Wirehead, You seem to be a very nice person that does not put other people down, just because they have a differing view. Thank you for that.
In the limited amount of time I have this morning, I will try to convey what thoughts I had last night about how everything seems to be moving away
from each other, and at the same time, there could still be a central void in the universe, that is always getting larger.
I could probably draw a diagram, and make it more clear, but writing will have to do, for now.
Ok, so all matter is fused together in a super dense, super hot area, and then, the big bang occurs. Matter is moving away from the central point
where it was all fused together.
This is where I may sound either incredibly dumb, or I might make some sense, to some people.
I am going back to the ballon analogy, but instead of just a flat surface, like the outside of the balloon, we are in a layer, or shell if you like,
the thickness of what scientists have determined as the distance of the known universe.
So, around the vast empty void of which everything began moving away from, is a ring of galaxies, the thickness of whatever we think the age, or
distance of the universe is.
So how can everything seem to be moving away from each other, while at the same time be moving away from a central point?
The only thing that I could think of, would be, the matter at the outside of the ring, is moving faster than what is in the middle, and the middle is
moving faster than what would be at the inner edge of the ring, the area nearest the ever exspanding void.
If we view the galaxies at the outer edge of the ring, they will appear to be moving away from us, because they are moving away from the center at a
faster speed than we are..
If we view the galaxies at the inner edge, they appear to be moving away from us, not because they are, but because we are moving away from them at a
faster speed, so we get that illusion.
We are all moving away from the center, with the outer edge moving the fastest, and the inner edge moving the slowest.
That is the only thing I can think of that would make everything seem to be moving away from each other, while at the same time, be moving away from
So if what I am saying is true, when we view the farthest galaxies, we are only viewing the ones in our area of the ring. We probably could never view
the galaxies at he opposite side of the ring, due to the massive space/time that is the center void of the universe.
Also, if my theory is true, eventually everything will be so far apart, that a being in one galaxy, may never be able to see another galaxy.
Just a thought. Off to the real world now. Will check back in. Thanks
