Jaw-Dropping Theory: Was the Universe Created in a Laboratory?

Jaw-Dropping Theory: Was the Universe Created in a Laboratory?
SHARE

There are plenty of theories trying to describe how our Universe came into being. The Big Bang model is by far the most popular. Some astronomers believe that another Universe existed before our own, that the Universe is one of those forming a Multiverse, and so on.

According to Scientific American, there’s another theory that can surely leave everyone speechless: our Universe might have been created in a laboratory by an advanced extraterrestrial civilization.

Are we all just pawns in a cosmic chess game?

If the mind-boggling theory is correct, we’re nothing else but actors in an apparently everlasting movie or pawns in a cosmic chess game. This means that we don’t actually have free choice at all. However, it’s just a theory, which means that it’s close to impossible to prove it to be either right or wrong.

But what could be the foundation of such a wild theory? Our Universe has a flat geometry and zero net gravity. Therefore, a technologically advanced civilization might have found a way to create universes using quantum tunneling.

The origin of those hypothetical aliens is also an interesting subject to debate. The theory could even point to the idea of a divine creator. Technically speaking, the Biblical God is also an alien since he’s often located beyond our Earth’s atmosphere. Therefore, if you haven’t been a fan of Creationism, maybe now’s the time to rethink your attitude.

Even now, science cannot say for sure what existed before the Big Bang. NASA astrophysicist Michelle Taller speaks about the widespread misconception that the Big Bang Theory supports the idea of the Universe appearing from nothing.

Feel free to share your own thoughts with us! Do you believe that our Universe might have been created in a laboratory by highly intelligent aliens? Do any of you have a secret recipe for how to create a Universe?

  1. In the grand scheme of things, human beings are just TOURISTS (people of various colors & languages) … walking around seeing the sights on an obscure planet in what appears to be an INFINITE universe.

    TIME seems to be infinite as well and the whole thing is a BRIEF situation in terms of ETERNITY.

    Our participation as individuals is limited to just a few years.

    It’s a STRANGE trip we’re on – in a strange place where there can be a lot of fun … but also lonely scary & painful times.

    We need each other!
    Tourists can easily get LOST, right?

  2. I’m getting on in my life, getting old wondering, what it will be like, to be no more. Will I know ? Or will I have a choice
    To do it again.
