Our Dancing Universe: the Word and the Circle of Light.

The Word lets light and begets all things.

I have composed the following in awe of the beauty and balance of our cosmos. It is based off of concepts connected by three pieces of scientific literature. The summary of each is as follows:

1. "A unifying theory of dark energy and dark matter: Negative masses and matter creation within a modified ΛCDM framework" describes how the existence of a negative mass fluid would result in the orientation and behavior of the cosmos as we observe it, removing the need for the hypothetical notions of dark matter and dark energy to describe the shapes of galaxies and the observed expansion of space-time.

2. "Negative-Mass Hydrodynamics in a Spin-Orbit–Coupled Bose-Einstein Condensate" describes how when matter gets extremely cold, approximately absolute zero, atoms condense into a collective fluid that behaves as if it has negative mass.

3. "On the origin of gravity and the laws of Newton" describes how gravity itself is not actually a fundamental force, but an emergent phenomena from the impact of entropy acting on the information-energy of the universe. Entropy is responsible for the effective forces of gravitational attraction, as well as capable of explaining microscopic inertia. In the framework of general relativity, this means it is possible for the translation of energy into space-time itself in a holographic universe. This can be understood as a continuous fabric of space time projecting outward from black holes.

Why are these three papers in combination so intriguing to me? They provide a framework to see how energy is continually transforming into light, matter, and space-time. This is my attempt to describe a conception of that framework.

At the "points" with the highest concentrations of mass-energy in the universe, we have black-holes. They are absorbing everything (matter, light, and space-time) into them while releasing energy as they evaporate due to Hawking radiation. These are the surfaces from which our space-time projects in the holographic sense. At the lowest energy "edges" of the universe, furthest from high concentrations of matter, the matter is so cold, it behaves as a continuous fluid that can be conceptualized as a Newtonian negative mass. This extremal matter simultaneously squeezes the warmer matter clustered in galaxies together (acting like dark matter) and repulses itself, and expanding outward continuously into a larger volume due to an entropy gradient toward some some virtually infinite maximum volume (acting like dark energy). Because it is so cold, the entropy at these outermost "edges" approaches a constant value, akin to emptiness, formless and void.

Meanwhile, the entropy within this expanding fabric of space-time (as it appears from our point of observation) acts upon matter in a way that draws it toward itself, resulting in the effective gravitational force with which we are familiar. This force is responsible for the fusion in stars which produces light (and eventually black-holes in the cases of the most massive stars). This light always shines toward the "edges" of space-time, continually experiencing red-shift along the way as the space-time through which it travels expands. Along the way, it experiences convex gravitational lenses, curving toward massive objects as it travels past them, but eventually this light interacts with the coldest, "negative mass" matter and begins to bend away from the void, as it acts as a concave gravitational lens. This bending of light provides an infinite path for light to swirl throughout the universe, red-shifting into ever increasing wavelengths, until its absorbed by some form of matter, be it cosmic dust, salt-water, or a black-hole. This is also consistent with observations that the Universe appears to be "open" in shape. I posit that the observed red-shifting of the light is the observation of the once mass-energy transformed into greater entropy, as it continually condenses back into matter in the form of the collective Bose-Einstein condensate. This produces the effective expansion of the universe and space-time itself. I will call this path it takes, transforming from matter to light and back to matter again the Circle of Light.

So what does this mean? It means everything is continuously transforming into everything else according to the laws of thermodynamics: 1) energy-information is conserved by perpetually transforming mass-energy into 2) ever increasing entropy in the volume highly populated by mass-energy in the interior of the universe while 3) never exceeding the maximum possible entropy that is defined by all of the mass-energy expanding to a volume where its temperature approaches absolute zero. This framework for the universe seems most compatible with the Big Bounce theory of a perpetually vibrating universe, immeasurable in age with a beginning beyond the perceivable.

Thus, our universe is a beautiful mess of information dancing.

Word to your Origin.

An Unapologetic Paraphrasing of Bastiat's Apology for Landed Property

This is my admittedly snarky paraphrasing of Bastiat's rambling apology on Landed Property in his Economic Harmonies . I think by translating the verbiage into modern terms, which I couldn't help but do so with a pinch of sarcasm, it becomes clear he didn't prove much of anything at all. Instead, a reader feels underwhelmed by its points and overwhelmed by the verbosity of his rather banal parables. Even though he shows what actually causes land to increase in value when he describes the improvements of a city/town growing around land, he insists that all the gained value obtained by landlords by that mechanism is actually just the fruits of their past labors, ignoring his own supposition that value comes from the service provided, in the case of Land, by a better site to occupy, not labor. If it pleases you, enjoy the following: The economists of all sorts say that landlord's charge rent for value they did not create. Most say it is unjust, but some begrudgingly ad

Free Land, or the ideal mean for a Location Value funded Citizen's Dividend

If we want to liberate ourselves from one another, we can buy into the idea that we can more effectively share this planet. We can do so for the purposes of maximizing human autonomy and the experience of equal liberty for every citizen of the Earth, through each of their local communities. We have the means today to voluntarily buy into a federation of neighborhood scale land trusts with a global reach. Existentially, our birthrights are the greatest lottery of all of history. We can make that a game with winning odds for everyone. The desire to be free, to choose to live how we each wish to live, is strongly felt within each of us. But those who experience it most, unfortunately, value it least. They become so accustomed to protecting or jealously expanding their own experience of it that they have created a system of enforcing their own privileges at the cost of others. I believe all people ought to choose whosoever's service they wish to enter, but I do not believe any of
