Since the universe is based on motion, not matter, you have to think of boundaries like lines on a contour map, where the boundary line equals a speed of 1. Einstein used a similar concept to describe the warping of space, where his boundary lines were analogous to elevation maps, and the intersecting plane at 1 unit high was our "reality." By thinking in terms of contours, you can see that anywhere you have a net speed that equals unity, you'll have a boundary. It doesn't make little spheres around atoms, unless the atom is by itself in a void. The unit space boundary around a molecule will flow around the molecule, just like a contour.Getting back to RS2, so the unit space boundary is like the edge of the coin of space/time?
Back to the topic at hand... I've been trying to calculate astronomic distances without the use of mass or triangulation, which is rather difficult, to say the least! What I've come up with, thanks to Kepler, is a series of geometric relationships that I've applied on a larger scale. I'll admit that the results I'm getting (made three different approaches so far, and all are within the same "ball park") are unbelievable... it conflicts everything I've been taught about astronomy from youth, so it becomes a battle of "deprogramming" old ways of thought. (I've done a LOT of that, since getting involved with the Reciprocal System!)
I've worked out a location for the Andromeda "Galaxy," after studying the Hubble imagery and determining that the majority of "stars" that are visible, aren't in the galaxy but in the foreground, between us and Andromeda. They have only spotted 2 supernova in Andromeda, one in 1885 and the other in 2011, and from the 2011 event, it is impossible to determine if the supernova is actually IN Andromeda, or somewhere in the space between here and there. So when you factor out all the foreground objects, you have a yellowish, galactic core and a huge ring of dust and debris, and based on spectral data, a lot of which is still pretty hot. The core looks just like our sun.
So I made an assumption that Andromeda was about the same age as our solar system, and based on "core" size being stellar, it puts Andromeda at a distance of--get ready for this--approximately 2000 AU. Yes, Astronomical Units, which is only 0.03 light years away, out where the hypothesized Oort cloud is. And well within the gravitational limit of our sun. Checking a few other nearby "galaxies," when treated as solar systems, I found that we are in this cluster of gravitationally-bound solar systems of relatively the same age. At that distance, it certainly explains why Andromeda is visible to the naked eye--I've seen it many times, and it does not look like it is millions and millions of light years away.
The intervening "stars" became a bit of a mystery at such a small distance, until I started to calculate the age limit mass requirements for a supernova, from Nehru's papers. The amount of mass required to trigger such an event is NOT stellar... all it requires is a gas structure about 10% larger than Jupiter. I suspect that our own, outer gas giants, at one time went "supernova" and the ejecta of those supernova ended up as moons and rings. (daniel's paper on Geochronology discusses this, regarding ancient accounts of "lords" in the sky, where the planets have greatly increased in brightness in ancient times.)
These intervening "stars" don't have to be stars, at all--just reflective rocks or gas giants, since there are plenty of nearby stars providing light.
These results are mind-blowing, to say the least, and I don't know if they are right nor not, but it is certainly interesting to consider. It completely changes everything we know about astronomy... we aren't in this isolated chunk of space that requires warp drive to move between stars, but appear to be in a "globular cluster" of tightly-packed solar systems, with a lot of intervening debris. And it is a logical consequence of the RS... as a globular cluster ages, the stars will form binaries and solar systems with all sorts of ejecta, remaining gravitationally bound to each other and producing a cluster of solar systems of approximately the same age.
It also changes the ET and UFO picture considerably, as it does not require much technology to get between solar systems that are only a few thousand AU apart... so it makes it highly likely that we've been visited, and are being visited, by many other civilizations. How about that for a "disclosure project!"
