What if galaxies are "atoms," and stars are "light"?
What if galaxies "emit" and "absorb" stars, just like atoms emit and absorb light? Are stars being "absorbed" in black holes? Isaac Newton's theory of light was that it is made of little bodies, or "corpuscular." Could he be right? And if stars were "light," does that mean that light is actually made of little "stars"? If light is not actually a wave, then the interpretation of redshift as a Doppler shift, and therefore the theory of a Big Bang, is without foundation.
Lord Kelvin and J.J. Thomson originally proposed a "vortex" model for the atom, and galaxies exhibit spiral structures. Is the "vortex" model correct, and do atoms and galaxies share it?
Here's a test. What if the color of a star is also its color of "light"? In other words, what if big blue stars are also high-energy blue "light"? An atom only emits particular colors of light, known as atomic spectra. If you tally all the colors of star in a particular galaxy, does it match atomic spectra?
The evidence says "yes." Many galaxies share a unique "bimodal" distribution of star colors.
Here's another test. Atoms have discrete numbers of neutrons, which when ejected from the atom become protons, or atoms of hydrogen. Different elements have different mass, or "size," and "larger" elements can be identified by their increasing number of neutrons. Larger galaxies have been found to contain smaller galaxies in very close proximity, which are known as "dwarf galaxies." What if "dwarf galaxies" are "neutrons"? Then the number of "dwarf" galaxies "inside" a large galaxy should match the number of neutrons in an element. In addition, larger galaxies form small groups, such as the Local Group or M81 Group. The positions of galaxies in a group should match the geometry of atoms in a molecule containing the same "elements" that are identified from counting their dwarf galaxies.
In fact, the Milky Way has around 20 identified dwarf galaxies inside it, and the nearest large galaxy Andromeda has around 14 nearby.
