Unified Space/Time Indicated by Supernova and Other Data

The “most profound mystery” of Type Ia supernova redshift indicates a Unified Space/Time. Basic principle states that scale R of Universe is related to age t by R = ct. Gravity then requires that GM = tc^3, where M is mass. We predict and . Define Z by . Therefore . When light of redshift Z was emitted, c was faster by sqrt{1 + Z}. Prediction precisely fits “accelerating” redshift curve. Corroborating evidence comes from the solar record. Standard solar model predicts that when Earth was formed Sun shone with barely 75% of present luminosity. With c change included, solar output is constant for billions of years. Two entirely different sets of data show that c has changed in exactly the amount predicted by GM = tc^3.

Observation circumstances
Data from Supernova Cosmology Project and High-Z Supernova Search initially interpreted as cosmic acceleration due to a repulsive “dark energy.” Corroborating data shows that v/c appears to accelerate because c has been slowing down. Supporting data from the WMAP spacecraft (uniformity in the microwave background) and observations of massive primordial galaxies also indicates a higher early value of c.

If one understands this observation correctly, it would seem that it proposes that the Relativity Principle of the universal constancy of the speed of light, *c*, is in error if stated for all spacetime instances, or at least only approximately valid, after a certain time instance $t_f$.

Is one single set of observations sufficient to conclude that all the other multitudes of physical and cosmological observations made are, or were, incorrect?
