the theory, as to where this hyper-quantum
object existed. Or, if it was actually an event
in some much grander and infinitely older
universe, a multiverse, even possibly some
other unknown trans-dimensional state.
Thus, it may not be a literal beginning at
all. It only seems that way to us from our
Earth- centric point of view.
Regardless of these mysteries, the theory
states that at some unknowable stage, this
ultra potent, marble-sized uber-density of
extreme heat/energy went exponential -- in
the truest sense of the word. The singularity
suddenly "inflated", releasing colossal temp-
eratures and pressures, in a calculated time of
10 to the minus 37th of a second:
of a second in time!
At this point, a change of state known
as "expansion" occurred that lasted till 10 to
the minus 11th seconds. This was produced
by an assumed cooling effect continuing
until 10 to the minus 6 seconds. This
development has been theorised to have
manifested exotic pre-nuclear materials
that later evolved into other stuff, from
out of which our material reality came to
be manifested. These became the bits and
pieces of everything we now perceive, such
as galaxies, stars, suns, moons and planets,
until eventually, and extremely recently, us.
The universe, in this miniscule portion
of a second, had by this point "expanded"
into its perceived size becoming nearly 28
billion light years across. That this event
had occurred at a far faster rate than the
scientifically agreed upon speed limit of light
remains an apparently overlooked mystery in
this theory. But this speculative observation
gives us an approximate age for the universe,
which today is estimated to be about 14
billion Earth years old. While undergoing
this process of heat loss and energy
transformation, the singularity suddenly
manifested the potentiality for all phenomena
that followed, including such basic concepts
as time and space, gravity and such
fundamental forces as electro-magnetism.
This universal progression of cooling
then continued into minutes and eventually
into eons of time, as the first stars and
galaxies formed from these hot energy
plasmas, congealing into cloudy nebula of
burning atomic gasses, consisting of early
speculative elements. Elemental materials
swirled into countless millions of galaxies like
our own Milky Way -- uncounted numbers of
them containing billions of stars. As the saying
goes, "The rest is history."
As mind blowing as this theory might
be, it must also account for whatever else
continues to be discovered, measured and
observed in our universe as it undergoes
further scientific study. Subsequently, newer
theories of "Dark Matter " and "Dark Energy"
and "String Theory" have been put forward
to explain things being mysteriously much
more than they seem to be.
Indeed, it seems that material "things" are
only the very smallest part of the observed
universe. Dark Energy supposedly accounts
for 70% of the "energy density" components
of the universe; Dark Matter another 25%;
free hydrogen and helium (the building
blocks of stars) is a mere 4%; and the stars
themselves, all the trillions of them, are
estimated to be only 0.5% of the known
universe. Neutrinos contribute a whopping
0.3%. These elementary particles travel very
close to the speed of light, do not have an
electrical +/- charge and are able to pass
through ordinary matter mostly undisturbed.
They are extremely difficult to detect, having
a minuscule, but not quite less than zero,
mass. Yet there are so many of them that
they amount to 0.3% of the universe. The
remaining part, a meager 0.03%, are the heavy
elements that make up you and me and all
the other stuff we focus upon as "the real
world" of rivers, trees, mountains, oceans
and butterflies, plus all the other planets,
moons, comets, asteroids. You name it.
Oh, and one other thing. The universe, we
are informed, is shaped differently from how
you would probably imagine. The universe
appears to be neither spherical nor round,
but rather a bumpy yet flat 3D landscape,
with an expanding event horizon moving
into the 4th dimension of time that continues
to spread out further and further away from
all the rest of itself -- or so they say.
Perhaps, given this state of affairs, we
might be comforted to imagine ourselves at
home in a spiral arm of our dear old Milky
Way galaxy. We can see her with our own eyes
and even appreciate her dance in cosmic
time, spiralling around her enigmatically
deep core. The Milky Way is a massive
gravitational singularity, which is holding us
eternally spinning within the cosmos, a so
called Black Hole, at her heart.
The universe, too, is a singularity. The
One Song of creation. A One Spirit of cosmic
potentiality providing a matrix to our Being
Becoming. A literally awesome expansiveness
that is expressively manifesting itself, by
constantly generating novel innovations
in its ceaseless replication of its evolving
