Let’s imagine the largest theoretically possible apocalyptic catastrophe, that could in theory occur – Without violating the laws of physics; An unimaginable humongously large black hole, consumes our entire Universe, in what’s often referred to as the “big crunch”. What would happen?
Well, actually we know what would happen in such a scenario, due to Leonard Susskind’s work. As we approached the event horizon of this singularity, time itself would yield, and all information in the universe, about every single event that has ever occurred during its life time, would literally get “stuck” at the borders of the event horizon, like an “echo” of its existence – As time slowly starts going more and more slowly, from our universe’s point of view. For an outside observer, we would simply disappear, out of the outer structure, the multiverse. But from our point of view, from within the universe itself, it would appear as just another “normal day”. In fact, it would feel as if anything special was about to happen at all! We probably wouldn’t even notice it in fact!
However, due to the laws of physics, which Susskind predicted, and proved – None of the information within our universe would disappear from the multiverse superstructure. This would result in that every single event that has ever occurred, during the entire lifespan of our universe, would still exist – As the event horizon of this black hole, would grow with the exact same size, as the entire size of every single event that has ever occurred during our Universe’s existence. Hence, all events that has ever happened in our Universe’s lifespan, would exist simultaneously, side by side, almost like a “log” of everything that has ever happened. Our universe’s collective amount of events, would literally be “frozen in time and space”, and no new events could ever again occur in our universe.
Of course, no new information could possibly be created, since the universe would ipso facto be gone, and no new events could possibly happen – But none of the existing events would disappear. Susskind proved this, due to his theory of how no information, even when swallowed by a black hole, actually disappears from our Universe. Hence, the sum of information, for some weirds reasons, seems to be constant.
If we assume that the multiverse superstructure that our Universe exists within, obeys by the same laws of “constant information”, a lot of really weird things can all of a sudden easily be explained. Simply because, the above explanation, gives us an accurate description of the “whys” of possibly the largest scientific discovery of the 20th century; Space time!
Einstein proved that space and time, was a single structure, and that ell events that can possibly occur, both in our future, and our past, exists in a 4 dimensional structure, known as “space time”. As far as I know, he never attempted to give an answer to why though. However, the above thesis, actually becomes a relatively good explanation of *why* space time exists, which seems to be a natural law, woven into the very fabric of our reality. In addition it also gives us a reasonably good answer to a lot of other weird phenomenas, such as nonlocality, superposition, quantum entanglement, etc, without violating the laws of “classic physics” – Simply because, inside of such a black hole, all matter that ever existed in the original universe, would be condensed into a tiny singularity. Hence, it easily explains why information can travel faster than light, and so on. Simply because no information actually does travel at all. The feeling of that information “travels”, is simply nothing but an “echo”, or “distant memory”, of something that occurred eons ago! Meaning the size of our universe, would be a single quanta, or a singularity. So information could travel apparently from one end of the universe, to the other end of the universe, covering apparently billions of light years, within the fraction of a second – Simply since it doesn’t move at all! Basically, the distance from one end of the universe, to the other, would be a single quanta!
“Spooky action at a distant” – Is all of a sudden easily explained!
From such a point of view, our existence, and the existence of our entire universe in fact, would be simply nothing but a “memory” of the thing that existed *before* we entered this singularity. And the universe would in fact, from a fundamental point of view, actually not exist – But only be a “vague memory”, or an “echo of information”, about events that occurred, possibly eons of “time” ago, outside of our current existence. If talking about “time” even makes sense within such a context – Which it probably doesn’t for the record.
This explains a lot of other weirds things, such as the fact that our universe seems to be simply a “projection” of a reality outside of itself, within a higher superstructure, which projects the universe into existence, almost the same way a movie projector, projects a movie unto a screen.
So how could we possibly even create a theory about this, if it is impossible to observe, impossible to predict, and no new information could be acquired inside of our universe then? Meaning, the very notion of me simply “thinking” about this idea, to some extent would be the proof of that it is not true …?
Well actually, other events, from outside of our universe, could actually put new information into this singularity, by feeding it in through the event horizon. Basically supplying new data, from the outside of our existence, into our existing singularity – The same way we could send a “probe” into a normal black hole. “Outsiders”, or outside events to be more accurate, could basically “notify us”.
So, does the universe exist?
Probably not! Einstein and Niels Bohr postulatet two contradicting theories, which can probably only be explained, by realising the universe doesn’t in fact exist!
So the unified theory of science, basically assumes that the Universe does not exist! 😉
