|Presently accepted universe model|
Ok, how many of you just went HUH?! Really, How many of you subscribe to the cyclic or the constant expansion of the universe? I know I am partial to the constant expansion theory that holds to the Universe starting when an infinitely dense singularity began expanding 13.9 billion years ago.
Now in my mind, that lends itself to a very orderly universe, however there is a problem with the steady expansion of the universe. Einstein's mathematics of general relativity predicts the singularity but can not explain what happens immediately at or before—the singularity, only directly after the start of the singularity. Physics breaks down at the moment of the event.
Now scientists have shown in a paper published in Physics Letters B that the Big Bang singularity can be resolved by their new model in which the universe has no beginning and no end.
Of course if you have no big bang singularity you can not have any kind of cyclic theory. No boom diddy boom - no crunchity crunch.......
So what is exactly holding things all together? Well the new model predicts a new particle.
From the Phys Org article:
- In physical terms, the model describes the universe as being filled with a quantum fluid. The scientists propose that this fluid might be composed of gravitons—hypothetical massless particles that mediate the force of gravity. If they exist, gravitons are thought to play a key role in a theory of quantum gravity.
I want to thank my in-house anime expert Meebles for bring this new Universe Theory to my attention:
