The Importance of the Observer
The twin demisphere model points to Centre A/B recession at c, the ‘half-circumference’ journey of light, and other observer-centric phenomena which occur in accordance with Special Relativity. Diagrams show the true ‘Pac-Man’ positions and distances of all objects in the sky, including the existence of a ‘ghost universe’.
Distant galaxies – i.e. only those located in the observer’s opposite demisphere – experience the ‘Antarctica effect’ of map projection on a sliding scale of distance. This phenomenon, which I refer to as ‘2D equatorial lensing’, is, I believe, completely new to science. Counter-intuitively, as a ‘dimensional’ effect this results in phenomena which are both lensed and real, as though the magnifying glass actually grew the bug. As a result, reddening, diffusion and persistent visibility of early galaxies, the cosmic infra-red background (CIB), and the CMB turn out to be all the same phenomenon on a sliding scale of distance.
In addition, because light projected over a wider area appears dimmer, 2D equatorial lensing explains the light anomaly from distant Type Ia supernovae as discovered by the two US teams in 1998, and – falling like a house of cards – the accelerating universe need therefore not be postulated, whilst the absence of observational evidence for dark energy serves as evidence of its non-existence.
The idea is explored that, as a finite Pac-Man whole, the universe has net zero gravity, thus explaining the absurd ‘knife-edge coincidence’ of its observed flatness, and suggesting that there is no titanic struggle between gravity and dark energy (prompting the second death of the cosmological constant). Instead it is the perfectly balanced gravitational relationship between the twin demispheres which results in 'negative pressure', which is not an ‘energy of the vacuum’ but the gravitational influence of the northern demisphere (in keeping with GR) which increases from zero with distance from the observer.
However, perhaps the most significant aspect of this whole scenario lies in the relationship of Centre A/B recession to Special Relativity, and the Centre B/B ‘information lag’ to General Relativity, linking lightspeed to gravity, and also, it would appear, inertial and gravitational mass.
The section concludes with a hypothetical look at a pre-Big Bang scenario based on the ‘magic treadmill’ of time as means of change and phase changes suggested by Flatland dimensional principles, ending on a brief and speculative comparison of the universe’s origin with the text of Genesis, Chapter 1.
