THE INFINITE UNIVERSE How do we define East, West, North and South on the planet earth? The sun rises and sets in a particular direction. Therefore, these directions have been defined as East, West followed by North and South. These directions are taken as parameters for many probe journeys. In fact East, West, North, South are in relation to the earth positioning in the vast universe. The universe consists of billions of galaxies, known and unknown. Thus, the sun may not be a guideline to indicate East, West. Therefore, the directions have to be set in totality concerning the universe. This alone will lead for more discoveries. The questions arising instantly in mind are whether any living exists on other planets, what would be climatic conditions, what resources may be available and so on. The earth alone definitely cannot be taken as having living beings in the sprawling universe. Perhaps the living on other planets may be dependent on other elements than oxygen and may have suitable systems operating to adjust the environment. For knowing this and many other unknown factors, we have to define universal directions, taking into account its parameters. Some say the universe is finite but it is not bound. Since it is not bound, it cannot be finite. One thing is certain that various vibrations, contractions and expansions of existing planets and considering springing up of other new galaxies, the space required to accommodate them will be huge, beyond imagination. Since time factor is unknown for these developments, the universe has to be limitless i.e. infinite. Further, due to perfect calculated understanding of attraction and repulsion depending upon the distance, size and weight of various planets, the galaxies move on without collusion to be noticed at least on the earth planet and make us worry. In fact, the universe must be moving on set calculations, as the system just cannot afford any dislocation. There is no room for uncertainty or probability in operation to cause calamity for day to day life. Our present mathematics has limitations, but we cannot do away with it, until a better system is innovated. To give an example, a square of any figure is certainly more than addition by the same figure. Then how come 1 square = 1, 1+1=2 and 2 square=4, 2+2=4. In the first, the square is less than addition and in case of second, addition is equals square. Therefore there is something at the root to examine. Once new system is in sight, we might be able to come a bit closer towards the nature and in turn the universe. It appears that the universe- direction is circular as it is evident that anything thrown or moves is operational in circular direction. The prominent example is when even a drop of water falls in any accumulated water i.e. lake, pond, river, sea or on ground, it has circular movement. A ball thrown also sets itself in circular spinning. There is one more thought. On a pilot plant scale, we may try to check the earth movement in relation to universe and locate the most convenient point for friendly climatic conditions. This is dependent on the study of defy- Page 2 gravitation elements. As of now, there are some geographical regions, which are not fortunate and have to face extreme conditions i.e. hot, cold and thus they are deprived of natural comfort living. If a positive discovery of changed earth location based on the pilot plant scale is achieved, we will render good service to humanity on the earth planet. Another thing, if we achieve to defy gravitation, we might save on energy sources. How to defy the gravitation? The solution lies in extracting gravitation defiance elements from environment. We need not worry about our landing as the universe is in infinite suspended frame without any resting platform. Dr.Albert Einstein stated the universe is four dimensional instead of three of Newton's world. If we want to draw the universe on a bigger canvas, one more dimension will have to be thought of and that is quantum energy i.e. everything in one capsule. Unless an assessment formula for quantum energy is evolved, it would be difficult to understand the universe with its contents in order to explore discoveries. Dr.Einstein’s energy equation E=mc2 is famous which is after defying gravitation impact on earth and thus lesser the gravitation, the more energy elsewhere in the universe. Hence E=mc2 cannot be taken as a standard for other objects where gravitation range may be in variance. The present Theory of Relativity is based on the earth planet condition which requires to be extended to have reference in totality of universal functions so as to lay permanent foundation blocks in scientific field.
