Sphaera was a book by Sacrobosto describing the Ptolomeic view of the Universe. The Planets, Moon, Sun, and the fixed stars were all located on celestial spheres. Beyond the last sphere it was Heaven..:)

In the past, I wrote about the Celestial Spheres and about the Flying Orchestra. Those blogs were about the similarities of ancient views of the Cosmos (Celestial Spheres) and my proposed topology (The Lightspeed Expanding Hypergeometrical Universe).

The Flying Orchestra adds to the topology the Fundamental Dilator and its song (dilaton waves)....:) The 3D Universe is painted as a Flying Orchestra, where each and every particle (dilator) produces its corresponding dilaton song. Each and every hyperon was modeled as a metric deformation coherence. There is an obvious analogy between metric deformations and sound waves..:) They are both waves..:) In fact, the dilator is better modeled as a soliton, while the dilaton field it generates is appropriatedly modeled as 4D waves...:)

There are other interesting analogies with the Wisdom of the Ancients..>:)

I looked around and did some pattern recognition....In fact, it turned out to be more than pattern recognition. Closer reading of Giordano Bruno's ideas about the Universe clearly indicates that he saw it according to the topology expressed by Hermes Trimegistus saying, and repeated by Saint Augustine and Nicholas de Kues :

"the center was everywhere and the circunference nowhere"

It is easy... One just have to see a circle and a point like the center of the circle...:) You can use my Hypergeometrical Theory icons above...:)

If you remember that if one expands a circle from a point as a starting point... that point maps into each and every point of the circumference. This means that the center is everywhere..:) It helps if one consider that from each point of the circumference

On the other hand, if you live in an arc of a circumference, you would never know that there is a circumference around...:) One can only see the circumference from outside of it...

So I agree with Giordano Bruno, Nickolas de Kues, Saint Augustine and Hermes Trimegistus in saying that the Hypergeometrical Topology is the correct one..:)
