Well... if Burkhardt Heim(and for that matter, Dr. Hannes Alfven)  were still alive, this would be an "I told you so" moment for him:

The universe may have been born spinning, according to new findings on the symmetry of the cosmos

For those who don't know the name, Burkhardt Heim was a German theoretical physicist of rather extraordinary brain power, for he was both blind and deaf, and was missing both hands, due to an accident he suffered during World War Two working for the Nazis on....well, on something, we don't know exactly what.

Heim's chief claim to fame rests in a multi-dimensional "unified field theory" that, among other things, predicts coupling effects between electromagnetism and gravity - one of the holy grails of physics - and that the very fabric of space-time had a cellular and rotating structure, that is to say, space-time was quantized. I've long been intrigued with this idea, for it is a departure from the "continuum" model of the geometry of Einstein's General Relativity. "Continuum" is simply a kind of technical code word for a space-time that is infinitely divisible into ever smaller units without end. Quantization, on the other hand, implies that there is a minimum smallest possible unit of space-time, beyond which measurements collapse. It implies, in other words, that space-time is a kind of "crystal lattice."

Heim, like Dr. Nikolai Kozyrev in the Soviet Union, went one step further, and posited not only minimum cellular units of space-time, but also that these units had "rotation moments", i.e., were spinning. If this sounds like the old idea of an aether lumeniferous it isn't, for in that older model, the aether with simply an absolutely stationary backdrop in which all things moved. In the new model, the fabric of space-time itself is "rotating." And that raises a rather thorny question: rotating with respect to what?

One thing, however, that this newest discovery does do, is verify, in a very broad fashion, the idea that the lowly exponents of theories of torsion or torsion gravity have been advancing for decades, namely, that the fabric of space-time is itself a spiraling twist - shades of Dr. Kozyrev once again! - imparting a "directivity of time" and thus, that time itself was part of the geometry of physical forces.

This is, in short, an interesting development, and it will bear watching as scientists cope with how to put this data into their theories. See you on the flip side!

    W onder what new bomb shell going to blow up in the scientist faces next remember the sun in a red giant phase towards the of it’s life in the novel THE TIME MACHINE publish in 1898 wonder Wells got that idea at that time.

    Speaking of a different spinning universe–what to make of the latest Mumbai bombings? Another false flag that flew like a lead balloon. It appears like there was 1 hr of outrage on the net and then it quietly fell off. Are TPTB using the same old tricks but not getting the usual mileage out of them?

    ” And that raises a rather thorny question: rotating with respect to what?”

    Answer: Rotating with respect to the Earth, of course. Copernicus was wrong. The Earth is the center of the universe.

      Seriously though. A spinning universe has to have some frame of reference. Like consciousness with nothing to be conscious of, just “consciousness,” spinning without a frame of reference, “a few seconds ago it was pointed over there,” just “spinning,” is like a verb with no object, worse than a dangling participle.

    I was watching the latest Star Trek movie and Spock is instructing the young Scotty about Scotty’s “theory” of transporting to a star ship while it is traveling at warp speed. Scotty makes a comment as he peruses the calculations that he never considered that space was moving. If this concept is in the movies one needs to ask where else is it being considered?

      And, as previously, moving with respect to what?

      As far as granularity goes, I remember the old channeled spook, Seth, saying that our attempts to “find” the elementary particle by increasingly high energy levels of bombardment would prove futile – all we were doing was creating “phantom” particles which were artifacts of the collision, and not natural things.

        That’s the ether moves relative to–simplistically put–densifications of itself. Think molten lava moving over a hardened lava field–except with slippery extra dimensional math defining that solidity. Reverse that math and you powderize so part of that solidity.

      So long as the world is (run) the way it is,
      you are always going to get more truth in fiction
      than supposed reality on MSM (MainStreamMedia)
      even though the ‘fiction’ is usually reality by many years.

      It’s no coincidence that the best SciFi writers have usually been scientists.
      But so much is known as true now (highest classification—
      shoot on sight thing) and used by the Elite that control it and
      the scientists, the independents that ‘stumble’ onto truth, are a
      literally dying breed.
      THEY don’t even bother much witrh setups anymore and just
      murder them.
      That’s why there is no more scifi and just mostly horror,
      because it’s too true and NOT fiction.
      Lots of truth in that old fashioned fiction, though.
      Keep watching and reading. See if you can pick out any truth
      or good probabilities.
      THEY are holding back info on the Sun’s activity;
      not really so quiet!
