The universe is big. "big" what is that? a size, distance, density, composition? What steers the perception into quantifying an "infinite" concept as
"all" into the confines of a finite word like "big".
If I asked you to walk across 10 football fields you would consider the distance before answering me. You would quantify the effort, (Energy/
Exertion) required. You can do this having seen at least one football field with some degree of scaling (trees, buildings, people along side it)
What if I ask you to "walk" across the universe? You would consider completely different things altogether. Time and distance would be of foremost
concern. Thinking linearly of times progression, and our own perception of time elapsing across ventured distances ( boat ride, walking a route, daily
You would say no because I can't live that long. It would take too long to walk across it even if I walked at light speed.
You would be right so I would give you a little something and all of a sudden you are immortal. Tada!. SO,
You would consider the distance. You might still say no. You would say that since the universe is expanding faster than you can travel from a
perceived "center" out, that you could never reach from end to end. Your starting point would now be somewhere closer to the middle. Your destination,
the "end of the universe" would never get closer. It would always be "faster" than you. That is thinking linearly of time and matter progressing from
a big bang center out. Like a shock wave of creation.
Well here is point one. The big bang has not stopped. It is still happening. Our perception of "progress" through time and space is warped by our
looking glass lives.
The most important moment in the history of everything was this one time, when the universe formed. Everything there after is just matter and energy
in a swirling dance of gravity and time. Energy and matter converting into each other. Matter condensed so dense that it explodes with the workings of
a whole universe in all its varied components.
When did that happen? Any measurement we take would be only an indication of how well we measure, not an actual date. Let's take a look at the Earth's
crust for example. It renews itself daily. Slowly but surely everything on earth is sucked underneath and melted down and recycled back up. That's why
we wanted moon rocks to tell us how old we could be. What if the moon is "recycled" as well through some unseen system of renewal?
What if in 1 google years from now all the matter of the universe is similarly recycled? How can people from then after "know" how old the universe
is? can they measure a single grain of sand and "know" what transformations it has undergone in all its existence before and thereafter. How can you
tell then? All you can measure is your ability to measure.
Here is point 2. Since time is relative to matter then the event with the greatest concentration of mass and density would have the most exaggerated
time ever. Those gravitational pressures' would literally be eternal.
We think it is an expansion. What if it is like a sun? A swirling ball of renewing energy to matter conversions, itself part of a greater system of
mater and energy that create time. Let's focus on "Our" perception of time at least.
The measure is adapted throughout the "event horizon" and out to compensate for loss of matter. As the universe expands time slows down as relative to
the matter present. The net force of the gravity created by the density of matter is what creates time.
Time does not exist for "energy". If we say that there is at least as much energy as matter then half of the universe does not exist at any given
moment to be "measured". The system then has to be understood first so as to understand the true concept of time.
Time passes through matter. Matter passes through time.
There is a release from time / gravity when matter is converted into energy. Well since creation entails energy "creating" matter, the universe. Then
any act of matter creating energy is part of the original big bang.
The smaller you go, the farther back in time you go. Time is not linear. Our perception of it is constant because our distortion of it is constant.
The earth is only so heavy. The more dense something is, the more time is distorted around it.
If you go infinitely dense and infinitely small, you go to the original moment of the "big bang". Time is relative to matter.
