Zero and infinity

Contemplating about the universe’s origin brings in mind extreme proportions. The latest solid theory: ┬áthe BIG BANG is about infinite mass, condensed in infinitesimal area that suddenly exploded 13.7 billion years ago to create our known universe.

A few questions arose from this theory:

If there was matter from the start, who or what created it? The easiest way is to say GOD and move on, but science is based on solid facts, it’s very hard to analyze facts from 1,000 years ago, let alone tracing details originated 13.7 billion years ago. The BIG BANG theory cannot explain what had been before the explosion or what had caused it.

How comes that the entire universe matter was condensed in such a small area?

The quantum theory, based on Einstein’s findings, speaks about constant flow between matter and energy, so may be in those critical seconds all the physic laws on which our science is based were not relevant, it might be that there had not been matter at all but only pure energy that condensed into matter and then become energy again by explosion.

Are there boundaries to the universe?

The universe needs other vocabulary than borders, limits or boundaries, Boundaries exist only in human minds. A proved fact is the expansion of the universe, not only that but it expands in higher rate today than years ago and it will expand even faster in the future, so the universe’s expansion determines its size. The size, quantity of matter and astronomical distances are not in the realm of human beings, one light year is about 6,000 billion miles, the diameter of our galaxy, the MILKY WAY is about 50,000 light years, we can think and write about those facts, but we cannot really grasp the meaning of astronomical figures, in this case we are the infinitesimal ruminating about the infinite.

But by contemplating upon those matters it seems that zero and infinite are much closer, you can’t have one without the other as you can’t have light without darkness. Most of our universe is void but it contains within it infinite mass and energy, most of our universe is dark, but within it rare light dots that from closer look appears to be majestic galaxies and nebulae, in this scale a human being is unnoticed but still human beings ask questions about their origin, and from infinitesimal stand point they can contemplate upon their location in the ray of creation.

Have magic in your life
