Even the very word Firmament would suggest a vaulted space. The Babylonians say the sky itself is made of the rib cage of Tiamat.
What say you on this matter?
Is space a vault? Or not?
The term "vault" sounds like a translation for "containment vessel" and the "body of Tiamaa't" sounds analogous to "Nuit". (something more to understanding it if one knows of the dragon heart "reactor core")
The universe is expanding at an ever accelerating rate. It is a continuous explosion with no point of origin (as all large celestial structures are more or less accelerating away from each other and it is impossible to determine the source location of the "big bang") except in the past where it appears to come from a single point but if you were able to go backwards and approach that point you would find yourself chasing it forever.
Again, mainstream does not understand. Space it's self is expanding with the universe. Basically that means size is forever increasing(with regular intervals of folding in back on itself) as time is also accelerating(and folding). This also has the effect of generating matter which is being "pulled" from the mutual center of things which has no true singular location.
So when taking these factors into account from an impossible outside perspective the boundary layer is never exceeded but approached with infinite closeness... matter becoming finer and finer as there is more within the same space as space itself is being stretched. From inside it everything would look to be getting bigger if you could sample different timepoints simultaneously.
Think of it like a picture that is gaining more detail... higher resolution. Only the display monitor stays the same size that picture would get clearer and ability to zoom without loss greater but if the picture could be viewed at it's native resolution it the monitor to display it would be constantly growing and you the observer would be in effect getting closer to the picture... and eventually the picture grow too big for you to be able to see the whole thing and all that you are capable of viewing is a portion of it at any given time.
