertion that the universe is flat raises some questions about how light maintains a linear motion for the two Euclidean space-times for both uniform and accelerated frames.
This question is brilliant and important, and it shows us the important and general relationship between the linear motion of a non-mechanical wave and the flat Euclidean space-time.
If we insist that the universe is flat for all reference frames and we have asserted that it is because of the two forms of space and time or space-time continuums, then we have to also resolve how light maintains a linear path in these two space-time continuums.
In this regard, an important discovery of post-modern physics connected to the flatness of the universe is the discovery of the two non-mechanical waves in the universe, which are light and the gravi-electromagnetic wave.
Now, in special relativity which describes uniform frames, we find that light travels in a straight worldline that makes an angle of 45° to the horizontal.
However, in general relativity, we find no such exact analogy or similarity. Instead in general relativity light travels in a geodesic which is a brilliant technical term for a straight line in curved space-time.
What I will now call the concept of non-mechanical linearity has two different definitions in special and general relativity, and I want you to know that this is because modern relativity wrongly maintains that light is the only non-mechanical wave in the universe.
But in the universe, there is another non-mechanical wave that maintains a real straight line in a Euclidean space-time for accelerated frames and not a ‘geodesic’ in a Reimannian space-time, just like light does for uniform frames.
This non-mechanical wave which maintains a real straight line in Euclidean space-time for all accelerated frames is what is called the gravi-electromagnetic wave. However, this wave, though a non-mechanical wave, is different from light or the electromagnetic wave in composition.
Light travels in a straight line in flat Euclidean space-time for all uniform frames as a non-composite electromagnetic wave, but the gravi-electromagnetic wave travels in a straight line in a flat Euclidean space-time as a composite wave, which is obvious us from its term which shows that it consists of light and gravity.
We have light as a linear, unproduced and non-composite non-mechanical wave while we have the gravi-electromagnetic wave as also a linear but composite non-mechanical wave produced by the orthogonality of light and gravity.
So, according to the wisdom of the universe, two differently composed non-mechanical waves are what is needed to maintain real non-mechanical linearity in the two different flat Euclidean space-time continuums for all reference frames.
The existence of two differently composed non-mechanical waves in the universe further assures us that the universe is flat for all reference frames. If we had light as the only the non-mechanical wave in the universe, then the universe as described by general relativity will be the truth.
The two different forms of space and time and the existence of two differently composed non-mechanical waves in the universe are the reasons why the universe is flat. I call these reasons the great scientific truth.
What I now inform you about why the universe is flat is obviously a result of the qualitative nature of the universe which is missing in modern relativity, and that the universe is flat is the greatest discovery of the revolution of relativity.
The Metaphysicality of it All
This part should have come before the last two above, but I let it come now so that you will realize that metaphysics is real science after all.
What I have been informing you so far about the flatness of the universe cannot be found in the physical universe or by physical observation. We have to ascend to the higher perception of the universe which post-modern physics now shows us.
Flat Egyptian art
The geometry of the universe is derived beyond the physical observation of the universe according to space or the more technical space-time, it is metaphysical.
General relativity gives us an obvious description of accelerated motion when it informed us that bodies follow a curved path due to the curvature of space-time by matter. This is obvious or ‘natural’ because we at least observe bodies move in a curved path, deviating from linearity.
So, according to general relativity, the curvature of space-time, which is also called gravity is the cause of heavenly accelerated motion. And this aligns with the proposition in general relativity that the universe is curved and not flat.
But now post-modern relativity or absolute relativity is informing us to the contrary that the universe is flat, so how do we explain the obvious curved path we see bodies travel?
In absolute relativity we don’t, per se, rather we ascend into the metaphysical universe to see what bodies in accelerated motion are really deviating from.
It is in this higher perception that we see that bodies are deviating from orthogonality and not from linearity, that is if there is a deviation. And differently from the physical deviation from linearity which produces a curved path, the metaphysical deviation from orthogonality produces the sensation of inertia.
The metaphysical universe is the experiential universe. The whole assertion that the universe is flat is experiential. We are looking at how Euclidean laws determine our experiences of the universe and not physical observations.
The observed physical curvature of matter and its path have become reduced to effects of the metaphysical universe and not the true objects by which we can derive the laws in which the universe was designed.
Thus, realizing that the laws of the universe are those laws that produce our internal experiences of the universe and not external observations, we have left the physical universe.
And in absolute relativity, the curvature of heavenly bodies is now due to the fact that the gravi-electromagnetic wave from which they emerged during creation has two orthogonal components, light and gravity.
Their body structure does not in any way reflect the structure or character of space-time. There is no curvature in the universe; “do not allow the eye to fool the mind.”
This great article informs you about why the universe is flat, and it is because of the two forms of space and time which results in the two forms of space-time continuums and also because of the two differently composed non-mechanical waves in the universe.
To know the above, which is why the universe is flat, is to have come to the understanding of the mystical wisdom of the universe and to have ascended above physical perception.
Therefore, let all the arts and sciences and let every other aspect of knowledge, whether conceived or not conceived, honour this great scientific truth.
Until next time,
I will be here.
