CosmosThe world that we live in is very vast and boundless. While the human race is confined and live in a small portion of the world, people are aware of the existence of other planets and galaxies as well as many other things in the universe and the cosmos.The cosmos is the universe regarded as a complex and orderly system; the opposite of chaos.“Cosmos” is defined as a harmonious and orderly whole, a system that is governed not by human or supernatural laws but by natural law. It is used to refer to objects that exist naturally especially those that can be seen in the sky. The term “cosmos” has two connotations. It comes from the Greek word “kosmos” which means “order, good order,” or “orderly arrangement” from which the verb “kosmein” which means “arrange” or “adorn” is derived and passed on to the English language.It was first used by Pythagoras, a 6th century Greek philosopher, mathematician (he discovered the Pythagorean Theorem), and founder of the religious movement Pythagoreanism to refer to the whole physical world or the universe.The philosopher Pythagoras used the term cosmos (Ancient Greek: κόσμος) for the order of the universe, but the term was not part of modern language until the 19th century geographer and polymath, Alexander von Humboldt, resurrected the use of the word from the ancient Greek, assigned it to his multi-volume treatise, Kosmos, which influenced modern and somewhat holistic perception of the universe as one interacting entity.The universe is composed mostly of empty space. But this space is occasionally populated by an amazing assortment of incredible objects. These objects create an orderly, harmonious system known as the cosmos. Close to home, our Solar System consists of planets, moons, asteroids, and comets that circle a central star in an orbital dance that has been going on for billions of years. As we move farther away into deep space, we encounter exotic objects with bizarre properties. Pulsars and Quasars shine with the energy of millions of stars. Neutron stars and black holes distort the very reality of space time itself. And somewhere out there, a mysterious substance known as dark matter composes as much as 90% of the known universe.The universe is the cradle of life, a never-ending source of every form of life and the expression of its creation.The A and Ω, the end of the beginning and the beginning of the end. The Universe is the totality of everything that exists, has existed, and ever will exist.The Universe includes all of space time; the entire contents of outer space; all matter, energy, dark matter, and dark energy; all galaxies, stars, and planets; all humans and every living thing; all molecules, atoms, subatomic particles, photons; all physical constants, physical laws and fundamental interactions.
The Universe can even be understood to encompass all of mathematics, all concepts and ideas, and all thoughts and emotions.Cosmos (also Kosmos) is a term generally referring to an orderly or harmonious system, often used as a synonym for the physical Universe, especially when emphasizing that it consists of patterns of relationships between discernible forces, energies and matter, and can be said to be governed by an orderly system of laws. It is also used as a synonym for pantheistic, pantheistic and Hermetic notions of the All, or God.The size and age of the Cosmos are beyond ordinary human understanding. Lost somewhere between immensity and eternity is our tiny planetary home. In a cosmic perspective, most human concerns seem insignificant, even petty. And yet our species is young and curious and brave and shows much promise. In the last few millennia we have made the most astonishing and unexpected discoveries about the Cosmos and our place within it, explorations that are exhilarating to consider. They remind us that humans have evolved to wonder, that understanding is a joy, that knowledge is prerequisite to survival. I believe our future depends powerfully on how well we understand this Cosmos in which we float like a mote of dust in the morning sky.The cosmos itself must of necessity be indestructible and un created. Indestructible because, suppose it destroyed: the only possibility is to make one better than this or worse or the same or a chaos. If worse, the power which out of the better makes the worse must be bad. If better, the maker who did not make the better at first must be imperfect in power. If the same, there will be no use in making it; if a chaos… it is impious even to hear such a thing suggested. These reasons would suffice to show that the world is also un created: for if not destroyed, neither is it created. Everything that is created is subject to destruction.
“The Cosmos is all that is or was or ever will be. Our feeblest contemplation of the Cosmos stir us — there is a tingling in the spine, a catch in the voice, a faint sensation, as if a distant memory, of falling from a height. We know we are approaching the greatest of mysteries.” – Carl Sagan
The part of the Universe that we can see, referred to as the observable universe, has a diameter of about 93 billion light years (28 billion parsecs) and a volume of 4×1083 liters.The size of the whole Universe is not known – it may be infinite. Considering only ordinary matter, the density of the Universe is 9.9 x 10−30 g/cm3, equivalent to a mass density of 5.9 protons per cubic meter.Space is expanding, and the rate of its expansion is increasing. Astronomical observations have led to inferences of the earlier stages of the Universe, which appear to have been governed by the same physical laws and constants.The entire universe operates on a dynamic force, called cosmic energy.The cosmic energy is ever present, has an impact on each and every particle in the whole universe.Everything from the smallest cell in the human body through to the millions and trillions of stars in the Cosmos are a living vibrating dance of pure energy. As cosmic energy touches Earth energy, creation manifests itself gloriously.The cosmic energy can be converted from one form to another, but it cannot be created or destroyed.The Cosmic Energy exists everywhere in the Cosmos.It is the Bond between the galaxies, the planets, humans and molecules.It is the ‘space’ between each and everything.It is the bond, which keeps the whole cosmos in order.Cosmic Energy is the ‘Life Force’.This mysterious something has been called God, the Absolute, Nature, Substance, Energy, Space, Ether, Mind, Being, the Void, the Infinite — names and ideas which shift in popularity and respectability with the winds of intellectual fashion, of considering the universe intelligent or stupid, superhuman or subhuman, specific or vague. All of them might be dismissed as nonsense-noises if the notion of an underlying Ground of Being were no more than a product of intellectual speculation. But these names are often used to designate the content of a vivid and almost sensory concrete experience — the “unitive” experience of the mystic, which, with secondary variations, is found in almost all cultures at all times.When light is converted to matter, or when any form of free electromagnetic energy with “intrinsic motion c” is converted to massive, immobile, bound forms of electromagnetic energy, the symmetric (all-way) spatial entropy drive of light (the “intrinsic” motion of light), is replaced by an alternative, asymmetric (one-way) historical entropy drive, the “intrinsic motion” of matter’s time dimension. The historically expansive “march of time” is the metric and entropic equivalent of the spatially expansive “march of space” – seen as the “red shift” of distant galaxies). Time is an alternative, asymmetric (one-way), causally connected (constrained) form of space, providing the primordial entropy drive and historic conservation domain of bound electromagnetic energy. Time is derived from space by the gravitational annihilation of space, exposing a metrically equivalent temporal residue.Light, space, and the spatial entropy drive of free energy (light’s intrinsic motion) are all bound up together. Because of this lack of separation between the energy form (light), its conservation domain (space), and its entropy drive (the intrinsic motion of light), the energy of light is subject to extremely rapid vitiation via light’s spatial entropy drive, gauged by “velocity c”. The energy of light is dissipated rapidly as light expands and cools along with space, its entropic conservation domain. Light creates its own (spatial) entropic conservation domain by the action of its own intrinsic motion, that is, light’s embedded entropy drive. The conservation role of light’s embedded entropy drive is precisely to create a dimensional (spatial) conservation domain in which light’s energy can be transformed and used, while simultaneously being conserved. But when light is converted to matter and bound energy, a different form of entropy drive must be found, since matter cannot travel at velocity c. Nature’s solution is to allow the energy form (matter) to remain stationary (“rest mass”), and allow matter’s time dimension and entropic conservation domain (historic spacetime) to move and expand instead.
The words “cosmos” and “universe” are used synonymous as they refer to the same concept which is the world or nature. “Universe” seems to have a narrower or smaller scope than “cosmos,” though, and “cosmos” signifies a larger and more complex system.
“Universe” may connote a much smaller scope while “cosmos” implies a larger scope.Universe” is defined as everything that exists including all matter and energy, the Earth, and everything in it together with extraterrestrial or celestial bodies such as the galaxies, stars, meteors, and everything that can be found in intergalactic space.” It is everything that existed, that is existing, and will exist. It has three elements, namely; space and time or the vacuum, matter and energy that occupy space and time, and the physical laws that govern them which have been constant throughout its history.The concept of the universe was first developed by the Ancient Greeks. The term “universe” comes from the Latin word “universus” which means “whole, entire, all together, or turned into one” which was first used by Cicero. It entered the English language through the Old French “univers” which means “the whole world” which was in turn based on the Greek word “holos” which means “whole.”
