Imagine a cosmos that * acts* like this:

and, simultaneously, * acts* like all of these, too (…and more):

Imagine a limitless number of universes each of whose circumference is infinity, each of which vibrates at a slightly different frequency, and where those infinite circumferences are continuous with their interiors, all eternally recycling from universal edge to universal interior. Now, imagine that each universal circumference is ** synonymous** with every other universe’s circumference, even though they’re all of different volume and size, but identical mass. That is the cosmos in

*A Gathering of Rebels*.

Of course, for most of us, it’s easier to think of separate universes like this, →

rather than to think of all of them occupying the same space, which would, if we could visualize infinite spheres occupying identical space (which we can’t, of course), turn into a kind of sparkling muddy gray (or maybe counter-frequency lucid or something) if seen from a position beyond infinity.
