I don't assert any new idea.
My premise is that there was no beginning, i.e., space, time, matter and energy have always existed. I do agree with the multiple occurrences of Big Bang events, ... here and there, now and then ... The very first moment of time might be construed to be an event particular to each big bang arena in a multiple big bang scenario, meaning that there may not be an initial beginning, but that each big bang arena has its own beginning.
... I don't believe there is any irrefutable evidence though that says there was a beginning, and if you don't invoke a beginning, then an infinite and eternal universe gets easier to adopt as your world/universal view.

The big bang theory itself does not preclude it, but neither does it give any meaning to the phrase 'before the big bang'.

How can you find yourself anything but alive?
...That was the first time ever i had heard about, seen, & understood the concept of Death.
I could be way off, and I welcome anyone saying so, but to me, a multiple big bang scenario implies multiple catastrophes resulting in the termination of life on a massive scale, occurring here and there, over all time.
That assumes that life itself is generated from the mix of physics and chemistry
life is "generative and evolvative".
Quote from: Zer0 on 22/03/2023 20:00:13...That was the first time ever i had heard about, seen, & understood the concept of Death.It is the nature of the universe for lives to be individual, while death is often a group event. As individuals, there is little that we value more than life, but as the lives of planets and stars play out, death can often be a wholesale event.185641,
This is dependent on an Individual's Personal Views.I am a Single life form.But perhaps i house Millions of Other life forms within my body.My Death would be similar to the Ending of their Universe.(group event)Our personal Values vary accordingly.Some might lay more Emphasis on Ethics & Morals.Or Joy & Happiness.(If all that mattered was stayin Alive, none would have committed Suicide)
Transcending our personal existence, if the Whole Universe can be thought of as One Single Entity...Then any Cosmic scaled destruction probably won't matter.(when one flower withers n dies, another blossoms)
Let me add to that and say that even though it is hard for me to think of eternity as a single event, it does get me thinking of the existence of the universe in terms of one single entity with an infinite time allotment.
...Pondering about the Observable Universe...tryin to imagine & speculate what lies ahead......
From here and now, I speculate the future will be ,,, more of the same
Staring at the mesmerizing Stars, " Hey, Wait a Minute! "...more Suns!

Earth will not be habitable by multicellular life within about a billion years, so that's the end of us well before then if we don't find a way to do something about it. That's not exactly 'more of the same'. I personally see purpose in humanity. We have the ability to initiate the next level, but most people find, well, 'more of the same' to be more comforting.
