    I believe the universe came from nothing.

    Two waves cancle each other out to make the appearance of nothing. If the waves however are out of sync they no longer cancle each other and you'll have somthing from nothing. (Sort of) If energy is a wave form this could also be true for the entire universe. Since everything is basicly a wave anyway.

    This does not violate the laws of conservation since the debt is repaid in Time. Universes poping in and out of existance would be my guess. A "pop" could seem like forever to us (Or a lifetime) but be an instant in the real scheme of things. A universe plus an anti universe would serve the laws of conservation as well.

    +1 and -1 equal zero when added together. We see the possibility of how a universe can appear from the void when we look at either wave seperatly.

    Slightly out of phase and Oula!

    I dont see how you can compare waves (which are matter or energy) not canceling out and producing energy, to the big bang. I am not very knowgable on this subject, but why would you get something if two waves don't cancel out? And how is that getting something from nothing?

    Waves don't really cancel out, let me explain.

    Interference is the superposition of two or more waves resulting in a new wave pattern. As most commonly used, the term usually refers to the interference of waves which are correlated or coherent with each other, either because they come from the same source or because they have the same or nearly the same frequency. Two non-monochromatic waves are only fully coherent with each other if they both have exactly the same range of wavelengths and the same phase differences at each of the constituent wavelengths.

    The principle of superposition of waves states that the resultant displacement at a point is equal to the sum of the displacements of different waves at that point. If a crest of a wave meets a crest of another wave at the same point then the crests interfere constructively and the resultant wave amplitude is greater. If a crest of a wave meets a trough then they interfere destructively, and the overall amplitude is decreased.

    if you might know stephen hawking has done mathematical proof for the big bang!

    This answer should be moved to the "humour" section!

    i agree - try the philosophy forum or religion you can express belief systems there!

    concerning the big bang the theory is slightly discredited in my humble opinion as IIRC there had to be a vary particular temperature state for the model to work.............this means there is a slim margin for error........

    I am not an expert & would not mind being corrected on this if I am wrong.........

    ............lastly the everlasting question..............what was there before? (i know string theory has something to say for this).

    This thread was resurrected from 2006, and as far as I can see it was for no good reason. Kakarot, please don't do this again. Locked.
