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.
