The cosmos has thousands of mysteries, mysteries we are only beginning to unravel. From the technologies of the CERN research lab in Geneva and the theories of quantum physics of Stephen Hawking, to the mysteries behind Pandora’s Box, and the metaphor-veiled Egyptian myths, and the motto of the world’s largest economy, “E Pluribus Unum” shall astound your beating hearts forever.
Welcome to GoTejas.com, and this is the next post in a set of GoTejas posts exploring the existence of God. Please also see the other two posts: “God Does Not Play Dice With The Universe“, and “What Is Nothing?”
Let’s go on a journey back in time, to the point when entropy began. In thermodynamics, entropy is the measure of disorder in the universe. While physicists have arrived at various theories for the destruction of the universe, there is but one sole reason for this obliteration: chaos. The most powerful force in the universe is time. And time is chaos. When chaos envelops order, the universe begins crumbling. Everything has an end; hence, the destruction must begin from the creation of the universe.
What was there in the beginning? The answer is nothing. But, “nothing” cannot exist. As explored in What Is Nothing?, gravity was present for the two universes to exist. Yet, before the two universes, what was there? The answer is a singularity.
What is a singularity? A singularity is a location in spacetime in which gravitational forces cause matter to have infinite density and zero volume; it was a focus of infinite-density, zero-volume matter. According to general relativity, a singularity acted as the focus for the Big Bang.
This “matter” was, in truth, in its expanded form: energy. The zero-density energy expanded to release innumerable photons. Photons, or light particles (formerly quanta) are the purest form of energy, that create waves of light. Gravity is darkness, photons are light.
Gravity attracts and absorbs any matter or energy, including photons. Large whorls of gravity that absorb all photons that come into contact with them are black holes. And the universe itself was merely a black hole in a process of constant recreation. According to the Schwarzchild solution this black hole was a non-rotating, uncharged black hole. It is easily explained by Stephen Hawking’s theory of a radiatory energy released from black holes; black holes releasing energy would mean they would store entropy. This proves that entropy could have even been eternal.
In Hindu mythology, Bramha, or Purusha, the creator, emerged from the cosmic egg and sacrificed himself to create the cosmos. The universe constantly expands, flowing with Bramha’s infinite energy, known as Brahman. Bramha, though, was merely one of four aspects of Brahman’s infinite energy. The second is Vishnu, the energy that holds the universe firmly, and bound the egg of creation before it cracked. Vishnu, thus, is gravity. And the destroyers, Rudra and Shakti, matter and antimatter, battle to release the supreme power of the mythical Brahman-astra. The universe ends in an antimatter-matter annihilation.
At this primeval focus of expanding energy, the photons begin to contract. With a massive flash of energy, the Big Bang released not one but two contracted forms of energy: normal matter, and antimatter. The massive annihilation that followed created entropy. Entropy is expansion and contraction at the same time. Our universe expands faster than it contracts, but the contraction races with a speed, the speed of entropy. The backward-time universe is the other way around: the contraction is faster than the expansion, and that universe is doomed to annihilation. Obliteration.
On November 7th, 2010, scientists at the headquarters of the European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN) used the particle collider, the Large Hadron Collider, to recreate the ion collisions that occurred immediately after the Big Bang. These ion collisions created temperatures million times hotter than the sun, which were temperatures immediately after the extremely-hot to extremely-cold temperatures of the Big Bang.
In this black-hole singularity releasing energy, it could be that the focus stored entropy, and, with the creation of the universe, unleashed this disorder force to the universe. In Greek mythology, Pandora is given a jar by Zeus, famously known as Pandora’s Box, that released disorder into the universe. What if Pandora’s Box was merely an explanation for singularity?
In Egyptian mythology, the universe begins with Nu, the Sea of Chaos; entropy swept over the cosmos. According to Hesiod’s Theogony, Chaos is the chasm from which all deities rise, and the universe was born. What if this singularity, that expanded to envelop the universe, was the root source of belief in God? What if this focus of energy was, as Georges Lemaitre said in 1927, God? This, perhaps, was the One True God of various faiths. Even renowned scientific philosopher Isaac Newton called himself Jeova Sanctus Unus: One True God. What if there was one God, who lives in all of us? This God has now become all of us. What if our hearts and minds together form a superstring that holds the force of God? What if we constantly, without our knowledge, witness Harmonic Convergences?
Only God shall know.
E Pluribus Unum.
Out of Many, One.
