The Persistent Universe

The Persistent Universe hypothesis splits the universe into two fundamental halves, expansion waves, and contraction waves. Contraction waves manifest in matter, and expansion waves manifest in the space between matter. That’s all there is to the universe, fundamentally speaking, but from there, complexity increases exponentially.

Contraction waves are akin to one of those vortex games, where you drop a coin into the vortex and it slowly increases its speed as it rolls inward and around the vortex in smaller rotations. We get a gain in energy and shorter frequencies with each rotation. Think of it like ripples in a pond visually, only inverted, so the ripples move inward. The rate of increases is C²m/s².

This is where the illusions of substance is realized, because matter is moving directly inward and way from each other. This is also *why we see gaps between matter when we zoom in on the quantum level. All the forces we observe, like the nuclear weak, and nuclear strong, etc, are caused by the trailing waves moving inward. At the same time the process would be causing expansion waves as it wiggles and moved, or back-flow.

The expansion waves are unified into a singular state, where the contraction waves are evenly dispersed throughout it. The expansion wave is what sets up our 3D structure for the contraction waves to move around within it freely.

Imagine the expansion wave exactly opposite the contraction wave, where the coin moves up the vortex, becoming slower with longer frequencies.

There is no substance to the universe, only waves in space. Space is the only thing that physically exists. Everything else is the motion of waves.

What I like about this model is that it explains everything in plain English. Motion is never created, rather, transformative. The more at rest something appears the more inward it is traveling. Motion itself is inherent in the process. Matter is in motion. There is no “at rest” mass per se.

This also explains the nature of C. The speed of light is the neutral point between decelerating expansion waves and accelerating contraction waves. It is the middle C note of the universe, but only constant in our perception. Matter cannot exceed C because…
