The surface area of the entire spherical background of the sky will be found to be the same as the total surface areas of all the protons encapsulated within.
This principle, if true, is a great tool for finding the radius of the universe as well as revealing a new paradigm for cosmologists to ponder. Currently, the radius of the universe is estimated by utilizing red shift, age and light speed, none of which can be relied upon over a dozen or so billion years. For example, it may not yet be certain that the universe is open, closed or flat. What if the speed of light is being determined by the rate the universe is expanding, continuously stretching the fabric of space-time at C? Can we know the answers by observing galaxy appearances from ten billion years ago?
Currently accepted constants:
Protons in the universe (Nedd): 10^80 +/-
Radius of Proton: 0.875 x 10^-18 Km +/-
Radius of Universe: 4.4 x 10^23 Km +/-
Area of Sphere: 4pi r^2
The reason for the conjecture is the possibility that both surfaces, in the beginning, were one and the same thing, and that they are at all times one and the same because the changing fabric of space-time, our standard of measure, is imperceptibly and simultaneously changing many of our physical constants.
