Can Our Universe Expand Forever Or Expand Then Contract Later Just So It Could Die?

From Einstein E=mc^2 to the conservation of energy theory, these concepts agree that energy cannot be created nor destroyed — after all these energies existed since singularity (even before the big bang).  Thus, if I agree with these concepts, it means everything within this universe can be deconstructed into the smallest of the smallest possible units, and each of these smallest units could be counted individually in a way that if they’re to be reunited they could be constructed into the whole universe again.  The question is if this is the case, is our universe static in quantity?

I surmise there is another possibility!  What if the first scenario is true but there is one exception!  The exception is that outside of the singularity there is a bigger container that could feed more energy into the already constructed universe which we’re living in.  This could mean the quantity of our constructed universe could be changed according to the limitation of the larger container which contains our universe.  If this is the case it could mean that our universe could be shrunk in size and quantity by somehow shredding off existing energy and feeding the lost energy back to the larger container.

Relatively then, from within our universe, it could be that our universe is infinite since it could be expanded forever or be shrunk forever depending on the situation.  We don’t know the limitation of the larger container so we could only see the direction of our universe as an infinite expansion or infinite contraction relatively!  There’s a saying that nothing could last forever, and so we know that even the sun and anything else that exists within our universe got an expiration date.  I suspect that our universe could be expanded forever until the larger container stops feeding energy to our existing universe which would then allow this universe to contract and die off eventually!

Could We Colonize Space By Rearranging The Solar Systems?

Could it be that God truly exist?  If God isn’t really existed then luck must be it that earth could actually harbor life!  Our planet earth got really lucky in a way that it is not too close to the star (i.e., the sun) and it is not too far from the star either.  Other dead solid planets are not so lucky as they located too far from their star or too close to their star, thus their surface would either boil or freeze to the extreme temperatures.  Such extreme conditions would prevent life as we know it to exist.  Of course, there would always be the exception, but such an exception would be nothing like us humans!  Such aliens would not have any semblance to the traits that us humans are familiar with such as how life has existed here on earth.

I guess it’s safe to say that earth is either a miracle from God or it is truly lucky.  As our advanced telescopes peer into the endless darkness in space, we have discovered so many solar systems and galaxies.  Although we’ve found so many planets and stars and solar systems and galaxies, it seems the more we found the more we instill a belief in ourselves that we’re alone.

Through current scientific methods, we could only guess that there are some planets out there that could harbor life.  Perhaps we think such planets are locating in the comfort zone of their solar systems, thus providing the chance that these planets could harbor water.  Here on earth, life exists because of water.  We’re thinking that water on other planets too may allow life to go through an evolutionary process — developing alien life in the process.  Nonetheless, we could only guess and not so sure about our guess until we could deploy some sort of drones, robotics, and satellites to such planets.  Even better, we could deploy humans to such planets!

Unfortunately, the solar systems and planets we think that could harbor life are way too far for earth’s current technology to reach.  For an example, we could try to launch a rocket fuel vehicle toward Alpha Centauri system.  According to Earthsky’s “How Long to Travel to Alpha Centauri?” article, it would take 78,000 years for our current rocket fuel vehicle to reach this space system.  According to Wikipedia, Alpha Centauri System is the nearest star system to our solar system which is about 4.37 light years away from our solar system.  So, it seems our current space technology is way too slow for space traveling because even the closest solar system would take 78,000 years for a human space vehicle to reach it.

At the moment we could not be sure if life is actually existing anywhere in space.  We know for sure though life is existing here in our solar system because the earth is teeming with life.  If we want to confirm that life is actually existing elsewhere we have to develop space vehicles that could travel much faster.  Preferably, we want to develop space vehicles that could travel near the speed of light.  Only then that we could travel to Alpha Centauri space system in 4.37 years or so.

What’s the point of my rant so far?  Well, imagine an alien race that could be so advanced that their technology allows them to modify any space’s solar system to the way they like it.  Imagine the ramification of such technology!  Just imagine each planet and star like a pool ball on a pool table!  Imagine a pool table’s holes are the black holes, and if each ball got too close it would fall into a pool’s hole.  In reality, if a planet gets sucked into a black hole, it would be destroyed into pieces, I think.  Will the black hole spit out these shredded planets and stars later?  I don’t know!  Nonetheless, the idea is to imagine that space is dangerous and comfortability is very, very rare!  So if each pool ball travels too close, each pool ball would collide with one another.  In reality, a planet collides with another planet would be on the scale of the doomsday disaster.  If a planet collides with a star, it would be the destruction of the planet itself.  So, this alien technology that could modify the layout of the solar system would create the condition to harbor water and provide life as we know it.

Now, if we could develop such technology here on earth, we could go out into space and rearrange any solar system to our liking, making other planets to support life so we could have more earthlike planets out there in space.  This is one way I think we could colonize space and allow human species to exist much longer than the earth itself.  For an example, our earth could be dying someday, and so without such technology, we won’t be able to escape the dying earth — in such a process human species would die along with earth.  Instead of dying along with earth, humans should try to come up with technology that pushes planets and stars around to rearrange the solar system to how we like it.  It would be so easy to shoot the pool balls around on the pool table, but I guess it would take Godlike effort to do so with pool balls that are as large and as heavy as the planets and stars in space.  Furthermore, if the effort takes too long, the solar system itself could be destroyed!

Cities of the Future Could Be in Space, And These Won’t Look Like Any Real Estate We Know Today

The concept of real estate is largely depending on how we are glued to earth!  What will it be if in the future we could forgo the glue of earth altogether and build a city in space?  The space elevator is a concept that is in science fiction realm, and today we don’t have anything like this yet.  Nonetheless, this space elevator concept could become true if we got the right materials and plan to make it a reality.  Once humans travel through space easily as if how one would take a bus or a train on earth, then the idea of living in space becomes rather mundane.

We humans always think that we need another planet out there to be a second earth, but what if the cost of building a city in space in a modular fashion in a sense that space elevator concept could expand into a space highway and such — wouldn’t this be more doable and cheaper and time-saving than trying to find a second earth?  So I would imagine that a highway system in space would function similar to space elevator but the system itself would be more expansive.  After all, a space elevator could be a quick fix for a short distance from one point in space to another point in space.  Perhaps, space highway is like a bigger, more durable space elevator, and the spaceships that travel through this space highway system won’t need to use a self-powered propulsion system to traverse quickly from one point in space to another point in space.  Wouldn’t this be fuel efficient?

Of course, we could argue that space highway is kind of stupid if spaceships could just fly freely in space without needing to stick to an asphalt.  Nonetheless, space highway could function as fuel saving mechanism/system and much more.  Spiritually, space highway could function as a system that turns the idea of space city into a real community/city.  Imagine how much more expensive to build a small earth in space, and so it’s not wise to do so.  Instead, each spaceship could act like a car, home, restaurant, and so on.  The space highway then acts as a highway system that connects the necessary points in space to form a loose space city system.  From this highway, a home in space could fly from one point to another without needing to use any fuel unless the home is going to fly off the space highway system.

I think a concept of loose space city system — if it’s a reality — could turn the idea of owning a piece of real estate upside down.  After all, everything would be floating in space and won’t stay put.  Furthermore, even the highway itself could be floating continuously, albeit that it would stay in the same large vicinity in space.  Once people actually live in such a space city, people won’t be able to differentiate a house from a car, a car from a restaurant, and so forth.  After all, humans in space would be in a spaceship most of the time.  So, humans in space would think their spaceship as either a home, a car in a space highway system, a business location, a restaurant to invite other humans to come to dine and so forth.

In summary, I think when people begin to think a city in space in a loose space city system, the real estate concept would be completely different than the one that we use for cities on a planet.  Of course, humans don’t have to stick to only one type of space city.  After all, we could find a second earth and create even more cities from far away in space.  In my opinion, a loose space city system could be the extra real estate for a closeby planet.  For an example, let’s say earth would run out of space and people could create extra space real estate by creating a loose space city system just right outside of earth.

Nature Isn’t Good and Isn’t Bad Either!

Is progressing a bad thing or a good thing?  Some people out there prefer that we could live like we were in the past because we couldn’t develop as much and so we didn’t pollute the environment.  They would argue that living closer to mother nature would naturally be good and be healthy, and anything otherwise is just bad!  They would argue that scientific advancements like nuclear power would be bad and so forth.  Basically, they would like to roam naked in the wood and prefer doing things more naturally!  Once again, are they right or wrong?

This specific case, I think they’re not only wrong but super stupid!  In the movies, we got superhuman, but in this case, we got super dumb ideology!  Why?  Just like any tool, it got two sides!  One good and one bad!  Like a knife, you could use a knife to cut food or kill people!  One is good, and one is bad!  So, when scientific developments are meant to be used for good, these things are naturally good.  These things are more natural than a rock which sits pretty on the ground all day long!

People who argue that developments are bad should ask the dinosaurs why they had extinct!  Isn’t it obvious that the dinosaurs couldn’t think as deep as humans thus they could not fly away for a brief vacation till things on earth cool down?  This is why scientific advancements are super crucial for the human race as a whole!  We need to be able to escape one rock and cultivate another just so we could avoid our own extinction!

Us humans tend to be not only stupid but we are also very arrogant!  We tend to think that what we got would last forever!  Unfortunately, we could not live forever, and our human race won’t exist forever also!  Why?  Even the sun will cease to exist eventually!  So, even the scale of the universe would not last forever, why would we think our earth would last forever?  If earth would not last forever, how will human race last forever?  Isn’t it natural for earthy humans to devise plans for our continuation even though we know nothing would last forever?

So, let’s get back down to earth and think simpler!  I think nature itself is just a tool!  If you’re sick and needing a cure, the right herbs naturally would cure you.  If you’re not too careful and eating the wrong mushrooms that exist naturally in nature, you would naturally die!  Nature exists as both good and bad!  So let us not be that stupid to think that developments are bad, and whatever exists naturally is naturally good!

Sometimes, hugging a tree is bad for the whole human race!  Instead of hugging a tree, we need to plant trees as a development and common sense!  Don’t argue that any development is bad!  Don’t just say nuclear power is unsafe!  In fact, I believe that we may need more advancement in nuclear power so we could suppress the tyranny of distance within our universe so we could travel far and cultivate more out-of-this-world colonies (i.e., in space) so we could lengthen the human race lifespan!

Meeting A Cousin From Another Galaxy!

Imagine that our universe is already predestined and whatever which needs to be accounted for is probably already being counted ahead of time.  Imagine a hand of God would assign one or multiple meaningful ways to combine the fates of his/her creations.  Perhaps, a hand of God decided that each of his creation is made of binary numbers, or perhaps it’s another method that would be in play instead.  Anyway. let’s assume that a hand of God decided his creations should be made of binary numbers.  In this universe, the binary numbers would be the ones and the zeros.  Combining these ones and zeros together would form a unique intelligent being.  Through the chance/random process, the possibility of creating the same unique intelligent being could be recreated, because let’s assume that the hand of God didn’t specify a rule that prevented such thing from happening.

So, imagine such a universe is real, wouldn’t you want to know perhaps us humans are not special?  Could it be that through such a randomized process (with repeated chances) the human DNA isn’t that unique in the universe?  As I alluded earlier, if the universe is already equipped with proper configurations, then it should not be too hard for the universe to give rises to chances so the process of creating human all over again would occur again.  Sometimes, the process of recreating the same intelligent being could be reproduced more than once through chances.  If this is mathematically possible in our real (not imagined) universe, then I wouldn’t be surprised if there is another human race or races out there that occupy another planet within this universe!  So, is it too outrageous to think that we could meet an alien that isn’t from this galaxy that got two hands, ten fingers, a nose, a beautiful handsome face, and similar charismatic, intelligent mannerism?

In my opinion, I don’t think it is so outrageous to think such possibility could exist out there.  Of course, we could meet aliens that are out of this world and got no feature that is similar to us at all.  But I don’t think we should discount the possibility that we could just meet up with ourselves from another galaxy!  It’s like a cousin that we never knew we had!

Can Quantum Mechanics Be The Key To Allow Us To Escape 3D Spatial Fabric So We Could Travel Through Time?

In the previous blog post “To Travel Through Time I Think We Need To Exit Our Own 3D Universe And Enter 4D Universe” I suggested that we could escape our three-dimensional world to a higher dimensional world in order for us to do time travel.  The question is how are we going to do it?  Easy to say than actually do it.  For obvious reasons, we can easily imagine up the problem, find an imaginary solution according to the power of deduction, but sometimes it would be impossible for us to put the power of deduction into practice.  In this case, it’s currently impossible for us humans to escape our three-dimensional universe.  Simply put, we don’t have the tech to do so.

In order for us to have the tech to escape our 3D-universe, we need an exact, practical know-how method with precise steps to produce a tech in which we could use to escape our 3D-universe.  Obviously, we don’t have such knowledge.  Nonetheless, I don’t even have to convince you that we can travel to the moon nowadays because we obviously could escape our homeworld which is earth.  We’ve been sending satellites to circling earth for scientific data and whatnot, and so I don’t see why we couldn’t be even more ambitious in the regards to exploring the outer space.  One step beyond the final frontier would be time travel.

Time travel is a science fiction that we probably won’t be able to put into practice, if ever, in a foreseeable future as it’s the stuff that is too way out there — too crazy to put into practice for us humans in our current evolution.  We couldn’t even yet achieve a technology which could allow us to travel between galaxies.  In my opinion, unless we achieve the ability to jump between galaxies to shorten our trip in space, we probably won’t ever have the time, the tech know-how, nor the will to even think about achieving time travel.

Nonetheless, none of the barriers I’d mentioned would stop our imagination from running wild in regards to time travel.  Movies, books, and whatnot have been exploring the fictional science of time travel for many years already.  I still think we need someone, a little crazier than normal, to actually explore the math and whatever about time travel.

Personally, I like to chime in a bit on how should we approach in finding a method to allow us to escape 3D-world so we could enter a higher dimension such as the 4D-universe so we could at least have some hope in achieving time travel.  So let me ask you to imagine something that is so weird OK?

Imagine a transparent, plastic bag which holds some water inside, but the bag is riddled with small holes.  Instead of escaping from the bag, the water is comfortably swirling inside the bag normally when one shakes the bag up.  Puzzled?  A bag with thousands of holes, yet water won’t be spilled.  Not even a single drop water would be spilled through this bag.  Still puzzling?

What kind of a monster bag is this?  You probably want to have one right now, right?  Well, this bag won’t exist yet unless my imagination becomes a reality.  As of now, the sun is still rising in the east and settling in the west, and so no, the reality isn’t yet capable of turning my imagination into something real just yet.

Nonetheless, let’s push forward with our imaginative hole riddled bag that is being filled with unspillable water.  The idea is that the holes are inexplicable small to the point that no water molecule could spill through.  Thus water could not be spilled from this leaky bag.

Since the water could not escape the bag, and so the water is just comfortably swirling inside the bag as normal.  Imagine our 3D-universe is like this bag.  It got holes that could allow us to escape to 2D, 4D, 5D-universe and so forth, but we simply can’t get through these holes to escape our 3D-universe.  We simply just don’t have the tech or it’s just impossible for us humans to do so without some sorts of futuristic science or pure magic or godly power.

The idea isn’t too weird though if we correlate this to quantum mechanics.  If my shady knowledge of quantum mechanics isn’t too off course, then I think using quantum mechanics we can somewhat point ourselves to clues that could allow us to glimpse at a higher dimensional world.

In the quantum world, things don’t behave normally as how we would expect in our own large, physical world.  Basically, in the quantum world, things seem to be inexplicably appeared and disappeared into places that we could not track or measure.  Is this still true with our current tech?  I’m not sure if we can actually yet track things in the quantum world yet, but if we can this would be awesome.  If we haven’t yet discovered how to do this, then I guess let me just use quantum mechanics to correlate to what is relevant in this blog post — to satisfy my ego.

This is just a pure speculation and got nothing to even come close to fact.  I speculate that in quantum world there are holes that are so small, inexplicable small, that could allow things in the quantum world to slip in and out of the current dimensional world that we’re living in which is the 3D-universe.  Of course, this is outrageous.  I have not read anything which suggests this could be the case.  This is just a pure speculation on my part.

Let’s just assume that in our 3D universe, in the quantum mechanics scale of things, there are inexplicable small holes that could allow things to slip out of 3D spatial space.  If this is true, then at least this could allow us to imagine that one day there will be a technology which could teleport us through such a hole and allow us to escape our 3D-universe.  On the other side, it could be 2D, 4D, 5D, and you know whatnot dimensional space that we could enter as we exit our very own 3D spatial fabric.
