Asterium community of astrophysicists and mathematicians had been working on a very intriguing project during the last fifty years, trying to create a simulation of the universe that does not obey the standard mathematical rules, and have now published their initial results.

They were raised on an uncharted exoplanet which has an irregular orbit around the star HD95086, located approximately 300 light-years away from Sol. The subterranean proving grounds are using an area roughly identical to the surface area of Mercury; 7,53×107 km2. On that area is a completely controlled environment of vacuum and various physical matter, put together in a simulation that resembles the correlation of the two in open space but in this case, without the standard mathematical rules that prevent complete entropy.

#### Fractals, Fibonacci numbers, Lucas numbers, and Golden Ration

By definition, fractals are never-ending patterns repeating themselves through the same mathematical process, thus resulting with an indefinite pattern of complex sub-patterns across various scales. They are present in trees, coastlines, rivers, clouds, mountains, seashells, hurricanes, plants, even in the outlay of the universe itself.

The Fibonacci sequence is a series of numbers whereas each number represents the sum of the two preceding ones. The result is an eye-appealing arrangement of the material subduing this mathematical rule.

Fibonacci numbers are strongly related to the formula that expresses the *n*th Fibonacci number in terms of *n* and the golden ratio, and implies that the ratio of two consecutive Fibonacci numbers tends to the golden ratio as *n* increases. Fibonacci numbers are also closely related to Lucas numbers, which obey the same recurrence relation and with the Fibonacci numbers form a complementary pair of Lucas sequences.

#### Experiment and the first results

The theory that Asterium wanted to prove was that the universe could exist in a configuration that does not obey any of the proposed mathematical principles. Many have tried, only to have their experiment self-implode or literally explode, as the discontinuity of material created random atomic and molecular structures that were not sustainable. The conditions in the planet-wide subterranean area allow the hermetic separation from the outside factors. That makes it is one of the rarest (if not unique) geological formations in this galactic quadrant.

This laboratory somehow managed to survive the initial phase of its creation that we may rightfully dub The Small Bang.

The visuals of the first experimental results have not yet been published. When taking the Asteriums’ strict privacy policies into account, it may easily turn out that we receive only a vague briefing of their accomplishments. But we managed to source the information that the stable version of this simulation now finally exists.
