"Good jump Fantasy! Let's fly in on thruster power for a closer look at this new exo-planet. Meanwhile, start the calculations for the next jump in case we need to leave here in a hurry too."

Fantasy responds, " Thanks. That Vulcan repelling beam put an angular momentum on our jump, but I knew it would just take us farther out from the star, so I decided it was safer to make the jump anyway."

"Good call. Fire the thrusters, and move us in!"

Bill asks, "Where are we?"

"We left in such a hurry again, you never said where we were going. and again I don't even know what I'm sketching."

"We're at the edge of your galaxy closest to mine."

"And you picked this one because the exo-planet is in the Golidlocks zone?"

"Yes, that plus the fact that it's a convenient jumping off point to make our next jump to my galaxy."

"Cool. I've been thinking about the Steady State Theory you were describing when we were back at Vulcan, and I have a question. If particles are constantly forming, and adding to the matter that the Big Bang dispersed, why hasn't the universe completely filled up with matter by now?"

"At the center of a galaxy eventually forms what you call a black hole. More and more matter gets drawn in over time, until the center becomes so dense, so tightly packed, matter/energy ceases to be able to resonate. The center of a black hole becomes more and more stable, and once its resonance stops, matter ceases to exist. The matter which is constantly formed in time-space, constantly vanishes through black holes."

"Well, I'll admit your theory avoids the singularity of a Big Bang, and the singularity of black holes."


Fantasy interupts, "The exoplanet is now straight ahead."

"There, I have a visual on the monitor, It has two moons," Fantasy reports.

Fantasy adds, "I'm getting signs of life. There are no large cities, but there are large trees which are inhabited."

"See if you can get a visual on a tree."

Fantasy responds, "I have an inhabited tree on the monitors."

Fantasy continues, "Here's another view of the tree."

Father Flash remarks, "Seems to be merchants everywhere in this tree."

Fantasy states, "I have a closer view of a merchant's stall on the monitors."

Lord Anubis observes, "Interesting how we gods evolve on different planets, These people seem to be animists, yet the ancient Greek god Plutus, whom ye call Mammon, apparently has the upper hand here, just as on Earth."

Father Flash responds, "Yes, interesting. This culture feels like the animist culture on Pandora, which is only 3 light years from Earth. This animist belief must be more widespread than I imagined. The spiritual life of these people may be quite removed from the secular authority responsible for all the advertising. That would be much like Earth."

Lord Anubis reacts, "That's your view of Earth today, but when We gods ruled Egypt, We let the people have their bazaars and marketplaces, but here everywhere is a market. Each market stall is a temple to worldly goods. The god who has come to be identified with wealth and worldly goods is Plutus,. . Yea, only a land where Plutus is chief god would encourage such a world covered everywhere with temples to worldly goods."

Lord Anubis continues, "Earth is becoming covered in advertising everywhere just like this planet, as Plutus wins out not just here, but on Earth too. My hope is that, because I've returned to announce the End of the Journey of Millions of Years, people will again appreciate the value of the spiritual when they see the spirits of the mummies under my watch return to their genetically resurrected bodies through the medium of the spiritual in art."

Germain enthuses, "Whoever is in charge, it looks promising for my business. Let's fly in for a closer look."

High Priestess Vishnuh Vendetta objects, "This is obviously an advanced culture, and we haven't been invited here, so we must look like invaders to them. I insist we leave immediately before we get into more trouble!"

"These people don't appear to have the sdvanced weapons we faced on Vulcan. I'll take full responsibility for any risk," Germain rejoins.

Bill says, "I'm interested in this exoplanet, but I'm just as interested in your view of the acceleration of the expansion of the universe! How do you explain the acceleration? Is it all down to Dark Energy?"

Germain responds, "Another myth. There's no need to imagine a Dark Energy.Your scientists are making two fundamental mistakes: First they misinterpret the red shift of distant galaxies, and second, they don't understand the limits of gravitational fields."

"But the red shift of gallaxies proves it's expanding and accelerating! What do you mean they misinterpret it?"

"The red shift of distant galaxies is also due to a quantum phenomenon, not just a doppler effect, or a relativistic effect, so it doesn't entirely indicate the galaxies are expanding."

"But it's not just the red shifts that prove the expansion is accelerating! Type 1a supernovae all have the same intrinsic luminosity, which means that their observed luminosity can be used to estimate their distance from Earth and the remnants of nearly all type 1a supernovae are at least 15 % further away than the standard model of the Universe predicts."

"The drops in luminosity in supernovae in distant galaxies are also due to the same quantum effect. To the extent they are accelerating, it can be explained by the miscalculation of the gravitational field, and the forces acting against it."

"What do you mean a quantum effect?"

"Well, to start, your whole model of a particle is backwards."

"What do you mean we have it backwards? We've been able to split the atom and harvest nuclear energy! How can a model which allows that kind of science be backwards?"

Lord Anubis speaks. "I can answer that from my experience. During the reign of the Ptolemy dynasty Egyptian astronomers were able to explain eclipses of the sun, and predict when they would occur. That was brilliant science at the time, however it was based on a geo-centric model of our solar system, which placed the Sun revolving around the Earth. Totally backwards of the Earth revoloving around the sun! They they had to imagine there were loops in the orbits called epicycles in order to fudge the math to make it work well enough to predict eclipses, "

"Good example, Lord Anubis. Yes, your uncertainty principle explaining the electron's position, and your new idea of dark energy, are like the epicycles of your current science."

"So what is the model of the atom you learned?"

"You imagine a microscopic particle, or syanding wave which you call an electron spins around a nucleus, and creates a field that's seemingly infinitely large. That's like imagining the tail wags the dog. An electron is a resonance between two sets of locii. One set is what you're familiar with, and call an electron shell; the other set is a huge shell at a cosmic distance. Time-space is expanding and contracting between them in a type of complex spherical vortex wave (if the vortex had the opposite spin, it would be a positron)."

"At its extreme of contraction the vortex wave arrives at a node in the locii of points you call the electron shell, and that compaction of time-space is what you call the electron. Then time-space expands around that point until the expansion reaches the outer shell, whereupon it contracts again until the electron node forms at another point in the inner shell. That's why you have trouble predicting where the electron will be next - what you think of as the electron particle or standing wave isn't there until it arrives again."

"Interesting theory, but what about Schroedinger's equations? They predict where electrons will be."

"I'll get to Schroedinger in a minute, but first consider this: Your physicists imagine that electrons orbiting heavier elements have to speed up, to avoid being pulled in by the attraction of the large number of protons. They're calculating it must be the case, based on the Rutherford-Bohr model. But why would electrons speed up just because they find themselves around a heavy element? In fact, why would electrons orbit any atom? An asteroid approaching a planet has to miss it by a certain amount to be captured in orbit. Come in too directly and the asteroid just crashes into the surface. Why don't electrons mostly just crash into atoms, or miss completely, and seldom orbit them? Because the electron is completely different than you've imagined!"

"We say it's because different rules of physics apply at the micro scale of atoms, compared to the macro scale of planets."

"You only need two sets of laws because your Standard Model of the atom is so backwards. Once you can visualize the outer shell, you can realize everthing exists both at the micro and macro scale simultaneously. That's actually why every bit of matter exists as both a wave and a particle, and because we realize that we only need one set of our laws of physics to account for both the micro and macro realms. "

"Why would there be an outer shell? Why an outer limit where the wave stops expanding, and starts contracting?"

"One aspect of the waveform riding on a fundamental particle frequency is that the wave length of the spherical vortex wave becomes smaller and smaller as it approaches the center. You can see that in the spacing between electron orbital shells in hydrogen, which are one vortex wave length apart. Conversely the wave length becomes longer and longer the farther out you look. Eventually the wave length becomes so long, it looks more and more flattened, until it approaches being a straight line. When the wave becomes a flat line it can't propagate, so that determines the outer limit. The wave then has lost all forward momentum and because time-space has been stretched like a spring, it then begins its contraction cycle."

"If I understand you, you're suggesting an electrostatic field is a spherical vortex wave consisting of ezpansion and contraction of time-space, which has to reach an outer shell and return. That would mean it has to pass through planets and stars to get there, but an electrostatic field can be blocked by something as slight as a Faraday cage!"

Germain replies, "Here's an illustration from your Wikipedia, which shows that although an electrostatic field is canceled within a Faraday cage due to movement of electrons within the cage walls, the electrostatic field, i.e. the electron's sherical vortex wave, emerges on the otherside of the cage, just as our theory predicts."

Fantasy interrupts the conversation, "The gravimeters just pinned. We're locked in a tractor beam pulling us backwards."

Fantasy continues, "I'm using the graviscope to locate the source of the beam."

"See if you can get a visual."

Fantasy replies, "I have it on the monitors. It's a Corellian Cruiser. It must have been lurking behind that moon."

"Pirates! The old military hardware dating back to Emperor Palpatine was sold as scrap by the Second Imperium and a lot was bought by pirates."

Fantasy has gone into the ships hold and brings out a crate labeled "Primitive Weapons."

Germain explains, "The pirates raid nearby galaxies, and our authorities ignore them as long as they don't raid in our galaxy."

"What will they do to do us?"

Germain replies, "They haven't got us yet, Bill. I still have a few tricks up my sleeve."

Vishnuh objects, "If we had been invited to this exoplanet, Germain, they would have warned us about the pirates. Again you've taken full responsibility, so I can't wait to see how you're going to get us out of this trap,"

Germain orders, "Everyone move to the front of the ship. We're going to depressurize the rear compartment, so we can open the rear hatch."

The ship is slowly drawn closer toward the pirate ship's bay.

Germain explains, "That tractor beam wants to pull in our mass, and we're going to send them some in advance of us. Their smart beam can neutralize all modern ray weapons, but it's not programmed to recognize a weapon this primitive."

Fantasy opens the crate, and takes out a Stinger missle.

Germain elaborates, "That stinger will detonate on impact. If Fantasy can hit the bay, the tractor beam should automatically shut down to protect the bay. At least this has worked before, and pirates don't have the Imperial network sending out software updates when vulnerabilities are discovered in their obsolete hardware."

Germain continues, "As soon as I see the gravimeter fall. I'll make the jump Fantasy has programmed."

Bill fears, "What if they know this trick and launch an anti-missle intercept device? Don't tell me we're going to have to hide in you smuggling bays! What will they do to us if they catch us?"

Fantasy takes aim at the tractor beam control room...

and fires the Stinger.
