The Enigma Of The Universe : Shape of the Universe

Published: 16.01.2015

Einstein's theory of the universe implies that the universe has no definite shape. This is expressed by Lincon Barnett thus: "And the most remarkable of these assumptions is that the universe is not a rigid and immutable edifice where independent matter is housed in independent space and time; it is on the contrary an amorphous continuum, without any fixed architecture. Wherever there is matter and motion, the continuum is disturbed."[1] Such a picture of the universe does not seem to be logical, for, if the total mass of the universe is constant, its effect on the four-dimensional continuum also should remain constant. Even when a body moves in the space from one place to another place, there is no change in the total mass contained in the universe. Hence, the total curvature of the universe which should depend upon the total mass contained in the universe should remain constant and subsequently, there should be no change or distortion in its shape.

The Jain theory also states that the shape of the universe which is in fact the shape of the Lokākāśa, Dharma and Adharma remains the same in spite of the motion of the masses inside it.
