I always want to start with the premises and axioms. They are the things that I assume to be true, and that are necessary components of my ISU
cosmology, if it is to be considered internally consistent. They are givens that cannot be shown to be true or false. They may be unacceptable to
some people, so let me get them out up front.
These are the "axioms", and they represent the underlying concepts upon which my model relies, and with which my model will be completely
consistent. They are what I call the three infinities; 1) The medium of space, 2) Wave energy traversing the medium of space, and 3) Time that simply
passes, though time won't be measured to be passing at the same rate by identical clocks that are moving relative to each other.
To elaborate on those infinities, it seems logical to start with the medium of space. Speaking dimensionally, space is three dimensions and has no
boundaries; it is referred to as boundless in my hobby-model. Space contains a medium that carries spherical energy waves; once a wave is propagated,
it expands spherically until it is interrupted. When I refer to the three infinities, I am referring to space dimensionally with its infinite length,
height, and depth, as well as the medium that fills it, and of the wave energy that is continually traversing it. None of those things had a
beginning; they simply have always been that way. If that is an acceptable condition for the universe, then follow along.
The medium of space doesn't expand, contract, bend, fold, or break, except to the extent that it hosts wave action, and therefore has a certain
responsiveness to the passing of spherical waves. I call that response a sponginess that allows the density of the medium to carry waves and
accommodate multiple wave fronts passing through the same space. It is as if space would be restored back to its pre-wave natural state after a wave
front has passed.
That statement is misleading when it comes to what my model maintains about the possibility of space being restored back to some pre-wave state
because in a cosmology that invokes the three infinities, there never was a pre-wave state, but the concept is useful in describing the sponginess of
the medium of space.
The concept of a pre-wave natural state also is useful because it sets up for the definition of a universal average wave energy density (energy
density for short) that is important because the energy density in any given volume of space can vary, and it can be useful to compare the local
energy density to the universal average wave energy density for talking purposes.
Equally important to the model is the sponginess itself. It takes a finite amount of time for a wave front to impose its incremental energy to the
local density of the medium. This is the characteristic that governs the rate at which waves traverse the medium. If the local energy density is low,
waves travel faster, and if the local energy density is high, waves travel slower. Therefore the factor of time is accompanied by a factor of
distance. Thus there is a finite duration and a finite amount of space that it takes for the wave front to overcome the sponginess and fully impose
its energy on the space it traverses. That duration and distance is governed by the energy density of the space involved, and it is a continuous
process, as opposed to a discrete process.
If the medium of space is spongy, then the name I give our universe is appropriate, "The Infinite Spongy Universe", or ISU.
