River, as you most referring to the sausage/slice model of the universe of write4, page#1: Please Register or Log in to view the hidden image! it is definitely not 0ne dimensional.What this model teaches is the left to right, one directional MOVEMENT * through time. One could imagine another such universe, or this one perched at a different orientation, going off into infinite time at a different angle, universes arranged like petals on a flower, even. A feature of time though, that Write4U, and his is illustrator, have in common with the expanding sphere model is : time itself is non-directional ------------- timespace can be traversed in any direction is fundamental. the 1st dimension shares uncreated infinity with energy. --energytime *as contrasted with the expanding sphere model, which, starting form a central point in time in all directions (as it appears in our sky) has all matter expand, move in all directions into the future. Thus arriving at the conclusion that 4/5 of the universe is now beyond our 13.8 billion years horizon in the sky.
