The cover picture is an unabashed taunt.
The Pool kisses no ring.
There was no Big Bang, except on TV, which I don’t and will never, ever watch, ever.
No dispute that there is a lot of hot and cold, angry, visible junk in the universe. Also no doubt that it passed through a Higgs Gate at some point.
Binary Dimension Theory requires no Big Bangs. There are also no Quantum Fluctuations, Afterglow Lights, or Dark Energy as the above diagram depicts.
I still really like the diagram though. Decidedly bitchin’
Back to reality.
The entire Universe being composed of Dimension, the first “thing” was a Higgs Chain, not The Mother Of All Explosions.
Why? Because that’s how fractals start, with really simple parts that form repeating structures that become immensely complex systems, like our Universe. This is easy stuff, really. No need to overthink it.
So you may be thinking, gee, a Big Bang is stuck in my brain, and I can’t shake it out. Now what?
It’s OK. You are in The Pool.
Just keep treading, you will be fine.
