I have always taken an interest in ideas explaining why or how or universe exists. I have read about and have been taught many of the theories out
there. I am creating this thread as a place to disscuse, share philosophies, share thoughts, and share knowledge on why and how our universe is the
way it is. Also, to share any thoughts, ideas, or philosophies on what our universe is doing.
I would like to start it with a theory of my own. I am currently in grade 12 chemistry and physics. So, my ability to explain or create theories with
great scientific detial is limitted. This theory then is more of a philosophical ponder then and actual theory. I call it the Chaos Inverse Theory.
My Chaos Inverse Theory is based on the idea that the universe as a whole is evolving and the idea that we humans were not always here. In school and
in books about quantum mechanics, I came across entropy. Entropy is the idea that things(Objects, particles, ect.) move from order to disorder. I
however disagree with this. I believe that they are actually moving to order. To we humans common day idea of order, it may appear that things are
moving to disorder but, I believe that if you were to look at the whole universe at once; the universe is actually ordering its self.
I watched a special a few years ago about the origin of the universe. This was about six years ago so, my memory is a bit fuzzy. The special showcased
seven main theories on the universes' origin. One, was a form of the Chaos Theory. It said that the our universe popped into existence like a bubble.
At the start it was very chaotic, the very make up of the laws a physics were not stable. For a amount of time, nothing complex or ordered were able
to exist, such as elementary particles ect. Then after time the universe calmed down and things came into existence, including elementary particles,
then matter, stable laws and behaviors ect.
I base my theory on this growing order. At one point nothing stable existed. Then lets say very basic elementary particles or string orders came into
existence (I don't know if these terms are accurate but, they idea should remain the same. Also note you can place any theories bases here.). As the
universe became more stable, the more stable and complex things formed. After a while stars and planets. Then life.
In this theory I suggest that life is a bench mark. When matter, energy, solar systems and stars first existed, life couldn't. I think life or
consciousness, is a really high form of order. Thus, if our universe was moving to disorder, life would not evolve. I also think that a star is non
order, and a black hole is order. The reverse of the example of an entropy example I read, which stated that a star is order and a black hole is not.
Now, there is our technology. I believe that our computers and other complex tech may actually be living or, will eventually. In biology I learned
that life needs to come from life. We humans creating childern I think maybe that same as us bulding a computer. We force our existance/order/image
onto non living matter. We humans and other life are acting like very advanced and dilluted governing particles. Think about it, look at the internet.
It is an universe all its own. Look at the games, news, videos people creat and interact with. If concousness forms in the web, won't it wonder were
it came from, and how the webverse came to existance. Since the web beings don't know of us, our input into the webverse may seem like governing
particles/laws. This is just far fetching but, still.
Our universe keeps building on its self, then there will be a point of another benchmark in order. Who knows, we may actaully end up creating the next
level of the universe through ourselves evolving, or creating things through technology. After a while I also believe that higher orders of life may
form, over our selves, possibly from our selves. Maybe even dieing, we create more on other levels of the universe. We in turn my be creating gods,
ghosts, and aliens/ufos.
Well, this is just a jitter of my Chaos Inverse Theory. Please comment and post your own ideas, philosophies, theories and ponders about how our
universe exists and where it's heading. Hope you enjoy.

(I am sorry if there is another thread like this, I just wanted a decent thread of my own.)
