Look for innies and outies, btw what is the ratio of innies to outies, with bellybuttons?
This linked article says that bigger and newer galaxies are more
-- more spirally -- and i was thinking that since the first thing that
it makes you think of is a drain, that that means that they
probably are some kind of drains. And if they start off all chaos-sy
get more structured this is because the black holes
at the centers are sucking all the stuff in. And it made me think
of each galaxy as like a piece of shattered glass -- if the glass was
all bubbly and uneven, because the differences in the way the
galaxies started out could be due to that they started to coalesce
at different times, due to the speed of the expansion of the
universe at that location, or due to variations in the basic laws
like gravity in that area. But it made me think really generally of
the "moment" when everything just all of the sudden was, and
some of the stuff had to decide, "well, I'm on this guy's side or I'm
on that guy's side", and why the different stuff must have made
that decision... Well it must have been because of something
about the basic laws -- the distances and the forces and how many
of the areas there were, but also because there were all of the
sudden these tendencies toward failure at the center of these
coalescences, which turned into black holes, and that if the
tendencies were the first differentiation, and they must
have been based on something, and the number of them that
there were might be one of the few things that they could be
based on that wouldn't be arbitrary, then maybe there would have
been a number of them that made some kinf of sense -- that
related them to each other. So maybe we should be looking for
black hole pairs. I mean maybe if galaxies, or the tendencies that
become black holes at the center of them, are the largest and
first structures then they are like stitches in that they tie
something to something else, which would also be a
really basic concept, and if they are like stitches then some of
them would be innies and some of them would be outies, so
maybe we should be comparing the black holes at the centers of
galaxies to each other for lots of different variables to see if some
of them are innies and some of them outies -- if there is any kind
of pairing going on.

||A nice-looking tidy galaxy is all down to
writing a good, clear specification and then
close liason with the contractors. Sloppy,
badly made galaxies are just the result of
poor control, and all too often corners being
cut for minor budgetary savings.

||No, not stupid, but rather poorly illuminated. I've made
most of a head and at least half a tail of it, and it seems
to be a very interesting macromodel of some of the latest
discoveries in supersymmetry theory, like the Georgi-
Dimopolous Standard Theory played out at 100 million TeV.
Think the search for a Higgs boson the size of Jupiter.
