About energy, string theory and creation.

Updated on February 11, 2017

Unlimited Energy, or Limited?

As far as we know, energy can neither be created nor be destroyed. So, how does a particle get the constant energy to stay in a vibratory mode? If string theory is correct and every particle keeps a miniature string inside it that keeps vibrating constantly, where does this energy come from?

One explanation could be, when any particle is created, it is given immense energy to keep vibrating for very long. However, particles can be converted into energy. So, does the huge amount of energy that is obtained after conversion of matter into energy comes from the energy that is provided to each particle of a matter when it is created?

Another question that is coming to mind is, how much total energy this whole super-universe or the creation has? I have recently read a transcript which says that there are many other universes apart from the one we are living. So, is energy unlimited? I mean is there no total limit of energy? Where does this unlimited energy come from? So, is the theory that energy cannot be created is wrong?

If the theory is correct and energy can neither be created nor be destroyed, the total quantity of energy must be limited. So, what is the total energy of our entire system? Have the scientists found any clue about it?

For a layman, let’s say the Sun creates a certain amount of energy from fusion of hydrogen and helium. Here billions of watts of energy are being obtained from conversion of matter into energy. This is happening constantly in the Sun and there are many other Sun-type system in the universe. That means every moment a huge amount of energy is being created by conversion of matter into energy.

So, while these perishable masses or matter was created, where did it get the whole energy from? The big bang theory does describe that all the energies were converted into matter during the moment of big bang. But, my question is what was the total energy that was released during the big bang?

All these theories point to two conclusions:

1. If energy is limited, there is a total amount of energy of this entire system. What is the total energy of this super universe then?


2. Energy may not be a limited quantity. I mean energy may be created or is being created in some place of this universe. This is more acceptable because if we just think about the matter in this whole super universe, it is just unlimited. There are billions of universes with huge amount of matter in them. So, even just a little thought about the theory implies that there are just super-duper huge amounts of energy in our entire creation.

We even don’t know whether new universes are being created in the entire creation, and it is very possible. So, matter is being constantly converted into energy every moment in the creation. Where does this conversion of matter into energy get the energy from? I mean, if we break 1 gram of hydrogen, we create 616 billion joules of energy. That's about 145 tons of TNT equivalent. Where does this energy come from?

I just got an answer about 1 atom. It says if we break one atom, we get 1 trillionth of a joule or 1/100,000th of an erg of energy. So, is this little energy helping the string of a particle keep vibrating all the time for an indefinite amount of time?

I think, the string theory has some drawbacks.
