Thank you Hick. Good Stuff.
From the article:
In this way of thinking, the universe we see is merely a bubble in a much larger cosmos. This cosmos is filled with other bubbles, all of which are other universes where the laws of physics may be dramatically different to ours.
I see the physics of this being like dropping stones in a lake causing circles that meet.
What if the "nothingness" that is the black space of our universe is eternal (in age and distance)? On one of the lectures we post from time to time - Krauss or Weinberg or whoever - someone says, " in the very, very far future, our universe will have expanded so far, a more local area (such as only our expanded milky way galaxy) is all a being looking through a telescope would see."
What if, in that very very far future, our milky way is the expanded universe that is seen, with millions of big bangs having started what the future beings will see as galaxies? If the theory that any area of "nothing" in black space is unstable is true, possibly every 100,000 years (a drop in the bucket of a eternal universe " filled with" black space) or so a galaxy can be "big-banged" into existence anywhere. You know, in our small, say, 2500 years of science, we know so little. 14 billion years is a drop in an eternal bucket.
