When he died there was no funeral service, and to this day no-one knows the location of his final resting place. This was per his request. Very little is known about his private life. He did however write about his work and these writings are all we have that embodies his personal opinions. There is one opinion that he expressed that seems to have been forgotten. He expressed this opinion in the form of a prediction.Correctness is important so please read the following by Allan Sandage, who was a colleague of Hubble’s and wrote about him in the Journal of the Royal Astronomical Society of Canada in 1989. In part Dr. Sandage wrote:“Edwin Hubble, to the end of his writings, believed that true expansion did not exist, and that the redshift actually “represents a hitherto unrecognized principle of nature.”Hubble’s statement should be viewed as a legitimate prediction. Unfortunately this statement has faded from our collective memories. This book is about a discovery that could very possibly be Hubble’s “unrecognized principle.” But even if this discovery is not Hubble’s “unrecognized principle” it is still an amazing discovery in its own right. If the claims in this book are proved to be true then the universal understanding of the cause of the redshift of distant galaxies will need to be dramatically changed.Of course the reader will ask- how could a principle of nature go unrecognized? The following excerpt from this books cites a perfect example:The scientific community has acknowledged the existence of the gravitational force within each and every atom. This force, commonly referred to as the weak force, is so insignificant that it can’t even be measured and is therefore ignored.Although this force may be too small to be measured it should not be ignored. That’s because no matter how insignificant it may be, it does still exist. To ignore this weak force is to ignore Isaac Newton’s 3rd Law: “for every action there is an equal and opposite reaction.” Newton did not specify any limits to this law. No matter how small the action may be, it must produce an equal and opposite reaction. By ignoring the action, we are ignoring the reaction as well, and it is this reaction that may very possibly be the “unrecognized principle” predicted by Edwin Hubble.The following is an example of something else that is so small that it too is considered to be insignificant. Please allow me to introduce the little Pharaoh Ant. It is the length of three salt crystals and can pass through the eye of an ordinary sewing needle. It is the world’s smallest ant.We will use one of these tiny ants for the following analogy. He’s been given the name Julien.One day Julien is walking along minding his own business. The Queen Ant sees him and calls him over. She says. “I intend to move the colony soon and need some test holes dug. I want you to go 100 yards to the west and start digging. I will send someone to check on you later.” The Queen has spoken, so off Julien goes. It takes him two days just to walk the 100 yards. He starts digging. Poor Julien, the Queen forgets all about him and help never comes. So he just keeps digging. When his 70 days are up, he dies. That’s the lifespan of a Pharaoh ant. The tiny amount of dirt Julien took out of that hole is truly insignificant.But we’re not done with little Julien just yet. We’re going to bring him back to life and endow him with two special qualities: First, he never stops working. He doesn’t stop for lunch or have dinner or sleep. He works 24/7. Second, he is going to live for 10 million years.So Julien works non-stop for 10 million years.
