Abstract
The conventional view is that the cosmic spectral-redshift, an effect observed in all directions of the heavens, is primarily a measure of space-medium expansion. Significantly, the more distant the galaxy the greater is the redshift — and the greater is the intervening space expansion. The redshift evidence is unequivocal; its implication, its interpretation, however, is not. The important question is this: Does all the evidence for “space” expansion necessarily imply that the whole visible universe must also be expanding? Given a universe whose volume consists mostly of expanding space, does it follow that the entire universe must expand? On this momentous issue rests the future course of cosmology. Yet, it seems, the question has never been seriously addressed. Meanwhile, there is a growing awareness that the assertion of whole-universe expansion is a non-sequitur fallacy. Universe expansion is the unscientific extrapolation of space expansion. It is an unwarranted extrapolation of general relativity. Instead of universal expansion, this paper considers regional space expansion along with regional space contraction — one dynamic process being the complement of the other. This dual dynamic nature of the medium is given full recognition and exploited in the construction of a nonexpanding cellular model of the Universe. The emphasis is on the cell structure and the two “space” postulates involved in sustaining the structure, for it is in the structure of the cosmic cells that the nature of the relationship between Lambda and gravity is revealed.
