GRB 090423

The first article I saw on GRB 090423 was dated April 1, but as outrageous as it seems from the point of view of Dark Age cosmology, I knew it was real. After all, Louise has been explaining for years that the early universe contained large black holes. This new GRB boggles the mind, smashing previous records with a whopping redshift of 8.2.

Thanks again for the link. Since our oppressors are going down in flames, we are doing quite well. I hope the latest post makes a positive difference.

There are two approaches to the formation of structures.

In the conformistic approach based on slightly deformed Minkowski space as the arena of physics structures are formed gradually as Robertson Walker cosmology develops perturbations.

In second approach- about which TGD is example about- structures are there all the time as the topology of space-time sheets and become gradually visible.

In TGD framework cosmic strings- space-time surfaces which are extremely thin string like objects- dominate in the very early cosmology and are basically responsible for the formation of structures. During cosmic expansion they gradually transform to thicker magnetic flux tube like structures carrying weaker magnetic fields.

The microscopic description of black holes in TGD relies on string like objects. The amount of mass inside a sphere containing tangled string is indeed naturally proportional to its radius.

Although strings as fundamental objects are replaced by 3-D light-like surfaces in TGD Universe, string like structures are predicted to appear in all length scales - even nuclear physics in TGD Universe relies on nuclear strings formed by nucleons connected by color bonds with quark and antiquark at their ends- and can be related directly to the existing physics.

This explains also the existence of primordial magnetic fields, which are a complete mystery in the first approach.

Hi Louise and Matti. Yes, there does seem to be a clear divide on structure formation between what I would call the correct quantum cosmologies, and the conventional classical approaches. Presumably the next few years will turn up piles of such evidence.
