|A painting I did the day after writing about space|
Actually it's my desk work surface and was not
at all intentional
I'm still alive and as always busy. I don't have access to the internet unless I go to my brother's factory which is where I normally check my e-mail and so on. Maybe I should do some blogging while I'm here too.
Anyway. I've been thinking about our view with regards to the universe and have been wondering whether we may be looking at the science all wrong. The other night I sat at my computer and decided to put my thoughts down on paper so to speak. And this is what I wrote down. Hope you enjoy it.
A back to front look at black holes and galaxies
What is a black hole? We don’t really know, despite the fact that physicists have been working on this mystery for a very long time and have been doing all the math, but still we don’t know. We do know that the centre of a galaxy is very bright and not black at all, as far as we can visually determine. The only thing that that indicates is that the galactic centre is very tightly packed and whatever is causing this massive conglomeration is very powerful indeed. As we move further from the galactic centre the strength and influence of this cause diminishes to the point where at the galactic edge it is negligible. Because the galaxies don’t fly apart, as one would expect in a revolving system, we are left wondering whether there is some dark energy or mass that is holding the stars in place countering this natural effect called centrifugal force. We do know that measurable gravity, which we don’t really understand either, is also less than required to substantiate the current understanding of the galactic mechanics previously hypothesized. This Cause is currently thought to be a huge black hole of immense dimensions and incredible gravity dragging matter in from the surrounding galactic material.
But I have another idea about our galaxy and the universe. We know a lot about superconductivity from studies and experiments over the past number of decades and people are sitting up and doing serious research with various materials and magnets. There are people doing computer simulations with the data we have gleaned so far and seriously weird surprises are popping up. Here is my hypothesis.
Superconductors and magnets repel each other. The superconductor, when introduced to a magnetic field the resultant manifestation shows that superconductor doesn’t actually repel the magnet but rather holds it in position at a specific distance which could be governed by the strength of the magnetic field. (This will require experimentation, do two equally sized magnets each with a different gauss reading being tested simultaneously. Do they levitate at different distances from the superconducting material?) The star systems that make up a galaxy all have magnetic fields generated within themselves which vary according to conditions within the system itself. This variation of magnetic strength may be the cause that determines the position of each star system within the galaxy itself. Could the centre of the galaxy in fact be an area of superconductivity? Because superconducting conditions occur at very low temperatures, such as those in outer space which have been measured at as low as 3 degrees kelvin, just above absolute zero which is 0 degrees kelvin, the conditions for super-magnetism are present in abundance. Is space one enormous superconductor?
So we have a superconducting area in an almost absolute zero void with a north pole and a south pole with very strong lines of force emanating from each pole creating two streamers of energy moving out into the void. This can in fact be seen in galaxies throughout the universe, galaxies with streams of energy emanating from their poles in spectacular displays. The superconductive effect emanating from the galactic center which neither repels nor attracts the magnetic star systems surrounding the superconductor, holding it instead in position within this equatorial zone which is like a plane surrounding the galactic center in diminishing strength and density the greater the distance. This hypothesis could take care of a few of the quandaries plaguing physicists, black holes, dark energy and dark matter among them.

observations, reveal this spiral of hot gasses
The Milky Way galaxy has at its centre a very bright area where the stars are closely packed, from a front elevation, judging from other galaxies we can observe face on, it would look like a central mass of stars having spiral arms of stars spaced slightly more sparsely the further from the center they are. The center of the Milky Way galaxy would have a central dome on either side of an immense disk of stars. In relation to the disk the central sphere of stars would be smaller in diameter but a lot more densely inhabited and the brightest area in the galaxy.
So let’s do a mind experiment at this point. If we were to imagine the universe without any stars or galaxies, that leaves us with an immense expanse of black. If we imagine now that that black isn’t everywhere but like a great ocean with warmer patches and colder patches distributed throughout this ocean surface and stretching down into the ocean. I’m trying to put this into our everyday way of seeing therefore the ocean analogy. Now imagine some of those colder patches have gotten so cold that the space within those patches becomes superconductive. We still don’t have any stars or galaxies, it’s as dark as you could ever imagine, and all we have is this ocean with some unbelievably cold areas. Now in this super cold area of the galaxy things begin to happen, particles begin to form. Some of these particles have the magnetism of the very cold state they are forming in with super conductive conditions all round. Is it possible that the centre of the Milky Way galaxy isn’t dragging the rest of matter in but is instead still creating it? What if there wasn’t a big bang but an ever growing universe that started slowly and is still going strong? These particles did a number of things in the early stages of galaxy formation, they clumped together as one would imagine in zero gravity, thus their combined magnetism grew until they were repelled by the superconducting centre to form stars with huge magnetic fields in the spiral arms we see today all in their assigned place. They were not repelled completely but were moved to a specific position in the cold area. As more and more particles formed so too did stars filling the arms. In time, possibly, gravity or some other intergalactic force had an influence on the arms and they began to curve into spirals or maybe that is just what the field around a superconductor looks like on a grand scale. So now we have one galaxy, still super cooled at the centre and still superconductive surrounded by huge masses of magnetic stars in immense spiral arms reaching many light years into the universe. But this wasn’t the only cold patch in that incredible ocean we first imagined, there were billions of them. And now today there are billions of galaxies in the universe, scientific observations have revealed that the universe seems to be growing at ever faster rates and that everything is moving away from everything else. Where does the material come from for this expanding universe? When we look out at the universe what we are seeing are those galaxies drifting about in that earlier ocean each one a superconductive hotspot so to speak.
So here’s the thing; is it possible that we have been looking at the universe in the wrong way? We have been told that the universe has billions of galaxies sometimes in super clusters that seem to line up like arteries or strings. That at the centre of galaxies are black holes with immense gravity that allow nothing to escape. We have been told that everything began in a big bang, but what if it didn’t? Have we been looking at the universe as if in a mirror? My hypothesis, although still in the very beginning stages of this investigation, would read thus; the universe is growing, galaxies seem to be huge disks held in an invisible grip, their spiral arms and stars don’t separate from the main structure of the galaxy and move ever further from the galactic centre. At the centre of the galaxy there is no super dense body of gravity but instead a superconducting area of space. Between a super cool superconductor and the magnet hovering above it is a space that, on a galactic scale, could possibly be easily traversed. This superconductive effect would be effective throughout the galaxy with spacing of solar systems possibly being determined by their magnetic fields and the strength of the superconductivity in the immediate area of the solar system. As in experimental results with superconductors where a magnet levitated by a superconductive material in very cool conditions always levitates to the same height above the material, but in lifting the magnet the superconductor seems to be tethered to the magnet by some invisible force. There is no noise, no exhaust, no motor, just super cold conditions, a magnet and something that becomes superconductive in those conditions.
What could possibly cause such a system to manifest?
The one thing we do know about intergalactic space is that temperatures get as low as they possibly can, 3 degrees kelvin. Is it possible that matter could have formed in these super cooled superconductive areas of the universe? I’m not sure but do know it would make an interesting investigation.
Anything that in any way could be superconductive, at these low temperatures, would. We still don’t know much about alternative states of matter, we don’t even know where the matter we are made of comes from and how it was formed. We have theories which sound very feasible and could well be spot on but we still can’t tell. Is it time to for us to do some serious research into alternatives to the black holes, dark matter, dark energy and the big bang theory?
Applications for this new paradigm.
There would, if this hypothesis turns out to be valid, be quite a few possibilities. If, instead of carrying large payloads of fuel for the journey and using conventional rockets, intergalactic transporters surfed a wave of superconductive energy, possibly being driven at enormous speeds, even being able to journey from star system to star system. I’m not sure of the speed of the forces within a superconductor but I can’t imagine them being far short of the speed of light. If, in researching this hypothesis, we find a way to harness that superconductive state and use it, wow.
Other changes would happen too. We will come to realize our place in the universe and our neighbourhood The Milky Way galaxy. We will be able to see the universe in its entirety with understanding of how it works, what it is and how to live in this space.
Knowing the origin of the universe is one of the longest quests in history and has been enduring for millennia. I’m just curious.
I would be very interested to know what you think. A reply from a someone who understands physics and astronomy would be fantastic, I'm not that smart so am open to comment by everyone.
Have a great time until next we meat, Geoff.
