Abraham's Cosmology

The Cosmology of Abraham as presented in the Book of Creation which was revealed to Jewish mystics some 500 years ago is much more explicit than Try-God and not well known to Christians apparently.

What is fascinating is that Abraham's Cosmology is consistent with string theory and string cosmology and even contains details not yet proposed in string cosmology.

The book of Creation contains two sections. The first explains how six space dimensions roll up, what is now called compactification. What the book says is that the six dimensions lie in both directions along the three space dimensions. The two along the east-west direction roll up with opposite rotation. Likewise the north-south and up-down space dimensions.

This first section of the book is a discussion of the ten names of God and associated angels. The compactification of 6 dimensions ten leaves 4-d spacetime.

The second section of the book suggests that in fact there are 24 space dimensions, corresponding to each of the letters in the Hebrew alphabet. This is the strongest correspondence to string theory as the non-supersymmetric version of string theory only works with 24 space dimensions and 2 time dimensions.

On the basis of the Book of Creation, we can easily extrapolate a full cosmology that contains predictions that go beyond current string cosmology.

First of all, the latest string cosmology, proposed by Lisa Randall and Prof Sundrum is that our 4-d space time universe resides within a larger universe of at least two larger dimensions. This gives us motivation to make the following proposal.

First assume that compactification only occurs in groups of 6 dimensions. Then pure numerology says that there had to be three separate compactifications leaving two sets of 3 dimensional spaces. Together with the two time dimensions, there then are two 4-d spacetime worlds or universes in existence, one being our own universe within a larger 4-d super or mega universe. This then predicts that the number of larger space dimensions is "three".

There are also suggestions from high energy physics that there were two separate inflations, which presumably correspond to sets of compactifications. It is assumed that space compactification is coincident with 3-d space inflation, although we have not seen this in the literature. But then we have the problem of 3 separate compactification and 2 inflations.

This is resolved in the next paragraph. But first it should be mentioned that the separate inflations suggest a time sequence: the first inflation produced the larger universe and the second produced our universe. We also propose that the broken symmetry of the first inflation split gravity from the GUT force, both bosons. String theory predicts that gravity is not confined to our universe (actually they say "our brane"); so there is some consistency with theory in this assumption. Now we do not know if the two inflations happen every time a new universe is created. It may be that the first inflation is truly ancient and precedes all regular creation of universes from media containing the GUT force, rather than the unified field. We think it's more likely that new universes spring from media having the unified field; but that the first 3-d space so generated merges with an already existing megaspace containing all the smaller universes. By the way, we prefer the Smolin proposal that universes are born from the central singularities of massive black holes where a unified field is expected to exist.

So let's assume the first inflation corresponds to a 6-d compactification and 4-d super-spacetime.
That leaves two 6-d compactifications and only one 4-d spacetime of our universe. The resolution of this resides in superstring theory. Superstring theory is required to produce fermions, what matter is composed of like electrons and quarks. Superstring theory postulates that concurrent with the creation of the known particles of matter, there is a coincident creation of super-symmetric particles like the selectron and photino. This is necessary to cancel infinities in the theory. By the way, the original bosonic string theory requires 26 dimensions to cancel similar infinities. We reference the two volume set on String Theory by Max Green, Schwartz and Witten for the mathematics.

Max Green discovered the 10-d super-symmetric string theory, but never said what happened to the super-symmetric particles. Later other physicists have suggested that Dark Matter is composed of these particles. So a possible explanation is that one 6-d compactification produced fermions and a coincident 6-d compactification produced the super-symmetric particles, in the same inflating 3-d space. Indeed string theorist Duff has proposed that our world is connected to a shadow world via an 11th dimension.

So Abraham's cosmology plus some findings of string theory and the theoretical prediction of two separate inflations combine to yield a super-cosmology that is consistent with current physics and even completes it with an explicit prediction: that two 4-d spacetimes exist.

We wonder if the biblical reference to two trees in the Garden of Eden correspond to our world and the super-symmetric world.
