    The universe’s clock has neither a start nor finish, yet time is finite -- according to a New Zealand theorist. The theory, which tackles the age-old mystery of the origin of the universe, along with several other problems and paradoxes in cosmology, calls for a new take on our concept of time -- one that has more in common with the “cyclic” views of time held by ancient thinkers such as Plato, Aristotle and Leonardo da Vinci, than the Christian calendar and Bible-influenced belief in “linear” time now so deeply imbedded in modern western thinking.

    As per my last reply to a closely associated thread, I agree.

    When we entertain time to be circular, the big-bang heads into the recycling bin, where it belongs.

    Time, in being circular, has no begionning or end: it's only arbitrary to choose a beginning and end, the gap in between which is arbitrary......like, "put you hand up if you feel you were just born yesterday on a great many things?"


    Does a theory of everything therefore need to be purely theoretical and only account for the known laws and forces in handling the improbability of fortune telling?

    the www feature below can explain it better.

    So the question is whether or not time is infinite. Or something like that.

    I just had a light bulb go off in regards to this question.---

    If time is circular then one might assume that it has been going on forever along this time ring. True, however that doesn't mean it didn't have a beginning. It could have been repeating the "cycle" of "something to the big bang, something to the big bang", and then from the big bang to the something which in turn, after some amount of time went back to the big bang.

    A=big bang
    B=???
    A-B-A-B-A... the question is:what the heck is B?

    The big bang is a theory constructed by theorists last centurly to be the "easy-fit" explanation to the red-shift effect, that the universe is expanding, because if the universe is expanding then there must have been an explosion for it to be expanding (really dumb logic, really). It could be possible that the red-shift effect is in fact an inherent feature of the workings of space-time, and that it has NOTHING to do with expanding space. When thinking about time, don;t get stcuk on the big bang. The reasoning of it, how it was contrived, is really dumb. I am not saying the people who contrived it are dumb, I am saying the theory itself is DUMB.

    Does this theory then support the ekpyrotic universe perhaps? Or a new version of it or something?

    Ekpyrotic Universe

    EDIT: I must say this is very interesting

    You feel that the theory of the Big Bang is dumb? Propose another one.
