Now my conclusions are not proofs but merely good applications of
logic. Not proofs because I am using a assumption of the galaxies
spaced on a grid and equidistant spacing and then overlaying this grid
onto a cylinder surface. Now I could overlay the grid of graph paper
upon a sphere surface. And what would our galaxies of the night sky
look like if the Cosmos were a sphere surface? Well, it is easy to
picture that because a flat plane graphing paper grid can be turned
into a sphere if the graph paper can be crimped at the top and bottom
of the page and then stretched out in the middle (equator) and so
where would the evenly spaced dots as galaxies be in that situation?
Well, it would mean that there are no Voids, but a lot of
superclusters and walls in every direction. So, if my assumption is
correct, then the Observable Universe cannot be a sphere or spherical
geometry because there are many Voids in the Cosmos.

Now thinking of Voids, what geometry produces the most voids? Well I
would guess that hyperbolic geometry so that if we chose a surface
like a trumpet
or funnel shaped surface that the Voids produced from a graph paper of
equidistant points as galaxies would be many times greater number of
voids than the cylinder surface. That is, provided we are looking at
the larger end of the trumpet, not the mouthpiece end of the trumpet.
But which of these three geometry surfaces fits the facts of the
Observable Universe night sky of galaxies the best? Is it a sphere
shape, a cylinder shape or a trumpet (hyperbolic) shape? Well the
sphere has no voids, and the trumpet has too many voids in one
and almost none in the opposite direction. That leaves the cylinder
shape as the likely shape of geometry of our Universe. The cylinder
shaped produces superclusters and walls of galaxies and produces Voids
in both directions and symmetrical voids and not too few nor too many

Again, this is not a proof as in mathematics, but it is a reasoned
argument with a big assumption of equidistant spaced galaxies of a


Google's (and Bing's) searches and archives are top-heavy in hate-

The solution to the sci. newsgroups is to have the sciences hosted by
colleges and universities such as Drexel University hosting sci.math,
not by corporations like Google out to make money. Science belongs in
education, not in money motivated corporations. Do I hear a?University
doing sci.physics, sci.chem, sci.biology, sci.geology, etc ?etc

Only Drexel's Math Forum has done a excellent, simple and fair
archiving of AP posts for the past 15 years as seen here:
