I, K. Marinas, am the founder of my Cyclic Multiverse Hypothesis, in which I propose that universe is a fractal, as an alternative to the Big Bang Theory. My idea is not science as of yet, since the vast majority of detailed cosmological data and computing power is outside of my reach. Another reason why it is not science right now is because it is not being studied by staff of a university. This page is not something you can nor should cite for a school project. Meanwhile, I think that my idea lacks the errors of previous alternatives to the Big Bang Theory.

Visual aids for this Cyclic Multiverse HypothesisEdit
The Cyclic Multiverse is a self-similiar fractal which might have formed just like a snowflake would. Anything from the curvature of movement to the pattern of a snowflake can ultimately explained with units of measurement.

|Our fractal level||Child fractal level|
Depiction of the difference between different fractal levels (zooming in from left to right)
If our fractal level is represented by the person on the left side of the above image, then the child fractal level is represented by the person on the right side of the above image. The primary physical properties for a particle or body (such as a proton, or turtle, etc.) existing in our fractal level can be compared with similar-in-kind entity (e.g. a proton, or turtle, etc.) in the child fractal level. Properties of the child fractal level would differ from those of our fractal level by scale factors derived from a length scale factor raised to various integer exponents as follow:
Scale factors Edit
[k-2] mass and time Edit
[k-1] wavelength, radius of gyration, (net) charge Edit
[k2] frequency, temperature, luminous intensity Edit
[k0] scale-invariant properties Edit
From these assumptions, we can determine the changes that occur in other physical properties for every fractal level we go down.
The physical properties for the child fractal level compared to that of our fractal level are as follows:
Quanta (q) [k-1=k1-2] Edit

What this hypothesis requiresEdit
Cyclic Multiverse Hypothesis explains the redshifts of galaxies varying in distance by proposing two things:
- Hyperbolic curvature of light paths
New kinds of collapsed masses called TeraQuasars. These are proposed celestial objects with the proposed mass of trillions of quasars located behind the furthest galaxies and stars we can see in the universe - see Hubble Deep Field.
- Gravitational redshift is the decrease of a photon's frequency with increasing gravitational potential. This kind of redshift is directly linked with the curvature of the gravitational field.
- Angular diameter distance of distant galaxies can be explained as being an effect caused by an immensely dense gravitational field situated in the background.
To explain the Cosmic Background Radiation, the Cyclic Multiverse Hypothesis requires that TeraQuasars are surrounded by an environment which has a similar (if not exactly the same) composition as the one described in the Big Bang theory of the "early" universe. This is analogous to quasars in the centers of galaxies which have a radiation intense environment surrounding them. This environment would be a shell surface that today's cosmologists call the surface of last scattering. However, in contrast to the idea of today's cosmologists - that the surface of the last scattering is a spherical shell concentric to the point of observation - in this Cyclic Multiverse Hypothesis, the surface of the last scattering occurs at ellipsoid-like surfaces of several TeraQuasars - at the same temperature (~3000K) and redshift (~1100).
Contrast from Black HolesEdit
TeraQuasars cannot be thought of as black holes with the mass of trillions of galaxies. That is, because it is required by the Cyclical Multiverse Hypothesis that the TeraQuasars are surrounded by low entropy. This is the same kind of low entropy required by the early universe of the Big Bang Theory. A possible candidate is the Gravastar, which is described as having a very low entropy, in contrast to the high (even maximum) entropy of black holes. Also, with the Gravastar, matter has the ability to bounce back away, a theoretical feature which is necessary in this Cyclic Multiverse Hypothesis. Experiments will be needed to test theories involving Gravastar-like objects. The discovery of such an object would be consistent with this Cyclic Multiverse Hypothesis.
Contrast from Cyclic Big Bang/Big CrunchEdit
Instead of an inflating singularity that collapses upon itself and reinflates etc., the Cyclical Multiverse Hypothesis proposes that the TeraQuasars are the source of new matter (predominately hydrogen) and that old and new matter can enter and exit the multimillion-light-year thick atmosphere of TeraQuasars. A fractal with a pattern that repeats towards the infinitely large scales and towards the infinitely small scales is necessarily heterogeneous in space at all levels, whereas many cyclic universe models based on the Big Bang Theory suggest that the universe is homogeneous and isotropic at large scales.
More on the size of TeraQuasarsEdit
Since TeraQuasars would be very large and exist behind a significant fraction of the sky, even more than the Andromeda Galaxy which itself spans 8 moon diameters, they would appear basically uniform and isotropic when viewed through the microwave spectrum. The TeraQuasars could also be accompanied by smaller partners, or GigaQuasars, which would be like TeraQuasars, but many times smaller.
Hyperbolic curvature of light pathsEdit
Hyperbolic curvature of light paths is an idea taken from Hyperbolic geometry applied to the motion of light.
- Observations of galactic rotation velocities (see Galaxy rotation problem) and the brightness of distant supernovas (see Dark Energy) cause the author to suggest that the space outside our solarsystem, between the stars and between the galaxies is hyperbolic.
- Consequences of Hyperbolic Geometry:
- Stars and galaxies would be dimmed by a factor different than the inverse-square law.
- The low-density space between the stars and between the galaxies would act like a concave (zoom out) lens. The parallaxes of stars would be smaller than it would be without the Hyperbolic curvature of space-time, which means that stars and galaxies would be closer than what would be believed if the space between stars was Euclidean. The galaxy would be smaller in diameter than it appears, however, the star count would remain valid.
- Having negative curvature between galaxies in clusters would make them appear farther apart than they really are. The required dark matter abundance would be reduced significantly.
- The observable part of our universe would be smaller than it appears, yet remains stable due to local gravitational repulsion within the gravity of the whole.
Determinant of the hyperbolic curvature of light pathsEdit
Any proposed zoom-out effect must be able to account for any astronomical observations in order to be valid. One particular observation is the angular speed of Triangulum Galaxy (also known as Messier Object 33 (or M33)), which has been measured astrometrically using a wide-spread array of radio telescopes called the Very Long Baseline Array.
The radius of the galaxy M33 was inferred from the standard premises, after two things: 1) observing a Doppler redshift which give us velocity , and 2) observing directly the angular speed of the galaxy using an array of radio telescopes separated by many thousands of kilometers. The radius of the galaxy may be determined by dividing the velocity by the angular speed .
The introduction of distance variable results from a conjecture that radii of individual galaxies are less than they appear to be. The factor by which is greater than may be defined as the variable which stands for the exaggeration of distance caused by the zoom out effect. Since the value of angular speed does not disagree at all with the normal expectations of scientists, the variable must also imply the factor by which the velocity is exaggerated. Of course, the measured orbital velocity of masers in M33 is determined via the Doppler redshift equation, of which drastic modification ought to be avoided. Therefore, the new requirement is to divide from the deduced from the Doppler formula to get - the actual orbital velocity.
For quantification, a potential field must be defined.
While elliptic curvature of light paths can be explained using the gravitational potential, the need for a hyperbolic curvature of light paths requires another potential having an opposite sign. Therefore, a new definition of potential energy at the cosmic level will be used by the Cyclic Multiverse concept that implements the effect of a hypothetical Hubble Vacuum Potential Energy (HVPE) that is rooted in the expansion that has been associated with Hubble's law.

GPE is simply Gravitational Potential Energy which was discovered by Issac Newton.
determines the field potential energy with respect to galaxies.
is the mass subject to this potential.
determines the field potential energy with respect to a TeraQuasar. The sign of the potential is opposite of that for galaxies. Instead of an inverse square attractive force and a square repulsive potential, TeraQuasars have an inverse square repulsive force and a square attractive potential.
Again, where is the mass subject to this potential.
The goal is to make the gravitational laws of the very large and very small alike:
- It is intended by K. Marinas that corresponds to a hypothesis in Quantum Chromodynamics (QCD) which involves a quadratic potential.
- Mario Everaldo de Souza has hypothesized a hidden SU(2) substructure of quarks. He calls the new particles primons (a quark, he says, is composed of two of these). K. Marinas currently assumes this be the case, saying that one TeraQuasar corresponds to one of the primons in a single quark.
In general, where:
, the angular momentum, is equal to or simply .
, the angular speed, which is the same as .
Given , the following are the initial steps for solving for exaggeration :
By solving for in this cubic equation, the following solutions for can be found:
|The Sun's orbit around the Milkyway|
|Virgo cluster (visible mass only)|

is the stable equilibrium consistent with the surface of the last scattering, or the shell of the surface of a TeraQuasar.
goes from attraction to repulsion (negative to positive ) as distance increases.
goes from repulsion to attraction (positive to negative ) as distance increases.
Quark confinement of the higher fractal levelEdit
In this case, a TeraQuasar's maximum distance is approached and confinement approaches the point where taking the TeraQuasar any further, via an addition of background radiation (such as a high energy gamma ray from the parent fractal level), would result in one or more new TeraQuasars. Applies for: at largest radii with respect to TeraQuasars.
Quark production of the higher fractal levelEdit
In this case, galaxies travel at relativistic speeds with respect to the background radiation emitted by TeraQuasars, and because of this they become massive enough to become seeds which may or may not develop into the next TeraQuasar. Applies for: at largest radii with respect to galaxies.
Super Quasar Production of our fractal levelEdit
In this case, a whole cluster of galaxies would be able to become a "super" quasar simply due to the attraction between them (i.e. without a "Tera"Quasar's influence). Formation of a quasar in this way may be more likely in TeraQuasar systems external to ours which are devoid of life. Applies for: at smallest radii with respect to galaxies.
Quantum Gravity of the parent fractal levelEdit
In this case, a TeraQuasar system (a system of Quarks of our parent fractal level) has a jumpy reaction following a collision with a particle (massive or non massive) from our parent fractal level (perhaps one inside in depths of a "super" quasar of our parent fractal level), which would result in a reflection off the upper boundary of "Q"uark confinement, , at large radii. This may be the cause of a subsequent reflection off of the lower boundary, (beneath the surface TeraQuasars themselves). During the subsequent reflection, the components of a TeraQuasar system of our fractal level overcome much of the repulsion that occurs amongst them. This would even require that the surfaces of these components (TeraQuasars) pass through one another. Merged TeraQuasars of our fractal level may be the compositional basis of second and third generation Quarks of our parent fractal level which are subject to decay. In order for a singularity be simulated, TeraQuasars of an infinitely small fractal level would have be to merged into third generation quarks within the third generation quark of a higher fractal level, repeated infinitely... followed by third generation quarks which are the composition of a TeraQuasar of our fractal level (equivalent to 1/2 a Quark of our parent fractal level). The impossibility of merging all constituent third generation quarks into a single point would prevent a singularity. Decay of some of these infinitesimal particles is more likely than merging the infinite number of these infinitesimal particles which make up a third generation quark inside the TeraQuasar into a single point. It would then follow that weak interaction proliferating inside particles of an infinity of fractal levels prevents the singularity. Applies for: at the smallest radii with respect to TeraQuasars.
This approach has been favored against the following approaches for having non-problematic values of (1), for having relevance to Hubble observations (2), for sticking to correct concepts of Kinetic Energy (3), and for always having solutions (4).
For all the following formulas, is orbital velocity, which in these cases are approximately equal to
(1): (2): , where is the anomalous pioneer acceleration. (3): (4):
Gravitational, Weak, Electromagnetic, and Strong forcesEdit
In the Cyclical Multiverse Hypothesis, the gravitational attraction of our fractal level becomes a binding force in the higher fractal level that:
- opposes a nucleus' tendency to split apart (The Strong Nuclear Force)
- becomes the attractive force between protons and electrons (The Attractive Electromagentic Force)
Similiarly, the gravitational repulsion defined by the mechanism above becomes a seperating force in the higher fractal level that:
- decays massive particles (such as neutrons) into smaller ones (The Weak Force)
- leads to CP-violation in antimatter (The Weak Force)
- keeps the nucleus from becoming a black hole (The Repulsive Electromagentic Force)
- prevents the electron from merging with a proton (depsite their opposite charge)
- puts a limit on the number of electrons an element can have
If the universe were eternal, the weak force would have enough time to accumulate the observed difference between the amount of matter and antimatter. The remaining antimatter would be maintained by natural particle accelerators found inside extreme environments such as the center of the Milky Way.
These become the two fundamental forces (i.e. the binding force and the seperating force) of the universe. Both must exist in order for the fractal universe to be eternal and moderate.
Energy containment within a fractal level Edit
According to the section #A Fractal Universe and Physical Units, similar-in-kind objects in different fractal levels have the same order of magnitude in energy.
Paradox This implies that if an exponential rate of decay, in the form of matter being converted into propagating electromagnetic waves, whose time parameter (or half-life) corresponded to the unit of time for the fractal level of said matter, then this would cause an outflow of energy which would make the relationship between energy and scale factor increasingly divergent, causing energy to concentrate to a fractal level in the infinitely large. Extrapolating the conditions of exponential decay to the infinitely small would cause our fractal level to have a very short life indeed, especially considering the very short duration of each of their cycles (gyration periods).
Resolution The resolution to this problem is that energy in a fractal level is contained within a fractal level in two ways:
- By an upper boundary existing at the level of the immediate universe, somewhat larger than the volume currently visible to today's astronomers, which has dimensions of at least 1026 meters.
- By a lower boundary existing at the level of the positive nucleon (e.g. proton), which has dimensions of 10-15 meters.
Possible effects of this resolution The energy associated with a fractal level can be seen as have a propagation velocity obeying a log-normal distribution. Wavelength, frequency, and energy within a fractal level may also obey a log-normal distribution within each fractal level. This has possible implications for any future statistical thermodynamic treatment of this model.
4-symmetry (or Quadrant) representation of a fractal level Edit
|Quantized & Extreme|| TeraQuasars/Quarks: Usually convergent (= quark confinement represents an upper boundary for energies being transported across sublevels within a fractal level; prevailing, not absolute tendency)
Strong Interaction (Quantum gravity/Color charge) can power objects inside a large Electric field. Balance of Electromagnetism and Strong Interaction creates complex forms. Collapse is prevented by proton repulsion.
| Molecules/Protons/Electrons: Usually divergent (= electron clouds and inter-nucleon spaces represent a lower boundary for energies being transported across sublevels within a fractal level; prevailing, not absolute tendency)

^ This hypothesis was formerly called Cyclical or Cyclic Multiverse Theory. K. Marinas later renamed it because the specific meaning of the word "theory" has a literal interpretation in the sciences which is different than the literal interpretation of the layman.
^ Originally, I tried defining the mass in proportion to the distance (i.e. 1E-41 when distance was 1E-41), while using the Schwarzschild radius as a guideline for how I should start investigating, but then after considering the mass of the universe in relation to a proton, I realized that it would not work that way. I dismissed that a couple times, since that would require redefining the Gravitational Constant for the lower fractal level which is described in units of . Years later, I still held the assumption that the speed of light would be the same for all fractal levels. Now this assumption is excised, and now objects at smaller fractal levels are predicted to move much, much faster.
