The purpose of this paper is mathematically to demonstrate that whether or not the creation is geocentric, the universe has to rotate as a solid body in order for it to exist. This is done by examining the very foundations for the laws of physics, which laws relate properties such as mass, distance, and gravity by fundamental constants. It is the values of these fundamental constants which requires the rotation of the universe and, furthermore, specifies that the rotation period is of the order of one day.
The frontiers of modern cosmology are advancing on two fronts: twistors and superstrings, both of which originated in particle physics. These two areas hold the promise of providing us with, as F. David Peat reports it, "the theory of everything."note 1 Strangely, many of the properties of Roger Penrose's twistors, and Green, Schwarz, and Witten's superstrings, have significant theological overtones. This is to be expected of a theory of everything. The present author has independently been working on a theory of the firmament since 1977, a theory which took its present form in 1987.note 2 Since 1988 the three theories have been converging. With the recent generalization of superstring theory to massive superstrings, the firmament theory and superstring theories are as close as they can come without combining. The firmament theory presented here solves some of the outstanding problems of superstring theory, most significantly, what is the ultimate fate of a black hole.
