MIRROR MIND OF
THE CYCLIC UNIVERSE
It's the structure of creation.
Prof Neil Turok
"The big crunch is the collapse of one extra dimension"
latest Big Bang theory proposes
a cyclic universe --driven by colliding
membranes. The new model supports
analysis that a human-like mirror mind
created our universe. The wall
in science is coming down.
17th September 2002
Bang researchers have developed a landmark theory, with just-glimpsed
implications which dethrone established scientific views of the
world. Princeton's Jeremiah Ostriker has called the theory "..the
first new big idea in cosmology in over two decades."
Were Louis Pasteur alive he would be overjoyed. The new theory intersects
with his conviction that the left-handed twist of amino acids in
living tissues held the key to the mysteries of creation. He was
In 1851 Pasteur wrote: "I am on the verge of mysteries
and the veil which covers them is getting thinner and thinner."
But it has taken another 150 years to fully dissolve that veil.
Let's examine the new theory, then see how this links back to Pasteur.
The most recent breakthrough has come from Princeton University's
Paul J. Steinhardt and Cambridge University's Neil Turok. The two
leading cosmologists have confirmed the applicability of string
theory to a cyclic universe. According to this view, universes are
created and then disperse into space, one after another, with each
cycle lasting trillions of years.
A variation of this concept known as M theory, proposes that the
universe consists of two parallel sheets, or membranes, in a higher
dimension. The two so-called 'branes' are separated by another
dimension only nanometers wide. When the membranes slap together,
they trigger the big bang and begin rapidly expanding like stretched
On the membrane which holds the known universe, this bang generates
the particles and forces which form our Milky Way. The other membrane
contains "dark energy."
Over trillions of years the membranes continue to expand, growing
darker, colder and more diffuse. When the 'branes' eventually become
flat and featureless they collapse and come together for another
they approach each other, both 'brane' surfaces warp and develop
topographical features: hills and valleys on their surfaces.
These features determine where the matter and energy of the big
bang will subsequently appear as galaxies in our 3D space. The cycle
repeats indefinitely --which answers, to a degree, the question
of what came before the Big Bang.
It's a significant improvement on the idea that the universe exploded
out of a tiny dense point called a singularity. Theories have attempted
to fit matter, energy, and the recently postulated dark matter and
dark energy, together in a singularity. But the work has proved
a conceptual and mathematical nightmare. Now, the new model spreads
the inflationary bang out across an entire plane. The idea avoids
the need to rewrite the laws of physics in order to try expand the
universe out of a point.
"As long as the temperature is high enough where things are boiled
into their elementary constituents -- quarks and electrons -- that's
enough to restore the conditions we need to explain the history
of the universe," says Steinhardt.
Cosmologists are divided over the latest theory, despite it's explanatory
power. The underlying mathematics are boggling, but let's just take
the core of the Two branes idea and see how beautifully it dovetails
with a visual and structural analysis of the world around us.
BRAINS BEHIND BRANES
the universe was formed between two planes, then we should find
evidence today of such a pivotal event. Cosmologists look for
confirmation in the depths of space.
The idea that such evidence could be found in human anatomy does
not sit easily with the view that humans are just an accidental
afterthought of the cosmos. But actually, human anatomy is the
definitive reality check for any cosmological theory.
So, where can we find two adjacent "branes" with matching
topographical features? Well, our bodies have two "brain"
hemispheres and we have mirror-image body features --either side
of the vertical plane down the center of our torso which is our
inbuilt plane of symmetry.
It get more interesting. Brain functions are not symmetrically
distributed in both hemispheres. Rather, the hemispheres have
an asymmetry of function.
The ABSTRACT right hemisphere is holistic, 3-D, visuo-spatial,
contextual, and excels at open-ended tasks. Just like an atomic
The CONCRETE left hemisphere is analytical, symbolic, poor
spatially, literal, and excels at structured tasks. Just like
an atomic proton.
There is a clear equivalence between brains and "branes."
Brain function is split into the concrete and the abstract. The
Big Bang "Branes" are likewise split into concrete matter
and the ephemeral "dark energy."
But there is something wrong with this analogy. Our bodies do
not have all the energy on one side and all the matter on the
other. Both sides are equally real and concrete in physical terms.
So, these two body planes must somehow interpenetrate each other.
And they must do so in a way that is consistent with how the two
creation "branes" connect and interpenetrate. Here's
Imagine the branes are linked by uncounted trillions of slightly
elastic strings. The strings join points in one brane to corresponding
points in the other brane.
As the branes separate, the strings are pulled taut. When the
branes reach the limit of the string length, they draw together
again. The strings are waves.
Suppose we simplify. Instead of trillions of strings, we generalize
to show just one wave between the two branes. Like an infinity
symbol between two planes. This is the space-time wave.
A similar structure results if we had made a conceptual leap of
considering the two branes as sheets of corrugated perspex. When
the corrugations are aligned the same direction, the two sheets
touch at all points. If we then turn one sheet through 90 degrees,
the corrugations themselves will make the sheets move apart so
that they only touch at one point. We can say they separate as
a result of a rotation.
conceptualizing. Time for a reality check with human anatomy --where
we find that the eyes and the sides of the head are two planes
separated by a wave.
Looks like we are on the right track. And there's more.
let's see how this wave merges into the branes bounding each end.
So far we have simplified the interaction. Actually, the space-time
wave is a vortex from one brane wrapped around a vortex of opposite
rotation from the other brane. As if, in this diagram,
you were to rotate the planes in opposite directions, twisting
the fabrics on each side of the central blue area.
A reality check now: clasp your wrists in front of your body such
that the heel of each hand is over the pulse point inside the
opposite wrist. Your fingers and thumbs will wrap around the forearms
in a splayed fashion whereby each hand describes a vortex of opposite
rotation. A vortex from one brain wrapped around
a vortex from the other!
simplified single wave model, implies opposite
rotation black hole vortices in each brane --joined
back to back. The whole is like a conjoined trombone with a tennis
ball in the narrowest part. Each vortex converges on the ball at
it's center point opposite the vortex.
down the black holes either side of this cosmic trombone, we see
both sides of the encap-sulated ball of "white energy."
Human conscious-ness perceives this energy on many harmonic levels.
O O N
On the "Sun" side of the trombone, this is the white energy
which makes the sun shine. It is also the energy inherent in the
female breast --which exudes a sustaining white milk. Looking into
the "Moon" side of the trombone, is like going backstage
for a rear view of our universe. Rather than a gravity hole, there
is an energy hole. Through it, we can see as if through a veil.
The dimly seen glow of the sun on the other side of the membrane
we now perceive as a moon. This is the "white energy"
which lights the night sky.
How can the fiery sun of day and the relatively cool moon of night
be so close? Try the polarizing rotation trick to see what is going
on. Take two polarizing sheets, then rotate one through a 90 degree
angle. Now no light penetrates. In a similar way, the 'moon energy'
and 'sun energy' coexist because they are in zones of space and
negative space created by opposing rotations in a higher dimension.
THE EAR AND NOW
Reality check time. The eyes form an infinity symbol. Let's call
the outside point of the eyes the 'Alpha' and the 'Omega'. The
point between the two eyes is the 'Now'. So, the width of the
human head is clearly equivalent to the maximum separation of
the two creation branes.
If the branes have black holes, we should also find a black hole
in each side of a human head. Obviously, the "black holes"
are our ears.
And when we look inside our ears, what do we find? We find spirals
in each inner ear, and like the brane vortices, they too are of
Now we can build "The Cardboard Cutout Universe Generator."
Take a cereal pack and draw two circles --using as a template
a plastic container lid that has a point in it's center.
Cut out the circles and make a tiny hole in the center of each.
Cut from the edge of each disc along a radius to the center. You
can optionally cut a sliver of arc out of the disc at this point.
Hold the circles with their glossy sides facing and slide the
two circles together along their radii, so that each covers half
the other. Now rotate one until only a small arc of the circle
behind shows through the cut.
With this cosmic toy you can model why two twelve hour rotations
make a single day: one rotation brings the dark circle to the
front; flip the cuts when they are aligned and a second 12 hour
rotation returns the discs to their prior positions.
You can model the rising and setting of the sun. You can crudely
model the phases of the moon.
If you could spin the discs in all orientations
at the speed of possibility itself, you could generate the observable
universe. This is the quantum oscillator: a wave generator that
gives the universe wings on which to fly.
360 degree counter spin by each helix is the basic construction
of reality. Larger counter -spins generate the harmonics which
build complexity out of fractal simplicity. The counter rotating
helix structures are the real heart of our model.
You would expect that increasing the angle gets back to the starting
position (one full turn). But the spin is the shape of a hyperbolic
curve and never quite manages a full turn. As the angle increases
we get ever-shrinking spatial separations and ever-increasing
time separations. Space contraction and time dilation. Reality
Check: a heartbeat, in other words.
As the heart powers the body, so also the helices generate the
two brane sheets. Like this: The surface of your bath water is
a flat plane. Then you pull the plug and the water swirls away
down a vortex into the plug hole. Now imagine time were reversed
--and your bath mysteriously filled from out of the plug hole.
The vortex would unfurl into a flat plane before your very eyes.
THE ANATOMY OF REALITY
human anatomy we can find many more reality checks for the structure
of our cosmic creation model.
The double trombone looks like a pelvis, does it not? Pivoting
about the pelvis, the sweep of our legs is an echo of the radial
wave generators. From another angle, the navel also marks the
center of this helical swirl. The interpenetrating of the branes
is seen in the way the left side of the brain controls the right
side of the body and vice versa, through a bundle of nerve fibers
called the corpus collosum which joins the two brain hemispheres.
Our hands are a perfect model of the branes and the waves. The
palms are branes and the fingers are waves. Clap them together.
Clap! You just simulated the big bang. A round of applause, please.
Applause is a celebration of the creation event. Clap, clap; bang,
bang; life life. Skeptical?
Try this: Place your palms together, as if to pray. Recall how
we described the separation of the branes being a rotation within
the plane itself? Now, rotate your palms through 45 degrees in
opposite directions, while bending your hands inwards at the knuckles.
This will create an enclosed space between your hands --bounded
by palms of space and anti-space; and fingers of wave and anti-wave.
are now holding a "white energy" ball and also mimicking
the primeval cell. This drawing apart as you rotate and bend your
hands is modeling cell division and the copying and splitting
of cellular DNA. And, you already know that DNA is a double helix.
Well don't there twiddling your thumbs..... Actually, perhaps
you should! Bring your hands together, overlapping your fingers.
Then twiddle your thumbs clockwise, then anti-clockwise. Hey,
It's the quantum oscillators! Each of your 90 degree opposed thumbs
is now twiddling at 45 degrees to your palm.
You are a walking test lab for cosmological theories. Welcome
to the Anatomy of Reality. Now, perhaps it is time to pause, review
and also see where Pasteur fits into all this.
Basic physics determines the laws of probability must be preserved.
Crystals and molecules can be found in two mirror image forms,
but these mirror images exist in equal measure --adhering to the
laws of probability.
Pasteur had uncovered a startling anomaly. In living tissues,
amino acid populations are entirely of one mirror image only.
Amino acids in tissues invariably have a left-handed twist. That's
like tossing a coin and having it come up heads virtually every
Imagine you stood in front of a very special mirror. In this mirror
--as with a normal mirror-- when you raise your left hand, the
image holds up its right hand. Suppose the special mirror could
also mirror your amino acids, twisting them to the right --not
That mirror must exist. Take our coin tossing analogy again.
If I am tossing and getting heads only, then there must be somewhere
a poor schmuck throwing tails only. Otherwise the laws of probability
are broken. Those right-handed amino acids have got to
be out there somewhere. No wonder Pasteur was intrigued. This
issue was the first to enthrall him as a young scientist.
our creation branes are somewhat of a mirror. The two membranes
have mirrored topographical features, but they are not the same.
One holds matter and energy, the other an unknown "dark energy."
Could the "dark energy" brane of the cyclic model be
the elusive mirror where the missing right-twist amino acids are
to be found? You bet it could. This is getting curiouser and curiouser,
as Alice might say in Looking Glass Land. Let's find out exactly
what is on the other side of that mirror.
THE INFOLD OUTFOLD
A common mirror is strikingly similar to two adjacent creation
branes. A mirror has two planes --the
front and back of one sheet of glass. One side of the glass
is silvered to produce the reflection, the other side is clear.
Similarly, one of the creation branes matter, the other is "dark
energy." By carefully examining the mirror process, we can
discover how hyperspace and space-time to interract with each
First, let's take a closer look at ideas about infolding and encapsulation.
The vacuum of empty space is not empty at all. It is full of scalar
potential. Scalar means: order the unordered. This hyperspace
potential is all around us; inside every part of space-time The
universe is like a vast hologram, where every part contains the
Here is a simplified model of the interaction between the complex
brane and the space-time brane. As soon as the planes make
contact, one plane infolds into a circle, encapsulating part of
the other plane in a point inside. Then mirroring and counter-flows
take place, the precise of which will be explored in a forthcoming
From the space-time perspective, it seems the hyperspace plane
has infolded invisibly inside space-time But on the hyperspace
side, the mirror reverse is happening: the space-time plane is
outfolding into hyperspace, but in a diffuse fashion. This infold/outfold
mechanism is bi-directional. And what seems infolded on one side
is actually outfolded on the other.
When the Star Trek 'Enterprise' engages hyperspace drive, it does
not really rush away at super-light speed as depicted on TV. Rather,
It infolds, disappears and then unfolds elsewhere in space. In
nature, a tree infolds it's structure into a seed, drops it to
the soil below (the event horizon), and the seed outfolds into
a new tree.
fertilization of the ovum is also an infold/outfold process. Point-sized
'hyperspace' sperm infolds into the space-time circle of the ovum.
Later, a child outfolds back into space-time.
Notice how the eye is similar to a womb. The eye and brain also
operate by infold/outfold. The eye infolds space-time data into
the brain where it outfolds into hyperspace. How? The vibrations
of molecular bonds on proteins in the brain, resonate with the
hyperspace around which they are wrapped. No wonder the brain
can store so much and process it so fast --It has access to a
storage/processing medium as big as a universe.
brain works like a reverse tree. In the brain, sense data attach
to a tree structure, which then grows backwards --shrinking to
a point, thus expanding into hyperspace.
The mirror is also like an eye, in that it too focusses to a point.
We can arrange a pair of mirrors so that they show a cascade of
images diminishing to a point in the mirror distance. So, the
back of a mirror is like the back of the eyeball, and like the
matter creation brane. All three have hyperspace on the other
THE EYE IN THE SKY
the other side of the mirror, the dimensions look the same as
All seems properly to scale.
But, not always. The mirror world is only a true duplicate
if the plane of the mirror is perfectly flat. When mirrors are
curved, they transform the appearance of the mirror world. And
when mirrors have complex curvature they entirely alter the picture.
Just as mirrors can alter reality, quantum oscillators between
the branes can do the same. As can black holes in space.
Here's how. A hi-fi speaker is an excellent model for comparison.
The cone and membrane in the speaker vibrate (forward and back
only) based on the modulations in the transmission from your favorite
radio station. Now, imagine a membrane that not only moves forward/back,
but can swivel up/down and left/right as well.
Celestial Radio Station: in 1998 Draza Markovic and
Frederick Lamb of the University of Illinois discovered wobbles
in the inner part of the accretion disk that rotates around neutron
stars. This Lense-Thirring precession is caused by dragging
of inertial frames around a rotating mass. The wobble modulates
the stars' X-ray emission by generating 'sidebands' on the strong
kilohertz periodic oscillations.
Amazingly, just like a radio signal, the sidebands contain details
of the stars' mass and spin, the local distortion of space-time,
and the location of the stars' innermost stable orbit --all naturally
encoded in the signal.
the neutron star at the macroscopic level, the quantum oscillators
modulate reality on the microscopic scale. They sit astride the
bridge between space-time and hyperspace. Like aircraft wings,
the speed and angle of the two helical sweeps tweak the orientation
of the plane bisecting the ball within the double vortices. So
the wave function emitted by the quantum oscillator can alter
reality much like a curved mirror transforms the image of reality,
The shape of the vortex warps the curve of the branes.
The neutron star above is outfolding complex(more than 3D) mathematical
functions into space-time, whereas the mirror and the human eye
are both infolding space-time light waves into the maths of the
complex dimension. In other words: what is on the other side
of the mirror is like pure maths --like a wire-frame model in a
computer-aided design program. Call it maths or call it music --both
are expressions of the same process.
creates linear effects in space-time, space-time produces nonlinear
effects as feedback to hyperspace. They overlap in the white energy
ball between the vortices, where classic and quantum physics meet.
When hyperspace functions slip through the quantum oscillator into
space-time, they slow down by one light-speed dimension. And they
infold into our reality --producing an outfolding response.
It would require a fabulous supercomputer to recalculate the entire
universe every nanosecond. But the universe is the ultimate parallel
processing system. Every bit of space-time is individually wrapped
around the same complex plane. All points are in instant communication
with a plane which operates light-speeds faster than our space-time.
Now for the mechanism of space hyperspace coupling. Recall the
membrane in the neutron star which could wobble up/down and left/right.
The eyeball has the same capability of articulation.
And even though the eye itself does not move forward and back, the
focus of the eye can move forward and back. Just as the outside
of the neutron star does not vary in distance fron us --but the
inner part changes in apparent distance with variations fall of
matter into the star. That makes the eye and the neutron star an
infold/outfold pair, both of which articulate in three dimensions.
The eye on earth gazes at the star in the heavens, each with complimentary
The design of your body is no accident of chance. Your body's vertical
axis is the Axis of Space, from
head to toe. The articulating head and eyes (pun intended) represent
ability to modulate space-time; the arms model the wave
nature of space-time; and the legs demonstrate the capacity to structure
matter in space-time
Autonomic Time Axis, literally
runs in one ear and out the other, and also through the outstretched
arms. This axis generates the periodicity of the body --and of the
heavenly bodies-- without requiring conscious monitoring. This periodicity
determines how long various types of waves spend in hyperspace before
they return to modify space-time.
The Axis of Consciousness is
at 90 degrees to both the autonomic and space axes. It comes out
through the eyes from the back of the head, balanced on the nose.
Our consciousness sits astride two brains (branes). Our left brain
is the highest classic interpreter of space-time, our right is the
quantum modulator/creator of space-time The universe is like an
AM/FM signal broadcast from the right brain. The left brain being
the cosmic receiver.
THE MIRROR PLANE
We can now explain the cosmic observations showing a relatively
recent increase in the rate of expansion of the universe. The
puzzle was why this accelerated expansion should coincidentally
be taking place around the time we humans have the technology to
detect the increase. The solution is that apparent size of the universe
is a function of increasing consciousness. Expansion of consciousness
in hyperspace produces expansion of space-time.
now the good news for Louis Pasteur. The location of those right-handed
amino acids to match the left-handed ones in living tissues.
They are out there in hyperspace. They are the concept structures
of amino acids, and they are right-handed. So they produce left-handed
counterparts in space-time Only living tissue concept structures
are handed. Because non-living substance is mostly symmetrical,
but life is handed.
Here's another example: most people are right-handed. Why? There
is no credible evolutionary explanation based on natural selection.
Indeed, chimpanzees, our closest relatives are ambidextrous. Once
again, only the higher form of life is handed. Humans are the peak
and center of creation.
When we look in a mirror, we perceive something that only humans
can fully appreciate. Lower animal orders are oblivious to it's
existence, only the peak of the evolutionary tree can see the mirror
world. Humans are asymmetrical. Because asymmetry is the trait of
life -especially higher life. Without asymmetry --the positive and
negative energy would have simply canceled each other and life would
stop. Asymmetry is the growth factor in the universe.
The a priori amino acid in the mirror is a concept. The universe
is hologram founded on concepts like this at higher dimensions.
Even today, the mind continues to unfold new concepts into reality.
An automobile is a set of mental concepts turned into physical reality.
A rule book of driving codes is another concept turned reality --and
enforced by laws. Similarly, the whole universe has unfolded out
of an infolded concept structure --and the resulting creation is
likewise regulated by laws of nature.
to this model of the universe, are the two helices spinning out
on opposite sides of a central point. The Now center point is a
pivot point between concept and reality. This is the center point
creates and is created by the future and the past.
That Now zone is found wherever a mirror plane exists.
there is also a mirror on the surface of the water in a lake. There,
the image of a tree standing by the lake shore may be mirrored in
the water. If the wind is disturbing the surface of the water, it
will show branches above and quivering branches below. It's not
a true image of a tree. It's all branches.
A real tree has branches and roots. But as the roots are hidden
from view, we often neglect them when we form a mental image of
a tree. The Mirror Plane splits this Tree horizontally into branches
and roots. Eureka! From out of the Now, Mind branches above, and
matter Roots below. On opposite sides of a Mirror Plane. The roots
of our universe are hidden like the roots of the tree.
