From Kermit Rose:

Re: Other universes may be detectable, published study claims (Oct. 11): Quote: “On the oth­er hand, re­search­ers have found at least one strik­ing ir­reg­u­lar­ity in the back­ground glow—a 'cold spot,' thought to be re­lat­ed to a vast and anom­a­lous void in the cos­mos.” If this void is not the absence of radiation, but is a direction from which the radiation is measurably lower frequency, then it fits my alternative model of the “Big Bang”. In my model, the observable part of the universe is not expanding, but shrinking. The “Big Bang” residual radiation corresponds to radiation from galaxies so far away that their visual light has lost so much energy by its uphill climb against gravity that its wavelength has shifted to that of the measured background radio way frequency.

Imagine that all the galaxies in our universe are falling toward a central gravitational singularity. The void could be the direction of that singularity. The universe would appear to be expanding, even while shrinking, because galaxies closer to the singularity than us would be falling faster than us, thus accelerating away from us. And galaxies farther away from us would be falling toward this singularity more slowly, so they would also appear to be speeding away from us. The farther away from us in the direction of the singularity they were, the faster they would be moving away from us. Perhaps a test of my model would be the answer to this question: If we assume a central singularity in the direction of the void, and can judge by the angle of a galaxy with respect to the angle of the void, and by it’s apparent speed away from us how much closer or farther away it is from this central singularity than we are, are all the measurements consistent with general relativity and with the galaxies fitting within a large sphere with the singularity at the center?

I would also anticipate that the creation aspect is still going on. At the event horizon of this singularity, much farther out than we are, new matter is being created. Of course we can’t see this. But we can see the process that created the matter that was being created around the same time that the matter that eventually became our galaxy was created. And of course, as we continue to fall toward the singularity, we will observe that particular galaxies will speed up in their moving away from us.
