Before The Big Bang; Before The Universe Existed:
The only way the universe is possible is if it’s infinite. It TRULY takes an INFINITE amount of time to go from NOTHING to THIS. If the universe weren’t infinite in it’s possibilities, the statistical probability that matter, life, consciousness, and intelligence could exist is at all, is absolute ZERO. Only in a universe where ALL IS POSSIBLE can complex matter, of any degree, exist. Fundamental particles can not even exist without a very long list of otherwise impossible requisites in place. Without the physical forces of the universe, nothing can occur, and the fact that physical forces exist at all, let alone in the perfect values required for matter, elements, life, and consciousness, is downright IMPOSSIBLE without an INFINITE amount of time.
THIS universe, with these specific quantified values of the physical forces and all of it’s wondrous activity, is 14 billion years old; before this universe, there were others. AN INFINITE number of others, which were nothing at all like this universe. We will talk more about THIS version of the universe later. The ORIGIN of THIS universe is simple and quite easily explained; This universe began as a singularity point which “exploded” in to the ever expanding universe we observe today, and we call this event “The Big Bang”. But where did this “singularity” come from? What came BEFORE the Big Bang. This is a question that science and spiritualists have not been able to answer.
What was the initial value of the universe?
The PROTO-UNIVERSE has always existed and always had a value of INFINITE potentiality;
Time, as defined by a sequence of change; even in a universe with no physics, there is still a causal sequence of events.
The FIRST version of the Proto-Universe began as an infinite POTENTIALITY, or we should say, infinite POTENTIALITY always existed; this is hard to comprehend, a world where NOTHING is possible yet simultaneously, EVERYTHING is possible.
When did the Proto_Universe transition from POTENTIAL to ACTUAL? It observed itself.
In an infinite space time continuum(forwards and backwards), there was no time, all times existed simultaneously and yet never at all. You can say that this moment was infinitely long, a “unified” ball of time/energy/potential forces that realized itself and yet hadn’t realized itself for an almost infinite amount of time, until a potential and random fluctuation in that UNIFIED non-entity resulted in the first emergent property and the basic building block of the universe; consciousness. At this point, the Proto-Universe becomes a UNIVERSE.
Over an almost infinite amount of time (which is just another moment in an ongoing infinite universe), consciousness caused this primordial UNIFIED “point” (known in science as a “singularity”; this was the FIRST SINGULARITY) to “explode”, CAUSING THE FIRST ” BIG BANG”, OF AN ALMOST INFINITE NUMBER OF BIG BANGS. This “event” wasn’t much of a “big” bang, like the one that created our present universe, it was kind of like a rubber band–it started to expand, and then “SNAPPED BACK” having no effective quantification of any definite physical forces yet. This first big bang was chaotic and short lived, as this version of the universe does not yet contain any INFORMATION. So, unsurprisingly, this first version of the universe failed shortly after it’s “explosion”, as a result of unstable physical forces (which would eventually become the fundamental forces of the universe responsible for all subsequent activity).
This first event however was a LEARNING EXPERIENCE for this conscious universe; lasting only a brief nano-second, then violently rushing forward again explosively only to be “smashed” back in to a single unified “point”. Learning from non-local memory, it is now capable of basic informational processes, and thus, the FIRST functional universe finally emerges out of an infinite past of sloppy non-functional universes. The first functional universes emerged after an almost infinite number of oscillations. This early version of the universe was not yet “complete”, but gradually becoming more COMPLEX.
The physical forces of the universe are “formed” and begin to be “calculated”. Using non-local “memory” and basic learning processes of systems, the universe is able to start CALCULATING. Over an almost infinite amount of time, the universe starts to adjust the values of the physical forces of the universe; gravity, electromagnetism, and the strong and weak nuclear forces.
The universe SELF-REPRODUCES via the act of “oscillation”, expanding and collapsing over and over again for an almost infinite amount of time-UNTIL it learns how to make a stable universe! A stable universe that will INEVITABLY give rise to life, consciousness, and intelligence. This is an act of self-replication, a form of copying itself with future modifications. An Asexual universe that “copies” itself via memory, rendering each new version of itself(the universe) different with new “upgrades”. (variations in the values of the physical forces)
This process of expanding and collapsing is known in science as the oscillating universe theory. The universe has expanded and collapsed an almost infinite number of times, with EACH NEW UNIVERSE BEING SLIGHTLY DIFFERENT from the last. This is HOW the universe LEARNED to create a stable universe; After an almost infinite amount of time later, after it finally LEARNED how to control QUALIFY AND QUANTIFY the physical forces of the universe. Not long after the universe learned how to create a stable universe, elementary particles formed, and then the elements, and then the stars, and the galaxies, and the planets.
