(2023 March 24 ... April 15): Latest research paper Nature’s Entropy-Lowering Processes is currently under review.

Meanwhile: Tyranny in Canada! The persecution of Pastor Artur Pawlowski. Listen to the incredible first-hand account: Just Right Program #802 (2023-3-16)

(2023 February): DSSU research article currently being prepared deals with entropy ... with a focus on Nature's remarkable entropy-lowering mechanism.

(2023 January 16): Who would believe it! An American official holiday for communism and its foremost promoter. Clearly the lessons of history have been ignored … all the while the repression, and enslavement, continues.

(2023 January):  DSSU Cosmology is now into its 22nd year on the Internet —the revolution continues.

(2022 November 11): Remembrance Day in Canada (Veterans Day in USA, Remembrance Sunday in Britain). Take a moment to reflect on the Allied scheme for genocide: The Morgenthau Plan.

"After World War II ended, some in the Allied coalition wanted to crush the already-prostrate German nation for standing up to its banker-dominated New World Order agenda. Drafted by the Soviets and initially scrapped, it was resurrected after the war for the sole purpose of genociding as many Germans as possible." –The Barnes Review Vol.28, No.6 (2022 Nov) page 54

(2022 August 30): Press Release (2022 August).

(2022 August 20): The 20-year quest for the ultimate truth has paid off … We now know how the energy of the Universe is continuously replenished.
The details are revealed in the Open Access Article “Mainspring Mechanism of the Universe” published in the International Journal of Cosmology, Astronomy and Astrophysics. Presented is the four-process mechanism that drives and sustains the grand Cosmic system —now and forever. Hi-resolution REPRINT.

Meanwhile … the decline of Western Civilization continues. Let us not forget Ayn Rand’s warning:

When you see that in order to produce, you need to obtain permission from men who produce nothing – When you see that money is flowing to those who deal, not in goods, but in favors – When you see that men get richer by graft and by pull than by work, and your laws don’t protect you against them but protect them against you – When you see corruption being rewarded and honesty becoming a self-sacrifice – You may know that your society is doomed.” –A. Rand, Atlas Shrugged, 1957

(2022 August 12): In the Just Right Media program #771, Robert Metz reveals one of the great secrets of our Universe. The Universe was never created! It had no beginning! … The elegant and profound reasoning substantiating this claim is presented in the fourth-quarter segment of the August 11th podcast.

(2022 August 1): The third DSSU book is ready for publication. Particulars: Laws of Physics 20th-Century Scientists Overlooked

(2022 July 1): Current project: The third DSSU book is nearing completion.

(2022 February 13-15): Dresden Hellstorm days of remembrance. Ask yourself, what could possibly motivate a people to machinate and implement the total destruction of the most beautiful and cultural city on the planet? Search deeply into your inner self, and reflect on the mind-polluting power of indoctrination.
Remembering Dresden 77 years after the terror bombing.

Olbers’ Paradox Resolved for the Infinite Non-Expanding Universe
, American Journal of Astronomy & Astrophysics Vol.4, No.1, (2016 January). Abstract & links. Reprint PDF.
● “The man accredited with discovering universe expansion did not believe that the universe was expanding. Hubble was convinced that the key evidence, the cosmic redshift, was caused by some other factor, something more fundamental than mere expansion.”
● “With the recent discovery of a new cosmic-redshift mechanism, and its theoretical validation, it turns out that Hubble was right.”
● Explains how “an infinite, non-expanding, perpetually regenerating universe" is able to predict a dark night sky.

(Published in New Scientist, May 22, 2004)

"The big bang today relies on a growing number of hypothetical entities, things that we have never observed-- inflation, dark matter and dark energy are the most prominent examples. Without them, there would be a fatal contradiction between the observations made by astronomers and the predictions of the big bang theory. In no other field of physics would this continual recourse to new hypothetical objects be accepted as a way of bridging the gap between theory and observation. It would, at the least, raise serious questions about the validity of the underlying theory. ..."  continues ...

This website is mainly concerned with revisionism in cosmology. Those of us involved in replacing the unnatural expanding-universe paradigm are aware of the difficulties involved.
   However, other revisionists have unimaginable difficulties. Consider the ongoing persecution of revisionists in other fields of intellectual pursuit: 
"It makes you wonder —about the immense effort being made by State and State-sponsored organizations with budgets of tens of millions of dollars and thousands of employees and associates to smother and punish these few men and women. Every punishing instrument imaginable is used, every vicious slander conceivable, every flagrant and pervasive form of censorship that law allows, including the imprisonment of simple writers for thought crimes against the State. ... Makes you wonder." —Bradley R. Smith (2011)

"Discussing truth is so controversial, so dangerous … In most of the world it is simply illegal.” Gordon Duff, Senior Editor, Veterans Today (2011)

"The further a society drifts from truth the more it will hate those who speak it." –George Orwell

DEDICATION: This website is solemnly dedicated to those individuals who have conducted research in their chosen field and have informed others of their inquiries and suffered the consequences when subpoenaed by the Inquisition or some variant thereof. The dedication extends to those individuals currently imprisoned, and those facing trial and persecution simply for exercising their basic human right of freedom of expression supposedly granted to them under the UN Charter of Human Rights.
"Every year, hundreds of writers and other literary professionals around the world are imprisoned, prosecuted, persecuted, attacked, threatened, forced into exile or even murdered as a result of their work."

ALSO: Be aware of the continuing threat to our precious freedom of expression on the Internet. The threat is serious and relentless. It is described as “… the formal effort to mimic Communist China’s system of Internet censorship.” –
More information on threats to internet freedom:

Reporter-journalist Arthur Topham, Canadian victim of the Inquisition, arrested (2012) for posting his research.
“Arthur Topham faces prison time for daring to speak his mind on his own website, as he faces criminal charges under Canada’s hate crimes legislation contained in Section 318 - 320 of the criminal code.” –Rights and Freedoms Bulletin Issue No. 204 Feb 7, 2015.
VERDICT: Arthur Topham found “guilty” AND “not guilty” of hate speech by a brain-dead jury!
 –Dr. James Sears, reporting in “The world’s Largest Anti-Marxist Publication” (Issue 2015 December, NOTE: This website has been taken down by court order pending appeal. --2020)

Free-speech crusader
Bill Whatcott defies British Colombia Human Rights Tribunal efforts to impose gender language tyranny.

“I have no intention on wasting money on a lawyer for the Morgane Oger vs Bill Whatcott case, as human rights tribunals are kangaroo courts and the odds of … getting justice in these biased tribunals is next to zero.” –2017 June ( …)

End of free speech in Britain:

A publisher of history books in Britain has reported that “due to new laws in the UK all their books will have to be censored moving forward” to avoid criminal penalties for “inciting racial hatred.” –The Barnes Review (2020 March/April) p77

A hostile jury, by a hasty unanimous verdict, decided that Nationalist Leader Jez Turner deserves to be sent to jail for his critical views! Report (2018-5-15).

British Maverick Psychologist jailed for publishing his research. … “The ambivalence of librarians getting writers imprisoned quite defies comprehension.” –Simon Sheppard (2013)

The repression of free speech in Canada has degenerated to the point where …

■ Freedom advocates, such as Marc Lemire, are censured for merely expressing their reasoned opinions. Freedomsite, whose motto is “Fighting for freedom against the censorship enforcers”, documents the official persecution.
■ A tenured professor has lost his position for revealing his research and views on history. This is unprecedented. Professor Anthony J. Hall at the University of Lethbridge, Alberta, has been suspended (2016 October 5) without pay.
“… Any thinking person should recognize that there is something deeply wrong when a history professor is persecuted for saying we should be able to examine our history.” –Monika Schaefer 2017
■ A publisher/editor, for expressing his reality-based views, has been denied postal services. Dr. James Sears, publisher and editor of Your Ward News was stripped of Canada Post Mail Service by government order (2016 June).
■ A violin teacher and truth revealer, Monika Schaefer, for posting a video (an apology to her dead mother), has been attacked by various so-called community leaders.

The treatment of violinist Monika Schaefer signals the end of our free and democratic society.” –The American Herald Tribune, 2016 Sept

The Persecution of Dr James Sears

■ The "justice" system is being used to suppress opinions: In a legal battle (2018) for freedom of speech in Canada ... the prosecution and silencing of Dr James Sears expected to cost taxpayers $20 million!

“I estimate the Board of Review, police investigating and Crown prosecuting us on criminal matters, will cost the taxpayers over $20 million, assuming no appeals past 2018 (murderers & rapists will walk free as huge blocks of court time bump their cases, causing them to be thrown out).”

The Continuing Struggle for Freedom

A ray of hope in the ongoing struggle for freedom.

In repressive Germany:

Ursula Haverbeck, 89, Sentenced to 14 Months in Jail for Heresy! –2017 November
This amazing 89-year-old woman continues advocating under the dictum: "Only the truth will set you free”.
Mrs. Haverbeck, along with her late husband, founded the education facility Collegium Humanum in 1963, but which was banned by the Marxist thought police in 2008.

Update (2018-5-16): Ursula Haverbeck will celebrate her 90th birthday in a German prison cell. The sprightly grandmother is now serving a two-year prison term without parole merely for stating a sincerely held opinion that is supported by acclaimed academics worldwide!!
“Frau Haverbeck is now sentenced to two years in prison, merely for her peaceful historical research” –The Barnes Review Vol.24, No.5 (Sept/Oct 2018) p71

UPDATE (2019-11): On November 9th (2019), the very day of Ursula Haverbeck’s 91st. birthday, hundreds of German nationalists, patriots and friends, well-wishers and admirers rallied in her support. Report on the Rally to Celebrate Political Prisoner Ursula Haverbeck.

Update (2020-12): This 92-year-old peaceful woman has just been released from jail, having spent 2&1/2 years behind bars, and less than 2 weeks later was in court in Berlin for more charges ...  was again sentenced to prison!!!

INFO on Monika Schaefer's case:
For expressing her opinion on historical events, Canadian citizen Monika Schaefer has been arrested and imprisoned (2018-1-3) in Germany. She had committed no crime. Author Mike Walsh warns potential visitors to Germany to stay away from this dangerous police state. –Merkel Madness Grips Germany, (2018-1-7)
... Found guilty and sentenced to 10 months of imprisonment (time served); her brother Alfred was sentenced to 38 months!! –(2018 November)
UPDATE (2019 August 10): Corruption of justice in Germany continues. Alfred Schaefer Receives 18 Months Additional Prison Time for Defending Himself!  Punished for simply presenting evidence for his own defense in court!

Dynamic Cosmic Cell --The Structural Component of the DSSU

Conrad Ranzan

Published on the Cellular Universe website ( ) 2008 rev2011



Nature presents us with a host of phenomena which appear mostly as chaotic randomness until we select some significant events, and abstract from their particular, irrelevant circumstances so that they become idealized. Only then can they exhibit their true structure in full splendor. –J. M. Jauch [1]



The foundation principle of modern cosmology is the expansion of space, or more properly, the vacuum.

This is true in Big Bang cosmology and  it is true in DSSU cosmology. It is true regardless of how 'space' is defined —whether continuous, or quantized, or geometric, or aether-like. (Since aether permeates all space, it is the preferred term within the context of the DSSU. However, the terms space, vacuum, and aether are often used synonymously.)

But on this common foundation rest two radically different types of universe: The expanding universe  and the non-expanding universe.  Examples of the expanding type include the mytho-religious Big Bang model[2] and the historical Steady State model. An example of the non-expanding type is a cellular universe known as the Dynamic Steady State Universe (the DSSU).

Let me explain the essential difference. In the  expanding universe model space expands universally. While in the non-expanding universe space expands but regionally. In our cellular universe the space medium expands within giant three-dimensional cells. Global expansion versus regional expansion —that is the essential difference.

But there is more. Our cellular universe also has space contraction —space contracts regionally. Space expansion is balanced by space contraction, thereby making it possible to sustain the cosmic cellular structure of the Universe. It is these three factors, the expansion, the contraction, and the balance, that shape the universe. It is these three requisites that determine the ongoing large-scale distribution of matter. The dynamic flow between the regions is, in some ways, analogous to thermal convection cells.

So, a quantitative balance of expansion and contraction means that the Universe is intrinsically (as opposed to phenomenologically) cellularly structured. Remarkably, but not unexpectedly, it also means that the Universe does not expand! ... Furthermore, it means we are dealing with a radically new (as of 2002) cosmology, one that directly challenges the establishment Worldview.

Let us focus on the cell structure. The obvious question is, is the universe really cellular?

Astronomers have for several decades recorded the bubble-like nature of the structure of the observable universe. They note that galaxies are distributed in sheets and filaments surrounding large empty voids. Galaxy concentrations are particularly great at the nodes between bubbles. The galaxy plotters know the cell structure is real, even though it appears rather chaotic.

But a chaotic appearance is not unexpected. A popular on-line encyclopedia warns:


"Some caution is required in describing structures on a cosmic scale because things are not always as they appear to be. Bending of light by gravitation (gravitational lensing) can result in images which appear to originate in a different direction from their real source. This is caused by foreground objects (such as galaxies) curving the space around themselves (as predicted by general relativity), deflecting light rays that pass nearby. ... Weak lensing (gravitational shear) by the intervening universe in general also subtly changes the observed large-scale structure."  –Wikipedia: Large-scale structure of the cosmos (2009/4)


Now please re-read my opening quote.

"Nature presents us with phenomena which appear mostly as chaotic randomness" until, as J.M. Jauch suggests, we select and idealize the significant underlying action. In this spirit, we idealize the regional space dynamics (the vacuum expansion and vacuum contraction). "Only then can they exhibit their true structure in full splendor."

The following composite image represents this idealization.





Idealized dynamic cosmic cell. The animation shows the bulk flow of space (or aether). Space flows from the expanding region (known as a Void) and flows into the contracting regions (known as galaxy clusters). But note, the Void does not grow bigger and the galaxy clusters do not become smaller! (This image explains the balanced flow of aether; the equally important balanced flow of matter is explained later in the text.)

Understand this image and know the reason why our universe does NOT expand.

The idealized Cosmoscape at the top reveals the cellular nature of the universe normally unrecognizable in the vast tangle of interwoven superclusters of galaxies.

Images are not to scale. The galaxies, particularly the supergalaxies at each node, are exaggerated.



The Cell Mechanism: Space Expansion and Contraction

The motion in the animation above represents the bulk flow of aether. Since space expansion is an exponential growth process, the associated motion involves radial acceleration. The acceleration and outward increase in speed  are, of course, greatly exaggerated.

The comoving drift of a test particle starting near the center of an actual cosmic cell takes a very long time —a mind-boggling 150 billion years. The flow is caused by the ongoing emergence of new aether. The rate of this growth, in terms of expansion, is known.  Astronomers have measured it to be in the range of 18 to 20 kilometers per second per million lightyears of distance. In easily understood terms, it means one kilometer of aether grows by about 6.2 centimeters every million Earth years of time. In terms of volume it means one cubic kilometer of the space medium grows by about 186,000 cubic meters every million Earth-years.

The radial flow is caused by the expansion occurring in the Void region (and only in the Void region). The Void is surrounded by a dodecahedral-shaped shell of galaxies. This "shell of galaxies" is, of course, what gives the Cosmic Cell its visible shape.[3]  The dodecahedral form corresponds to the hexagonal representation used for the above two-dimensional image. The flow proceeds into the interface region of adjoining cells and into the galaxy cluster regions —the structural nodes of the structural 'shell.'

And there, in the interface, in the galaxy clusters, space expansion ceases. In fact, it undergoes contraction. The galaxy cluster regions are major dissipaters (consumers or absorbers) of aether.

There is a very real harmony here. Space expansion is balanced by space contraction. Which means, as noted above, the cosmic cell does not grow bigger.

Yes, but what about the galaxy clusters? ... What prevents them from collapsing into the central dominant galaxy (the yellow 'elliptical' shown at the heart of each node)?

To answer this we need to consider another kind of flow.

The Cell Mechanism: Matter Flow

The above section deals with the flows that result from the balanced processes of aether, its expansion and its contraction. This is the flow shown in the animation.

There is, however, another pair of balanced processes. There exists a harmony  between primitive matter formation (an emergence from the aether itself) occurring in the void region and the negation of a balancing quantity of gravitating matter within the interface (between cosmic cells) and within galaxy clusters. More specifically, the negation of matter takes place within the cores of excessive matter concentrations such as active superneutron stars.

This other aspect of the cosmic cell's equilibrium —the matter-formation and matter-negation— is described here only in brief outline. Considerably more detail may be found in other research papers on the website.

In a nutshell, the other aspect of the cell's equilibrium is between (1) primitive matter formation occurring in the Void (some believe it is derived from the release of energy due to space expansion),  and (2) the negation of quantities of gravitating matter within the cores of sufficiently large matter concentrations, most often massive superneutron stars. (Superneutron stars are, in some ways, similar to black holes. But understand, they never collapse inward through their Schwarzschild radius and, therefore, can never become black-hole singularities of infinite density.) Matter accumulation has a limit. Exceed the limit and matter/mass/energy become unsustainable —as happens in these special cores. In blunt terms, the matter, flowing into these cores, vanishes from the universe. It then, literally, no long exists. The descriptive term for this process, the term used in DSSU theory, is terminal annihilation. (Be assured there is no violation of the law governing energy conservation nor of the law governing entropy.) The two processes lead to a simple self-balancing mechanism. There is a continuous material flow entering the galaxy clusters (astronomers refer to the process as streaming) and a continuous destruction (terminal-annihilation) of material within the galaxy clusters.

Thus, when the matter formation-and-negation pair is combined with the space expansion-and-contraction pair, the cosmic cell becomes a complete, self-sustaining, self-balancing system.

In practical terms it means the Void does not grow bigger and the surrounding galaxy clusters do not become smaller. The size of the cosmic cell, for the most part, is stable. An average diameter is about 300 million lightyears.

Notice how  Nature hides its true nature.

The Universe's cellularity is 'hidden' in the tangle of strands and clumps of galaxy clusters and the even greater tangle of interwoven superclusters of galaxies: Lost in the cosmic web; expansion and contraction almost unrecognizable.

While large-scale structure is hidden in the apparent "chaotic randomness," the matter formation and annihilation processes are hidden by something else entirely.  Matter formation is hidden in the unimaginable smallness-of-scale of discretized aether. Lost to all our senses. And matter annihilation (terminal annihilation) is hidden in the ultimate density of the cores of active superneutron stars. Lost in the blackness.

Continuous Beginning, Continuous Ending

Contrary to conventional cosmology, our Universe did not have a beginning and it will not have an ending. However, everything in and of  the universe has a beginning and an ending. But what is most amazing is that the Universe embodies continuous "beginning" and continuous "ending". The dynamic cosmic cell has no starting and stopping mechanism. So it runs perpetually. In this way the animation, above, also captures the feature of continuous beginning and continuous ending.

We may think of this continuous beginning as primitive matter being formed from the aether —from vacuum energy in conventional terminology and theory. Conceptualizing continuous ending is easy. It takes place in the cores of active superneutron stars. They are the sink holes of the universe (and conventionally called black holes).

The full-term process from beginning to ending can be expressed in the following radically simplified sequence: Consider a newly formed sub-sub-atomic particle —a freshly precipitated precursor particle— somewhere, anywhere, in the universe. Regardless of the quantity and quality and time duration of processes in which it partakes, its ultimate destination is the core at the bottom of a deep gravity well where the terminal annihilation takes place. This event is literally the end of the original particle —or whatever it has evolved or transformed into. It is an 'ending' event. A tiny entity of the universe goes out of existence.

Should the 'particle', or object, somehow, by some great fortune, miss all the gravitating bodies harboring terminal cores, all the countless ones stalking conventional galaxies (especially the massive ones at the nuclei of galaxies) then its ultimate ending will occur at the core of a nodal supergalaxy —known to astronomers as cluster-dominating cD galaxies. Representations of these supergiants are located at the six nodes of the idealized cosmic cell, above. And I repeat, whatever flows into the core is fated for the final annihilation process and ceases to exist.

Before presenting the conclusion, is there anything that has been overlooked? Any dynamic force or effect? ...

Of course! Gravity. ... And what about the anti-gravity effect —the enigmatically termed cosmological constant made famous by Einstein?

Yes, yes. I should have clarified this earlier. I confess, I am so used to thinking of these two effects in the terms of their true nature (of their fundamental dynamic "true splendor") that I forgot to link them to the more common terminology, to the terms ‘gravity’ and ‘cosmological constant.’ (Both of which, in conventional physics, are missing a cause.)

Gravity is simply the effect produced by the contraction of space (the inhomogeneous contraction of aether). As for the cosmological constant, it is the effect produced by the expansion of space (the exponential expansion of aether). Both are caused by the dynamic action of aether.

(But unless this is your first visit to the Cellular Universe website then you would have known this anyway.)


When two fundamental process-pairs are combined:
When the space expansion-and-contraction pair is combined with the matter formation-and-negation pair, then the cosmic cell becomes a complete, self-sustaining, self-balancing system.

And we say that the cosmic cell of the Dynamic Steady State Universe is a perpetual dynamic system —always has been, always will be.

One final question. A question I asked myself some months after uncovering the four-process system in the year 2001: If the system involves perpetual motion, does it necessarily violate the fundamental laws of Nature? Does it violate the dictum most people are familiar with —the one that asserts that there is no such thing as a perpetual motion machine?

To fully appreciate the answer there are three things to consider.

(1) It turns out that there are three kinds of perpetual motion machines or systems: The first kind violates the principle of conservation of energy; the second kind violates the 2nd law of thermodynamics (the entropy law); the third kind, however, violates no known laws.[4] It is entirely  possible to have a perpetual motion system without violating known laws. Thus we could, if we wanted, say that, yes, the DSSU is a perpetual motion "system"; however, being of the ‘third kind’ no physical laws are violated. Aether is the component that moves forever —a perpetual flow into existence and out of existence.

(2) Astrophysicists concede that one law in particular, the conservation of energy law, does not apply to the universe itself. In the words of Edward Harrison, “The conclusion, whether we like it or not, is obvious: Energy in the universe is not conserved.” [5]

(3) And finally, there is the checkmate argument. There is an airtight philosophical reason why this must be so ---why there must be a perpetual process. See: Guide to the Construction of the Natural Universe and Section 3 in The Dynamic Steady State Universe.

The considered answer to the perpetual-nature question is, in the light of the foregoing:


Thus, the Dynamic Steady State Universe is a cosmos of perpetual formation and perpetual balancing destruction.

The Dynamic Cosmic Cell embodies the processes involved.
