Startling Theory Emerges: the Big Bang and Time Might Be Nothing But Illusions

Startling Theory Emerges: the Big Bang and Time Might Be Nothing But Illusions
SHARE

The Big Bang Theory is generally accepted as the right variant that explains how the Universe was born. Across history, physicists had brought an entirely new perspective on time than the one that most people have. Time is not just an abstract idea for measuring certain events and periods. The mere existence of time had a beginning, and it appeared along with the Big Bang itself. Or at least, that’s what many scientists believe.

Time is also relative and dependent on gravity and speed, and Einstein’s famous Theory of General Relativity claims these peculiar ideas. But things can become even weirder, as it usually happens when it comes to science. Thanks to syfy.com, we learn about an even more staggering perspective about time and the Big Bang: these could only be nothing else but illusions.

No beginning for the Universe at all

Physicist Bruno Bento is the one bringing the wild new idea. He claims that the Universe might have never had a beginning at all, which means that there’s no beginning nor end of the huge amount of space that we all live in.

But what are Bento’s incredible claims based on? It’s simple, he claims that General Relativity doesn’t hold up with the concept of singularities such as black holes and the Big Bang itself.

Bruno Bento declared for SYFY WIRE:

Sometimes, general relativity gives us infinities that we do not consider to be physical,

This is what we mean when we say it breaks down — we need something else, something new, to describe regions of strong gravity where it does not provide a physical answer.

Today he's seeing his dream come true by writing about the latest news in astronomy. Cristian is also glad to be covering health and other science topics, having significant experience in writing about such fields.

  1. In the beginning God created the the heavens and the earth and was without form and void it was void of compassion and love,things didn’t look right,and the bible said that the darkness covered the deep you couldn’t see the Forrest for the trees but the God said two little words he s aid but then this where the Lord step every thing was all out of form just like y’all been talking about then you hear this but then he said let there let there be light,he took out his shop light and he went to work creating everything we see

  2. I’ve had the notion that the big bang is a false hypothesis for a long time. The only reason that man thinks there is a beginning or end to thing is because of our own mortality. Here is the real question why must there be a beginning or end? The whole idea of singularity can not be found in nature. Makes no diffrence if you are dealing with micro- physics and quarks and string theory or you are dealing with mega- physics and the enormity of space and time, there always seems to be something smaller or larger. This equally applies to space, time, gravity, and magnetism. Singularity seems to be no more then a fantasy. The only reason there is a notion of singularity is because Enstine used C squared (the speed of light multiplied by itself) to represent an infinite number. Truth while extremely large it is not infinite.

  3. As matter moves through space during its life cycle, time exists and is relevant to itself. If there was no matter in space just space there would be no time as nothing would be relevant. Consciousness aware of the universe gives it meaning. When all life forms with this awareness die, the universe would have no meaning. Then, who or what would care unless the universe itself is conscious and aware of itself?

  4. if you were in a space ship that travels 100 million miles a minute and you head out in a straight line and could live 5 thousand years would you ever get to the end of space . I say no . There is no such thing as nothing !!!

  5. It has always been my belief that the universe has no beginning or end. And that the concept of infinity of the past and future is unimaginable to lowly human scientists because the are stuck in their own small reality. Life is far more then life.
