Everything in the Universe is made from one type of particle.
All workings of the Universe are result from said particle.
The particle itself would be just the grey threads (or strings) in the picture (no color and a lot thinner of course).
It would fit perfectly inside of a dodecahedron
Actual thread (or string) length is about one Ångström and it is fine enough were 10 threads (20 radii) could curl-up into the size of a neutron.
Thunder / Lightning
If lightning strikes in your backyard you will hear an immediate and very loud clap of thunder. If there is NO rain it is easy to also hear the very low pitched thunder rolling smoothly away off into the distance.
If you are at "A" and the lightning strikes and claps at "A" it starts an expanding shock wave in the air that expands away spherically.
The shock-wave is so powerful it disrupts the atmosphere and what you think you hear as thunder rolling away is actually the shock wave instantaneous clap being reflected back -- over and over and over.
The shock-wave traveled from A to B in one second and it keeps going.
But if you were standing at any point along the path for instance "B" you would still hear the initial strike and clap as it passed by you at the speed of sound.
When the sound is approaching you -- you hear nothing because it did not reach you yet.
When it hits you hear the loud clap.
After it passes you: you hear the same sound racing away at the speed of sound and being reflected back at the speed of sound (the actual sound keeps getting further and further away though). That why it is turned into a low continuous rumble.
So what you are think you are hearing as thunder is actually the instantaneous strike and clap happening over and over and over.
It is continuous but not being stretched.
You are hearing one instantaneous thing but it is continuous
The sound of course is being Doppler shifted -- it is racing away at the speed of sound.
What you are actually hearing is the disruption in the atmosphere caused by a very powerful sound racing away.
If you are at "B" and have good ears and think you hear the thunder at "C" the actual sound clap event is already at "D".
In the time it took the sound from "C" to travel back to you at "B" the clap has already moved on to "D".
The Lightning Bolt
The lightning bolt temporarily folds up a section of lattice making it longer.
If you have a 10 x 10 piece of lattice and squeezed and pushed the width into size 9 it would make the length approx. 11. Same thing is happening with lightning -- lightning is only about a pencil thickness wide but by folding the width and increases the length it has to scrunch-up like the volcano picture clearly shows.
NOTE: there may be other reasons but this is also happening.
Big Bang / CMB
When the Big Bang happened it disrupted the fabric of space itself in the same way a one time thunder clap continuously disrupts the atmosphere.
When you detect the CMB you are actually detecting the "thunder" of the Big Bang. But It is happening as electromagnetic radiation of course.
The CMB is actually the Big Bang clap happening over and over and over but it is red-shifted down to microwave spectrum.
This is why the CMB appears to be so smooth -- like thunder it is actually all the same -- one -- thing. It is Continuously Discrete.
NOTE: I do not believe there was a Big Bang but if it is true then this is the explanation for the CMB
