My entire existence has been dominated by one simple question, “How did all of this begin”? By all of this I of course am referring to our entire universe. I have pondered this question for over 25 years, and I am 31 years old now. Science was always my favorite subject. when I was growing up. I used to spend hours in high school discussing my own thoughts and theories with my science teachers after school. I continued to do so even when I attended the University. I learned the three most popular and accepted theories of the day. The most popular of which is the Big Bang Theory. The only credit I am willing to give the Big Bang Theory is that it is possible, however; improbable it may be. What keeps the Big Bang Theory alive is that there seems to be scientifically proven evidence that points to it as the one and only explanation. I would argue that all of the very same evidence that seemingly supports the Big Bang could also support other hypothesis. The one sticking point for me is the “Before Period”. What existed before the singularity exploded? Where did all of that energy come from? We are talking, after all, about all of the energy contained within all of the matter in the universe; as well as all the free energy traversing this expanse. The Oscillating Universe Theory is nice, but it suffers the same problem; assuming there ever actually was a beginning. If the universe has always existed then it is a plausible theory. The same holds true for the Steady State Universe Theory. The notion that the universe has always existed, and will always exist as it has forever and ever. The only change in this model is the distances between galaxies, and other objects increases with new matter being created; so that the universe continues to look the same in all directions The big problem with this theory is that we know the universe is not unchanging. It is expanding and does change. We know that stars explode, exhaust their fuel and fade away, or crush themselves down into a singularity. This universe we live in is a very dynamic place. Galaxies collide, solar systems collide, planets and moons, and a whole host of objects can smash into one another at any moment. All of it dancing to the gravitational music of the heavens. All of which points to anything but a steady state.
What I am about to propose in this paper is an idea that I have dwelled upon for years. It is a theory that I believe in, and has helped me come to a better understanding of our universe. It also goes beyond the sticking point of, “What came before”. In my opinion there are only two current theories that make sense. There is my theory of the nothing universe and there is the theory of God. No matter how hard I rack my brain I just cannot come to any other conclusion. Either my theory is correct, the correct theory has not been written, or God is responsible for everything. These were the choices I gave myself, and for now I am going to stick with my conclusions. My goal now is to share my theory with the world, and hope that it is a good one. I believe that this theory neatly ties together all of the lose ends of existence. I also believe that it is every bit as good as the Big Bang Theory. With a clear understanding of our beginnings, we will be able to gain full insight into the inner workings of our reality. I would also like to add that I refer to my hypothesis as a theory because I believe most, if not all, of the evidence in support of the Big Bang can also be used to support my hypothesis.
The Nothing Universe
We are all familiar with our human concept of nothing. When a bottle is empty, we say; “Nothing is in it”. We know that this is not actually the case. What we are referring to is the fact that what we thought should be in the bottle is no longer there. In order for nothing to truly be in the bottle, the bottle itself would have to contain a vacuum. A vacuum is the complete absence of matter. This would be a perfect vacuum. Space is not a perfect vacuum, and it is difficult to say if a perfect vacuum can even exist. Regardless a vacuum is the true concept of nothing, but it is not the true form of nothing. What I am saying is that our concept of nothing and the true form of nothing are two different things. The true state of nothing is neutrality. A balance between charges in a perfectly arranged atom. This perfect atom I have named the Nothing Atom. This nothing atom is composed of both matter and anti matter particles joined together and separated by neutrons. The nothing atom is composed of the proton, the neutron, the electron, as well as their anti matter counterparts. They are all locked together and kept from destroying each other by neutrons. I do not know the exact arrangement of these particles in this perfect atom, but that is irrelevant. All that is important is the concept that they are all locked together in this one perfect Nothing Atom. The electron and the positron do not annihilate each other, because they occupy different orbital lobes. Again, I do not fully understand the exact arrangement of this atom; only that it existed. Whatever the perfect arrangement is, this perfectly neutral Nothing Atom is the only thing that existed in the pre-universe and composed infinity entirely. No free spce existed between these atoms. There was no motion and there for no time, but we can use the concept of infinity to give us an idea of the state of the universe up until the point of the event.
So now we have the perfect nothing universe composed entirely of the neutral and perfect Nothing Atom. All energy is locked up tight in the form of particles making up this nothing universe. This is the state of the pre-universe (Nothing Universe) in all directions to infinity. Now, here comes the major dilemma of my theory. Perhaps it was Nuclear Fission or some unknown process native to this one particular form of matter? Something had to happen in just one of these perfect Nothing Atoms to cause it to destabilize starting a chain reaction. Is the Nothing Atom a very heavy element, inwhich fission would make sense or is it smaller and some other reaction took place? Of this I am not sure. What I do know is that something had to create a destabilization of one of the particles within the atom to lead to an irreversible chain reaction that would lead to the birth of the known universe. I refer to this as the EVENT.
The event represents the exact moment when the reaction began, and our universe began to grow within this sea of atoms. Since the laws of physics do not exist, as of yet it is difficult for me to state conclusively that nuclear fission lead to the event. Spontaneous fission tends to be less common among lighter elements. If it is responsible then the nothing atom is most likely a heavier element. If not then some other process had to cause the event. Whatever the case may be, I have come up with a theory to explain why it had to happen based upon the concept of probability. Statistically speaking, one would have to assume that when you are dealing with infinity; the probability of one event occurring is one in infinity. That is to say that if an event can occur, however improbable; a chance still exists for its occurrence when infinity is taken into consideration. As one of my former geology professors, Dr. Eastler, used to say, “It didn’t have to happen, but it had to happen.” Once this one neutral Nothing atom destabilized, it set into motion a chain reaction that would lead to the greatest single explosion that will ever occur in the history of reality. Some may call it “the Big Bang”, I call it; “The Event”.
This is not a singularity exploding into existence, this is an atom setting off a chain reaction in a sea of perfect atoms. This reaction is instantaneous and is, I believe, the only event currently occurring in our universe at a speed greater than that of the speed of light. This is why we do not see the light emanating from this expansion of our universe. I propose that if we could travel fast enough and far enough out into space we would eventually come to a wall of energy moving away from us. I would call this the “Event Horizon” but that name is already taken so I will refer to it as the “Creation Wave”. This wall of energy is the boundary between our universe and the nothing universe. On the other side of this wall of energy is the universe as it existed before the event. An endless sea of perfect nothing atoms awaiting their turn to be annihilated by the impending “Creation Wave”. This means that our universe is still being created as you read this, and will continue to be created for eternity. This may also explain certain observations that our universe is not slowing down, but accelerating as it expands outward. The creation wave is essentially pulling the matter behind it outward due to the ongoing expansion, and or the immense gravity of the nothing universe on the other side of the creation wave. Does gravity even exist yet? Do any of the laws of physics exist in the nothing universe? If that were true than our universe would in no way interact with or feel the nothing universe on the other side of the creation wave. Even if there were an infinite amount of mass on the other side. I am supposing that the laws of physics are nullified by the form of the nothing atom. Whatever the case may be the creation wave is a never ending wave of destruction moving away from the center of the known universe at a mind boggling speed. This expansion also helps to explain why there is so much empty space out there. The universe we know is expanding outward to fill empty space, where empty space had never existed. A universe full of matter and energy in our universe and matter and energy in the anti universe. If an anti universe exists. In this theory i would have to account to the lack of anti matter v.s matter in our universe. One has to ask the question, “Where did all of the anti-matter go”?
I have possibilities to offer as to why we are not blinded by and vaporized by the energy being released by this process. One possibility is that the mass of the nothing universe on the other side of the Creation wave is infinitely great, that the energy and light from the event is bent back towards the nothing universe as the Creation wave moves forward. In that scenerio there would have to be some interaction between our two universes beyond the creation wave. The second possibility is that the Creation wave is so far away from us now that the light emitted from this event cannot reach our region of space any longer. Leaving behind nothing more than background radiation as the thumb print to this event. That is not to say that if we develop the capability to look far enough out into space that we may not catch a glimpse or some evidence of this light, but I highly doubt it. This Creation wave has been traveling outwards at a speed greater than that of the speed of light for well over 15 billion years now. Assuming the universe is 15 billion years old.
Another event may have occurred at the exact moment that the Creation wave began its long journey outward and forever. A the exact moment the chain reaction began not just one, but two universes were born. The first universe is the matter universe and the second universe was the anti-matter universe. These two universes exist on two separate plains that I like to refer to as the “Above” and “Below” planes of existence. The “Central Plane” is where the nothing universe existed in one dimension and in perfect harmony. As soon as the Event occurred the majority of anti matter phased into a new dimension, or plane of existence. Similarly all of the matter in our known universe phased into its own plane of existence. I have designated the matter universe as the Above plane, and I have designated the anti-matter universe the Below plane. These are two separate universes, on of which is composed of matter, and the other of anti-matter. Again, I would like to only deal with one universe in my theory, but I have to try and explain what happened to all of the anti-matter. There would have to be equal parts of matter and anti-matter to account for. Then again could only matter compose the perfect atom? Protons, Neutrons, and electrons linked together to form the nothing atom? Perhaps, but I can’t shake the feeling that anti-matter is involved somehow.
Another way to possibly picture these two universes as existing simultaneously would be to envision all of the matter arranged the way it is in our matter universe, and then imagining that the anti matter that is arranged in the anti-matter universe as occupying the empty pockets of space in our universe. So, if you look out into space now in our universe you will notice that there is a lot of empty space out there. The same is true for the anti matter universe. Matter in one universe occupies the empty space of the other universe and vice versa. We perceive it as empty space, because the other universe exists on a different dimensional plane of existence. This is one other possibility.
A link could exist between these two planes. This link can be found in the form of a black hole. A black holes gravity is so intense that it literally punches a hole into that other dimension. Just as anti matter is spewed out into our dimension from a black hole, I believe that matter is spewed forth from the same black hole into anti-matter space. A black hole may represent a bridge between the two planes. If you can imagine a matter black hole warping space and creating a wormhole that is linked to its counterpart or anti matter black hole. Perhaps they are one and the same or perhaps they occupy the same space at the same time. These two black holes being linked by a stable wormhole or perhaps black holes are connected to white holes. Perhaps white holes exist in both the matter and anti matter universes as the outlets or the transfer between the two universes.
Black holes share a very common link to the state of the universe in the very beginning and that is its very intense gravitational field. This field exists due to the sheer quantity of matter contained with in a small amount of space. The difference is that there was no free energy in the neutral universe, all energy was locked up in particles contained within the perfect atom. If there were any free space in that neutral universe, no doubt the gravity would be of a strength we have never before witnessed. A super black hole would pale in comparison.
The state of our universe today is that of chaos in an unbalanced universe. The same is true in the anti matter universe. The universe that we know today is trying to return to that neutral state. That is why atoms strive for balance. The elements that exist today are thanks to processes that took place in stars. In a sense our elements were the first things that began to evolve in our universe, ultimately leading the elements necessary for the evolution of life.
I cannot say that the universe will never return to the neutral state of the nothing universe. The fact remains that 15 billion years may be only a split second after the event on a universal time scale. We may still be witnessing the very early stages of our universes existence. Perhaps one day events will take place in the universe to allow for a pocket of nothing material or neutral matter to form. Is this what a black hole is? Perhaps it will grow slowly over time repairing itself and creating a new neutral universe inside of an ever expanding universe, surrounded by the first neutral universe. Perhaps this wave of balance and chaos has been going on for some time and the space that we are familiar with exists between one of these waves. Perhaps the whole thing exists balanced as a wave of existence and neutrality. These processes taking place on such a scale that we cannot even begin to comprehend the amount of time we are dealing with. I personally believe that we are living in the first universe and the only one that will exist. The matter and anti matter universes existing on separate dimensional planes, exchanging matter and anti matter with one another through various processes such as black holes, and white holes.
I cannot conceive of this universe ever returning to a balanced neutral nothing universe again. My belief is that we live in this relatively infant universe, the first to exist in infinity, and will exist in infinity from this point on. As I stated before though, you can never rule out possibilities. The possibility that matter in our universe will begin to collapse in on itself may occur at some distant point in the future. If the Creation wave gets far enough away from the center of the universe then perhaps its gravitational influence, if there is one, will drop below that of the influence of near by galaxies and all matter in between.
The universe could then begin to collapse in on itself, reform the neutral universe and the event would occur at some point in an even more distant and mind boggling future. Like I said, I envision our universe as expanding inside of the neutral universe. At the same time the anti matter universe is doing the same thing on its own plane of existence. Two universe, one to represent the matter universe that we live in and the other in the anti matter universe. One would have to assume that the laws of physics would exist in much the same way in both universes. I have not begun to ponder that question as of yet. I assume it does based on the fact that anti matter should interact much the same way that matter does in our universe. This is my working theory of the beginning of the universe. It is not concrete, but represents what may have been the state of the universe before the beginning.
I also believe that the same evidence that may serve to prove the Big Bang theory may also serve to prove my hypothesis. The evidence is not wrong, I am not saying that. The evidence was gathered using scientific methods that have been conducted over and over only to come to the same conclusion. The evidence is entirely correct; I maintain that the conclusion that the evidence is attributed to is wrong. I plan on writing a more comprehensive paper presenting the Theory of the Nothing Universe if this Hypothesis is moderately well accepted. I will then provide the scientific discoveries that I believe will provide a great deal more support for my conclusions than for the Big Bang conclusion.
