Physicists claim that the universe is a ball of galaxies that exploded from a single point in space with a Big Bang. In the twentieth century they hooked a super computer up to a super telescope and made a super map of the entire universe. The data is available to anyone but the picture that has been painted by this information isn't really being seen, we're staring at the back of the canvas because that's the side physicists are presenting. I would like to take the opportunity to turn it around for a moment so you may see it in a new light. From any given point inside a spherical object it's possible to determine the exact location of the center of the sphere if you have the ability to measure the distance to any other point. You simply find the longest line that can be drawn from your initial point and then subtract the radius of the sphere from the far end of the line. You're left with a shorter line that ends at the center of the sphere. Physicists have spent countless hours on the W5 questions regarding the Big Bang with the exception of 'where'. Obviously it happened at the center of the universe but where exactly is that, relative to where you're sitting at this moment? From Earth, it's the exact same distance to the edge of the universe no matter which direction you point your telescope, there is no longest line. Can you see the picture now? The fact that the Earth sits as a monument at 'ground zero' for the Big Bang might seem a little puzzling if you're reading this in an era when gravity still exists. It's easier to understand our place in the universe if you can deal with the idea that Einstein was wrong about light being able to travel forever at a constant speed. Light is not infinite as Albert suggested and has limitations. Electromagnetic radiation may leave the sun as gamma rays but only travel a short distance before fading and ceasing to exist but this doesn't mean that the radiation stops at that point. It continues on but is too weak to be classified as gamma rays. We understand this deterioration and limitation regarding electromagnetic radiation but because of Einstein we think that light acts differently and continues forever. If light could only travel 100 million light years in the visible spectrum, we would appear to be at the center of a round universe with a diameter of 200 million light years. The light from galaxies beyond this illusionary universe wouldn't reach the Earth and only radio waves would come from the deep blackness of space. And the light from the visible galaxies farthest from us would be weakened and create a Doppler type effect giving the impression that these galaxies were moving away from us. What would the universe look like if electromagnetic radiation could only travel as light for 15 billion light years? Where would the Earth appear to be in such a universe?
