comment Multiple Intersecting Universes
@WillO Your pasted-together construction is not a manifold and is thus hardly mainstream physics. And really the universe is everything there is, by definition.

comment dry adiabatic lapse rate
While the same calculations appear in astronomy, the notation and context is different enough I might not know what I'm talking about. Still, feel like your first proposed equality is missing the rest of the chain rule: $dT/dz = (\partial T/\partial p)\vert_\rho (dp/dz) + (\partial T/\partial\rho)\vert_p (d\rho/dz)$. I suppose this all comes down to what $\Delta$ means, and whether you take $p$ to be a reparameterization of altitude (in which case what you wrote makes more sense) or one of necessarily two abstract thermodynamic abscissas to vary.

comment What is a Geodetic?
Can you include a reference to the use of this term? In relativity, it is almost certainly a typo or a confusion on the author's part. Geodetic is the adjective associated with geodesy, which is the branch of geography dealing with assigning coordinates to the Earth.
