Where did everything come from? How did the universe come into existence? These are questions that mankind has tried to answer since we were grunting words while huddled around fires in caves. Over time, the answers we came to became more and more evolved. We went from such stories and the world being hatched out of a giant egg to the universe being shaped by a single supreme being. Then we finally uncovered the Big Bang. But the Big Bang is not without its unanswered questions. However, I believe these questions can be answered using simple logic and the evidence we already have.

We know that the universe started as an infinitely small and dense point of energy called a singularity. What we “do not know” is where this singularity came from. Some creationist claim this to be evidence for their theory that a divine being created the universe. However, we know that singularities exist within our universe at the heart of black holes. The other issue presented by the theory is that the objects farthest away from each other are farther apart than they should be. Physicist came up with the theory of inflation to explain this, but have not given a reason for inflation to have occurred. But is it humanity’s egoism that has prevented us from answering the Big Bang’s unanswered questions.

First, the problem of the singularity. As stated, we know that singularities exist at the heart of black holes in our universe. But, if there was no universe, how could there be a black hole for the singularity to exist in? The answer becomes simple when we strip away our ego. For the longest time, humans thought ours was the only planet. As it turns out, there are countless planets. Okay, well certainly ours had the only sun. Nope, our sun is just one of countless stars. Then ours must be the only galaxy right? Absolutely not. There are countless galaxies as well. So it is therefore beyond safe to assume that there are countless universes as well. And, if black holes and singularities exist in our universe, they must exist in others as well. And when a singularity reaches critical mass, as it must gathering energy, it explodes. However, under the infinite gravitational force of the black hole, there is nowhere for the explosion to go. Gravity being the curvature of space and time, and infinite gravity being an infinite curvature, it is safe to say that the explosion creates a new space-time continuum and therefore a new universe.

So what about the problem with inflation? Depending on when the singularity exploded, it is very possible that the black hole it was formed in remained open for thousands to millions to billions of years. The black hole in our parent universe would then act as an accelerator, causing our universe to expand faster than the speed of light. Once the black hole closes the expansion of the universe would then slow back down to the speed of light.

So where did our parent universe come from? Unfortunately, we cannot say since we are unable to observe our parent universe. How does this view hold up in our readers’ eyes? Let us know in your comments.
