"There is a theory which states that if ever anyone discovers exactly what the Universe is for and why it is here, it will instantly disappear and be replaced by something even more bizarre and inexplicable.There is another theory which states that this has already happened."

Well when you look at a time frame that big everything is unstable.

dready zim: This all fits with my view of how things are, universe expands to the point that matter is pulled apart then quantum fluctuations cause another big bang. Of course, the multiverse being rather big, this is happening all the time it`s just that nobody pays any attention because they are too busy admiring their new digital watch.


I've been thinking that we have cyclic renewals, each of which occur before the last "Big Rip" has finished. Each Big Bang expands into a void around which is a halo of very old, very cold matter, or at least the gravity field it left behind. This spacetime curvature increases to infinity, sort of like a gargantuan reverse black-hole. The curvature explains the acceleration of our universe's expansion, as material approaches range of the halo's gravity. As "information" cannot be destroyed, some mechanism, perhaps like a wormhole, brings the information of the matter back to the center. There at the origin, that information causes, or gives form to the quantum fluctuation that we call another Big Bang. The information is reordered, and would appear chaotic to us, but gives rise to it's physical laws and thus seems perfectly coherent to it's occupants. Alternately, quantum fluctuation admits a new supply of matter to this universe, which expands outward and proceeds through this universe into another, as in a sort of pipeline.

You can lock a marine in a room for an hour with nothing but a ball bearing. When you open the door an hour later, the ball bearing will be broken.  The universe is in a room with a board marine.
