The path from an almost perfect sphere
to the "almost perfect universe.


The volume of a perfect sphere is:
volume = 4 / 3 * pi * radius^3

If a sphere divides into two equal parts
and there is no "sawdust"
( No matter is converted into space.)

each part would have a volume of
one half of the original volume.

A division of an original sphere with a volume of 1.0 volume units,
would create two spheres with volumes of .5 volume units.


The radius of a perfect sphere is:
radius = ( 3/4 * volume / pi ) ^.3333333

The radius of a 1.0 unit sphere is 0.620350491
and the radii of a .5 unit sphere is 0.492372511.

The first two spheres from a division would create a space of
2 * 0.492372511 or 0.984745023
compared to the original space of 0.620350491,
thus the space would be increased by 0.364394531 space units.


The space generate by 1,000,000 divisions would be
6203.504941 space units.

and the space generate by 1,000,001 divisions would be
6203.509076 space units.

As can be seen, as more and more divisions occur,
the creation of space becomes less obvious.


Time and 3D space came about
because an initial amount of action
existed in the universe.

The action modulated the rotation of matter,
creating 3D space and time,

time being a count of some standard angular displacement.


The division of matter creates non-spherical matter
TEMPORARILY, but Nature uses action
to reduce non-spherical material to perfect spheres.

Nature even created animals and man
to help in the process of reducing non-spherical
matter to more perfect spheres.

Man makes low places high
and high places low.


When matter divides,
one or both of two things happen:

1. space increases
2. the volume of matter decreases

Hubble expansion seems to tell us
that space is increasing.


The bottom line is,
sawdust is created when matter divides,
and the sawdust is space,

and time and 3D space
are created by the rotation of matter,

which was and is driven by
a fixed amount of action
that existed from the first division.

Assuming that the diameter of the universe is 45 billion years,
and that one sphere existed 14 billion years ago,
one can calculate
how much matter has been converted to space over time
how much action exists in the universe,
and approximately how many matter divisions have occurred.

The basic formula
that drives the universe is:
radius = ( 3/4 * volume / pi ) ^.3333333

The rate at which non-spherical matter
is converted to spherical matter,
is a function of the amount of
action extant in the matter and its' environment,
and on the geometry of the matter,
and this is the next step in the complexity of matter, space, and time.

Observe that as divisions occur,
space become more and more homogeneous
due to the "Mixmaster effect" caused by the action,

and the action is more evenly distributed to the
increasing number of matter pieces.
