What is the Shape of Space?

How do we know that space is not actually warped like this?

How do we know that space, perhaps at the universe scale, is not actually warped like this? If you, we, the entire universe were on a curved moving space like this, we may not know it due to the size involved. There is a visible horizon of time beyond which we see no stars due to the maximum fixed speed of light and the expansion of the universe. If that part of the universe visible to us was located on just one part of one of these black stripes, we would never be able to see the whole structure. In other words, we would be like a flea on the toe of an elephant.

It’s eerie. I had mentioned to my son that wonder hat it would look like if we could see all the air waves, etc. that are going on each and everyday. If you think in terms of the Earth’s population, there would have to be billions of them.

Now comes the question; is all this harmful in any way at all?

Dan Winter says that photons are toroidal like this model so why not?

He also says that magnetic poles are toroidal fields and demonstrates how to connect two opposing disc magnets so that they attract by twisting them together until contact.

I keep meaning to try it. I was always fascinated by magnetism and knew that it was ‘tapping the zero point’ or whatever you want to call it.

My question about curved space would be; if there’s a toroidal boundary, what’s on the outside? More space presumably.

The void is either infinite or within something else that’s infinite. If it’s finite, what limits it?

If there’s nothing outside it, there is infinite vacuum or void into which it can (and will) expand.

So no, space is not a toroid except if it was one density or level within some greater or higher frequency space or density.

like a complex mobius strip?

We don’t know that it isn’t like this, and the moving design might be closer than we realize.

Some say that everything from particles to the universe itself is shaped like a toroid, a vortex that closes in on itself and forms a near-round donut shape.

Then infinity could take on a whole new meaning, very closely resembling the symbol we use for it…
