Nonsense, science has yet to understand synergy. “Behavior of whole systems unpredicted by the behavior of their parts taken separately.”: RBFuller. The Universe cannot be defined by human intelligence, having a limited experience set as well as limited conceptualization capacity. “..we may conclude the society does not understand nature.” RBFuller. This article is another unverifiable quark, not even second to BB. Just wait another 10′s of Billion years and research the archives…I told you so….

Recent progress on the study of dark matter meanwhile, bolsters the prospect on a universe expanding at faster than the speed on light, leaving the prospect on a bubble of something new something less than a mortal threat.

Not very shocking. Since we became convinced, quite properly, of the reality of the Big Bang we knew, or should have understood, that the universe did not BEGIN with an enormous explosion, it IS an enormous explosion still ongoing after billions of years of time and across billions of light years of space. The stars are but the fading sparks and embers of that primordial blast, the planets but the cinders and ashes. It wasn’t going to go on forever in any case.

I have always been more comfortable with the notion of a cyclical universe than with one that goes on expanding forever. However, I thought that the expansion would eventually cease and the universe would then begin a long collapse, ultimately regenerating that tiny particle of compressed mass only to again erupt in a big bang.

We have known for a long time that entropy must increase.

If, as the study of dark matter suggests, the expansion of the universe, or should I say, our “shell” of the universe, is accelerating beyond the speed of light, the universe might consist of a series of such “shells”, each created by a vacuum fluctuation, and pushing each other further into the void. A vast Faberge Egg ever expanding and creating new shells.

So funny using the word ‘bubble’. It’s been pretty much fairly established now in science that we are effectually ‘pixalated’ in our reality. In all probability we could be simply a simulation program, and science is finding it harder and harder to deny that.

When I was young I was ‘religious’ and ‘spiritual’ if you will. Then I went through nearly two decades as an ‘atheist’. However, after crossing 40 a few years ago and seeing some of the things I’ve seen it’s become near impossible to deny a set of rules and a medium upon which these rules are transmitted…which means intentional design. Sorry science led folk, but imho you are flat wrong.

Google or youtube sacred geometry and you might understand why everything is cyclical in nature.
