Re: Design Flaw
More like an understanding flaw.
Take two black holes, they are attracted and merge. Set aside the "bent space" fixup for a minute and consider the nature of the force pulling them together. It's like gravity, but yet cannot be gravity.
Gravity has been observed travelling at the speed of light. To do so, it must follow the same path as light. If light follows curved path ABC then so does gravity to travel at the same speed across AC AB and BC. AC path must follow the curve ABC too. If light cannot escape a black hole, then neither can gravity. Both paths are curved the same way.
So its not gravity.
And we cannot double account for this clumping effect (i.e. claim it as a force, and bent space at the same time). It must be one or the other.
So how fast does this blackhole clumping propagate? Well as the black holes are placed further and further apart, the limit case at infinite distance, means that case it would have to propagate infinitely fast (i.e. take zero time to propagate). Lets label that case H0. If gravity propagates slower than infinity in that case, it would always be missing the black hole (which during the journey has moved). h0 must propagate infinitely fast.
And if it takes *some* time to propagate then it we can label that hUniverse. If you define time as 'nuclear oscillations in an atomic clock' then you can see hUniverse is an oscillating version of h0, and the universe must be finite.
And our clumping effect must be a function of hUniverse. But hUniverse is just a number, that happens to be true for this universe. A sort of underlying electric tone, an oscillating field over which everything is moving. It gives matter its scale and light it's motion and everything is trying to settle to that one tone by evening out the differences... at least for the matter/light in this universe.
OK, so simply double up the hUniverse tone and you've got a brand new clumping force. Triple it and you've got another. Not one gravity, but a whole frigging set of clumping effects, resonanting to a different harmonic. The next level down of blackholes being the 2x harmonic of hUniverse. Trying to settle to a different base 'tone'.
We could change our model now, we have h0, we could model space in terms of h0, and that space does not bend. Suddenly we can model the bend.. The physics would be very very different.
How different? Velocity is no longer in a straight line, its a waddle over 3 or more distinct components of hUniverse. Since they cannot be the equal components, velocity always loops around a finite path. It's a stagger not a straight walk.
Light's path is curved and directly bent by hUniverse. Forces directly interact, e.g. Gravity etc are bent by hUniverse, and all forces interact through hUniverse. Forces are no longer mediated by particles, how well they interact depends on what components of hUniverse they derive from.
Matter cannot both bend space for a bent space model and not bend space for a new h0 based model. It's bending something (the oscillating field), not the coordinate system, of space. We get to choose those coordinate systems.
And then we get to the big problem of being inside this system, trying to understand it as if we are the constant. Its confusing as fook. Look in the sky, see the black hole? The one at the center of the universe? The one so big it can be bigger than the visible universe? No? Let me help you see it.
****The big black hole in the center of the universe.
We perceive light as if it travels in a straight line, we look in a direction and extrapolate local motion out to the edge of the universe and imagine light is travelling in a straight line. We perceive space as if its even, the size of matter and its motion are both affected the same way and so we have no yardstick to compare it with and see the uneveness that must exist.
Our forces (electric, gravity etc) do not propagate in zero time, so we are in a *finite* universe. Light in a finite universe bends around and always hits the event horizon of that inner black hole. All curved paths end at the central black hole. It is the darkness behind the stars.
The edge of the visible universe is the event horizon of the *inner* black hole.
To prove that to yourselves, look for the anomaly. At one place in the sky, the path bends left around the blackhole, and next to it bends right. At one place it bends up and next to it down. One anomaly on each side of the sky, but don't think that is the direction to the universe black hole. It's just locally where those anomalies land. You cannot actually point at the black hole, because you are not modelling in h0 space, you are perceiving in hUniverse space.
