We live in a multiverse; a lot of people have heard this statement and have a general understanding of what this means. But sometimes the whole concept of what is a universe is can be confusing. Since just about everything I’ll talk about in the posts after this require at least a general understanding of what a universe is and how it works, and how they relate to other universes, and the general structure of existence, I need to address it here, to at least make an attempt to get everyone on the same page.
What is a universe? A universe is a number of things simultaneously. I’m going to address each one point by point.

A universe is a holographic projection of a fractal – note, in popular culture a holographic projection is often portrayed as an illusionary image of something that is fundamentally not real, a universe holograph is very very ‘real’ in every sense of the word. Just because something is a holograph doesn’t mean it isn’t real. We use holographs and holograms in order to make 3D-like images on 2D spaces or projected into our 3D world. A holograph in its essence is the projection of light to create something, and in the case of a universe, it is the projection of light to create a very complex, very real, living fractal.

This, of course, requires that we define what a fractal is. A fractal is an infinitely repeating, self-similar pattern. The Fractal Foundation http://fractalfoundation.org/resources/what-are-fractals/ provides a brief description and a few examples (although the pyramidal fractal is problematic, but we’ll get to that in a few posts). When you’re dealing with fractals in a 2D environment such as on a computer screen, you can make very very beautiful, intricate designs with fractals. The neat thing about fractals is that when the designs are repeated, patterns begin to form that actually look like things that exist in real life – plants, animals, geological features, cosmological features, etc… This is no accident. All life is based on fractals, because the universe is a giant, multidimensional, intricate fractal. And within that fractal is contained the possibility for just about everything you can imagine. Examining a fractal at a given iteration point in its context will allow you to see what the expression of that fractal looks like. Different levels of iteration will show different aspects of the pattern in their expressions. This is what we mean when we talk about a fractal expression.

A universe is infinite. This means that there is no actual limit to what it can contain. It goes on ‘forever’. (Note, infinities can actually be different sizes. If you want more explanation on that notion, and don’t mind the math, check this out https://www.sciencenews.org/article/small-infinity-big-infinity.) And, as long as a universe is alive, it’s growing. Not expanding, growing. New matter is being created, new energy is being added, new souls are born and expressed for the very first time. Some of it does get recycled, but there is new being added all the time. As long as the universe remains attached to the Tree of Life (more on that below), the universe will be growing.

The insides of a universe occupies actual space… and plenty of theoretical space as well. A universe has several spatial components, D-space, spirit realms, ‘potential’ space, and unexpressed possibility. D-space (my term for it) is the actual ‘physical’ space that we occupy, not only in the 3rd dimension but in other densities. D-space is what we usually mean when we talk about ‘the universe’ in a cosmic sense. D-space contains your planets, suns, solar systems, cosmic debris, nebulae and solar breeding grounds, galaxies, black holes, galactic superclusters, and the like. Basically, all the ‘Point A to Point B’ stuff is in D-space. D-space exists in all dimensions in a given universe, from its lowest dimensional point to its highest, in our case, dimensions 1 through 12 (we have 12 ‘dimensions’ or densities of matter/consciousness in our particular universe, though it appears there might be a 13th one growing).

D-space conforms to mathematical dimensions (as opposed to densities of matter/consciousness that are often called dimensions, both by me and others – densities are overlapping layers within D-space) such as length, width, height, space, mass, time, etc.; you can navigate D-space in a rational fashion if you have the means (i.e., you can travel down the road to a destination, you can fly across the skies, you can sail across bodies of water, you can fly between celestial bodies, use portals, gateways, and space-bending tech to navigate vast interstellar distances, and so on). Things that exist in D-space in one dimension/density will exist in other dimensions, they just might be expressed differently. For instance, Jupiter in our 3rd dimension is an uninhabitable gas giant. In dimensions farther up the fractal iteration (because this is an aspect of the fractal as well), Jupiter is not a gas giant but a rocky planet capable of supporting life. In some of the other dimensions, Earth is uninhabitable – but there is still an Earth placeholder of some sort. This is just an example.

D-space tends to be pretty rational, predictable and ‘real’. Things generally act and move according to understandable and predictable ‘laws of nature’ or constants. These are things that can be expressed mathematically, for the most part. While there are pockets of places where things like universal constants seem to take a vacation, these are mostly just eddies in the great flow of the universe – areas where some exception or another encounters another exception and makes an exceptional spot, either for a short period of time or a long one. Within a particular density layer or dimension, D-space acts in pretty straightforward ways. The nature of transition between dimensions or layers means that there will be some funky stuff going on, particularly from the perspective of the layer below, but again, it is usually something that can be explained rationally once enough knowledge of the process is obtained.

In addition to D-space, a universe has spirit realms. Spirit realms can be described as being ‘at 90 degrees to D-space’, because they don’t correspond to rational, physical locations. Spirit realms can be any size, from little pocket realms to vast, infinite expanses. They can be created or natural. They have their own constants and their own physical ‘laws’ (think of these as mathematical laws and conditions of existence, not rules imposed by a being, though some spirit realms have those as well). They may or may not be connected to other spirit realms or the D-space portion of the universe, and this connection may or may not be temporary or constant. Navigating spirit realms is a crapshoot. To get from Point A to Point B in D-Space, like I said above, you pretty much travel in a rational fashion. To get from Point A to Point B in spirit realms may involve a travel path like something out of Alice in Wonderland or getting into Narnia – enter an old wardrobe in one realm and come out of someone’s fireplace in another, walk to the corner store and step in the bathroom to arrive at yet another realm, where you fall out of the sky and into a whirlpool which takes you to yet another realm, where you materialize in a desert, take three steps towards the mirage and one step backwards to arrive at your intended destination… and this is assuming that those spirit realms have linked points and the paths are all working they way they’re supposed to.

Spirit realms can be owned and created by beings. Natural spirit realms aren’t owned by anyone, and may have native lifeforms and inhabitants, such as the fae realms. Artificial spirit realms are owned by someone or created by someone. Artificial spirit realms have their own sets of laws which dictate what things can and can’t happen – and may or may not have rules as mentioned above. Natural realms may have very different natural laws from what D-space does, but they are rarely self-conflicting – a realm with conflicting laws can exist but must gain or obtain energy in order to artificially maintain its own coherency. Artificial realms are the only things that meet that requirement, because natural realms will generally ‘wink out’ if there’s nothing powering them. So an artificial realm (such as the Silver Legion’s headquarters realm) requires an input of energy in order to maintain a contradictory state. (The Silver Legion’s realm is mostly self-sustaining, but we have reservoirs of power for those occasions when we need to make the place very illogical, and for illogical infrastructure, such as our arena systems.)

Spirit realms connect to each other, sometimes these are deliberately created and other times natural paths occur. Spirit realms can also have intersection points with D-space. There are some popular religious and new age concepts that are based on spirit realms. Heaven and Hell are spirit realms (and there are multiple versions of these). The Astral Plane is a spirit realm, as are the two layers of spirit realm planes between Earth and the outer edges of the Astral plane – the Etheric plane and the Dreamlands. One of the ways to ‘get’ to any given spirit realm from this planet is to go through the Astral plane as a kind of intermediary zone. It can even be used to access other dimensional layers in D-space.

‘Potential’ space is a tricky concept. A universe contains all potentials and all possibilities. Sometimes we like to talk about alternate universes and alternate timelines where everything is like here, but with a little (or huge) difference here and there. This is ‘potential’ space. It exists because it has to, and it has to exist because all variables of a given existence must be explored, but is generally not accessible to us in a full experiential fashion. There are people who can view or travel between our experienced reality and other realities, but this is generally not a common trait. Changes made in alternate timelines and alternate universes won’t affect our experiential reality. These are separate realities that exist because they have to, we can’t necessarily use them (though people do attempt to); nevertheless they make up a very large proportion of a universe.

Finally, a universe contains unexpressed possibility. These are all the things that have not yet been expressed within a universe – they ‘haven’t happened yet’, or they’re part of an unresolvable paradox where one part is currently in expression in the active universe. This is all the stuff that ‘could be’ but isn’t yet or isn’t currently possible given current circumstances.

A universe is both creation and creator. A universe is alive, and a universe is conscious (and is consciousness). A universe is made up of a Source creating itself. All of those things I mentioned above – all the space, matter, potential and possible things, are part of that creation and are part of the Source. The Source is the consciousness of a universe, and it is the substance of the universe, and it is the energy of a universe. All matter within a universe is projected from the Source of that universe. All beings within a universe are consciousnesses projected from that Source. Non-native beings entering into a universe have the option of becoming expressions of that Source as well and becoming naturalized. It has been popularly described that existence is Source exploring itself. This is pretty much true. A universe is a Source’s attempt to explore and experience itself to the fullest extent possible. In that way, a universe is very much a living thing. The notion of consciousness – of awareness, thought, subjective and objective experience – cannot be divorced from that. We are consciousness, and we, as individual consciousnesses, all spring from Source.

Universes are alive. They are born, and they can die. Universe death occurs when the consciousnesses that make up a universe disconnect from the consciousnesses of the Source creator of the universe and the bond between the Source and the creation is broken, and the attachment to the Tree of Life is severed. Universes can also collapse due to contradictory natural constants – we’ll get more into that later.

There are many other living universes, and they are all attached to a great Tree of Life. The Tree of Life is an infinite fractal of existence, in which each and every point of the fractilic expression is a universe (and no, it’s not the same thing that is presented by Kabbalah, that’s something different entirely). Every universe attached to the Tree was once a being, a person, a soul in a universe itself, that went down the spiritual evolution path of becoming an ‘experience provider’ rather than an ‘experiencer’. The Tree itself is alive and conscious, but that is not a unified consciousness – there is no one Source of the Tree. No one owns or is responsible for all of existence, and no one rules. Period.

When a being wishes to become a universe, they first start out by being an experience provider in other ways. They may become a planetary consciousness, or a solar consciousness, or galactic consciousness, etc. They dip their toes in it, so to speak. If they like it, they spend many existences learning about being an experience provider before they are finally able to become a Source and form a new leaf on the tree. When they become a new leaf on the tree (a newborn universe), they receive a copy of the base fractal of existence from the universe in which they first became an experience provider. They are then able to modify that fractal in order to explore themselves as a universe. Every universe is unique; every universe is different.

There are a few catches to becoming a Source/universe. When a Source becomes a universe, there’s a few strings attached. The consciousnesses that will be expressed as beings within the universe are technically creations of that Source, but they are also present in other forms in other universes simultaneously. You could say there is a mutualistic relationship between a Source and the consciousnesses that become the experiencers within a universe – they agree to become part of the Source and help the Source explore itself by living and having experiences provided by the unique lens of that Source’s expression of the fractal of existence. The Source thus creates that version of them. In the meantime, they do that Source the favour of playing in that Source’s playground.

One of the requirements of becoming a Source and thus a universe is the agreement to respect the free will of experiencing beings. Because Sources must respect the free will of beings playing in their playgrounds, it is not able or permitted to simultaneously be a singular exceptional differentiated consciousness within itself, separate from the rest of itself – it cannot rule itself like a king. All conscious beings that a Source creates must be created free and equal and the Source cannot personify within itself as a special ruler over its creation. Nor can it appoint special beings to enact a tyrannical will that violates the free will of the rest of the beings for its ego-benefit (more on this in a later post). These are the requirements that allows the Source to remain attached to the Tree of Life and to be able to draw upon the very large infinity of possibility contained by the Tree – that is, stay alive and keep growing. Without that attachment, a Source no longer has the capacity of infinite energy/soul/matter generation, because at that point it has become a tyranny and the Tree will not tolerate a tyranny without end to be fed by itself.

If a Source really wants to do either one or both of those two things, it can still have a chance to do so, but it must detach from the Tree. When it detaches from the tree, it becomes finite. It has a definite beginning and end, and matter, energy and souls within it become finite resources which are consumed over time as fuel for the workings of that universe. Just as artificial spirit realms with contradictory constants must use energy to maintain themselves, a Source universe that violates the Laws of the Tree must use energy to maintain itself, it no longer gets this for free from the Tree. It will eventually wither and die, and all those beings who became trapped within that monstrous tyranny will be re-released back to the Tree. It is this way to allow those beings that do not wish to remain enslaved to the will of another the opportunity to return to a free willed state.

Stay tuned for Part II – Where Did It All Go Wrong.”

Daily Galaxy .com – Other Universes are Pulling on Our Universe – New Planck Data Triggers Controversy

R-OLDEST-GALAXY-large570

Daily Galaxy ,com
Is our universe merely one of billions? Evidence of the existence of ‘multiverse’ revealed for the first time by a cosmic map of background radiation data gathered by Planck telescope. The first ‘hard evidence’ that other universes exist has been claimed to have been found by cosmologists studying new Planck data released this past June. They have concluded that it shows anomalies that can only have been caused by the gravitational pull of other universes.

“Such ideas may sound wacky now, just like the Big Bang theory did three generations ago,” says George Efstathiou, professor of astrophysics at Cambridge University.”But then we got evidence and now it has changed the whole way we think about the universe.”

Scientists had predicted that it should be evenly distributed, but the map shows a stronger concentration in the south half of the sky and a ‘cold spot’ that cannot be explained by current understanding of physics. Laura Mersini-Houghton, theoretical physicist at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, and Richard Holman, professor at Carnegie Mellon University, predicted that anomalies in radiation existed and were caused by the pull from other universes in 2005. Mersini-Houghton will be in Britain soon promoting this theory and, we expect, the hard evidence at the Hay Festival on May 31 and at Oxford on June 11.

Dr Mersini-Houghton believes her hypothesis has been proven from the Planck data that data has been used to create a map of light from when the universe was just 380,000 years old. “These anomalies were caused by other universes pulling on our universe as it formed during the Big Bang,” she says. “They are the first hard evidence for the existence of other universes that we have seen.”

Columbia University mathematician Peter Woit writes in his blog, Not Even Wrong, that in recent years there have been many claims made for “evidence” of a multiverse, supposedly found in the CMB data. “Such claims often came with the remark that the Planck CMB data would convincingly decide the matter. When the Planck data was released two months ago, I looked through the press coverage and through the Planck papers for any sign of news about what the new data said about these multiverse evidence claims. There was very little there; possibly the Planck scientists found these claims to be so outlandish that it wasn’t worth the time to look into what the new data had to say about them.

“One exception,” Woit adds, “was this paper, where Planck looked for evidence of ‘dark flow’. They found nothing, and a New Scientist article summarized the situation: ‘The Planck team’s paper appears to rule out the claims of Kashlinsky and collaborators,’ says David Spergel of Princeton University, who was not involved in the work. If there is no dark flow, there is no need for exotic explanations for it, such as other universes, says Planck team member Elena Pierpaoli at the University of Southern California, Los Angeles. “You don’t have to think of alternatives.'”

Dark Flow” sounds like a new SciFi Channel series. It’s not! The dark flow is controversial because the distribution of matter in the observed universe cannot account for it. Its existence suggests that some structure beyond the visible universe — outside our “horizon” — is pulling on matter in our vicinity.

Back in the Middle Ages, maps showed terrifying images of sea dragons at the boundaries of the known world. Today, scientists have observed strange new motion at the very limits of the known universe – kind of where you’d expect to find new things, but they still didn’t expect this. A huge swath of galactic clusters seem to be heading to a cosmic hotspot and nobody knows why.

Cosmologists regard the microwave background — a flash of light emitted 380,000 years after the universe formed — as the ultimate cosmic reference frame. Relative to it, all large-scale motion should show no preferred direction. A 2010 study tracked the mysterious cosmic ‘dark flow’ to twice the distance originally reported. The study was led by Alexander Kashlinsky at NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Maryland.

“This is not something we set out to find, but we cannot make it go away,” Kashlinsky said. “Now we see that it persists to much greater distances – as far as 2.5 billion light-years away,” he added.

Dark flow describes a possible non-random component of the peculiar velocity of galaxy clusters. The actual measured velocity is the sum of the velocity predicted by Hubble’s Law plus a small and unexplained (or dark) velocity flowing in a common direction. According to standard cosmological models, the motion of galaxy clusters with respect to the cosmic microwave background should be randomly distributed in all directions. However, analyzing the three-year WMAP data using the kinematic Sunyaev-Zel’dovich effect, the authors of the study found evidence of a “surprisingly coherent” 600–1000 km/s flow of clusters toward a 20-degree patch of sky between the constellations of Centaurus and Vela.

The clusters appear to be moving along a line extending from our solar system toward Centaurus/Hydra, but the direction of this motion is less certain. Evidence indicates that the clusters are headed outward along this path, away from Earth, but the team cannot yet rule out the opposite flow.

“We detect motion along this axis, but right now our data cannot state as strongly as we’d like whether the clusters are coming or going,” Kashlinsky said.

The unexplained motion has hundreds of millions of stars dashing towards a certain part of the sky at over eight hundred kilometers per second. Not much speed in cosmic terms, but the preferred direction certainly is: most cosmological models have things moving in all directions equally at the extreme edges of the universe. Something that could make things aim for a specific spot on such a massive scale hasn’t been imagined before. The scientists are keeping to the proven astrophysical strategy of calling anything they don’t understand “dark”, terming the odd motion a “dark flow”.

A black hole can’t explain the observations – objects would accelerate into the hole, while the NASA scientists see constant motion over a vast expanse of a billion light-years. You have no idea how big that is. This is giant on a scale where it’s not just that we can’t see what’s doing it; it’s that the entire makeup of the universe as we understand it can’t be right if this is happening.

The hot X-ray-emitting gas within a galaxy cluster scatters photons from the cosmic microwave background (CMB). Because galaxy clusters don’t precisely follow the expansion of space, the wavelengths of scattered photons change in a way that reflects each cluster’s individual motion.

This results in a minute shift of the microwave background’s temperature in the cluster’s direction. The change, which astronomers call the kinematic Sunyaev-Zel’dovich (KSZ) effect, is so small that it has never been observed in a single galaxy cluster.

But in 2000, Kashlinsky, working with Fernando Atrio-Barandela at the University of Salamanca, Spain, demonstrated that it was possible to tease the subtle signal out of the measurement noise by studying large numbers of clusters.

In 2008, armed with a catalog of 700 clusters assembled by Harald Ebeling at the University of Hawaii and Dale Kocevski, now at the University of California, Santa Cruz, the researchers applied the technique to the three-year WMAP data release. That’s when the mystery motion first came to light.

The new study builds on the previous one by using the five-year results from WMAP and by doubling the number of galaxy clusters.

“It takes, on average, about an hour of telescope time to measure the distance to each cluster we work with, not to mention the years required to find these systems in the first place,” Ebeling said. “This is a project requiring considerable followthrough.”

According to Atrio-Barandela, who has focused on understanding the possible errors in the team’s analysis, the new study provides much stronger evidence that the dark flow is real. For example, the brightest clusters at X-ray wavelengths hold the greatest amount of hot gas to distort CMB photons. “When processed, these same clusters also display the strongest KSZ signature — unlikely if the dark flow were merely a statistical fluke,” he said.

In addition, the team, which now also includes Alastair Edge at the University of Durham, England, sorted the cluster catalog into four “slices” representing different distance ranges. They then examined the preferred flow direction for the clusters within each slice. While the size and exact position of this direction display some variation, the overall trends among the slices exhibit remarkable agreement.

The researchers are currently working to expand their cluster catalog in order to track the dark flow to about twice the current distance. Improved modeling of hot gas within the galaxy clusters will help refine the speed, axis, and direction of motion.

Future plans call for testing the findings against newer data released from the WMAP project and the European Space Agency’s Planck mission, which is also currently mapping the microwave background.

Which is fantastic! Such discoveries force a whole new set of ideas onto the table which, even if they turn out to be wrong, are the greatest ways to advance science and our understanding of everything. One explanation that’s already been offered is that our universe underwent a period of hyper-inflation early in its existence, and everything we think of as the vast and infinite universe is actually a small corner under the sofa of the real expanse of reality. Which would be an amazing, if humbling, discovery.

The image at the top of the page shows the most distant object we have ever observed with high confidence, according to Wei Zheng, the leading astronomer of the team at Johns Hopkins University who that noticed the galaxy on multiple images from both the Hubble and Spitzer space telescopes. At 13.2-billion years old, we are technically seeing this galaxy when it was very young, but its light is only reaching Earth now.
