Science and Starry Night — 1 Comment

  1. Vincent Van Gogh in his Starry Night painting indicates congruence to a universe fluidic model envisioned by Miron Smolokowski circa 1917 further interpreted by Camp and Stein circa 1940 where particle size distribution in a fluid is established as a function of fluid power input.

    The assumption would be that universe particles “stars etc”
    are held in suspension by a shear medium (change in velocity(v) with distance(x)). This shear is dimensionally consistent with the Hubble(H) parameter dv/x. H varies as (1+redshift)^3 providing a mechanism for star distribution as a function of universe age(1/H)(1+redshift)^-3.

    Such a fluidic particle approach can model the complex but real dynamics of star formation, perhaps congruent with Vincent Van Gogh’s vision as he looked through his mind’s eye out at the Saint-Remy night sky in 1889.
