This is a theoretical framework based on the best of my knowledge, I am self-taught so any errors are mine alone. I attempted to leave the theory ambiguous in spots even where I am almost certain I know the forces at play, in the end all that matters is forces are in fact at play. The basic structure of space fabric is 2-D. Imagine it just as we've always known it:
Images help me a lot, so as I'm talking about this, I want you to use this as the visual representation of what I am talking about. The lines of the fabric are there to show "space" not to represent anything other than the fabric itself. Einstein is there to remind you to be nice to me.
The attributes of this 2-D space-fabric are it has a finite edge and it is composed of basic units, these basic units exist around the planck length and are called Alephs.
Alephs are non-divisible units. Alephs are all the same, but they can take many different expressions. All expressions fall under 2 basic states, ON and OFF.
In the ON state Alephs project Standard Model Particles
into --blank space??-- [This part messes with me, space is secondary phenomena, they are projecting from the 2-D field and we at least experience space as real so I don't know]
The OFF state is a "dormant" (I say dormant because it is OFF, but it is composed of dark matter so?) state consisting of at least dark matter.
There are rules that decide whether an Aleph is in the ON state or the OFF state, the rules are a bit muddy but the states like to maintain themselves. I theorize the OFF state is stronger, but the ON state can maintain itself with sufficient ON state units around it.
To give a really simple example imagine the Alephs as light bulbs, when they are ON they project energy in the form of the standard model particles, and in the OFF state the light bulbs go so dark you can't see them but you can detect them through the basic interaction between ON and OFF states. I am positing this interaction is what gives rise to the phenomena known as gravity. Go back to the top image but this time it is Alephs projecting energy into the center created a 3-D hologram that has the attributes of mass and energy.
At this point, those of you who are familiar with the holographic principle
recognize it. Initially I called them G units to be funny, and I had not yet learned about the holographic principle. Even when I did, I did not make the connection until I went back to General Relativity and the image of the earth bending spacetime instead looked to me like the earth being projected from the blanket. To paraphrase the Dude, the Holographic Principle really ties this all together.
That is essentially it, but to demonstrate how these Alephs work I am moving into anti-DeSitter space as the concepts are easier to understand in that space. This hyperbolic disc represents the universe at any given moment.
This disc doesn't just represent the state of the universe is currently in, it represents every possible state of the universe. So this disc represents both what we know as the universe, and all probabilities both likely and unlikely frozen in time for us to inspect.

Three-dimensional anti-de Sitter space is like a stack of hyperbolic disks, each one representing the state of the universe at a given time. The resulting spacetime looks like a solid cylinder.
*note the arrow of time denoting the direction the universe is moving
As the universe moves forward on this timeline, we can only calculate probabilities of physical events in spacetime. The universe exists in a probabilistic state.
The Alephs are always ready to change states, they can do so at any time under the right conditions. This reflects the probabilistic state of the universe.
"The truth about the world, he said, is that anything is possible."
The good judge forgot to mention, that anything isn't probable.
As the events occur in spacetime the wave function they use to model the probabilities collapses into one probability based on the probabilities of it occurring roughly, in the case of the Alephs the probability is ON or OFF. If we go back to the big bang, there were a few big branches in the very beginning that decided what kind of universe we were going to have, and as those few main branches branched off the universe began to demarcate into ON and OFF states. ON/OFF states are constantly interacting with each other, and if they were close enough to one another and form islands of ON states within OFF states (forming the objects we are familiar with like Suns). The universe we live in is very stable, we don't see quantum phenomena occurring all around us like matter blinking in an out existence and the reason for this is quantum entanglement, all Alephs are entangled -- the scenario I just gave is how the Alephs end up with localized phenomena despite the whole universe being quantumly entangled. The hook here, is we are also quantumly entangled to the past and the future --- (been messing around in information theory, the past gets stored somehow. I can remember yesterday it's fucking stored someplace other than my head im sure, although this is one of the places it is stored so....) so the past states of Alephs in large part dictate future states although they are technically able to change their expression "at will" as it were, they do not change expression as a result of being entangled with the past (and the future, which is known to a large extent).
So as time moves along, the quantum state the Aleph was in when time occurred (it is constantly occurring) is "frozen" in a sense because we can't go back to it, yet we are quantumly entangled with it.
I would also like to point out that in this scenario, the OFF states are also expressed but they are expressed dormant meaning they did not get expressed but they are still there. So in these discs that represent every possibility of the universe there are some branches that have never been expressed, they still have the probability to but will likely never see the 'light of day' as it were. They exist though, so no 'many universes' in this theory, only this one we exist in of the greatest current probability. This does not preclude many dimensions, after all if you accept this it seems Euclidean Space is secondary phenomena.
So now that my hubris is fully expressed you may fire at will!
