Our Universe – a different scenario

Stephen Hawking, the astrophysicist, is said to have declared that the Big Bang sprang out of a “Singularity” of “nothing”.  Out of “nothing”?  There must have been “something”, even a mere “potential”.  After the “Singularity” of the Big Bang, the Universe expanded and, apparently, at an accelerating rate, supposedly for ever and ever.

Somehow, this scenario doesn’t seem right.  A universe that begins out of nothing and ends, ultimately lost in some “nowhere” appears neither elegant nor beautiful.   Yes, “beauty” and a simple “elegance” appears fundamental to all natural phenomena.  Herewith a different scenario:

Starting with yet another Big Bang, the Universe expands along a circular trajectory (space-time being circular).  Galaxies, stars and planets (because of their circular path) ultimately circle back to point zero, where it all began.  Compressed into an ever tighter ball, it explodes in yet another Big Bang, an event which occurs again and again.  One “event” follows another with little change and may be the reason some individuals recall aspects of some previous life.

Perhaps this Universe exhibits consciousness, of which, ultimately, we are part of.   If conscious, perhaps, it may even contain ethical attributes which, ultimately, may be reflected in human behavior. What if our Universe is programmed to produce not just life but intelligence, beauty and ethics?
