Very deep question ... I have some possible answers .. so please bare with me on the technical details.
1stly the likelyhood of an entirely new universe bootstraping itself ..like a whitehole ... out of the vacuum ... where according to science there ARE
massive amounts of virtual pair particals that emerge spontaneously out of the base fabric of the cosmos and then annihilate each other [preserving
energy parity]... is VERY LOW .. because a universe already exists here PRESENTLY and that means that the COSMOS itself has a very HIGH probability of
existing at the same time and therefor there is no existential NEED for another universe to be created here as we already have one ... and that is
2ndly It is far more likely that if a unverse was created close by and within but seperate [ie ... has its OWN set of physical laws etc] to this
current universe that we inhabit ... that it would be generated either at the extreme of gravity around a blackhole [think hawkings radiation] OR at
the very other extreme .. inside the heart of one of those massive billion light years across voids that are expanding ever faster [due to lack of
gravity and the very fast flow of time due that very lack of stated garvity within those voids.
3rdly The universe is expanding at a rate of 70km per Mega parsec [thats 1million parsecs and a single parsec is about 3.5'ish light yrs in
cosmological distances ... so about 3.5million light yrs ..and for comparison the milkyway galaxy is about 150million light years in diameter.] PER
EVERY second of OUR local time that passes relative to our own observational advantage point here on the eart and in this specific solar system at
this point in the universal time line.
Now that means the actual fabric of space is stretching apart in all 4Dimensions ... and we know this already happens at a local scale by earths
orbit around our Sun and due to the effects of the event horizon of blackholes.
So it isn't too hard to think about that happening on a cosmological scale.
I calculated the speed at which the comoving event horizon of the observable universe is moving away from me at the center of this universe ... which
I collapse/create by purely observing it ... and that is a FANTASTIC rate of 3.5 light seconds expansion ... every second in all 4Dimensions... and
the bigger the universe appears to be ... feeds back into the cosmological constant [aka cosmological inflation .. or the MOMENTUM of the big bang
singularity folding in on itself ... becuase there is nowhere else to go ... the cosmos IS all of existence sopls note that the cosmos is at least 1
x 10^130 BIGGER than what we can just see .. which is the observable universe!
:wow ] becuase it is based on distance alone .. so if space gets
bigger .. that bigger number feeds back into the equation and we get even more expansion and this is the reason I believ that even if a new universe
apeared close by ... that it would never catch up with us ... similar to if it was out of pahse with time in this universe .. if its a little ahead in
time.. we will never catch it... and if its behind us in the past .. it will never catch up with us [assuming that laws work the same in both
universes] in the present.
Personal Disclosure: It might not destroy them at all ... but merely push them out of the way as we know that the fabric of the universe can gets its
panties in a bunch even without another new simultaneously existing universe to complicate things with ... and what is to say the two would mix in the
As for the telescope seeing exploding matter headed earths way ... sure .. just wait 5billion yrs for the expanding red sun to cook earth bone dry ..
we don't need to go invoking entirely new universes as yet as occams razor means that both dark matter and dark energy are a part of this universes
particular make up and so even if OUR universe is the one that is exploding ... continually .. at about 3.5light seconds every single second we
expeince here on earth [btw that is about an entire atoms diameter that everything expands at our local level and scale of 1m/1kg/1s ... every 30yrs
approximately ... but our local scale rulers also expand by that much over the same period of time .. and consequently we don't notice this as
obvious at this local scale ... its only noticible when looking at the entire ob servable universe as a whole .. and thats when we3 find that it is
not 13.7billion light yrs across in radius [x2 for daimeter = 27billion light yrs] but is a fantastic 45billion light yrs in radius [90billion light
yrs in diameter ... the cosmos itself is far far bigger ... bigger than we can see
] or about 6 x more volume than would have been guessed at by
just using the age of the known universe local to us.
