In a study published March 9, 2018* — astronomers announced that the hundreds of galaxies they studied rotate on their outer edge about once every billion years, no matter their size or mass.
Everything travels through spacetime at the speed of light. This means that on the whole objects (viz stars) in our galaxy orbit simultaneously. However, in the very galactic center, objects move faster through space and slower through time making a tighter curve. The stronger the gravity, the more spacetime curves, and the slower time itself proceeds. That is why time very close to the center of our galaxy has an orbit of perhaps one day and the outside orbit is one billion years all at the same velocity (speed of light). What we see is the time (we look back in time actually). What we measure is the consistent speed of light spacetime. The more an object moves through space, the less it moves through time and the more it moves through time the less it moves through space.
The universe is approximately 13.77 billion years old from our point of view or position. The study* found it didn’t matter size or mass of the galaxy so even when our galaxy was just forming immediately after the Big Bang beginning of time, it appears the outer orbit would be one billion years. It takes approximately 230 million years for our solar system to complete one orbit around our now location — 2/3 the way out from our galactic black hole center. The very close to center could be the one-day orbit.
From our position it appears that when our solar system completes one more orbit our galaxy will be 13.77 billion years plus 230 million years to equal 14 billion years.
If the study* is correct, every orbit is one billion years on the outer edge. That would mean the outer edge of the orbital galaxies have already covered 13 billion years or 13 orbits. The out edge of the Milky Way orbit of one billion years will orbit with the synchronized solar system orbit to total 14 billion years for the universal age.
God symbolically told us in Genesis 2:3-5 about seven generations of spiritual creation and seven generations of physical creation to equal 14 generations. Abraham 3:1-18 is an amazing chapter of scripture explaining spacetime long before Einstein. It is mind blowing that many, many years ago Abraham knew about planets that “moveth in order more slow,” and the reckoning of time. Abraham 3:8, “And where these two facts exist, there shall be another fact above them, that is there shall be another planet whose reckoning of time shall be longer still;” or slower ticking clock.
