Big load of nothing: Stephen Hawking describes what came before the universe

Big load of nothing: Stephen Hawking describes what came before the universe

Among the many scientific theories about the origin of the universe, the most popular one is that of the Big Bang, which posits that an explosion about 13.8 billion years set the expanding universe in motion.

This means that anything that preceded it can not be applied to our understanding of time and existence. This is when ordinary time is replaced by imaginary with a fourth direction of space, in which the only boundary is a "no-boundary condition".

Professor Stephen Hawking is a world-renowned British theoretical physicist, known for his contributions to the fields of cosmology, general relativity and quantum gravity. According to the theory, the universe began with a small singularity which occurred over 13.8 billion years ago into the universe that is known at present. Inside this extremely small, solid, dense speck of warmth and energy the laws of physics and time as we know them, cease to function.

A physicist spoke about the events before the Big Bang.

Broadcom Cries Foul As Qualcomm Delays Shareholder Vote On Takeover
Getting NXP into the fold would increase Qualcomm's presence in such areas as 5G, the internet of things and autonomous vehicles. Broadcom said it is run by a board of directors and senior management team consisting nearly entirely of Americans.

"It just seemed that way from mankind's perspective", Hawking noted, hinting that a lot of what we believe is derived from a human-centric perspective, which might limit the scope of human knowledge of the world.

In Hawking's view, before the Big Bang, there existed simply nothing, but not in the conventional sense.

Essentially, there was no conceivable "boundary" of time until the Big Bang.

He also talked about the concept of no boundary condition to elaborate more clearly about his opinion on the origin of the universe.

The Euclidean approach dates back to Ancient Greece as a mathematical system that consists of a set of starting logical proposals or starting points to determine and deduct new proposals with logic as their base.

'There is nothing south of the South Pole, so there was nothing around before the Big Bang, ' he said.

"We can consider ordinary and real time as starting at the South Pole, which is a smooth point of space-time where the natural laws of physics hold", he explains.

"The universe will evolve from the Big Bang, completely independently of what it was like before", Hawking had stated. "Even the amount of matter in the universe, can be different to what it was before the Big Bang, as the Law of Conservation of Matter, will break down at the Big Bang".

During the show, Hawking said that before the Big Bang, time was bent: 'It was always reaching closer to nothing but didn't become nothing'.
