OK, but why post something like that? It has been explained many times how this contradicts all known laws of physics. Any concentration of mass in one place like a new bang in existing space would be an amazing amount of mass in a tiny space, when it's Schwarzschild radius is far larger. The mass would vanish in an instant into its own temporal singularity. The universe would have nothing but a bunch of black holes in it.Your name off to the left says "Science enthusiast" but 'going with' something blatantly self contradictory like that is science denialism, not science enthusiasm. Science is about learning, not about blind naive assertions.
I'm hypothesizing that "big bangs" are not uncommon events in an infinite universe that is filled with matter and energy across its infinite expanse.
Have you contemplated that kind of universe, or do you stop at Standard Theory and generally accepted science?
And note that this thread and these posts are in the sub-forum "on the lighter side", and are not intended to be hard science.
Is this thread in this forum putting me in jeopardy with management?
Not at all. You just don't seem to care that your fantasy cannot possibly work.
The other part of my premise is that the universe has always existed.
The alternative is "God did it". Is that where you are going with this?
Quote from: Bogie_smiles on 17/05/2022 02:52:02The other part of my premise is that the universe has always existed.I might agree with that part, at least so far as to say there is not a time when there was no universe (or anything else), and a later time when there was. But I consider time to be contained by the universe rather than the other way around. The statement above is open to interpretation.
Heh... There are a lot more alternatives than that, and ones that don't involve positing something even less likely than our universe. Getting into philosophy on a science site are we?
Mention a different alternative to "always existed".
my layman level logic tells me that you can't get "something" from "nothing"
I maintain that though empty space can be thought of as "nothingness"
unless space has always contained matter and energy
then in order for the universe to be as it is today, you would have to invoke "something from nothing".
But nobody seems to invoke that. It's pretty easily torn apart.
Is an infinite universe easy, or hard to comprehend?
So when I say in the title of this thread, "why not multiple big bangs?", it is not a reference to The Big Bang event, of which there is just one implied. It is a reference to possibly an infinite number of big bang type of events occurring all across space and over all time: an on-going and eternal/universal process.
However, from any local perspective, held by any past or present intelligent life form in the universe, infinity and eternity must be hard to fully comprehend.
Infinite time and eternity are very different things. Eternalism just says the universe isn't something that exists in time. It doesn't posit the boundaries of time or the lack of them.
What caused the start of time. What kind of boundaries there might be to a finite universe?
After a review of my thinking to date, my conclusion is that it is a reality that the universe has always existed and has always been infinite. ( that was my hypothesis before I started the review, lol.)I think that the infinite and eternal existence of matter and energy is a premise that I would like to consider on this particular thread; i.e. has all the matter and energy in the infinite and eternal universe always existed.Further, on this thread, it will be appropriate to say that the nature of the one and only universe can logically be boiled down to the three infinities of space, time, and energy; the universe is infinite in space and thus it has an infinite expanse, it has always existed, and everything physical can be reduced to space and energy. Therefore, there is only one universe, it is infinite, which means there is no "outside of it", and it is eternal.131230,131268,131306,131500,
