Brazil Scientist Has New Theory for Universe’s Origin, with No Big Bang

    The Big Bang is a widely accepted explanation for the origins of the universe; however, Brazilian physicist Juliano Cesar Silva Neves has come up with a new “cyclical” theory, which challenges this prevailing concept.

    Neves has proposed a way of overcoming the problem presented by the Big Bang theory, the need for the singularity of spacetime, by doing away with the theory altogether.

    In an article entitled, “Bouncing cosmology inspired by regular black holes,” published in the September issue of the General Relativity and Gravitation journal, Neves puts forward the notion that the universe expands and contracts in a cyclical way.

    “My proposed cosmological model, of course, acknowledges the expansion of the universe and also other known phenomena such as cosmic radiation. For me, the main issue is the Big Bang and the state of initial singularity.

    That is, the [theorized] first stage of the universe’s existence, a state in which the physical and geometric quantities that figure in Einstein’s theory of relativity, do not have a set value.”

    “In the words of mathematicians, these quantities tend toward infinity. This can be perceived as a problem with the theory of relativity, and most of the scientific community thinks that in the future this can be solved with the help of a theory of quantum gravity, which does not yet exist,” Neves explained.

    There is no generally accepted theory for quantum gravity, which would reconcile the theories of general relativity and quantum mechanics. It is hoped that such a theory could provide a satisfactory description of the microstructure of spacetime at the so-called Planck scale, the universe’s minimum limit, beyond which the laws of physics break.

    “However, the problem of initial singularity can be solved without resorting to quantum theories, as I show in my work. In this model, there is no moment in the initial phase during which these quantities would have infinite values, and in addition, that phase is not necessarily the first one.

    “That is, I reject the idea of the explosion and propose instead a rebound or ricochet. If that exists, then before the current expansion of the universe there was another, previous phase. If the universe is currently expanding, it means that before that it contracted.”

    “On that basis, it’s possible to construct a cyclical model, where the universe experiences successive phases of compression and expansion,” Neves declared.

      Brahmajāla Sutta

      1. The All-embracing Net of Views

      “Herein, bhikkhus, a certain recluse or brahmin, by means of ardour, endeavour, application, diligence, and right reflection, attains to such a degree of mental concentration that with his mind thus concentrated he recollects his numerous past lives: that is, (he recollects his past lives throughout) one aeon of world-contraction and expansion, throughout two, three, four, five, or ten aeons of world-contraction and expansion. (He recalls:) ‘Then I had such a name, belonged to such a clan, had such an appearance; such was my food, such my experience of pleasure and pain, such my span of life. Passing away thence, I re-arose there. There too I had such a name, belonged to such a clan, had such an appearance; such was my food, such my experience of pleasure and pain, such my span of life. Passing away thence, I re-arose here.’ Thus he recollects his numerous past lives in their modes and their details.

      Just like vastness of the universe and its mysterys,there will be crores of explanation for the existence of the universe, but alas,no one will be able to correctly explain the true cause of its existence. It is like building a house with playing cards. After some stage the cards will fall down again and again. Because, someone there doesn’t want us to know their secrets.

      This isn’t new. Look up Beyond the Big Bang. Wonderful boom

      This is called the “Yo-yo” theory. Where the universe inflates and collapses repeatedly. It makes no mention of the possibility of multiverses.. ( For which there is real evidence to their existence). Moreover It makes no reference to when it all started.!

      So relax unwind yourself, enjoy your Sunday afternoon. Enjoy the thoughts of DRAKE, SAGAN, COX, EINSTIEN and HAWKINS. Dare to dream, like the author of this Brazilian article, well done colleague!

      I think this hypothesis is not a new one. It is already known as ‘big bounce’.

        True. Probably detailed math was worked out only now
