Birth of our Universe Part 2


Figure 2. Membranes

The bubbles, made up by the membranes, are simply energies desire for energy. Infinitesimal waves of energy, are attracted to each other out of that incredible vastness. Collected by membranes, a bit here, a bit of energy there they become the fabric. Time for a membrane seems almost limitless. There is a form to the membranes. At first, they are almost a spheroid. But, with age, they grow increasingly globular. The first stages are vulnerable. They can be absorbed by larger membranes. But, as they grow, that changes. Gravity grows along with their size. Because a membrane can develop into an immense size, correspondingly, their gravity grows to enormous powers as well. The bits of energy, which makes them up, are all almost entirely the opposite. Tiny charges which race into existence in one dimension and out again into another in less than a flash. The place they leave behind has some of the properties of a placeholder on the runway to existence. It’s as important as our concept of zero. Gravity hardly notices their individual selves. In their gathering smallness they build the membrane. They are the wild quantum dance of probability, and still they are. Higgs bits, subatomic waves of energy, cannot be broken into smaller bits and so they suffer no entropy. They are the perfect stuff of the fabric, the material of the membranes.

The enormous membranes have problems too. Sometimes a collision can produce a spark that causes a tear. The subatomic waves can unzip all the way around that part of the bubble. The collapsing margins will reform to enclose both parts. During the unzipping, what can seem like an enormous amount of subatomic waves. can be flung off into space. the unzipping runs along lines of weakness. Sometimes the calving can even be more dramatic, producing several smaller bubbles of different sizes. The lifetime of the smaller bubbles is dependent on the proximity of the larger bubbles.

Why am I convinced that our membrane forms a bubble-like structure? Well, because bubbles are so common and convenient. In truth I don’t really imagine that most are a perfect sphere. Like a bubble, the shape changes depending on the stress and pressure placed on it, from both inside and outside sources. This bubble, of which our Universe is a part, is large, probably immense would be a better word. Our vocabulary simply doesn’t have a word big enough to encompass it. Maybe our bubble contains a thousand universes, or a million, or a hundred million. My limited mind cannot begin to discern its limitations.

Our concept of “membrane” can describe a kind of “flat earth” perspective. The evidence seems to indicate that our Universe is flat. It’s like standing in a wide flat plane and looking at the horizon. And so, when I use the term membrane, it defines an area containing a field, which can maintain its own confines and barriers. It seems most natural that the field would curve, eventually joining itself, forming a bubble of shared energy. Our Universe does not form the bubble. Instead, our Universe is the shape of a shallow dimple riding within the fabric. The structure itself, the Higgs Field, desires to maintain its homogeneous form. What we define as entropy in simply the common, the stable phase, of the general energy plasma that makes up the membrane. The Higgs Field is the opposite of chaos. It is the perfect fabric. Every reaction to and within the plasma will eventually return to its perfect state. Hence, our idea of entropy.

These huge bubbles, defined by their membrane of subatomic waves, don’t actually collide into each other. I call them Higgs “bits,” because they are not particles. They are bits of energy, vibrating waves of energy. The plasma provides a surrounding charge on the surface of the membrane, a barrier, which usually repels other bubbles. The gravity of their mass attracts, while their charge repels. When these bubbles near one another, a disturbance begins to develop in the field, causing waves and a massive flood of subatomic bits, rushing toward the near contact area. An agitation, a blister, a pucker, a vortex, is formed in the fabric as it nears the other bubble. By that massive flow of energy, the bits converge into a progression, compressing them into an atmosphere of intensifying heat. In the center of agitation, they are forced together to become the particles which we describe as protons and neutrons. They collect other bits of energy, electrons, which offer them a certain kind of stability and the potential for bonding. Suddenly we’ve got the building blocks, for the matter and energy, which we describe as our physical Universe.

Over and over again, I have heard scientists describe our Universe exploding out of an area as small as a tennis ball, the Big Bang. I see it as a “Big Pop,” the spring action of a stretched field of energy. I suppose that it could be said that our Universe comes out of a zone, which was smaller than a BB pellet. It was the very focus of the collision of subatomic forces. I don’t believe that the pucker ever gets that small. I imagine it as light years across. The pucker needs to be narrow enough to allow an intense cloud of charges to collide with a force great enough to result in the concentrated heat and pressure causing the initial particles to form (Figure 2).
