Question to Piet on 25th July 2001 : I am getting tired of the world trying to understand the universe and the Big Bang without trying to comprehend SPACE first. Because everything will come and go : there is one constant – SPACE – in which the universe is born – it dies – but Space is constant, immortal, infinite – Is Space God ?
And then again on 26th July :
so why must we look at the big bang to explain the universe – and call it the known universe.
surely it is the unknown universe that will define the known.
It’s what was there BEFORE the big bang that will tell us what the big bang is.
I will write more to u about my confusion on this –
but could the formation of the universe be instantaneous ? rather than formed in in a millionth of a second
could it be the contraction of Space rather than expansion of universe ?
