What caused the Big Bang? Were we all entangled at the time of the explosion?

When did The Big Bang occur? What happened at the very beginning?

Discoveries in astronomy and physics have shown beyond a reasonable doubt that our universe did have a beginning: It all started with an explosion known as the Big Bang (BB). It´s the English astronomer Fred Hoyle (1915 - 2001) who is credited with coming up with this name during a 1949 radio broadcast.

The BB theory and the term BB generally refers to the idea that this mysterious universe has expanded from a very hot and dense initial condition at some time in the past, and it continues to expand.

The Big Bang

But when did it occur?

In his lecture, "Life in the Universe", the British theoretical physicist Stephen Hawking says that universe began about 15 billion years ago. Another broadly accepted theory for the origin and evolution of our universe is that the BIG BANG occurred roughly 13.7 billion years ago from an extremely dense and incredibly hot initial state.

Not an explosion

Scientists say that the BB was not a giant explosion. Rather it was an expansion. They discovered that the universe expands just like blowing up a balloon. Imagine this universal balloon expanding from a tiny, tiny balloon to the incredible size of our universe today.

Having discovered this expansion of the universe scientists reasoned that everything at the very beginning would have to be extremely close together and that something just triggered the expansion. The Big Bang marks the instant at which the universe began, when space and time came into existence and all the matter in the cosmos started to expand.

What happened a billionth of a second after the Big Bang?

BUT what happened before the Big Bang took place - before our universe started to expand?

Cosmologist have been trying to figure out this for a long time and one theory that has been more and more accepted as an explanation about what happened before the Big Bang is M-theory.

M theory

M-theory is an idea about the basic substance of the universe. Once it was believed that the atom was the smallest building-block of matter. However - it was later discovered that the atom consisted of even smaller components called protons, neutrons and electrons - subatomic particles.

As it turned out protons and neutrons are also made up of smaller particles. These are called quarks.  This was discovered in the mid 60´s.

M Theory would go even further, but to understand M theory an explanation of the term string theory must be made.

String theory emerged in the 1980s and it showed how all the particles, and all of the forms of energy in the universe, could be constructed by hypothetical one-dimensional "strings".

These small building-blocks would only have the dimension of length and no height or width. Furthermore, string theory suggested that the universe is made up of multiple dimensions. We are familiar with height, width, and length as three dimensional space, and time gives a total of four observable dimensions. However, string theories supported the possibility of ten dimensions -the remaining 6 of which we can't detect directly.

Five major string theories

These "strings" vibrate in multiple dimensions, and depending on how they vibrate, they might be seen in 3-dimensional space as matter, light, or gravity. It´s the vibration of the string which determines whether it appears to be matter or energy, and every form of matter or energy is the result of the vibration of strings.

String theory then ran into a problem. Another version of the equations was discovered. Then another, and then another. Eventually, there were five major string theories, all based on a 10-dimensional universe, and all of them appeared to be correct.


That was a problem, because science can't have five seemingly contradictory sets of equations to describe the same thing. In the mid 90s, a string theorist named Edward Witten of the Institute for Advanced Study, and other important researchers, considered that the five different versions of string theory might be describing the same thing seen from different perspectives.

They proposed a unifying theory called "M-Theory", in which the "M" is not specifically defined, but is generally understood to stand for "membrane." M-Theory brought all of the string theories together. It did this by asserting that strings are really 1-dimensional slices of a 2-dimensional membrane vibrating in 11-dimensional space.

In other words, string theories are theories that use one dimensional objects (strings) as the basic building block of the universe including matter. M-Theory is a theory that unifies five different versions of the string theories and super gravity together, all under one single framework.

Multiverse - not universe

Certain scientists within cosmology believe that there are more than one universe - that our universe is just one of many in a so-called multiverse. They believe parallel universes exist.

Furthermore, they say that these universes are like membranes floating around and when they collide they cause Big Bangs.So in M-theory our universe, and others, are created by collisions between membranes in an 11-dimensional space. This could explain our own Big Bang and the creation of matter in our universe.

Mellen-Thomas Benedict also talks about many universes and also about many Big Bangs. He had a Near Death Experience (NDE) in 1982. He´s the most studied "near-deather" in the world and has devoted much of his time to scientific research after his NDE. After he "died" he was taken to the light. He explains:

I was rocketing away from the planet on the stream of Life. I saw the earth fly away. The solar system, in all its splendor, whizzed by and disappeared.

At faster than light speed, I flew through the center of the galaxy, absorbing more knowledge as I went. I learned that this galaxy, and all of the Universe, is bursting with many different varieties of LIFE. I saw many worlds.

He goes on to say:

I was in pre-creation, before the Big Bang. I had crossed over the beginning of time/the First Word/the First vibration. I was in the Eye of Creation. I felt as if I was touching the Face of God.

It was not a religious feeling. Simply, I was at one with Absolute Life and Consciousness. Scientists perceive the Big Bang as a single event which created the Universe.

I saw during my life after death experience that the Big Bang is only one of an infinite number of Big Bangs creating Universes endlessly and simultaneously. The only images that even come close in human terms would be those created by super computers using fractal geometry equations.

Paradox of Creation

The book The Paradox of Creation covers more about the origin of the universe and how the BB is just one of many BBs. Everything is Mind - A Cosmic Mind that is both asleep and awake at the same time. The awakened part of the Mind is our Universe. The conscious part. Our space-time construct.

Parallel universes and infinity

Is there more than one universe? is the Universe infinite? Some researchers believe it is. Watch the video to learn more.

However, I beg to differ. I don´t believe the Universe is infinite, because infinity is an unknown state. You can´t know it and that´s why such a state can´t exists in a time-space construct since both time and space are quantifications. Something we use to quantify. You can´t quantify the infinite. All this is explained in detail in my book The Paradox of Creation .

If a collision of parallel universes created our universe we have all been entangled at the point of collision. Quantum physics say: particles are entangled and connected even though they are separated by time and space.

Since everything was entangled at the moment of the BIG BANG that means everything is still "touching". Space is just the construct that gives the illusion that there are separate objects.

When we look at ourselves as human beings do we look upon ourselves as connected? Or as separate bodies with no connection to our fellow man here on Earth?

Have you every met someone for the first time and instantly liked that person? Most people have. We refer to this as having "good chemistry". And when we don´t like the person we use expressions like: "I just didn't connect with him or her" or "there was no chemistry".

Why is that?

Is it because we live in an "electrical universe" with energy and the way we think and feel actually "vibrates out" to other people? Yes, your thoughts and feelings do create an electro-magnetic field around your body which other people consciously or unconsciously can detect.

So, when you meet someone you like you are on the same "wavelength". It´s a vibrational match. You can feel the "good vibes". You feel the connection. In truth we are all connected on a deeper level even though we don´t like someone.

The idea of an electrical universe - a sea of energy - where we all are connected - suggests that the world within us actually creates the world without. Since everything is energy our thoughts and feelings really do make a difference. Whatever we are thinking and feeling will be "vibrated" out into the ether and influence our reality.
