The Inevitable Evolution

Science Fiction authors and artists are some of the most early adopters of new concepts, even those like Elegant Reasonism that tends to give people headaches. This article is for you. The intent here is to give you a heads up about the unified Universe different from the traditional perceptions. What will be the sources of drama and strife that perhaps is not visible to the average folk.

The Severance Envelope

The Severance Envelope is essentially described everything which may provide traction for theoretical managed severance field drives. A planetary system is such an envelope as might be everything inside a heliopause. Something similar is likely around galaxies. The existence of such an envelope however, raises the question ‘what is outside of that envelope’, and the answer to that is dimensionless nothing – and therein lay potential drama of all sorts. Lose the envelope and you lose all traction. Reaction engines, and their fuel, have to be enough to overcome high rapidity attainable through managed Severance fields. This same issue also means advanced navigation systems have to be able to be right the first time. Miss the destination and you are on that vector until another destination becomes available. No matter how many eons may pass in the interim.

“The” or “Our” unified Universe

Good question. Mode shifting the M1 instance of the Big Bang into congruence with M5 yields the Bang to Bang perspective. The implication then is the existence of an unknowable vastness beyond our particle horizon containing an equally unknowable number of other ‘universes’. Every single one of these could be described in a single Event Frame, presuming anyone knew how big to make it. Philosophers will likely scratch their heads on that for a long time. We have no clue how old all that is. The only hope we have is figuring out when our little part of it ‘banged’ because that part is inside our particle horizon. ‘Our’ part of the unified Universe is bounded by our particle horizon. What we do not yet know is whether everything created during ‘our bang’ is inside or does it span our particle horizon. Are there some parts of ‘our bang’ that lay beyond that horizon? We may never know.


Fukang Pallasite Meteorite

Catastrophic stellar Events scatter materials back into the cosmos and while it includes ‘dust’ it also includes considerable ‘debris’ and those materials could be planet sized chunks. Blazars, for example, eject at high rapidity Jupiter sized objects frequently. Rapidity here refers to the ejecta velocity and not the frequency with which they emerge. The term rapidity is also mode shifted, so if you are not familiar with that shift in thinking you have work to do.

The sectioned pallasite meteorite we would argue is exactly the type of ejecta we are talking about. If you were going fast you would not want to run into this thing. There are a number of paradigms which must be mode shifted in order to understand the implications here. Standard thinking for the formation of our solar system is that it formed from gas and dust. Hogwash. It formed from ejecta materials exactly like this and those similarly produced. One of the associated paradigms needing shifting is the ejecta speed issue. They really are not fast, relativistically speaking. Several many tens of thousands of kph, but generally not high relativistic speeds. Why is that an issue. Well, it is because see that guy holding that pallasite here? That he is holding it – is the issue. It got here for him to hold. Bring up a map of how far away supernova events are. Look at those speeds, then do the math. Doesn’t seem very plausible that he could hold a piece of a supernova does it. So, there’s a catch right? Yep, sure, you betcha there is. Two immediate things happen we mode shift how we perceive the unified Universe using say, the WMAP data for example. Our portion of the unified Universe gets staggeringly larger and potentially at least an order of magnitude older. Suddenly, without much complications there is plenty of time for that pallasite to go from where it was formed to that guy holding it in his hands.

Ok that object the guy is holding is called a pallasite meteorite, but what is that exactly? Well the metal parts are an iron-nickel matrix and the translucent materials are olivine. Olivine is a magnesium-iron silicate mineral with the chemical formula (Mg2+, Fe2+)2SiO4. Ok great but how do you know this came from a supernova?  The answer lay in the stellar nucleosynthesis layering immediately prior to, during and after the supernova event. When we look at the rebounding materials synthesized in these processes what we find are those components pushing through one another on their way out of the system and forming these objects. Natural chemistry takes place forming the olivine and mechanical penetration does the rest. When the object cools you now have a pallasite hurtling through space on some vector. The mode shifted perspective then provides the necessary traversal times between where they were formed and their ultimate locations. Under M5 the age of the unified Universe grows ancient relative to currently accepted numbers and there is plenty of time for that object to have traveled from source to target (e.g. here). Mystery solved in one sense, but in another sense opens up avenues for intervening drama if you happen to be in a vehicle attempting to traverse interstellar space. Then you are going to have issues. Major issues.

When you go outside at night and look up on a clear night. You see stars, right? How come the thousands upon thousands of satellites launched by humanity since the 1950’s don’t get in the way of your view? The answer to that question is the same reason all that material from all those supernova also do not get in the way. Space is vast. More vast than the interference objects. But neither can we pretend those objects are not there, nor can we deny from whence they came.

Interstellar Travel

You may want to review In Unification’s Wake, Part 01: Stereotypical Questions before continuing. There are many traditional concepts which are simply no longer viable and which must be dispensed with. Other presentations here also may help. Any interstellar travel will need to cope with issues and insights from the unified Universe and they are neither slight nor trivial. I will say, for the record, I grew up on staple science fiction. I can elaborate on the differences between hyperspace and warp drive. Unfortunately both require a belief in M1 being real not virtual. Reality, it seems, has a way of twisting your brain in ways no one ever anticipated. So here we are now armed with Elegant Reasonism. What does that tell us about such journeys? Are they now impossible? No, that is not what it tells us. Well it may suggest they are improbable, but not impossible. Ships would have to employ managed Severance drives. They would have to cope with intervening materials.  Interesting as those issues are they are not the most important aspect. The single most salient criteria is navigation. You see if you employ managed severance drives to gain high rapidity for your ships you must have some architectural mass against which to apply the fields employed by that drive system. That usually means a source solar system and a destination system. Anything in the way is something that those fields would have to contend with and some of those may be the size of Saturn and not having ignited into stardom yet would pose something of a problem for any craft.

We can not pretend those things do not exist (like most popular stories do), but I digress, the issue being navigation and all. If you miss the target system for any reason. Any reason at all, then there is no architectural mass for the systems to leverage in bringing your vehicle to a halt in any sort of stable orbit. It means you are trapped on your original or a modified vector until such time as there is some architectural mass that can be used for that purpose. You very well could spend eternity leap frogging around.

Leap Frogging

Some 70,000 years ago Scholz’s Star passed by the Sol System close enough that if it had a capable civilization, they could have navigated a base from that star to an orbit around our star. Some say but that star is not generally accepted as supporting life. I remind you that such a leap may not have been their first, and that any such base would be completely self-sustained. A star is expected to pass through the Oort cloud every 100,000 years or so. An approach as close or closer than 52,000 AU is expected to occur about every 9 million years. In about 1.4 million years, Gliese 710 will come to a perihelion of between 8,800 and 13,700 AU. All the giants, weird creatures, etc. from history may well have been them mucking around with the biology already here. However, they would have no need for conquest, nor all the drama exactly because they are already content on their base. Their mission would be to replicate their base. Demonstrate to the indigenous life a larger possibility and capability. Once indigenous life could travel from its original source to their base they would simply hand it over, move into the new base they had built, and leave as their mission would have then been accomplished. Essentially that is the plot of Majestic Feint, but the fun is in the journey not the destination.

“The” Unified Universe

‘The’ unified Universe is very likely much greater than all that exists within our particle horizon, even at exceptionally high rapidities. Questions remain, where did all that come from. Where do MBPs come from? Why are they not nothing? Status quo thinking would have us believe they are just energy, but then we remember that energy defined in that way is part of a system that is only logically correct and does not close to unification. When we mode shift that term we find it is simply an ability and in that context does not have the same connotation. When we look at structures like The Laniakea Supercluster we give pause to potential threads of structure which may asynchronously supply architectures needed for large scale communications and information transfer. Such capabilities may provide fodder for scale to scale communications never before fathomed.

“Our” Part of the unified Universe

Presuming the Bang to Bang insight is correct under M5 then the data we have from WMAP represents only that part of the unified Universe inside our particle horizon and that in no way represents the entirety of the unified Universe. It in fact may only represent the merest fraction. Despite the vastness that represents (relative to our minuscule perspective). See the entanglement gradient for scale.

High Rapidity Asynchronous Information Exchange (Signals)

MBPs are the smallest divisible particle by definition. They therefore have three states. No energy, energy which allows entanglement, and energy which exceeds Severance.  In that latter state such particles could travel at immense rapidities, but would also penetrate (e.g. cause severance to) any configuration they encounter. The receiving architectures may repair themselves with high rapidities which may indeed be superluminal. Such capabilities offer fertile fodder for the imaginative among us.

Drake, Fermi, and Dyson

It seems from the original systems review that life is common through out the unified Universe. Ironically the ‘image’ within which that life exists is that of the unified Universe and not some preconceived configuration. It also means we must integrate the issues discussed above. Life arising to sentience must pass Drake’s tests. Looking then at the Kepler data we find clues suggesting at least confirmation to the isotropic nature of life where it is possible for it to exist. Which then brings us to Fermi’s point: where is it then? Presuming for a minute it does exist as suggested that list from the Kepler probe becomes very interesting. There is a subset of that list which suggests systems consistent with what we might expect from a Dyson Sphere.

If civilizations mature, presumably employing what we now have at our disposal, and perhaps having been doing so for millions of years already, then they may have concluded they already exist on a spaceship. Their solar system and its planets are their ship. Their Dyson Sphere would have to accommodate star exchange perhaps so that it might endure stellar phase changes and ultimate death if their civilization is to endure. Such civilizations may recognize the issues raised with Bang to Bang insights and find a way to leverage that into endurance and persistence.

Information Is A Function of Architecture of Mass

Traditionalists struggle to explain the conservation of information in the unified Universe. Under The Emergence Model the core construct there is the Most Basic Particle or MBP. Key here in that construct is the intrinsic nature of the MBP, from which is derived the fundamental entanglement function, limited by severance generally construed to follow knot theory as a direct result of these factors. It is knot theory which provides the resultant ‘guidance’ on how the various configurations ultimately manifest the various architectures which everyone is familiar with. In a sense the conservation of information is a derivative of that same intrinsic nature. At that level however, the information is very basic and essentially only builds and fails (e.g. entangles and severs respectively). Complex information relationships are a function of the interactions spanning the entanglement gradient and driven by the various architectures, their respective entanglement saturation and density which in turn manifest physical properties. The Bang to Bang concepts cycle through these various stages and essentially replicate these same capabilities everywhere in the unified Universe. Not until we recognize that Severance is intrinsically derived will we recognize the frangibility of architectural mass. Gravitons are a low ordered construct here and essentially a constituent of all other configurations of complex composite architectures. Astronomically, stars collapse into neutron stars, then black holes. Interesting as black holes are, they really are no mystery here. They are essentially Graviton stars, and its pretty much just that simple. The functional action per unit area density is maximally saturated at the event horizon of a black hole. What that means is that it will eviscerate all other architectures and then consume (e.g. pull constituent MBPs below the event horizon) everything comprising that object. Somewhere in those contemplations we realize that structure equals properties and properties infer intrinsic structure, also means that if an architecture manifesting a particular property is eviscerated then so too is the property it made manifest. The question then arises as to what construct is formed below the event horizon and the answer we came to was Gravitons with perhaps with layers of Preons all just waiting for the next bang. That next bang will ultimately follow its intrinsic nature and configure those MBPs once more down their instinctive path.

Societies Within

Story plots within such systems abound. Whether it be long duration interstellar trips or within Dyson Spheres. Some stories have already been entertained, for example the Star Trek episode: For the World Is Hollow and I have Touched the Sky.

Low Action Endurance Systems

Included in such systems are hyper-sleep chambers for advanced beings that would enable persistence across vast amounts of time. However, the point is to be conscious or what’s the real point? Perhaps replicating one’s intellect into an AI system which would reintegrate on awakening? Perhaps to enter the cycle all over again, maybe with a newly repaired or enhanced body? Possibilities are endless here. Some not so entertaining.

Interactions Across Architectures

Many opportunities exist here from medical devices to inter-species interactions.

Mode Shifting

Newbies to all this should be forewarned that this is not a simple tweak to status quo thinking, it is a revolutionary tectonic shift and requires multiple modes of thinking in order to comprehend. In order to gain conversational skill effectiveness you will have to simultaneously recognize manifestation of any given paradigm in multiple contexts established by each EIM. That is to say any given paradigm will have its foundation established relative to and respective of the various EIMs employed by any given investigation. One of those EIMs must close to unification and if it does not – it is not consistent with unification under Elegant Reasonism Rules.

Congruence with a particular detail set within a given domain of discourse may be 100% logically correct (e.g. EIMs M1 & M2 for example), but if they do not nor can not close to unification then they must be considered ONLY logically correct. That is to day they are virtual representations of reality systems. While it is technically correct to say that M5 is a logical view it is important to remember that it is a logical view of M6 (which we do not yet have technology or experience enough to fully vet for measurement reasons).  Consequently we most often speak to M5 rather than M6. The Emergence Model is holistically represented by them both (e.g. M5 and M6 together). The former is the logical view of the later physical view. There are systems engineering reasons not to jump on to the physical view, even though that might be the first emotional area to seek. I would encourage everyone to go to M5, not M6 for these reasons.


The cogent description of M5 is characterized by two fundamental processes derived from the intrinsic nature of MBPs. A build process which configures MBPs into architectural mass and the failure mode of those configuration. We therefore then have: The Fundamental Entanglement Function, limited by Severance responsible for the configuration, behavior, interaction, properties, and phenomena we witness in reality. Photons are emitted from Electrons due to centripetal force exerted under these conditions within that Event Frame during EFPS1. Remembering that the constant ‘c’ mode shifts to mean Severance under M5 what we find is that Severance of the construct we call a photon always occurs such that the emitted construct always produces the same velocity. Consequently the constancy of the speed of light has more to do with the system producing it than any external dimensional limit. That’s why Hubble’s data gets reconciled against interferometer data. When we realize that MBPs configured by the Fundamental Entanglement Function, limited by Severance following their intrinsic nature inherently follow Knot Theory we suddenly are confronted with why string theory makes so much sense. Investigating constructs so configured we can easily recognize complex composite constructs which can not only produce organic systems (e.g. systems with high degrees of flexibility and mobility) but varying degrees of interaction which produce what we humans perceive as ‘normal’ matter and ‘dark’ matter. All matter is just that, normal configurations of MBPs. It’s just that some configurations are maxed out relative to and respective of their density and configuration saturation. Consequently their interaction with other configurations is different. That’s why we have those perceptions. It also immediately eliminates ‘dark energy’. There is no need for dark energy at all. All energy is the same. What changes is the architectures of mass manifesting matter that produces the different properties and phenomena.

All of this is both exciting and perhaps something of a simplification over what we have been conveying in many traditional stories.
