Is there a quantum world beyond our universe?
« on: 24/07/2015 16:08:13 »
According to the big bang theory, matter was created after the inflation phase. My question is about the end of the universe where the expansion of the big bang at its end. Since the quantum world behaves unpredictably and particles can be in multiple places at once and even appear from nothing, Would a quantum world exist after (or outside of) the big bang expansion?

Would quantum world exist outside of the big bang expansion?
As Robbie the robot computer might say: "Insufficient Data".

lol that's funny but i was hopping for any kind of an idea no mater how far fetched it might bee i would listen to it. Based on eternal inflation and multiverse are universe should be surrounded by pool of cosmic energy so now how would this cosmic energy effect the big bang expansion and how would it effect quantum world lol i just created another question, what im trying to say is that im just looking for ideas that might fit to answer this question.

Many of the current theories are summarized here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ultimate_fate_of_the_universe, with links to more details, if you are interested.

Odd. CERN has it as: http://www.exploratorium.edu/origins/cern/ideas/bang.html

According to most astrophysicists, all the matter found in the universe today -- including the matter in people, plants, animals, the earth, stars, and galaxies -- was created at the very first moment of time, thought to be about 13 billion years ago.

Quote from: CERN
About one ten-thousandth of a second after the Big Bang, protons and neutrons formed, and within a few minutes these particles stuck together to form atomic nuclei, mostly hydrogen and helium. Hundreds of thousands of years later, electrons stuck to the nuclei to make complete atoms.

I don't think that the statements of D and CERN are contradictory.
Quote from: Wikipedia
The inflationary epoch lasted from 10−36 seconds after the Big Bang to sometime between 10−33 and 10−32 seconds.

When I went to school, 10-4s (components of the atomic nucleus) came after 10-32s (the end of inflation).

Cosmological Inflation (a very short period, by our reckoning) is not to be confused with Cosmological Expansion (which is continuing now).

Thank you for that page there are few theory's that were unfamiliar to me
