The Multiverse Lives :)


"In the most recent study on pre-Big Bang science posted at arXiv.org, a team of researchers from the UK, Canada, and the US, Stephen M. Feeney, et al, have revealed that they have discovered four statistically unlikely circular patterns in the cosmic microwave background (CMB). The researchers think that these marks could be “bruises” that our universe has incurred from being bumped four times by other universes. If they turn out to be correct, it would be the first evidence that universes other than ours do exist."

I've always thought it strange that because our universe is approximately 13.7 billion years old, a something prior to the big bang must have existed even though creating something out of nothing is a normal part of reality as seen through the lens of  quantum mechanics.



Seems the something prior, in this case, may the multiverse, an entity forever creating universes without the limits of time or space, a concept I find far more comforting then the constrained one universe theory we have clung to since the beginning of time.
