    Is local inflation probable?

    If a gravity wave moved at the speed of light from a pinpoint. If you were in the middle of this point point looking out, would you see anything?

    If the big bang made gravity waves, maybe the edge of our universe is not the edge of THE universe, but just the point in which all light past it is being repelled.

    I've heard a little bit about the little bang but assume it has no clout. Who is to say a little bang would not look like a big bang from within it? Would there be any way of testing this?

    Hmm... the edge of the universe... Well if we don't live in a multiverse, and ONLY a universe, meaning, one universe, one existence, on state of being, then maybe there's nothing on the other side of the expanding dark energy, dark matter and anti-matter. It's possible that, since space doesn't require objects to exist within it for it to exist, but objects require space to exist so they can exist within it, the outside of the universe if there is one, is just empty space. Let's say, outside of the universe is just empty stagnant unused space, and we know matter can exist even when light is not present, perhaps the "outside of the universe" is merely an anti-matter infinity surrounding our material universe. You can't see anything possibly because there's not only nothing for one to see, but just something so normlessness we can't detect it with the systems we have. There are unique things in the universe, maybe the outside of it is just, anti-matter.

    Wow, I have rarely read a post (RosenNoir) with such a condensed number of wild speculations and unproven as well as unprovable assumptions. I am not sure whether the OP appreciates that. With the same kind of argumentation, I could speculate, whether the outside of the universe is full of ice cream or purple cows. Do you have any reason to believe your thoughts, or do you just create sentences by permuting scientifically sounding words?

    Less sarcasm: This is very unscientific and some of the arguments can be rejected immediately without lot of hard thinking.

    @marcuslayman: Wouldn't your thought experiment violate the idea of an isotropic and homogeneous universe?

    Altho' it is not the adjective I would use, I suppose you could get away with describing totally empty space as "stagnant" in the sense there was no obvious sign of any activity.
    But what does "normlessness" mean?

    I don't have an argument, I asked 3 questions, and should have phrased the 3rd statement as a question too. Sorry to bother you.
