    As some of you know, Gard Jameson and Ralph Zehr have organized “science symposium 3” for June 2-5 in Chicago this year.  I’ve used this deadline as motivation to bring together the missing Part 4 of this video series. Parts 1-3 covered the more personal aspects of the UB revelation;  Part 4 will be a fresh look at things cosmological, from a 21st century perspective.

    Regarding plans for June 3 in Chicago, due to time constraints, I plan to cover just the middle section, on “Mass, Matter and Dark Islands that go Boom“.  Given the author’s statement in paper 101 section 4:

    “within a few short years many of our statements regarding the physical sciences will stand in need of revision” (1109.3, 101:4.2)

    and since I’m keen to get on with this revision, I’ve titled my presentation “Revisionist Cosmology”  :-)

    Here are links to current versions of the 3 parts:

    [Video4 A:] Intro (1 of 3) (1.6 MB)

    [Video4 B:] MassMatters (2 of 3) (5.1 MB)

    [Video4 C:] Orvonton (3 of 3) (4.4 MB)

    If anyone has the time and interest to help clean up these early drafts, that would be great!

    Updated version for Chicago presentation (June 3):  MassMatters v2 (5.3 MB)

    Once again, I’d love any feedback or criticism on content, sequence, assumptions, etc.

    For reference, here are the three parts I plan to combine as 45 minute movie:

    [Video4 A:] Intro (1 of 3) (1.6 MB)

    [Video4 B:] MassMatters v2 (2 of 3) (5.3 MB)

    [Video4 C:] Orvonton (3 of 3) (4.4 MB)

    Hi Nigel,

    This looks brilliant. I’ll need time to have an good read to digest it all but if your past videos are anything to go by, I know this will be a masterpiece.

    You are a true teacher of the teachings and I urge everyone to take a good look at your work.

    I wish you all the best for your trip and presentation.

    Cheers,
    Kathleen

    Hi All — here’s the final version of my script for next weekend’s science symposium at the Foundation:

    [Video4 B:] MassMatters (2 of 3) (4.7 MB)

    Next hurdle will be getting the hi-res 1080p video to play. Seems like we were supposed to “bring our own device”, but my compute.node requires 3 strong men to lift  :-(

    Once again, the current set of three parts:

    [Video4 A:] Intro (1 of 3) (1.6 MB)

    [Video4 B:] MassMatters (2 of 3) (4.7 MB)

    [Video4 C:] Orvonton (3 of 3) (4.4 MB)

    Update on project:

    To simplify recording, I’ve split my work into 4 bite-sized sections.  The first part continues the sequence of these three previous videos, and breaks-the-ice with regard to some fundamentals of UB physics.  Part 2 sets up an ultimatonic model for matter.  Part 3 describes what ultimatons imply for matter that collapses behind an event horizon (dark islands).  Part 4 will explore what these new foundations may mean for the Milky Way.

    Please note that all this work concerns physics local to our sector of Orvonton. Regarding the global cosmology of the master universe, I’m thrilled that George and others are attempting to map the large-scale structure. Their work will get an enormous boost with the next generation of space and ground-based telescopes.

    Regarding my own work, a central idea is that the mechanics of quantum fields is really the mechanics of segregata and ultimata. Thus our evolving quantum field theories really only apply within those islands of space where segregata and ultimata have been evolved (i.e. galaxies). This gets interesting when we consider what happens to photons when they cross the deep between galactic halos. The UB claims that when moving within a field of (active and primordial) segregata, photons wiggle. But when moving between these islands of pure energy, they lose this wave-like attribute.

    Is it reasonable to speculate that each time a photon suffers such a change-of-state (i.e. passing through multiple galactic halos on its way to our telescopes) its apparent wavelength will be “shifted toward the red”?

    If anyone has time to look through one or all, I’d be very thankful for comments and criticism!

    — Update, 22 September 2018 —

    Hi all, pleased to report some progress! The following set of scripts and YouTube videos attempt to set up a framework in which to explore the idea of ultimatons in physics.

    The idea is to describe (predict) ultimatonic foundations, sufficient to explain current standard models in both cosmology and particle physics.

    Here are links to the YouTube videos:

    Videos:
    Part 4A – Foundations (v2)
    Part 4B1 – Mass and Matter (part 1)
    Part 4B2 – Mass and Matter (part 2)
    Part 4C – Exploding Dark Islands (v2)

    Playlist: Urantia Book Cosmology

    For reference, and to make it easier to discuss particular issues, the following PDF versions (used as scripts for the videos) contain exactly the same text/narration as the videos, together with corresponding pics:

    Scripts:
    Part 4 A: Foundations (PDF)
    Part 4 B: Mass and Matter (PDF)
    Part 4 C: Exploding Dark Islands (PDF)

    In the upcoming “Part 4 D”, I’ll attempt to bring together some of the threads left dangling in the above.

    PS: The above cosmological speculation (i.e. Part 4 in the video series) follows on from Parts 1, 2 and 3 (links below). These first three parts explore the more personal side of the 5th epochal revelation:

    Videos:
    Part 1 – Universe Frames (v3)
    Part 2 – the Personal Universe (v3)
    Part 3 – a Family Affair (v3)

    Playlist: The Urantia Book and Personality

    Scripts:
    P1: Universe Frames (PDF)
    P2: the Personal Universe (PDF)
    P3: a Family Affair (PDF)

    PS: when combined as chapters and printed in full color, the above set of 6 PDF scripts make quite a book!

    Notes:

    Regarding possible connections between ultimatons and current scientific work, the idea of “ghostly axions” — appearing mysteriously within a primordial condensate of charge — is becoming a favored contender for explaining two types of invisible mass that seem to be shaping (a) galaxies and (b) large scale structure.

    And in his 2005 book, “A Different Universe: Reinventing Physics from the Bottom Down”, Robert Laughlin (Nobel/Physics 1998) hinted that electrons might emerge from “hundreds of such little ghosts, linking arms”, where these little ghosts would be “axions“. Laughlin (and others) seem to be one small step from the Urantia Book idea: that the quantized complexity of fermion properties might emerge from “clusters of clusters of huddling ultimatons.

    Using current terminology, we might think of ultimatons as axionic preons.

    Given the preliminary stage of this work, I can easily adjust stuff. So if anyone has ideas on what to change, improve or delete, or just general criticism, please let me know!

    with thanks,

    Nigel

    Hi All,

    Given my speculation last year about the formation and explosion of dark islands (YouTube, v2, 2017), I’m wondering if that astronomical “holy cow” event of June 16 this year will require a UB perspective? Do cooling and contracting dead stars really have a “limiting and critical explosion point” (41:3.6) ?

    [wikipedia]: AT2018cow

    [pop. sci]: “I’ve never seen anything like this“.

    From [paper] arxiv.org 1808.00969,

    “[…] In either case, AT 2018cow suggests that the population of fast luminous transients represents a new class of astrophysical event. Intensive follow-up of this event in its late phases, and of any future events found at comparable distance, will be essential to better constrain their origins.”

    From UB 41:3.6:

    “This process of cooling and contraction may continue to the limiting and critical explosion point of ultimatonic condensation.” (458.6, 41:3.6)

    PS: Next and final video in the series (cosmology, part 4D) shaping up well!

    warm regards and love to all,

    Nigel

    If it was unlike a supernova, but they want to think that it was one.

    The unusual event has offered an unprecedented window on to the collapse of a star, two teams of researchers suggest in papers submitted to the arXiv preprint server on 25 October.

    Contrary to the slow ramp-up of a typical supernova, Cow became stupendously bright essentially overnight, leaving astronomers perplexed.

    “It popped up out of nowhere,” says Stephen Smartt, an astronomer at Queen’s University Belfast, UK, who first discovered the explosion, and who named it according to an alphabetical protocol that just happened to spell out the word ‘cow’.

    So, what was it?

    Is there a supermassive black hole in the center of this galaxy (Orvonton / Milky Way), or is it something else?

    Hi rock,

    Given the role of the two orders of Force Organizers, we might model the Sgr A* anomaly not as mere accumulation of collapsed mass, but as actualized absonite anchor?  From 42:2.3:

    “[…], while the intension of this concept implies the totality of cosmic reality — universes — which emanated eternitywise […]” (42:2.3)

    See also transcendental causation (42:2.8) :

    “Passive and potential force becomes active and primordial in response to the resistance afforded by the space presence of the Primary Eventuated Master Force Organizers. Force is now emerging from the exclusive domain of the Unqualified Absolute into the realms of multiple response — response to certain primal motions initiated by the God of Action and thereupon to certain compensating motions emanating from the Universal Absolute. Primordial force is seemingly reactive to transcendental causation in proportion to absoluteness.” (42:2.8)

    I point to (then skip over) this at time 8:00 in this video.

    You can find this reference on page 13 of the script for the video here: part 4C, Exploding dark islands .

    From page 13 [quote]:

    Of course, these extra levels of support imply a range of sizes for these dark islands, from say 3 solar masses all the way up to some… unspecified limit. The point being that, in this model, there is some upper limit to their mass. In other words, these evolutionary, “solar mass” dark islands do not continue to merge and grow, to become those “supermassive” things that seem to anchor galaxies in space. Nevertheless, these ultra-compact objects are said to have some… very useful properties.

    If you’d like to help put these ideas into a mainstream astronomical context, here are links to a preliminary script for the final video in the series,

    Script for video 4D: part 1 – Orvonton
    Script for video 4D: part 2 – Issues

    I’d love some critique… What to fix?  What to add?  What to leave out?

    thanks!

    Nigel
