I’ve just been reading an article about the high-flying mathematical calculations that are leading some of the world’s best scientists to think that they might be able to uncover actual evidence for a big bang before the one that produced the universe we now live in.
If they are right, the laws of physics in the previous universe are the same as the laws of physics in our own universe today. And if they are right, our own universe will eventually contract, and another big bang will produce another universe, etc. Although the subsequent universes may obey the same laws of physics, they are not carbon copies of each other. In other words, just because we’ve been through this once, doesn’t mean we’ll do it all again in the same way.
Whatever else, I’m not going to write a book about another Big Bang. I don’t think I could fit it into six chunks anyway.
