It suggests that the Universe has actually existed forever, rather than forming at a single infinitely dense point as the Big Bang theory suggests. They are clear that this is not a complete theory of quantum physics but say that it can work with future paradigms.

Limitations of the Big Bang Theory

As well as the issue mentioned earlier regarding General Relativity not fitting in with this theory, scientists are also completely unable to say what happened before the Big Bang or what caused it.

Dark Matter and Dark Energy

Ali and Das’ research helps to shed light on some fascinating quantum mysteries, including dark matter and dark energy. These terms were coined by scientists to name the majority of matter in the Universe that we can not explain. Matter as we know it makes up a tiny percentage of the universal content, leaving 95% that we have very little understanding about.

Ali and Das believe that a mind blowing substance is present in the universe, known as the Bose-Einstein Condensate. Put simply it is a dilute gas of bosons cooled to an extremely low temperature. This is thought to be the coldest thing in the Universe, close to absolute zero (0 K or −273.15 °C). Under these extreme conditions, the particles behave in a way consistent with macroscopic phenomena.

The wave patterns within this condensate could provide an explanation for the dark energy content. They suggest that massive gravitons could be the matter that make up this condensate.

Gravitons

So this a quantum fluid that they believe fills the ‘space’ in the universe may be composed of theoretical particles known as gravitons. These particles are thought to emit gravity in the same way that protons transmit electromagnetic energy.

Gravity has infinite range and can bind galaxies together, so the gravitons would therefore have zero mass. Gravity also works in space where there is no electrical charge, meaning that gravitons would be neutral in order to operate. They would also only attract particles rather than repel. Here on Earth, the gravitational pull is relatively weak, especially when compared to electromagnetism. For example the electromagnetic pull between two particles exerts more pressure on them than the gravitational pull.

  1. Interesting. Free energy from the Infinite Vaccum of space. Yet more energy we could be using besides; cold fusion, hemp, hydro, wind, solar, Tesla’s technologies. Why aren’t we there yet? corporations and the sheeple that keep them in business. I say can them all.

  2. I have always wondered how there could be nothing before the big bang. One characteristic of all (small and large) is movement/change. The laws by which this movement/change happens is what we are trying to define. Science needs to have a theory or hypothesis to use as something for our brain to focus on, to create reality. But what is creating the reality? What is the subject and what is the object in these relationships? How do we know what is real outside? Or inside? Again, what is constant across all is movement/change. I believe a focus on that line of thought will give additional insight into our universe. For example, what is a waveform? How is it a real thing? Do we only ‘see’ the result of its movement/change or can we the start? And end? Maybe waveform is movement/change. Wouldn’t that be a revelation? Thanks.

    1. Wow Barry, great comment, fantastic questions. I have never considered whether there is ever a start or end point to a waveform. Thanks for taking the time to reply.
