Is "Time" Real? What Is Time? Do Gravitons Exist? Just How Big Is the Universe? - Part 3 - The Diameter of the Universe!!

Now, having considered the shape of the Universe and its chronologically layered structure of cosmic evolution and expansion we have all the values we need to deduct just how big is the Universe as of today.

We know that the Universe was born out of no space at all about 15 billion years ago and since the first second of its life it has been expanding in volume and size. The Universe expanded spherically from the central Big Bang point of genesis outwards towards a yet unforeseen end-point, that may as well be hundreds of billions years away long, long way ahead. The sphere is a shape that can accumulate an infinite number of spacial dimensions and withstand the greatest exterior pressure. As it expanded because of the accumulation of dark-matter space that filled it up from within, the Universe retained its chronological center of genesis that can be considered as layer 0 or the most inner point of the onion-like invisible chronologically layered expansion. Today, we are located somewhere in the outer most layer of the expanding Universe and peering towards its center we see it as it was before the expansion reached its present-day size, that is we say that we peer back in the past but instead we peer towards the center of the Universe or more specifically we capture the spectral information particles carry from this stage of cosmic evolution. This center is located at about 15 billion years away from us. Thus, the present-day diameter of the Universe is 30 billion years. And the future? We cannot see it, the way we can see the “past” simply because it is not there yet!

All the sudden, the Universe seems much smaller than we previously thought, doesn’t it? If you consider 280, 000, 000, 000, 000, 000, 000, 000 kilometers as cosmic diameter a small space that is. It is huge, even for the speed of light!

If we now return to our earlier approximate estimation of matter-dark matter proportions in the Universe, having deducted its present-day size at 280, 000, 000, 000, 000, 000, 000, 000 km in diameter we could do the following logical gradation: if all the observable matter can be theoretically squeezed into the spherical space between the Sun and the nearest star Proxima Centaur, which is located at approx. 40 trillion kilometers away then we can estimate that the present day matter-dark matter proportions in the cosmos are about 40 trillion to 280, 000, 000, 000, 000, 000, 000, 000 in approximate values.

And in this mind-boggling space we live in we cannot achieve peace and harmony with each other on our small and beautiful planet, how primitive we must be to live in such a pitiful state as humanity is today. And where will we be tomorrow?
