I've given it way and why.

Infinity = '1' (background / foreground constant (collapsed, universal 'horizon', constant)).
C = '1' ((+/-) 186,000mps) ((+/-) 300,000kps) (all velocities, all frames / all fronts (all incoming from every point of the compass), measure 'c' equal to 'c').
'(+/-)' Particle (+) / Tachyon (-) (equivalent).
C='0' ('uncertainty').
-----------------------------
Every single one (sic) of an infinity of points of the infinite Universe is the exact center point of the infinite Universe (thus 'c' will measure 'c' at every point of the compass). But never betwixt and between (c = '0' ('uncertainty')).
-----------------------------

It's a Multiverse Universe.

Is this supposed to relate to the mixture of words, letters and numbers above it?

This suggests the obvious: that every point in the observable universe is central to its observer (with the proviso that the Universe is not limited in any significant way with respect to that observer) and that c is constant, but without recognising the fact that c depends on the medium, viz c itself corresponds to the speed of light in vacuo.

Are you suggesting, in your opinion, anything beyond these long known scientific facts?

These posts are much too speedy for me, but they are informative to read as they whiz by.

Sam, sorry if you know all this (as you probably do)(so this is for anyone interested)

Hi Voidpotentialenergy,
It’s an interesting and pertinent point that you have raised and it certainly deserves to be examined in greater detail. First of all, let us consider dark matter, which makes up 85% of the Universe. Consider that all the known matter in the Universe approximates to only about 4.5%. Just take a minute to think about how weird this is. Here is something (Dark Matter) that makes up 85% of the Universe, yet it has no form, even more important, it does not interfere with the transmission of light or electromagnetic waves in any way. Think about it, the slightest disturbance in the transmission of light or electromagnetic waves would result in huge distortions: this does not happen. Further, Dark Matter has proved very elusive to detect. If you tried to weigh Dark Matter it would sink right through the weighing scale because it has extremely low interaction with matter.

Therefore, it is plausible that Dark Matter is in fact the aether that ancient philosophers talked about, it fits all of the properties that the aether was supposed to possess.

In the new theory of the aether, it is proposed that every point in the Universe is occupied by infinitesimal, almost stationary di-pole elements that possess 360 degrees of freedom of movement. This freedom of movement allows these infinitesimal elements in space to orient themselves in the direction of travel of a photon and the energy of photon travels along this line of aligned photons.

You will be pleased to learn that the link to the article given at the end of this post, addresses in a logical and connected manner your query of what the medium is and of how energy is transferred from point to point in the Universe.
I'm sure light will have a direct calculation against quantum fluctuation energy point distance.
Figure out that calculation and you probably get a good grip on the reality of space/time. and C
C speed can be just the wave interference pattern.
Just happens to be the speed it is or is tied to the reality of quanta distance.

Dark matter/energy.
Lots of reasons for dark matter, black hole under calculation, neutrino decay, quark soup, inter galactic matter etc.
Dark energy not many good reasons for something that would break conservation of energy laws.

My opinion is that dark energy/matter are byproducts of quantum fluctuation temp particle creation.
A temp amount and minimal per cubic M but it's a big universe so lots of temp particles and energy giving us a ghost dark matter/ energy.
Fluctuation also the creator and maintainer of conservation of E as it keeps E balance.

Our universe is probably not a one of a kind so a very simple reason for acceleration is external gravitational influence is now larger than internal gravity.
That allows galaxies to merge and clump.
Standard acceleration does not.

Thanks Cat. I didn't know. (I'm a "punch card / TSO" dinosaur who used PL/1 and APL).

I'd bet that a "card reader" today would only be associated with someone that reads Tarot cards.
