Theory #3: Symmetry Bubble

The universe is symmetrical infinitely. What I mean by this is that electrons orbit the nucleus of an atom as the planets orbit our Sun. There are galaxies in the universe as (theoretically) there are universes in the multiverse. What if there was a HUGE multiverse encasing multiverses that hold smaller multiverses that encase universes that hold galaxies encasing molecules that hold atoms that hold bosons and fermions that hold quarks? Then what if they go on infinitely in both directions (bigger and smaller) ? This is my idea of “symmetry.” There are many ways our universe/multiverse (if there is one)/ “mega-multiverse (s) are the same as the smallest elementary particles.  That is why I think the universe could be “symmetrical.” I also think this is also one of my favorite theories, although my “ghost universes” theory, in my opinion, is the best. Now I will share with you some similarities of anywhere from the “mega-multiverse” to the smallest muon neutrino.
Similarities of Different Scales in the Universe:
  • Planets orbit suns as electrons orbit the nucleus of an atom
  • Tons of plasma burn in stars as protons and neutrons make the nucleus
  • Galaxies form in chains as atoms chain into molecules
  • Stars explode into supernovas as particles decay and cause nuclear fission
  • The universe encases galaxies as molecules form structures
How I Thought of this Theory:
I was with my brother and our two friends and when my mom brought out this tank with bubbles and a “bubble wand”. No one ended up really using it but I tried it once and a weird pair of bubbles that looked like one was encased in the other. Then I thought that universes and multiverses could encase each other. That is my theory of symmetry.

  1. This is terrific, Mitchell!

    You write: "Planets orbit suns as electrons orbit the nucleus of an atom." There is a name for that theory of the atom: The Bohr model. (Check out for a nice overview). There are two incredible things about the Bohr model: 1. It does a great job at correctly predicting certain observable characteristics of an atom; and 2. It is, nevertheless, completely wrong. Do you think you could come up with a theory explaining why the world is so very different at small scales (like electrons) as compared to large scales (like solar systems, galaxies, or even multiverses)? There is already a theory about that – quantum mechanics, which you’ve written about in your earlier entries – but as you know, it’s a work in progress, and it could really use smart people like you to come up with better ways to understand the universe.

    If you’re interested, here are some related subjects to investigate:

    * The plum pudding model
    * The Geiger-Marsden experiment or “gold foil” experiment (one of the great moments in the history of science)
    * Schrödinger's cat
    * Heisenberg uncertainty principle

    Have fun!!!
