Our inspiration of our proposed cosmological model is based on Johan Van Manen’s
schema and the description of a ‘double’-‘closed’ Universe of String Theory. Quantum
Geometry of String Theory claims that the physical properties of the elemental
components of our ‘closed’ Universe are the same for a Universe whose circular
dimension has a radius R with a Universe having a radius 1/R (where the value 1 means
1 time the Planck’s Length that is 1.616*10-33 cm). According to this theory we live in
a ‘double’-‘closed’ Universe where when the one is expanding, the other is shrinking.
In particular, the resulting ‘double’ Universe is similar with Johan Van Manen’s
schema consists of two hyperspheres: the ‘outer’ hypersphere that represents the ‘large’
Universe and the small ‘full’ hypersphere represents the parallel ‘small’ Universe.
Between them exists an ‘empty’ hypersphere as a 4D hole. At the beginning of time the
radii of the ‘small’ and the ‘outer’ hypersphere were equal to Planck’s Length (R= (1/R) =1)
and the ‘empty’ hypersphere was nullified. The ‘Big Bang’ happened as an
expansion of a 4D hole that drifted the two hyperspheres: the radius (1/R) of the small
‘full’ hypersphere began to decrease while the radius (R) of the ‘outer’ hyperspher
began to increase forming our ‘sensate’ Universe. This expansion led the ‘outer’
hypersphere radius to reach (almost) an infinite value, the small ‘full’ hypersphere to
(almost) disappear, while the ‘empty’ hypersphere got an (almost) infinite radius and
occupied the inner space of the ‘outer’ hypersphere. The final result is a 3D
hypersurface of a hypersphere with an (almost) zero curvature that is constantly
expanding and represents the ‘closed’ 3D Universe we perceive.
