the universe begin with a big Bang? Is time still flowing, expanding out from
the big bang center of the Universe, as many say? How can this be so? What
would be the continuing source of this fount? What is it that keeps time
flowing from just one explosive event and when will time run out?
bang proponent British theoretical physicist Steven Hawking says that time will
eventually reverse, collapse back upon its origin and implode inward towards
its beginning by some unknown gravitational force. This, he says, will cause
time to run backwards, assumedly carrying the universe with it, compressing it
all back into a singularity of infinite density.
time is going to run backwards, will people rise from the grave and become
young again, all going back into their mother’s womb, folding into one another
all the way back to the first generation of men and women? Will their nature’s
telescope back into primordial slime from which the human race has supposedly
emerged? Will the earth boil back into lava, collapse and finally compress with
the rest of the universe back into that big clump of infinite density and then
silence? Some say yes, despite the evident absurdity of the whole idea.
time were to stop flowing, the entire universe would vanish in the twinkling
of an eye. Everything: light, heat, stars, galaxies, would "pop" out
of existence without so much as a puff-disappearing into the void of nothingness
from whence it came before God said "Let there be”.
book is about how the universe was created out of "nothing"-rather
than from an exploding infinite density. If the universe were created out of an
existing something or other, we would be then forced to ask an embarrassingly
obvious question: where did that "something" comes from and of what
is composed? With this treatise, this writing, there is no need to ask that
obvious! Un-answerable question, for I will endeavor to show how matter is
created out a "no-thing" but not nothing. The simpler the picture of
creation that is presented, the mote facts it can embrace, while at the same
time reflecting the magnificent harmonious variations of the creation theme.
The more simple music is, the more capable it is of spinning off variations of
its original theme.
