The Big Bang: something from nothing? Or what?

I recently watched a video about the Big Bang which explained that maybe the universe all began with nothing, although our brains couldn’t possibly comprehend that because of the way they evolved. But then I thought, maybe the Universe came from something, but that something couldn’t be there without the other. Maybe they are like virtual particles – they suddenly popped into existence. Maybe, instead of that idea (actually, scratch that idea; I’m going with this one), the whole Universe just popped into being, beginning with an explosion. I think it’s our brains’ way of seeing things from cause and effect that is probably hindering us from discovering how the world works, probably.


news stuff about blog

Okay, so I’ve decided that I’m quitting this schedule thing every Sunday. I don’t always manage to think of something really interesting in a week’s time; inspiration and ideas only come at certain times because of certain things that happen. Getting out of the house and going somewhere other than school helps me a lot (stimulates creativity), but unfortunately I don’t get to do that very often. I’ll keep my Twitter updated so you’ll know if I’m planning on posting anything or whatever. Oh, and by the way, you should follow me!

Why does gravity act like.. gravity?

I was trying to think of something interesting to write about yesterday evening after I came home from band practice. Suddenly, I just happened to think of tapping something and a sound coming from it in the form of a wave, and that gave away to an absolutely wild idea with many, many possibilities. So I wrote down some rough notes and developed my theory, but I’m still not exactly sure how to put it into words. I tried to see if anything was related to it so I would have a foundation for it, but ultimately it stands alone: Gravity is an absolute mystery.

Nobody knows just what exactly dark energy or matter is. While imagining the sound wave after tapping something, I thought: “Gravity. Planets ‘tapping’ each other. Streams of particles that act like waves: light. Matter.” Then I gasped and got really excited. Those are just fragments, really, and you probably have no idea what I’m trying to say, but I will try my hardest to explain my theory.

First of all, all you need to know is what gravity is: I’ll tell about the rest. So I thought, when planets are attracted to each other, is there some kind of light or particle that emits from the connection, but also keeps it connected? I’ve often wondered if there’s another type of wave that we’re just completely missing; and if that wave is in fact some form of dark energy. Perhaps, just for this blog post, I will call this theoretical wave “dark light”. A wonderful name, isn’t it? So when masses (planets, for instance) move through space, do they ripple the area with waves? Do they let off some kind of energy or signal? If there is any energy left behind, you assume there is potential energy. But can energy wait forever? What will it do?

Maybe, this “dark light” is a fundamental particle, a project of something quantum; it could hold all the answers to gravity, which might further lead us into knowledge of why the Universe is even here at all.

The misconception about the Big Bang

Used often in debates where the creationist vs the evolutionist, this is the argument that creationists think is a good point: that there was nothing before the Big Bang, so how could it happen?
Everything has to have a beginning, but it doesn’t have to be in our Universe. So where did God come from? Nothing? Oh never mind, he’s been there forever. Do you mean the beginning of the Universe, or before time ever existed?
The thing is, there’s more evidence piling up for the Big Bang theory, but not for creationism. We’re trying our very best to find out what happened that led to existence of our Universe, but we can never know for sure unless we have a time machine. (also i think it’s funny when creationists claim that science proves creationism because it doesn’t)
So was there nothing behind the Big Bang? Was it a singularity? That’s an idea, but I feel like it doesn’t have a firm holding. There have been other theories, like what if our Universe burst into existence from a collapsed star in a 4-dimensional Universe? 

Are you okay with not knowing where we came from? Well, I think no one is, and seriously want to find out. Life is no fun when you know everything (like thinking you know for sure that a God created us and rules us)!! Then there are no aliens, probably no chance of ever getting on Mars or achieving interstellar space travel… Because JESUS!!! I can’t even begin to believe that we’re the only life form in this entire, vast Universe. Maybe another intelligent life form is 40 billion light years away, it’s just that we haven’t found each other yet.

Being old, the Universe seems kind of sad and lonely and deserves to have poems written about it because it’s so great.

 

(it’s the weekend and i have free time so i posted a thing)

The Universe may not be expanding, says astrophysicist

Ever thought: what if the Universe wasn’t expanding? What about the Doppler Effect, then? Well, Theoretical astrophysicist Christof Wetterich says there is a different way as to why we are seeing what the normal effect would do to the affected.

Roger Highfield writes at Telegraph.co.uk,

Because the frequency or “pitch” of light increases with mass, Prof Wetterich argues that masses could have been lower long ago. If they had been constantly increasing, the colours of old galaxies would look red-shifted – and the degree of red shift would depend on how far away they were from Earth. “None of my colleagues has so far found any fault [with this],” Wetterich says.

Prof Wetterich takes the detached, even playful, view that his work marks a change in perspective, with two different views of reality: either the distances between galaxies grow, as in the traditional balloon picture, or the size of atoms shrinks, increasing their mass. Or it’s a complex blend of the two. One benefit of this idea is that he is able to rid physics of the singularity at the start of time, a nasty infinity where the laws of physics break down. Instead, the Big Bang is smeared over the distant past: the first note of the ”cosmic piano’’ was long and low-pitched.
Harry Cliff, a physicist working at CERN who is the Science Museum’s fellow of modern science, thinks it striking that a universe where particles are getting heavier could look identical to one where space/time is expanding. “Finding two different ways of thinking about the same problem often leads to new insights,” he says. “String theory, for instance, is full of ‘dualities’ like this, which allow theorists to pick whichever view makes their calculations simpler.”

This theory looks like it works just as much as the idea that the Universe is expanding, but will probably help us to look at things, like dark energy, with a different perspective, which is definitely what we need. Some of us desire to learn and learn and soak in as many skills and knowledge as possible… *ahem* like me. It’s a type of personality. In the end, I truly hope we end up discovering something new from this theory.

Mars comes close to Earth

Yesterday, Tuesday April 8th, Mars, Earth, and the Sun all lined up together. Unfortunately, I didn’t get to see it. Cloudy night with a chance of flooding on my part. Also my telescope needs a new lens, and there’s absolutely no way I can get it at the moment, sadly.

Anyways, you should still be able to see it, as I saw it about a week ago a bit closer to the horizon in the east. This whole month, I do believe, or at least for the next week, you should be able to see Mars. Of course it’s not exciting as an alignment with the Earth and the Sun, but hey, it’ll still be fun ;p.

a 3 dimensional planet and a 4 dimensional universe

for some reason i think this is possible; according to my idea of how the universe is shaped, it’s most likely infinite and there’s no stopping its expansion. this picture i’m about to show you is what i believe the universe is shaped as (except it’s overlapping, which i believe is 4 dimensional, which proves space and time are actually one). the picture is 1 dimensional but imagine it as a circle (3-D), each part of the universe, and what is in between each line is dark matter.

ahhh i just came up with another idea. it’s as a time bubble! or even a time bubble, something! our universe is time (or our own timeline, if there’s other universes). now what’s on the inside of the circles for it to be 4-D is what we see to be our universe: the stars, galaxies, etc (which are all round as well).

speaking of stars, i was reading another book called “A Brief History of Time” by Stephen W. Hawking. light has a lot to do with gravity. there’s a theory, i believe, that some massive stars can let go of light but the light is sucked back in. have you heard of the “dark star” and/or the supposedly hidden planet, Nibiru? well, Stephen says in his book that these are what we know as black holes, but maybe some of them have not collapsed on itself because of the mass and weight of the star (which causes the gravitational pull to be so strong it pulls light back into the star). i’m going to make a theoretical guess here: the dark star and other planets do in fact exist, right by our own solar system

i had a dream a couple of nights ago, about four different universes (including our’s). look at the shape of the universe: it will keep expanding from the center (which leads me to believe there’s a very powerful mass at the center of our universe); the line that you see fade out, the outermost line of the spiral, connects us to the other universes. i believe it’s like a rectangle, with each line connecting to the other universe, except two of them. you see, imagine it like a rectangle or square, whatever you want to see it as, but with one side missing. but it’s still connected, though there’s… perhaps antimatter? maybe we live on the outer “ring” of our universe? maybe that’s why we’ve found antimatter… but that’s cool, so maybe as we are rotating we can ride our way into the universe next to us (if we develop the perfect technology; which btw i read that NASA is developing a way to travel the speed of light with efficiency)!

so what we may think is 600 light years away is actually 30 years away, if we cross into another spiral (light is deformed by gravity as well!) of our universe.

woo. okay. i love this and i really hope i’ll be able to prove it someday:) it brings me hope and excitement x)
