The universe began with a bang…Or did it? Do we know how the universe began? The Big Bang is a theory, a good one yes, but was that the beginning?
The Big Bang theory states that at the first moment in time, every thing in the universe was condensed into a tiny particle. All the energy and potential of the universe was inside a speck of matter that had infinite possibilities. The amount of energy in this speck of matter was so overwhelming that it exploded, to become what we now experience around us today. But how do we know that this was the start? What about before that moment. Did the universe just, not, exist?
Studies illustrate that the universe has only existed for the last 13 Billion earth years, but how is that possible if the universe is infinite? Sounds like a paradox to me. Wouldn’t it make more sense if it was “timeless” and not constrained to concepts like time? Can how old the universe truly is ever be proven? When Science says it began 13 Billion years ago, doesn’t it simply mean that that is the first point in time where we can observe and postulate about the universe? To our perception it is the beginning, but how do we really know that was the start?
What if, “our” big bang was just the beginning of another cycle; a cycle of expansion and contraction, a cycle of life, death, and rebirth for the universe? Imagine for a moment that the universe breathes, just like we inhale and exhale the universe too, expands and contracts, and in each “breathe” (expansion and contraction) of the universe, reality is created and destroyed continuously, through a never ending cycle of realization.
If the universe is infinite, it must have no beginning or end, it just simply is, always and forever more. It must be like Ouroboros, the serpent with its tail in its mouth, symbolizing completion, flawlessness and entirety, the continuous circle of existence. It’s a spiral within a spiral within a spiral. Excellence. Perfection. Unity. Oneness. The “I” that is the universe.
Happy and Fulfilled,
