M-Theory, Superstring Theory, Quantum Physics.

The universe has alway's existed. There was never a begining nor and end. It just was. As we know now, the vacuum of space isn't just "nothing". It's a sea of energy with virtual particle's popping into and out of existence in pairs (quantum physics). These particle's could be nothing more then bit's of vibrating strands of energy (superstring theory). The event that could have caused our universe to "big bang" is described in M-Theory. From what i've read so far into it, two parellel universe's, our's and another residing on a 5th dimensional plane collided with on another with enough energy to create all the matter we see today and the observable effect's of the big bang that we see today. As you can see from this articel www.hep.princeton.edu... it's not entirely impossible for matter to spring forth from energy. While this may not be HOW it happened, it's still a possible way for it to happen that doesn't require the need for any godly power's at all. Just a small understanding of physics.

Just a small understanding of physics? That's all it takes to understand the origin of the universe? I contend that Hawking, Einstein, Newton, et al all possess/possessed "a small understanding of physics", yet as you say, "just a small understanding of physics" has not provided an answer.

One can easily say that at no other time in history has the general population held greater knowledge in "just a small understanding of physics." This is the actual reality of today. So if the postulation is correct - "just a small understanding of physics" - we should then have answers springing forth. They are not. The question of the origin of the universe still escapes our best thinkers despite the fact the search started a few hundred years ago.

It's therefore reasonable to conclude that "just a small understanding of physics" is not enough to help conclude how the beginning started - or "happen", as it was put.

Obviously you've missunderstood the section you quoted. It only take's a small understanding of physics to understand that the thoery outlined is a possibility. Going deeper into the theory however would require more then a small understanding of physics. On the other hand, despite how many theories mankind comes up with, we'll never know what really happened. All we can do is come up with theories. There could be over a 100 differing theories with strong evidence supporting each one, we'll still never know which is right.

I agree with you, but ain't it great bubblegum for the mind?

It is interesting however, that some theories predict certain outcomes and that these outcomes are in evidence today. I guess they then slide from theory to fact.

It is an interesting passtime to be sure.

What we need is some super advanced aliens to come here and tell us their theories. Then we can point and laugh and say gee... your not so advanced if you think that's what really happened! Well, atleast it'll boost our ego :/

And there's also this! www.simulation-argument.com...

We live in an advanced simulated world!
