The big bang poses a big question: if it was indeed the cataclysm that blasted our universe into existence 13.7 billion years ago, what sparked it? Three Perimeter Institute researchers have a new idea about what might have come before the big bang.
The problem, as the authors see it, is that the big bang hypothesis has our relatively comprehensible, uniform, and predictable universe arising from the physics-destroying insanity of a singularity. It seems unlikely.
So perhaps something else happened. Perhaps our universe was never singular in the first place.
Their suggestion: our known universe could be the three-dimensional “wrapping” around a four-dimensional black hole’s event horizon. In this scenario, our universe burst into being when a star in a four-dimensional universe collapsed into a black hole. (1)
In order to keep our minds sane, we are willing to sacrifice everything in our path.
Why the universe should be “comprehensible”? Why the universe should be “normal” if its initial state was “abnormal”? Why do we still look for rules if the intiial state of the cosmos did not have any?
The doctrine of God seems illogical to many.
But so does love.
But so does the Big Bang theory.
Choose your theories wisely.
It seels that we live in an illogical world.
Trying to find logic in it is the only illogical thing…
