The UVS visual inductive resolution on globular cluster

In the UVS worldview, a globular cluster[w] is formed by the transformation of a dissipated satellite galactic polar vortex pair, which thus released its vortically withheld stars from its accretion disk[w] into an outer spheroidal-shaped torus[w] structure that encapsulates the globular cluster inside its nested vortical hypersphere[w].

From the UVS perspective, the spheroidal-shaped torus structure in the inner sections of a nested satellite galactic spheroidal vortex, could be vortically flattened by its polar vortex pair to form as a nested accretion disk.

After vortically accreting nebulous material to form as stars in its accretion disk, thus formed as a disk-shaped satellite galaxy with its vortical collections of stars, its inner polar vortex pair when dissipated would release the accreted stars into the outer nested spheroidal vortex, and thus forms as a globular cluster.

Note: The animation on right illustrates how a torus[w] could transform. It shows as the distance to the axis of revolution decreases, the ring torus becomes a horn torus, then a spindle torus, and when the distance approaches zero, the torus will resemble a sphere.

The cognitive paradox that renders globular cluster as a mysterious phenomenon, was thus resolved with its underlying vortical structure and mechanism explicated.

Remark: The formation of globular clusters remains one of the main unsolved problems in star and galaxy formation.

The structure of the observable universe is a nested vortical hypersphere, which is
being formed in the vortical transformations of a nested torus paradigm.

In the UVS worldview, a globular cluster is formed when the satellite galactic polar vortex pair underlying a satellite galaxy, has had dissipated inside its nested vortical hypersphere.

Paradoxically, this is a mysterious phenomenon that amazingly was caused by a vanished satellite galactic polar vortex pair, which did not show its presence for its observation at the first place. This visual inductive resolution thus has methodically resolved the very elusive cognitive paradox that renders it as a mysterious phenomenon with this very subliminal negation.

A globular cluster

Watch a YouTube video on "Zooming in on the globular star cluster Messier 55" that presents a stunning view of a globular cluster observed with the VISTA telescope at ESO's Paranal Observatory.

When the vortically consolidated stars on an accretion disk in a satellite galaxy are released by the dissipated satellite galactic polar vortex pair in a freely suspended condition, they would then be withheld with the repulsion forces that are vortically manifested in an outer spheroidal vortex of its nested vortical hypersphere.

This process naturally transforms the dissipated satellite galaxy into a spheroidal collection of stars.

From the UVS perspective, a globular cluster vortically encapsulated by an outer layer of its nested spheroidal vortex, would continue to spin with the momentum transferred from its satellite nested vortical hypersphere. Consequently, without sufficient dynamo effect[m], globular clusters are thus not active in evolving new stars as were observed.

In the UVS worldview, a globular cluster such as the Omega Centauri[w] was formed in a dissipated satellite galactic polar vortex pair that was impelled by the underlying galactic vortex of the Milky Way[w].

See an externally linked report on "Star streams reveal galaxy's dining habits" that suggests Omega Centauri is the nucleus of a small galaxy swallowed by the Milky Way.

The Omega Centauri contained several generations of stars as observed, indeed could be a dwarf galaxy many times its present size. And as a result of its satellite galactic polar vortex pair had dissipated, it thus could be more easily ripped apart and absorbed into the main galactic structure of the Milky Way. Nonetheless, if the satellite galactic polar vortex pair of a dwarf barred spiral galaxy such as the NGC 625[w] is dissipated, its stars originally withheld in its spiral arms would be released into its encapsulating spheroidal vortical hypersphere. These released stars if not ripped away could scattered around its nucleus within the spheroidal confinement, and thus formed as a globular cluster.

These empirical observations on the vortical hypersphere characteristics of globular clusters, are the pieces of strong evidence for suggesting a typical globular cluster is formed in the wake of its dissipated satellite galactic polar vortex pair, which was previously accreting the globular cluster as a satellite galaxy.

The UVS research predicates a globular cluster is formed in the wake of a dissipated satellite galactic polar vortex pair that had intrinsically flattened the inner nested vortical hypersphere.

See the UVS topics on "The vortical hypersphere structure of an elliptical galaxy" that elaborates on how a prolate shaped elliptical galaxy could be vortically transformed, "The formation of stars and galaxies" that elaborates on how celestial objects were vortically formed, and "The structure of the observable universe" that illustrates a vortical paradigm for the macrocosms and the microcosms that are grounded in a UVS conceptual framework of the observable universe.

The grounding for its epistemic theories of truth: The underlying vortical structure and mechanism of a globular cluster as explicated with its hypothetical construct based on the UVS model, elucidated its delusional observation that renders its mystery. Thus, its cognitive paradox could be meticulously resolved, and all the related natural phenomena were then qualitatively analysed in the conceptual framework of UVS by inductive reasoning for explicating with their empirical evidence to predicate by abductive reasoning.

See the UVS topic on "Overviews of the UVS research" that elaborates on its visual grounded theory for the evaluations of natural phenomena.

By visualizing the underlying structures and mechanisms, it intuitively reveals
the actualities of the mysteriously rendered natural phenomena.

Disclaimers: The treatise of Universal Vortical Singularity (UVS) in its epistemological paradigm shift, is fundamentally unconventional. Its hypotheses grounded on a generally unheard-of UVS model, bound to have shortcomings, such as loose ends, errors, and omissions errors. Many details and assumptions in its propositions have yet to be further researched, probed, evaluated, validated, or verified. Its implicit explanations are for casual understanding of the UVS topics presented in the UVS worldview, so if any term or statement is offensive in any manner from whatsoever perspectives, is most regretted. Links to other sites do not imply endorsement of their contents; apply appropriate discretion whenever necessary. Also, the content of the UVS topics, from time to time could be arbitrarily modified without any notice.

Viewing tips: Despite the presentations of the UVS web pages has went through much accommodation for their viewings on smart phones, they are still not entirely friendly to these mobile devices. For the best experiences, use a MS Windows based PC or computer system with Java enabled browser for running its interactive applets. (Such as Java Applet of Moiré pattern, JPL Small-Body Database Browser, and Planet Finder.)
