Flat space time


Recommended Posts

With the discovery of the Higgs boson scientists have found the particle responsible for defining mass.

 

The movement of this particle through the primordial soup aggregated mass unto itself and the product was a curved space time that we now experience.

 

But was there a flat space time in existence prior to this explosion of gravitational potential energy?

Or was there nothing at all?

 

Please elicit your viewpoint.

According to the experts, the universe, or space-time appears to be flat, or very nearly so, not curved. Where did you hear that space-time is curved?

Mass is not the only thing which will curve space-time.

Higg's bosons only manifest themselves when the Higg's field ( as part of the Higg's mechanism ) becomes active. That is at a particular time after t=0 when the available energy is suitable.

If we knew what happened prior to the Big Bang (what caused it), we probably could be more definitive in our answers, But, all of our known physical laws, including GR (which have so far assumed spacetime to be flat) breakdown at singularities due to the curvature of spacetime.
