QUANTUM

FOAM AND ME

Every Thing has a beginning Nothing exists except atoms and empty space; everything else is opinion. Democritus The origin of the Universe also involves the question of creatio ex nihilo, creation out of nothing. Parmenides, of course, opposed creatio ex nihilo for "nothing comes out of nothing". Major religions are split on the issue with mainstream Christian faiths supporting the ability of the Creator to create out of nothing (although this begs the question of whether God Himself counts as pre-existing matter). Other faiths believe that the Universe was constructed from pre-existing, primordial matter, such that the pre- Universe was eternal and our "bubble" was created (Gensis 1:6 alludes to a pre-existing water that matter is constructed from).   Modern physics is perfectly happy with creatio ex nihilo meaning that things began as a zero-energy Universe, negative energy will become dark energy and positive energy will becomes matter, the sum equals zero. This is not a statement on a `cause' behind the origin of the Universe, nor is it a statement on a lack of purpose or destiny. It is simply a statement that the Universe was emergent, that the actual of the Universe probably derived from a indeterminate sea of potentiality that we call the quantum vacuum, whose properties may always remain beyond our understanding.   The quantum vacuum is the ground state of energy for the Universe, the lowest possible level. Attempts to perceive the vacuum directly only lead to a confrontation with a void, a background that appears to be empty. But, in fact, the quantum vacuum is the source of all potentiality. For example, quantum entities have both wave and particle characteristics. It is the quantum vacuum that such characteristics emerge from, particles `stand-out' from the vacuum, waves `undulate' on the underlying vacuum, and leave their signature on objects in the real Universe. http://abyss.uoregon.edu/~js/ast123/lectures/lec17.html   With realization of one's own potential and self-confidence in one's ability, one can build a better world. Dalai Lama   Note that this inflation was effectively at more than the speed of light, but since the expansion was on the geometry of the Universe itself, and not the matter, then there is no violation of special relativity. Our visible Universe, the part of the Big Bang within our horizon, is effectively a `bubble' on the larger Universe. However, those other bubbles are not physically real since they are outside our horizon. We can only relate to them in an imaginary, theoretical sense. They are outside our horizon and we will never be able to communicate with those other bubble universes.   Might this also be true of consciousness? Notice how this solves the horizon problem in that our present Universe was simply a small piece of a larger Big Bang universe that was all in causal connection before the inflation era. Other bubble universes might have very different constants and evolutionary paths, but our Universe is composed of a small, isotropic slice of the bigger Big Bang universe.   Note also that each of these bubbles can contain an infinite amount of space. How can a finite, bounded region contain an infinite 3D space? Consider the famous Escher print below titled "Heaven and Hell". There are an infinite number of devils and angels in this image, yet all drawn in a finite circle! For bubble universes, this infinite is in 3D space, the megaverse is embedded in 4D space. Thus, the bubbles do not "touch" in 3D space.      
Everything is made from the same stuff Nothing more than potentiality
