It is essentially an extension to my personal website but it is also linked strongly to the Virtual U3A Workspace.  This is a members only website but you can find out about the vU3A by going to vu3a.org .  This is a social and educational website based on giving a U3A like experience  in writing on line.  visit  u3a.org.uk for more information about the U3A or University of the Third age.  This is one of the fastest growing social organisations in the UK


Everyone has open reading access to these pages and you are very welcome to send me  comments via the contact page on my website.  If I think that they are important I will copy and paste the comments and my replies here.   I will usually reply to them reasonably quickly.

The following links lead you to  the various sections of this site  you can also make use of the Navigator, side bar and activity links to fully explore this site.


About Me

CV and personal information 


The latest description of my scientific thought processes on Episodic and Evolutionary cosmology 


*Cosmology Developments

This is an index page and links into the latest pages with more detailed information on their content it also introduces new pages that are in preparation on this subject.  Possibly the best lead in to the work.


Direct links to papers and pages


New Ideas in Cosmology     

               A popular science first principles article on the subject


New Physical Thinking in Cosmology

               An Ideas Map approach to Episodic Cyclic and Evolutionary cosmology


*The 2020 version abstract   

               The index page to a new formal paper  Work in progress


Common Misconceptions in Astronomy and Physics   

               A popular science presentation that leads into cosmology



Earlier work

*An evolutionary Cosmology   

               The Original 2015 Paper  


Rethinking our route to a theory of everything 

                    Even earlier thinking on this subject


This is the main core of my current thinking that looks at the limits of physics and cosmology.  A well observed and commented on fact is that the physical laws in our universe appear to be very carefully balanced to allow the complexity (including life) that has developed in it.


The general current approach to looking at this problem is that we live in a universe that is extremely improbable if we assume that, at the origin of universes (however that happens) the physical laws are "randomly" adjusted.  


The generally accepted idea is that there must be a very large number of substantially isolated universes or "Multiverse" in  "the bulk"  The sum total of everything that exists whether we can detect it or not.  


If however the physical laws in our universe "evolved" in such a way as to favour complexity, this may not be the case.


This concept is taken from the possibility of evolutionary drivers that occurred during the "Big Bang".  Right through to in an idea that may well be provable as true or false that universes actually seed new universes during their lives thus allowing a true "survival of the fittest"  i.e. the longest lived with most progeny, approach to a complete cosmology and theory of everything.


Evolutionary Philosophy

This takes you to the page that is linked from my normal web address

Some ideas that I am trying to develop  and discuss and relates the ideas above back down to a hueman scale via our familiar darwinian evolution through to human interactions and the internet.


Modern Faith Thinking

This page puts a link into the religious  or "Insiders" side of the "evolutionary philosophy" bridge. It also gives a more detailed insight into my religious thinking as an Atheist who is a practicing member of the Church of England.


VU3A Stuff

Pages developed for the Vitrual University of the Third Age  I hope to eventually develop an open access image of useful material that I have created in this closed website


*Creative Writing

This is mostly stuff that I have written as part of the amateur writers group of the Tiverton U3A


Mid Devon Indoor Bowls Club

This is an experimental website for the bowls club that I am a member of it is rather out of date and has ben superseded by

Am a bit confused as new areas seem to appear (and sometimes cannot find them again)!
Makes things interesting...

Thanks Charlie and rosemary. I think that you have to be logged into a PB works page to be able to comment I tried logging out and coming in as an anonymous person and was not allowed to comment. Rosemary are you talking about pages on this site or elsewhere? You must remember that each of the workspaces are individual you can see which one you are in by looking at what it says before PB works in the address at the top of the page. here you will see http://iankimber.pbworks.com if you are in U3a talk it is http://u3atalk.pbworks.com. You can always look at all the pages and files in a particular workspace by going to the pages and files tab at the top of the page. I will repeat this message on the U3A talk page
