I wrote this a couple of years ago, in the midst a drug-induced psychedelic experience. I then forgot all about it, until discovering it again today. I started reading it, expecting it to be a load of embarrassing garbage, but to my surprise, whilst it is still garbage for the most part, it isn't as embarrassing as I thought it'd be. Bits of it are quite thought-provoking, in a hippy-dippy kind of way, though the Science-based parts are pretty silly, but what can I say, I was prettyabsurdifiedat the time. Anyway, I thought I'd post it here,just in case.

What Is The Universe?

The Universe is, by definition, all that exists. The Universe is Everything.

Why does Everything exist? Why does Anything exist?

Logical intuition suggests the following:

Whatever Everything is, its existence must have been inevitable, for if Everything is all that there is, then there could have been no other variables that might have prevented Everything from existing. Furthermore, given that the only conceivable alternative to Everything was Nothing, it therefore follows that the existence of Nothing was impossible, due to Everything having been inevitable. Thus, there is no such phenomenon as Nothing. Therefore, Nothing can be eliminated from further consideration, as Nothing was never an option to begin with. Nothing never existed, nor could Nothing have ever existed.

Un = Ev - No ...thus... Ev = No + Un

The Universe therefore existsEx Nihilo.

But, what is the Universe? What is Everything?

Metaphysical Speculation

There is no such phenomenon as Spacetime, there is only Space.

Space has four dimensions: Length, Width, Height and Tempus.

Time is an emergent artifact of Tempus.

The relatively simplistic structure of the brain renders animal life incapable of perceiving the dimensions of space in their entirety. Length, Width and Height can be perceived reasonably well, due in part to perceived volition within these three dimensions. Lacking however is the ability to perceive anything more than a cross-section of Tempus (which we refer to as the Present), due to the structure of the brain being conducive to an absence of perceived volition within this dimension, likely as a consequence of the entropic nature of memory, wherein which any given cross-section can be derived from a previous cross-section in only one direction along the axis of Tempus. The perceived arrow of Time, as well as the perceived flow of Time necessarily follows.

The fabric of Spacetime is a mathematical abstraction, derived in order to represent the boundary that separates what the brain can and cannot perceive of the Tempus dimension. The fabric of Spacetime is not a physical phenomenon, it is an abstract construct.

Since the fabric of Spacetime is not a physical phenomenon, it therefore follows that the fabric of Spacetime cannot be curved in the presence of Mass. There is no existing physical phenomenon that can be curved in the presence of Mass. By extension of the fact that the fabric of Spacetime is a mathematical abstraction, the apparent curvature of the fabric of Spacetime in the presence of Mass must also be an abstract construct.

A possible explanation of the apparent curvature of the fabric of Spacetime in the presence of Mass can perhaps be found by examining the relationship between Mass and Velocity more closely. Since the Tempus axis is oriented perpendicular to the three non-Tempus dimensions, accelerated Velocity in any of the three non-Tempus dimensions results in an equivalent negative accelerated Velocity in the Tempus dimension. Thus, since Inertial Mass increases with accelerating Velocity in any of the three non-Tempus dimensions, it therefore follows that negative accelerated Velocity in the Tempus dimension is equivalent to an increase in Inertial Mass.

From this it can be deduced that the greater an object's Mass, the slower the object's Velocity in the Tempus dimension. Thus, the apparent curving of the fabric of Spacetime in the presence of Mass is in fact the slowing of the Velocity of Mass in the Tempus dimension. Therefore, the Gravitational Field of a Massive object is not the result of the object warping the fabric of Spacetime. Rather, it is an artifact of the Massive object's decreased Velocity in the Tempus dimension. Massive objects do not warp the fabric of Spacetime, producing a Gravitational Field, nor does a Gravitational Field decrease a Massive object's velocity in the Tempus dimension. Rather, Gravity is the decrease in Velocity of Massive objects in the Tempus dimension.

G = S - T ...thus... S = G + T

From this it can be inferred that as an object passes through a Gravitational Field, its Mass is increased, its Velocity in the Tempus dimension is decreased and its Velocity in one or more of the three non-Tempus dimensions is increased. This increase in Velocity is the explanation for the apparent acceleration that an object undergoes in a Gravitational Field. Thus, the apparent alteration of an object's Spatial trajectory in the presence of a Gravitational Field is an artifact of the object's decreased Velocity in the Tempus dimension. Therefore, the apparent pull of Gravity is in fact the increase in Velocity in the non-Tempus dimension, itself a consequence of decreased Velocity in the Tempus dimension. Gravity is an artifact of an object's changing dimensional orientation.

A Universe with three non-Tempus dimensions and no Tempus dimension would contain only Gravity, and would thus be a Gravitational Singularity. Likewise, a Universe with a Tempus dimension and no non-Tempus dimensions would be devoid of Gravity, and would thus contain no Mass; it would comprise only Energy, stretched in one direction along the Tempus dimension.

Since the Universe is effectively the sum of these two possible Universes, it therefore follows that the Universe is a dual structure, comprising:

A) A Timeless Gravitational Singularity of infinite Mass, compressed within a point of Minimum Entropy.

B) A single dimension of Energy, stretched out into a line of infinite Length and Maximum Entropy.

Together, these two aspects of the Universe cancel out, leaving behind Zero Energy and Zero Mass, and thus, Nothing.

Conclusion

Ev = No ...thus... Un = Ev No

The Universe is Everything multiplied by Nothing.
