To continue the 3 Universes discussion …

Most of us are familiar with the intertwining paisley shapes that describe the Eastern symbol of duality called Yin and Yang (Male and Female), but what if there were three … let’s call them Yin, Yang, and … Yong (I submit).

Could three intertwining Universes describe what we see in the one we inhabit?


One basic problem (and solution) would be the difference in gravity between all three. Consider if you will that one has a much stronger gravity than ours, and the other much weaker, and further consider this may be a “relative” thing.

More specifically, if we could magically travel to the heavier Gravitic Universe, then our universe, the one we just left, would be the Lighter Universe because in the Heavier Universe, we would be of "normal" gravity there, relatively speaking. Once in the Heavy-verse, the Lighter-verse (in our Normal-verse) would appear heavier.

How could this be! I don’t know, but it would create a tension between all three Universes. The tension would exert itself then as a “pull” in each Universe from its relatively heavier neighbor-verse, around and around.

How this might manifest itself is “matter” in the form of say, a Higgs boson, the particle that Standard Modelers hope will explain mass, since the simpler versions of the Standard Model cannot account for that. The attraction would exert itself along the 5th dimension (4th Spatial dimension) that connects the Universes. Neutrinos would be pulled with the least strength, Black holes the strongest.

There are two established speculative models in Physics that may assist in understanding this, and which I intend to explore in greater Mathematical detail. They are:

- Randall-Sundrum model (5D Gravity Brane theory)
- Ekpyrotic Universe

There are no "problems," only ... "challenges."

Remember that for the rest of your life, please.
