The tree of life has been used to describe many parts of our existence through religion, philosophy, mythology and is a mystical concept alluding to
the interconnectedness of all life on our planet. What I purpose here is that we are actually living within the tree of life itself.
Science says that our universe started with a ‘Big Bang’ with matter and anti-matter all stuffed into a singularity. That moment of the Big Bang
was the beginning of time and space. Ever since I heard the explanation that everything we know and see was crammed into a space smaller than an atom,
I had a problem with that. It just doesn’t make sense. So though out my life I’ve try to find an explanation that actually made sense. That moment
came when I heard of the tree of life.
We’ve all seen those pictures of our universe compared to a brain cell and also all the pictures of fractals within nature.
The problem I have is that I don’t think too many people have truly realized the potential implications of these findings.
Come with me as we take a trip from the beginning of our universe to what it is today, all from the perspective of a humble tree.
The start of our journey begins with the singularity
Modern science has told us that every minute piece of matter in our universe is compressed into this incredibly small space. But I challenge that
notion in the way of thinking that every part of a tree that will ever be is compressed into a single tiny seed. To anyone with a brain between their
ears this thought would be preposterous. Of course every part of what a tree could be is NOT crammed into a tiny seed. What I am purposing is that the
singularity did not hold ALL the matter of the current universe inside it, rather it held the essential information/instructions for what and how our
universe would grow.
Next we have the formation of stars and galaxies. But before we have any life sustaining galaxies, they are all VERY close to each other or in other
words they are super clusters.
So as the millennia go past we now have quaint galaxies, stars and planets.
Galaxies I will equate to branches off of the main trunk.
Here are some wonderful solar systems.
And here we find some amazing planets
Now we get down to us. There are many different animals and life forces on our planet and I believe we all play a roll, just as all the bacteria and
life processes within a plant cell play a roll. If we destroy our planet, it won’t destroy all the other planets. Just as if one cell in a leaf dies
not all the other plant cells die. We are one small piece of a much larger plant cell within a leaf within a branch within a tree.
The part of our universe that has always dumbfounded scientist and astronomers are black holes. But I believe I have found out there purpose. Much
energy and information is taken into a black hole never to return. Some grow to enormous size while others fizzle out and stop their rampage. If we
continue our analogy of our universe compared to a tree it is quite easy to see what a trees ‘black hole’ is………..Fruit
Now many have theorized that black holes are a junkyards of matter, portals to different areas of our universe or even to different universes all
together. But I believe they are stores of information that is gathered to help form separate universes from our own just as fruit that falls from
tree contain the information of the tree from which it came to help create new trees.
Now we come to a few other aspects of our universe that our modern science has trouble explaining that can be helped from the thought of a tree.
Such as the expansion of our universe. Astronomers state that our universe expanded incredibly fast at the beginning and then started to slow down.
Much like a tree growing from a seed to a sapling to a full grown tree. But now astronomers are saying that the further they look the faster the
universe is racing away from us. Once again this is easily explained via the life of a tree. If you are on the edge of a tree on leaf (A) trying to
look at leaf (B) somewhere in the middle of the tree, leaf (C) that is on the other side of the tree will seem to be moving away at a faster rate than
Long with that notion is another question that has plagued many astronomers and that is the ability to look far enough into space which would also
mean back in time to the point of seeing the big bang itself. Once again that idea is ludicrous because there is no way that a living cell within a
tree could ‘witness’ its beginnings. IE: the moment of sprouting from the seed.
Now for one of the big fears that keep astronomers up at night and that is how will our universe end. Some theorize that eventual gravity will take
back control and pull all matter back together which in their own terms is called the ‘big crunch’. While others argue that the universe will just
keep expanding into nothingness until there is nothing left which has been coined the ‘big freeze’ If we are to think of our universe as a tree we
can see that both of these ideas are just plain silly. A tree would not eventually collapse back down on itself nor would it grow so big that it would
disintegrate itself. Possibly the universe just continues to grow until its life cycle is over or something comes ago to end it prematurely.
With this idea it become easier to grasp the thought of multiple universes and altered physics within them. All you have to do is look at a forest of
Each tree is in of itself its own universe while just a short distance from it lays a completely different universe that may have completely different
aspects that make it tick. Such as how the leaves look, how long the banches will grow, will it bear fruit or not.
By taking this model into consideration it would seem that the idea of the sigularity containing all the matter of the universe, it is more like the
singularity contained the 'information' for our universe and it grew much like a tree.
This is my rough outline for how I believe our universe works. Constructive criticism and conversation welcome.
