In my book, I suggest among other ideas that our universe is one of infinitely many, each of limited space and time in its extent, being born and dying according to definable standard processes.

I had to develop a small nomenclature for this vision, including the following:

Exogravitation: the simple, universal laws of gravitation already known, applied to larger structures; I also use the term ‘exograv’ for short;

Motherverse: for lack of an existing term, that would be the ultimate structure containing infinitely many universes, with the parenthetical caveat that, as Hubble and his team discovered in the 1920s, the Milky Way galaxy is not the entire universe, and in fact as scientists came to understand, there are even larger structures (e.g., walls of galaxies). Analogously, our universe is not the only or largest structure; and it is premature to posit whether there may be larger structures composed of something like ‘walls of universes’ or whatever within the ultimate Motherverse. Note: I use the terms universe and cosmos interchangeably.

Gravitation Elements: the dark matter or sub-sub-particles that are common throughout the motherverse.

Go-Dots, Godots: At times I may refer to these gravitational elements as go-dots or godots (not from Samuel Beckett’s 1948/9 play Waiting For Godot, but from my 2003 SF novels Mars the Divine and Orwell in Orbit 2084, in my Empire of Time SF series, where I first started processing these cosmological ideas; and the term godot is my own little nickname for the round game-pieces in the Japanese game of Go).

These godots do not possess attributes of ‘matter’ or ‘energy.’ Godots are infinitesimal, even in comparison with sub-atomic particles. Godots cannot really be called particles, nor energy; they only possess one characteristic, which is of a minute gravitational charge. This attraction-force causes them, in random Brownian Motion (analogous to molecules and small debris in a pond), to clump together in larger and larger units I call accretion spheres (C-1, C-2, and C-3). Of these, C-2 and C-3 embody the so-called Big Bang of the Standard Model. The letter C stands for ‘Critical.’ There are three major critical stages in this expanded, more complete and understandable Standard Model. The so-called Big Bang no longer comes uniquely out of nowhere, but has a standard before, during, and after phase as I will explain. The Big Bang (still a good term) is now part of a standard, explainable mechanism that happens infinitely many times across eternities of space in the motherverse.

Accretion Spheres. As already mentioned, the vast spherical shapes (universes, in the Motherverse) form out of dark matter (gravitation elements, or godots). These godots accrete by random Brownian Motion until sufficiently dense and heavy. At the C-1 critical phase, a sufficiently massive accretion sphere collapses along lines of the Standard Model to explode in a Big Bang that initiates a universe. These spheres go through three moments of change that I will describe (see the text) as C-1, C-2, and C-3 transitions, where C-3 is the Big Bang moment.

C-1 (Critical-1) is the initial accretion sphere when enough gravitational elements have clumped together.

C-2 (Critical-2) occurs when the overall gravitational force of C-1 is robust and overwhelming enough to cause an inward collapse. The C-1 sphere shrinks suddenly and *implosively* to a tiny, compressed point or sphere or dot. This is C-2, a moment that cannot last because the forces of implosion vectoring from all directions toward a single focal point are unsustainable or irresistible. C-2 explodes outward in all directions from the combined energies of the C-1 collapse and the C-2 compression, causing Big Bang C-3.

C-3 (Critical-3) is the final creative moment when the forces of implosion reverse in a massive *explosion* of unimaginable power, spewing visible and invisible debris in all directions (a Big Bang).

Output of the C-3 event or explosion will include massive clumps of godot material (black holes) pulling visible matter and energy along to spin and form standard galaxies, as well as stray bits of intermediate material, and thirdly, loose gravitational element debris we have found in the form of so-called Dark Matter. More on Dark Matter shortly.

Cosmopause: This is the outer limit and the end of a universe’s life. It is the limit of its expansion and attenuation. By analogy think of the heliopause, that theoretical sphere at which the aggregate gravitational force of a solar system loses its ability to act upon an escaping object.

Summing up: a typical universe, like our own, goes through a life cycle that I describe, from a Critical (1-2-3) beginning (Big Bang is part of it) toward our currently observed stage of accelerating expansion. The universe is constantly attenuating as it expands, until it reaches a diameter I call the Cosmopause. At the Cosmopause, the universe disintegrates (better: vanishes) like a bubble, meaning that its foundational dark matter is all that is left, but not as an integral gravitational entity.

The residual gravitational matter (godot raw material) then drifts randomly in the larger motherverse, amid similar debris of infinitely many other universes. Some of these eventually clump to form other universes and thus endlessly reiterating the life cycle.
