What Does the Universe Look Like

What Does the Universe Look Like

   What does the universe look like with our eyes and with the largest most powerful telescope? The universe looks like a bubble of energy inside the infinite source of energy that religions call God and Science calls infinity. Infinity is unimaginable but look at this mental picture. Imagine the sun as being infinite and a small solar sunspot represents our universe. However, infinity is unimaginable and much greater than we can imagine. There is nothing beyond the source of infinity.

The Cosmic Background Radiation (CMB)

In cosmology, the cosmic microwave background radiation is a form of electromagnetic radiation discovered in 1965 that fills the entire universe. 

It has a thermal temperature of 2.725 degrees-kelvin black body spectrum which peaks in the microwave range frequency of 160.4 GHz, corresponding to a wavelength of 1.9 mm. 

The accepted understanding is that it’s a relic of the Big Bang inflationary reaction and that it shows what the energy in the universe was like 380,000 years after the Big bang event. 

But maybe there’s another explanation that makes even more sense? 

Suppose that the CMB is the energy of space itself. Namely, that space is a container or an energy field in which the universe lives. 

If you take everything out of the universe it still has the energy of 2.725 degrees kelvin. 

Most scientists agree that the Big Bang event wasn’t an explosion. It was more like a motion of energy (inflation) moving into (a container of) space. 

The Dimensions of the Universe 

My theory of the universe looks like it lives inside of a container. The energy and matter in the universe are inside of a container that consists of energy levels. 

Imagine a balloon that has another balloon inside it and another balloon, etcetera so that when energy expands from the inside balloon it expands into the next bigger balloon.

The motion during the creation of the universe stopped in the 3rd dimension where life evolved. 

Currently, the universe is expanding and accelerating its expansion.

I think that Black holes are converting energy into higher frequencies (dark matter) and moving matter into higher energy levels (dark energy). 

I used to call these energy levels dimensions but that made it difficult to imagine how the 3-spatial dimensions moved into higher dimensions.

There are only 3-spatial dimensions in the universe so it makes more sense to name different areas of the universe as different energy levels and not dimensions. 

At first, the 3-spatial dimensions exist in the lowest energy level called the 3rd dimension.

Then the next energy level is in the 4th dimension that has 3-spatial dimensions and then the 5th dimension energy level and so on. (time isn’t a dimension)

Moving energy into higher frequencies will cause matter to become invisible and non-physical as it moves into the 7th energy level (dimension) and beyond. 

Nothingness of Space 

A common misconception is that space is nothingness. But space must be real for it to have energy and to have the universe in it. 

How can the universe expand into more space? What’s outside of the universe? If space is a real thing what makes more space appear from nothing? 

I believe that the universe is expanding into itself. The container of the universe is already there with the extra energy levels of space. 

I know that most people have a problem thinking about how can the universe expand into a greater space. What’s outside of the universe and does it have a boundary? 

I used to think that there must be some kind of space outside of the universe that the universe expands into. 

But if that extra space is there then it’s already part of the universe. 

If there is only the darkness of nothingness beyond the universe that’s a problem because nothingness doesn’t exist. 

Nothing in mathematics means zero. But it’s an imaginary number and in this case, it means you can’t have a zero amount of something that doesn’t exist. 

I can’t imagine a nothingness or an infinite amount of something. These are imaginary amounts that can’t be imagined. 

If nothingness isn’t real then what about the idea of infinity? is infinity real? 

The Infinity of the Universe 

I postulate that everything is part of infinity because the opposite of infinity is nothingness that doesn’t exist. 

The universe we know isn’t in a space surrounded by nothing it’s inside the infinite source of energy that religions call God.  

Everything that exists is attached to this infinity. The outside boundary of the universe is the infinite source of energy that created the universe. 

Thus the universe is a small temporary physical body inside infinite energy we call Infinity. 

This timeless all powerful all knowing energy surrounds our universe and maintains the energy of life and nature that allows the physical universe to exist. 

If this source of energy is disconnected from the universe it will cease to exist. 

Consciousness in the Universe 

Consciousness is the power that gives us our mental body and it allows us to know that we have a mind that feels separate from the brain in the physical body. 

We have free will to do whatever we want but it comes with karma and the consciousness that lets us know if we are doing the right thing. 

If you do the wrong thing it bites you back later. Sometimes the memory of doing the wrong thing lasts a lifetime and never lets you forget. 

Most people don’t recognize the difference between consciousness and being aware that we have consciousness.

This idea is difficult to talk about and even more difficult to understand. 

The Chinese Room - Turing Test

The Chinese room is a philosophical mental experiment about consciousness. 

Suppose there is a room with a computer that only accepts Chinese symbols and it replies in the same Chinese characters. 

Then a Chinese person communicates with the computer but without knowing that the conversation is with a machine. 

The person becomes convinced that a person is answering the questions in their conversation.

But we have to wonder if the machine understands Chinese and knows what it’s like to be a Chinese person or is it only replying because of its expert programming? 

And on a much deeper level does the machine know it’s a machine?

I think it’s obvious that the machine doesn’t have consciousness. Can artificial intelligence (AI) ever have consciousness?

Where does consciousness come from and what happens if we lose our consciousness?

Does the universe have consciousness or is the universe more like a machine, I mean like a thing or more like a mind? 

I know that’s a very big question! The question is does the universe make up its laws of physics and then matter evolves into life? I hope not! 

The laws of physics were used to create the universe, not the other way around.

Matter such as a machine can’t have consciousness or a mental mind.

Matter never creates life it’s the mind that creates everything. 

Before you can have anything you need to have a mind that wants it, a mind that dreams it, and then it uses the energy and matter to create what is imagined.

A mind was present before the creation of the universe and part of that mind is living inside its creation. 

How Old is Your Soul? 

We have 4 different bodies. The physical body, the mental body, the emotional body, and the spiritual body.

Where do you think your small soul lives? Where does the big Soul of the universe live?

Your small soul lives in your spiritual body, specifically in the endocrine system. But the soul didn’t always live in physical beings. 

Our soul spark enters the body during birth and leaves during our death. This energy isn’t in the DNA of our cells.

Your Big Soul lives in the infinite energy we call God and the Soul of the universe lives there as well. 

When the universe ends we will go back to the real energy that is our true self. 

Don’t worry how long that takes because time doesn’t exist for a soul in the same way that time doesn’t exist in infinity. Time is eternal inside infinity.

I think the universe looks like a temporary schoolhouse for souls to experience being in a physical body to evolve consciousness and love. 

At least that’s my take on life, what’s yours?
