Before the Big Bang there was another universe

“The Big Bang is not really the beginning of the universe, it is just a phase transition.” Before our universe, other universes existed, and a new universe will emerge after this one.

A new scientific theory proposes that before the Big Ban, another universe existed. Furthermore, another universe will emerge, after our universe eventually collapses. The new cosmological models offers new insight into what may have existed before the great expansion.

It is believed that some 13.7 BILLION years ago, our universe came into existence after the Big Bang. However, what existed before the Big Bang? Was there anything at all present? Furthermore, is it even possible to address this question at a scientific level?

A team of scientists may have come up with a fascinating new model of cosmology in which they explain our universe is part of a cycle of many universe. Each and every one of those universes contains its very own expansion phase and contraction phase.

The study, published in the pre-print server, looks at what existed prior to the big bang and allows a creation of a pre-Big Bang cosmology.

Speaking to IBTimes UK, Mir Faizal one of the scientists who participated in the study said:

“Our space-time is only an approximation to some purely mathematical theory describing reality, and the geometry of space-time emerges from this theory. Just as the geometry of any solid material objects emerges from atomic theory. It is meaningless to talk about the geometry of a solid object at atomic scale and it is also meaningless to talk about the geometry of solid object at such energies when they will melt.

“In the same way, it becomes meaningless to talk of the geometry of space-time below a certain length scale and beyond a certain energy scale. However, the fact that the geometry of space-time is bounded by a minimum length and a maximum energy can be used to study quantum gravitational effects on cosmology, and doing this we have been able to study the pre-Big Bang cosmology”.

In the study researchers wrote:

“The equations imply that the expansion of the universe will come to a halt and then will immediately be followed by a contracting phase. When the equations are extrapolated beyond the maximum rate of contraction, a cyclic universe scenario emerges,”

“The Big Bang is not really the beginning of the universe, it is just a phase transition,” Faizal said. “There was a phase before the Big Bang, there is the present phase, there will be a phase after this and then will yet another fourth phase. Then a new Big Bang will occur. So, the universe exists in four different phases, just a water exists in three different phases.”

  1. So, How does this fit with the idea of all past present and future time is co-existing, therefore is not linear as was supposed for many years?

    1. Maybe how linear time is depends on the phase, or the point between phases, of the universe?

    2. Linear time as I understand it is relevant only to us here on earth, but to our Souls in our parallel lives/reincarnations there is only now. Difficult to believe, certainly worth reading about.

  2. All living beings undergo seven cycles of evolution in a planet. After the completion of seven cycles, that planet becomes dormant and the souls are directed to the next planet. That planet which was idle until then becomes alive now. Seven cycles of evolution
    takes place in this planet too. After that, it also becomes dormant and the
    journey of evolution continues through the next planetary plane. In this way
    when all living beings complete seven cycles of evolution seven times (7x7x7)
    through each planet, then that solar system becomes dead and through the next
    Manu one more solar system is created.

    Arthus E. Powell in his book ‘The Solar System’ mentions about Manus and
    the process of evolution of life through the seven planets. The journey of
    evolution through different planets is similar to the phased development of an
    embryo in the mother’s womb through different stages of physical, mental,
    intellectual and spiritual growth. Navajyoti Sri Karunakara Guru mentioned that
    the solar system and planetary cycles are related to the evolutionary journey
    of souls through ten spiritual layers before merging with Brahman, the Supreme

    The time period of a Manu, known as manvantara, consists of billions of years.
    The age of 14 such Manus is reckoned as a kalpa. Indian rishis calculated the age of the
    universe based on the Manu cycles. This is the seventh solar system in this kalpa
    (a period of origin and dissolution of the universe known as varaha kalpa) and
    this episode of creation is known as Vaivasvata Manvantara after the name of Vaivasvata
    Manu, the seventh Manu in this kalpa. According to Navajyoti Sri Karunakara
    Guru, the spiritual development of human race happens through the preceptors or
    gurus in every age cycles. Although God Almighty through the medium of Manu and
    Saptarshis (seven planetary spirits) creates the universe, the administration
    of souls happens through a regime of supreme gurus. A yuga has many millions of
    years. For example, this is the 28th kaliyuga of the present Manvantara, which
    has a duration of 4,32,000 years. This new age began more than 5000 years ago
    after the time of Sri Krishna.

  3. More bad science along the same lines of the multi verse theory. Athiest Scientists dont like the the big bang theory because it forces them to conclude that in the beginning, there was a begining. An initial start that started everything. The problem with this theory, multi verse theories is that it forces science to say that the universe is infinite. But infinity cannot be relied upon for any reliable scientific measurements. What’s infinity minus infinity? Non-sensical and not scientifically sound.

  4. I’m looking forward to the day they throw out ‘the big bang’ as a viable theory.
