Over the course of five centuries the word 'matrix' went from wombs to a math problem. We human beings are very deluded with regard to the vocabulary we use to describe the real world. What a devastating problem this is for humanity when they can't figure out if this is real... or a simulation.
When you say "the correlation is still there" you mean the universe contracted when human knowledge contracted? I'm still waiting to see that graph of the universes contraction when human knowledge contracted supporting the correlation, and since no such graph exists, there really is no correlation.
The point is, the curve is still there, the correlation is still there and it is exponential.
Knowledge Doubling Curve
Buckminster Fuller created the “Knowledge Doubling Curve”; he noticed that until 1900 human knowledge doubled approximately every century. By the end of World War II knowledge was doubling every 25 years. Today things are not as simple as different types of knowledge have different rates of growth. For example, nanotechnology knowledge is doubling every two years and clinical knowledge every 18 months. But on average human knowledge is doubling every 13 months. According to IBM, the build out of the “internet of things” will lead to the doubling of knowledge every 12 hours.
I'm referring to your own graph you posted showing that it did; it expanded, contracted, and expanded again. You can't just cherry pick the part of the graph you like and ignore the part you don't like, especially if you're trying to show a correlation. Well you can, but it's not right.

Human knowledge never contracted

I am SO fed up with the "big bang theory". Not that I think it's wrong, but because I think there are other possibilities.
Personally, I think a Big "Collision" is FAR more likely and negates all the debate for those who argue you can't make something out of nothing.
Humanity...suckers destined to be ignorant from the start.
Stop funding "scientists" and "astro-whatevers" and use the money for what really matters in the here and now because all the wishing and wondering will be pointless if we obliterate ourselves anyway.
Conclusion: Insights, implications and applications
Integrating fractal expansion with fractal equilibrium
Beyond fractal equilibrium – in the classical fractal development (Fig. 1) – additional iterations add no more visible information to the (snowflake) shape. Any additional triangles in shape-size are invisible. Fractal equilibrium is at approximately 6 iterations.
When the fractal is inverted, or is viewed from an expansion perspective, this fractal equilibrium is still relevant – it is the iteration count before where the initial triangle (iteration 0) is not visible. Before this point it dominates the fractal ‘horizon’: beyond this point the initial triangle will not be visible.
Fractal information paradox
Fractal expansion gives insight to the decay of information with time: as time goes forward – or as the fractal iterates – information (triangles) is reduced or decays, after approximately 6 iterations, to a value of one – while the area of that last triangle is simultaneously expanded.
An explanation of cosmic phenomena
Fractal expansion may offer a new perspective on observations made and theories formed to the shape a motion of the cosmos.
Beginnings: – the 'Big Bang'
Fractal expansion demonstrates a Big Bang beginning, with rapid expansion, increasing space; faster at the beginning, but there after expanding and an accelerating rate.
Column 2 (note 1) in table 3 shows a greater expansion rate (x12) at early iterations. This 12 at beginning of the ‘expansion factor’ series may have significance to (Alan Guth's teams) 'inflationary universe theory'. This is not the first place the anomaly arises: it also occurs also when calculating elasticity’s of the classical fractal (a basic calculation performed in economic analysis), in both cases coefficients are distorted at and around iteration 0. All fractals are distorted in such a way; they start off large – as if to be a law.
Fractal expansion demonstrates and gives insight to the ‘cosmological constant and/or Hubble’s constant.
Fractal expansion demonstrates multiple beginnings: possible support to discussion surrounding ‘a multi-verse’.
Fractal expansion suggests that these beginnings are inextricably linked to time.
Fractal Expansion offers a different perspective and possible explanation to the ‘Dark Energy’ theory. Rather than being an actual ‘Energy’ Force (which is so far allusive to detection), this analysis shows that it maybe a pure consequence of the fractal nature of the cosmos. It is universal: all fractals (inverted) expand in the way. It suggests that the universe is a kind of 'fractal field' and that fractal geometry is the best method to describe it, and understand it. In the same way as the orbit of the planets (in our solar system) are best described and understood by elliptical geometry, rather than of circular geometry, the Cosmos is best described and understood with fractal geometry.
The inverted fractal may give insight to the structure of the atom – to Lord Rutherford’s 1909 discovery of the 'apparent' emptiness of it.
Reality – value
Fractal expansion offers insight to changes in value over time: the perception to events of ‘things’ increasing in value over time – while simultaneously the event or ‘thing’ decaying in detail.

no we don,t but the believe before the big bang was god created everything and was nothing to do with a big bang but since thats the only thing they can come up with then they have to try fit a god around it
i,m trying to understand how some god was suppose to be not so shy a few thousand years ago but seems to be now.
is he on a summer break?
Whats wrong with believing God caused The Big Bang. Why are atheists scared to believe there is a God?
The first direct evidence of cosmic inflation — a period of rapid expansion that occurred a fraction of a second after the Big Bang — also supports the idea that our universe is just one of many out there, some researchers say.
On Monday (March 17), scientists announced new findings that mark the first-ever direct evidence of primordial gravitational waves — ripples in space-time created just after the universe began. If the results are confirmed, they would provide smoking-gun evidence that space-time expanded at many times the speed of light just after the Big Bang 13.8 billion years ago.
The new research also lends credence to the idea of a multiverse. This theory posits that, when the universe grew exponentially in the first tiny fraction of a second after the Big Bang, some parts of space-time expanded more quickly than others. This could have created "bubbles" of space-time that then developed into other universes. The known universe has its own laws of physics, while other universes could have different laws, according to the multiverse concept.
Infographic: How Inflation expanded the early universe.Inflation is the mysterious force that blew up the scale of the infant universe from sub-microscopic to gargantuan in a fraction of a second. See how cosmic inflation theory for the Big Bang and universe's expansion works in this Space.com infographic.
"It's hard to build models of inflation that don't lead to a multiverse," Alan Guth, an MIT theoretical physicist unaffiliated with the new study, said during a news conference Monday. "It's not impossible, so I think there's still certainly research that needs to be done. But most models of inflation do lead to a multiverse, and evidence for inflation will be pushing us in the direction of taking [the idea of a] multiverse seriously."
Other researchers agreed on the link between inflation and the multiverse.
"In most of the models of inflation, if inflation is there, then the multiverse is there," Stanford University theoretical physicist Andrei Linde, who wasn't involved in the new study, said at the same news conference. "It's possible to invent models of inflation that do not allow [a] multiverse, but it's difficult. Every experiment that brings better credence to inflationary theory brings us much closer to hints that the multiverse is real."
First of all, it's completely hijacking the OP's post and putting a spin on it that he or she apparently didn't intend, and finally, it is promoting this thread as some kind of "nail in the coffin" to creationism without considering the fact that you can't pigeonhole all creationists together (despite how convenient that would be for some of you). The term "creationism" is used to describe people with a broad range of views (including people who believe in God, but also cosmological evolution), and should really be done away with, as anti-theists have practically co-opted the term in order to describe young earth creationists in an effort to make it appear that young earth creationism is the only position held by all Christians, and they are all subsequently stuck in the dark ages. Intellectually dishonest and downright deceitful tactics, ATS.
I believe this physist is grasping at straws. Why do people have this idea that all matter spawned from 1 localized explosion.
