apologies for the bold - can't undo it... (fixed by mod)
We’ve known for a while that something fundamental is wrong with our standard model. We’ve got the basics right and are making incredible advances in the atomic and quantum departments but something's not quite right; things just don’t add up. What if our fundamental premise about our universe is flawed - our ‘creation’ story?
What if, before the instant of the ‘beginning’ of our universe, rather than nothing there was everything? What if all matter and anti-matter already existed in a stable homogenous state… impossible I hear you cry, but hear me out - let’s call it a matrix. An unimaginably infinite matrix. The big bang remains the ‘beginning’ of our universe when, at a single/multiple(?) point on this matrix, a disturbance causes a local coalescence of the previously stable matter/anti-matter. This coalescence creates a domino-effect chain-reaction expanding in a multi-dimensional ripple like a fire consuming the fuel, leaving behind (creating) a scattering of swirling masses (galaxies?) in our ever-expanding universe of concentrated matter/anti-matter reactions. Essentially with this creation idea, all the mass of the universe is not required to be in the same infinitesimally small space and ‘explode’ outwards - the ever-expanding domino-effect boundary of this chain reaction is creating more and more of our universe as it moves, but the fuel-stuff is already there, in the matrix, ready to be used.
The boundary of our particular ripple must be expanding exponentially. Beyond the boundary of the ripple is outside ‘our’ universe, as we think of it, but is actually just our universe in a stable state before it’s changed from the homogenous matrix into concentrations of matter as the ripple passes. Not so much something from nothing but something from something else.
I have a feeling if this is viable, if you can get past the basic premise (that everything is already ‘out there’) it would have some important implications.
Anyway, thanks for reading, apologies if it’s a really silly idea - but, is it?
