I was watching a video about the structure of the universe and they had some neat graphics showing a map of the universe and it's relation to this dark matter. Since most of the Cosmos is really far away causing our view of it to be old also, do they take this into account and correct for this when making a map of the universe? or does it not matter? Because a map of what the Universe looks like from our point of view is not what it truely looks like. a Galaxay 300,000,000ly away has traveled quite a distance and is no longer in the place where we see it. They said that when they made the map of the Cosmos they were showing that they did enter the information they knew about the galaxies shown. Such as redshift. It seems like it wouldn't take much to make a "current" picture of the Cosmos. Just have a program where you input all the known galaxies, thier velocity, direction of motion and distance from earth. Then you could have the program correct thier position for thier distance from earth(how long the light has been traveling to get here). Actually most of the information for a program like that sounds like it has allready been entered into that map that was shown on the video I saw. P.S. All the maps I have seen of the Cosmos though have looked almost exactly like pictures of neuron's and neural clusters I have also seen. the visual corelation between the 2 reminds me of mandelbrot sets or fractal paterns. Is the visual similarity between the large scale structure of the universe and the small scale structure of the brain simple coincidence? Or is there some deeper meaning? Something to do with the formation of the universe and galaxies following the same mathmatical formulas that control the growth of brain structure? Hmmmm........ Wish I was smart enough to research and write a paper on hat.
