This is the kind of stuff that blows my mind. This theory would explain a few things.
(1) If we wanted to find the center of the universe you'd think all we'd have to do it trace back to where the big bang occurred. In defiance of logic the center of the universe doesn't exist. THIS VIDEO explains why. People assume matter was ejected from an explosion into space. However this was not so because space itself hadn't existed. Both are one and the same therefore there can be no before or after since time didn't yet exist. Further proof is everywhere we look (in any direction) the same density of galaxies exist. Since there is no greater density in one direction then the other it's not possible to trace back to find a greater or lesser number indicating a center..
(2) Which brings me back to finding we just might be living on the cusp of a black hole's event horizon. If this is so we are nothing but a recording of all that exist outside of where we exist. Think about it. (a) Every star system is of equal density outside our surroundings. (b) The universe appears nearly frozen in time from our vantage point. (c) We've observed no other beings. Wouldn't this be so if we were little more then existing frozen in time to the outside universe.
Here's Another Theory I've Always Held
We've been told the universe only existed 13.5 billion light years across since the so-called big bang. I always disputed that. THIS VIDEO seems to support my hypothesis that we have no idea how old it really is. The video explains some galaxies are moving away faster then the speed of light-- meaning their photons (limited to the speed of light) will never get here. Thus there could be an infinite number of galaxies beyond 13.5 billion light years. We just can't see them.
Wait you say, "I thought nothing could move beyond the speed of light?" I would respond by stating it would be more correct to state "we can observe nothing beyond the speed of light". That being so doesn't rule out the possibility of it being possible elsewhere. Time's existence can be said to be limited by how it's measured within one's locale. This possibility of living on an event horizon of a black hole would mean all bets would be off. To someone outside a black hole it would appear we're frozen in time. To us living here it most certainly would not.
Yes indeed time is a tricky thing. We measure time as a series of relationships. Certainly those experiences would be far different within a black hole opposed to outside of one. Therefore time becomes rather meaningless when we talk of such things. In fact quantum physics says objects can be several places at the same "time". It's only when we observe one object the others disappear. So it may very well be we are living frozen on the fringe of a black hole where all can exist at the same "time". Just as it may be also likely our universe extends far beyond anything we could imagine. Not limited to just 13.5 billion light years.
There is a quote in the bible book of Daniel which gives us a clue about this time thing. Where it says one day with God is as of a thousand years of men. If you do the math it equates to nearly the speed of light. The bible speaks to God as a being of light. I'm fairly certain they were speaking of God The Creator. Question then becomes what is the essence of God himself eternal beyond creation (of time and matter)?
