What Was Before the Big Bang
The two Science Titans of our times set together one evening and talked about the Beginning of Time…what was Before the Big Bang?.. and other such matters. Famous Astro-physicist Neil deGrasse Tyson interviewed more famous Physicist Stephen Hawking in his talk show “Star Talk” on National Geographic Channel, and the outcome was mind-blowing.
All started with the Big Bang
As you always hear and read that, all the story started with Big Bang, 13.8 billion years ago, there was a very small infinitely dense point in the universe..All the Matter, Energy and even Space were compressed in this small point, then a big explosion occurred and our Universe came to existence …
But you may ask what was there before the Big Bang? Did that small point existed since forever or even it evolved from something on some point of Time?
You will be amazed to know the Hawking’s Answer and your concept and feeling about Time will change forever.
Actually to understand the Hawking’s Answers you have to use the concepts of Euclidean approach, Einstein’s General Theory of Relativity and Imaginary Time as a fourth dimension.
“According to Einstein’s General Theory of Relativity, space and time come together for a space-time continuum which is not flat but curved by the matter and energy in it” Hawking says
Let me explain…Matter, Energy, Space and add Time as fourth Dimension, so as per Einstein’s general theory of relativity all these four elements including TIME forms a Curved surface.
Now look at Euclidean approach of Curved – Closed Surfaces.
Our Planet Earth has a closed surface.. It is a closed surface without end or beginning. If you move towards the south you will reach to South Pole but then there is no south from the South Pole….
Now Professor Hawking says “One can regard ordinary and real time as beginning at the south pole, which is a smooth point of space-time where the normal laws of physics hold”
“There is nothing south of the south pole, so there was nothing around before the Big Bang”
According to Hawking, Time was in a “bent state” in that infinite dense point of Big Bang “it was always reaching closer to nothing but did not become nothing” Think this as decimal numbers 0.1……0.01…..0.001 We are continuously reaching towards the Zero, But we will never reach on absolute Zero….if we take a imaginary Time Machine and go back in that dense point of Big Bang we will never reach to the Absolute Beginning of the Universe!
“There was never a Big Bang that produced something from nothing. It just seemed that way from mankind’s point of perspective” Says Hawking
This is Professor Hawking’s present day Ideas about the Beginning of the Big Bang…
I remember in one of his documentary he said that “You Need a place to stand to create the Big Bang..But time and space itself started on the point of Big Bang” so he subtly suggested that there is no Creator of the Universe…No Grand Design….
But what he missed in his theories that what if there is at least two Universe..And the Creator is standing in first Universe….and why you need to stand in paper if you want to make a dot with your pencil..
According to Mankind’s Perspective of Time …it all began 13.8 Billion years ago..but if you go inside that dense point .. And you have to go ..Because there is not any space and Time outside it..So in that point time was also in a infinitely dense state!
Star Talk is first-ever late night “Science talk show” hosted by Neil deGrasse Tyson, airs weekly on National Geographic. In this show, Tyson discusses scientific topics in interviews and expert panel discussions.
