    Thx for the link.
    As far as 'time' goes, I refer to "All that exists is NOW. There is no past. There is no future. There is only NOW."
    And that time is a human construct to explain a phenomenon we don't understand


    Word's out huh?

    VERY COOL LINK!!!
    I wish this quote could be splattered on every thread at SciForums:

    This is an easy one. An infinitely dense point-space is "something"

    . Of course that original theory doesn't address what surrounds the point. No inferences, implications, or even speculations.

    While inflationary theories and M-theory have different foci, they are compatible. M-thoery tends to propose that brane inflation is a result of throat blistering, handle wraps, and collisions in Calibi Yao space.

    Exciting it is yessum.

    The only way a system can lose energy if there is another system to accept it. Also, with the very real gravitational force what is currently called "dark matter" and the sea of virtual particle energy at our universe's disposal, there is still ample room for a rather crunchy outcome to our universe.

    You might be right. When the quantum world is examined at very small scales, time seems to just disappear.

    I think I saw a youtube video on it :blbl:.

    You are exactly right. With due respect, if you call an implied "point space" containing all of the energy of our known universe "something" then we have to talk about if you think that anything is impossible. I was hoping you would agree that the "zero volume" part of the phrase "zero volume infinitely dense point space" was equivalent to "nothingness".

    But I am glad you acknowledge that if our famous "BBT point space universe" can be called "something", then are you not completely comfortable that there was nothing surrounding it. It is almost a paradox but we know that "we can't know so it is worthless to speculate" is the common response.
    I can't disagree. In the line of reasoning, forward thinking on all of the most likely alternatives, i.e. speculation, is not all "idle" or "wild". Reasonable and responsible speculation isn't anti big bang theory at all. Modifying existing cosmology is how the game of change is played, and in my view there are a few modifications needed once in awhile just to show that the scientific method is still being applied. Only noteworthy changes make the press level where most people get their dose of science

    , and they need to be given a tid bit every once in awhile to help with public support.

    There are many things that are impossible of course. One of those impossibilities is the existence of "nothing".

    Zero volume means the corresponding quality (volume) has no quantity. Infinitely dense means the corresponding quality (density) has all quantity. Put 'em together and you've got a serious case of "something" there.

    It's not even a matter of comfort. Any inflationary theory that examines what's outside our universe shows that quite a bit of "something" is there. In fact there is no theory that proposes "nothing" is real.
