Regarding Double-A's question:
"What is all this rambling supposed to be about, Potter?"

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

1. In the beginning was a sphere.

2. The sphere possessed ACTION.

3. The action caused the sphere to burst into pieces.

4. The separation of the pieces is called space.
< In English >

5. Each of the pieces that were separated by spaces
burst and created more pieces and spaces,

6. Go To #5

The equation for the burst speed of a material is:

V=?(8S/((3+?)?))

Where...
V is burst speed
S is ultimate tensile strength
? is Poisson's ratio
? is density

What would the universe be like
if the initial sphere had a negative Poisson's ratio?

It would be great if someone wrote a program
that allowed one to vary the parameters
of an initial sphere,
and graphical show what happens.
