The universe shouldn’t exist — at least according to a new theory.
Modeling of conditions soon after the Big Bang suggests the universe should have collapsed just microseconds after its explosive birth, the new study suggests.
“During the early universe, we expected cosmic inflation — this is a rapid expansion of the universe right after the Big Bang,” said study co-author Robert Hogan, a doctoral candidate in physics at King’s College in London. “This expansion causes lots of stuff to shake around, and if we shake it too much, we could go into this new energy space, which could cause the universe to collapse.”
Physicists draw that conclusion from a model that accounts for the properties of the newly discovered Higgs boson particle, which is thought to explain how other particles get their mass; faint traces of gravitational waves formed at the universe’s origin also inform the conclusion.
Of course, there must be something missing from these calculations. (1)
This last phrase is the key phrase of this article.
We are certain for the way things are.
And we just want ot justify them with theories.
Don’t fool your selves.
Science does not “discover” anything.
It just tries to put logic into what we believe.
The most fundamental things we know, we just… know them.
Deep inside, we just feel the truth.
What the mind seeks, it actually just tries to understand.
Because the heart has already found it…
