You'll get better results if you do it after the sun goes down.
Actually, I do. You might take Physicist's and Longshadow's advice. Just because you fail to understand something does not mean that everyone else fails to.
Few, if any, scientists have claimed the universe is contracting. Hubble's measurements have been improved upon, but not refuted.
Uh, you do understand the difference between a measurement and a theory, don't you?
The theory of a Gravastar as mentioned seems to account for two of the black hole issues, information being one of them. But, I believe it would also address the debate of whether or not the universe is contacting or expanding.
Using the published theory that the universe as we know may be inside a Gravastar lays the groundwork for my theory, the universe is both expanding and contacting. As our Gravastar moves through space and encounters matter, which it draws into itself, the pressure in the Gravastar bubble increases like the air in a balloon when compressed. This would cause our universe inside the bubble to expand for the period of time that our Gravastar was drawing in matter.
Once the Gravastar entered an area of space where matter was in lesser amount the pressure on the bubble would decrease therefore causing the matter inside (our universe) to contract or at least slow the expansion.
Thoughts anyone? B.L. of N.C.
