The creation of the Universe

Updated on September 27, 2009

How could our Universe start from a singularity?


I have been doing a lot of reading about the big bang, black holes, and singularities. I find the work of Stephen Hawkings so fascinating. My mind has just been running amok with possible scenarios regarding the start of the Universe.

The belief is that the Universe has started from a singularity. One microscopic bit of matter that is so unbelievably dense, it is hard to even conceptualize. In an effort to try to give a mental description of how dense this singularity had to be, imagine a single grain of sand. Now imagine this single grain of sand weighing as much as the planet Earth. Mind boggling? Now Imagine all of the matter in the Universe packed into a grain of sand. That is the beginning of our Universe.

What could have caused this densely packed singularity? Where did it come from? How could there be just one microscopic, unimaginatively dense, bit of matter? I have a theory about this, how scientific I cannot be sure. There is much I do not know concerning physics, but here goes.

Black holes as most of us know are one of the most powerful forces in the known Universe. Not even light can escape them, which in its own right is still amazes me. Now, all of the matter, light, and everything else that gets consumed by this black hole has to go somewhere. Inside the black hole is where I believe the singularity begins. All of this matter is slammed into a small microscopic dense particle. The more the black hole consumes, the more dense the particle on the other side becomes, hence, ultimately determining the density of the particle, and determining the size of the universe it will eventually create. Now I am not certain as to when or how the inside of the black hole, or singularity, deviates from the outside of the black hole. Could it be at the death of the black hole? Is this when all of the matter condensed into a super dense singularity separates from the front side? After all whatever goes into a black hole can not escape. As the black hole rapidly shrinks and dies, it cuts ties with what it has consumed. What was consumed is nothing more than an ultra dense particle in an alternate universe, or dimension.

So now we have this dense particle, in an alternate dimension/universe, but what causes it to explode? Could this particle somehow become unstable when the connection with the black hole is severed? I believe this to be quite plausible. Now that the black hole has died, and severed the connection with the singularity it is essentially on its own, and becomes increasingly unstable. Unstable to the point it explodes. Which in turn begins a new universe.

I believe there could be many universes that exist on many different plains, and the size of them varies according to the size and strength of the black hole that originally created the singularity.

If this theory was correct or even a possibility it technically answers nothing. All it does is lead to more questions. Its a rabbit hole that never ends. An infinite chain of events that has no true beginning, or at least one that could ever be solved, or perhaps even comprehended. So in turn, even if we discover the truth about our universe it doesn't answer everything, we could end up finding we are even smaller and less significant then previously imagined.

There is always going to be another question to answer. Although I applaud Stephen Hawking in his search for a theory for everything, I feel that once one question is answered, there is always another one to replace it. We may feel we are getting closer to finding the answer to the ultimate question, where did we come from and how did we get here? But in reality we could be just scratching the surface of this question. Think of it like this. We first discovered about our solar system we were like wow, this is huge, we need to know more. Then we discovered galaxies, then more galaxies, then we realized how big and far apart all of this stuff is. So the more we find and the deeper in the hole we go, the less significant we realize we are. Now we are able to see to almost the point of the big bang, but instead of thinking that is the beginning, maybe we should be thinking that is just another stepping stone into the possibility of something on an even grander scale. I dont think we will ever find the answers we are looking for, only more questions that lead us further down the infinite rabbit hole.

      Well first off, you are asking me a question that not even the most brilliant astrophysicists can answer. If I knew where it all began I guess I would be a genius.

      But you should have read in my blog what I believe. I have explained that every black hole could possibly begin a new Universe. Meaning our Universe could have began from a black hole that formed in another Universe. Hence, although we are searching for answers as to how the big bang came about, if and when we find out, it will only lead to more questions such as the ones I mentioned, and the ones you are asking. This is why I used the analogy of the proverbial "rabbit hole."

      Where'd the massive star that collapsed to make the Black Hole come from?

      Black Holes are caused by massive stars that use up all of their energy and collapse in on themselves. The gravity of the collapsing star is so great it creates a black hole which no matter can escape from, including light.

      The singularity is what is at the center of the black hole. The spot where everything comes to a point. The mass of the black hole can become so dense, that the matter can be condensed until it reaches zero, or a negative diameter. A singularity is a mass with no dimensions or infinite.
