Most of my threads are in the Fringe, because while looking for explanations about the cosmology of the universe, I soon found that there are many gaps in our knowledge. My Fringe threads contain mostly speculations and hypotheses about what I propose might fill those gaps. I've been around so long now that I get very little participation out in the Fringe. It occurred to me that much of my material is philosophical. My whole model begins philosophically, and the gaps that I fill between generally accepted cosmology, physics, and the ideas put forth in my model are often philosophical. So let me try some here. There is what I call the Triangle of Cosmological Explanations: Please Register or Log in to view the hidden image! It is about the beginning of the universe. Some models of cosmology fail to address the beginning ... but logically, there are three major possible explanations for the existence of the universe. They are depicted on the sides of the Triangle of Cosmological Explanations, with the imperative, "Pick One". Are you willing to choose one of the sides, and discuss why you chose it?
