I was just watching the elegant universe and started to think some things... since i'm pretty baked i didn't want to forget, so i wrote them down. Anyway, i'm bored and i haven't posted on here yet so i decided to post them. Hopefully a few of you will find these musings interesting. The big bang was Quantum theory coming through. There had been nothing; quantum theory stated that there could be something else and in a parallel universe there was something else. We are one of those parallel universes, where something happened. That something was the big bang; remember, with Quantum Theory, everything is possible and before the big bang, NOTHING HAPPENED. THERE WAS NO TIME. Probably (infite-1) years. SO thats unending years, minus 1. Or it could have been 2 years, but there was a chance that it owuld happen. SO it did happen, because it had to be possible. Now what happened is unclear; there could have been a box with our universe in it that decided to appear and explode, letting our universe out. Or something else could have happened, but because so much is possible i don't think it is or ever will be possible to explain exactly what happened that caused the creation of the universe. The point is, something happened. Expanding upon the universe... There is one big universe, where nothing happens. Time passes so fast, it doesn't exist. There is nothing there. However, according to quantum thory, everything possible will take place in a parallel universe. Therefore, there are thousands of other universes out there where so much stuff can happen. This could be why people age; as they split so many times into different universes, their atoms 'get tired', 'get sore', i don't know, something like that. Thats all for now... let me know what you think!
