The Big Bang.. it’s where it all started… Right?
Maybe so, but what if the Big Bang is an event that occurs frequently throughout the history of the universe? Could we be the aftermath of one Big Bang that allowed life to exist? Think of all the history you have learned. You never hear about failed attempts, but you KNOW all the successful ones. How many attempts do you think Edison made before creating a successful light bulb? It is said it took two years and over 6000 attempts before he got it right. How many of you how many attempts it took? How many of you know that Edison created the bulb?
The point we are making is that The Big Bang may have created it all, but our Big Bang is most likely the successful “Bang” out of millions of “Bangs” that went right. It could be the last Big Bang to happen or we could be riding on this successful “Bang” that could end anytime.
Now you might be thinking… “If there were multiple Big Bangs, then presumably wouldn’t we see some faraway galaxies moving towards each other or at least a more complicated relationship between the distance of objects we see and the speeds at which they appear to be moving away from us?” The answer is YES! As far as we can observe, we do not see galaxies moving toward each other, but our current timeline should not be considered the only one. What if only one Big Bang can occur at a time? What if they are occurring all the time in different dimensions? Some say the universe has and will again collapse on itself and the Big Bang process will start over. If this is true many things would make more sense, but the current Big Bang model does not show, or will not ever show, a galaxy collapsing on itself and creating another big bang.
At some point while reading the above text you have asked yourself, “So there are multiple Big Bangs… well… you did not mention where the first Big Bang material came from?” Your right. We don’t know and there is a very small chance we will know. There are theories of course, but how could you prove them with 100% certainty? I guess if a “being” came to us with verifiable truth then we would know, but the first question I would ask is how this “being” knows with 100% certainty if nothing was around before this event. I can not say we will never know because history has taught us when you say never in science, someone finds a way to find an answer. The Big Bang Theory may easily be replaced by a new theory as knowledge grows and this question may never need be answered. Let’s look at this another way. If we wonder about who created God, then we have to wonder about who created the creator of God, and who created the creator of the creator of God, and who created the creator of the creator of the creator of the creator of God, add infinitum, then there is an endless cycle of God-creation, and never any action from this God to produce the universe in the first place.
So where do we go from here? I’m not going to just guess or infer something without basis… instead… I’m going to tell you we come up with these ideas or theories because they are the logical conclusion of what we observe. What if we can not see the truth? What if what we know though experiment turns up nothing? What if we are looking for the wrong thing? Maybe our brains can not grasp the truth?
You can imagine anything you like. Proof is another thing altogether. It is said that anything your brain can imagine can become reality. I will tell you this is true, but that’s a topic for another article that we will surely be exploring soon!
