The Origins of The Universe?

BLOG NOTE: This is a transcript directly from my original blog post written on 3/26/2011 taken from this page: Socoeito: The Theory of Everything Explained

Tonight, after doing some "deep" thinking, I came up with the "Theory of Everything". OK, by that, I mean the theory of how seemingly "nothing" could turn into everything you see today. My theory proposes that everything that exists today is made up of, and originated from exactly one particle. Admittedly, I cannot explain the origin of the first particle, only how it became everything we know today. Open your mind and read more below.

Ok, the concept here is simple: all things started with one elementary particle, and only one elementary particle has ever existed and that all things are made of this one particle. This particle, which you may call the "God" particle, (though not necessarily the same as the currently sought after "Higgs boson" particle) I'll name the "genesis" particle, to help differentiate from the others. This one particle has the ability to travel back and forth through time. A better way to think of it is that it can vibrate forwards and backwards through time. Now, suppose that initially this genesis particle existed for "x" amount of time. (Any amount of time could be used, I suppose... at least in the "early stage" of this theory. You can use one second, if that makes it easy to imagine.) In fact, better than that, we'll say that this unit of time of its existence is the most elementary unit of time possible. In other words, no other division of time is smaller (unless otherwise imaginary), just as no other particle could be more elementary. I'll call this unit of time a "bop." Now, suppose the genesis particle vibrated around and lasted for one bop. Then let's just say that it travels back in time by exactly one bop, and when it does, it "meets" the earlier version of itself. Next, the process repeats, and the two twin particles vibrate for one bop and then appear back in time by one bop, making four particles (which are all really just the same particle, just from different time frames, folded upon itself (in a nearby space.)

Here's a crude drawing to represent what happens:

For a quick thought on this....
Imagine if you will, if you owned a telephone booth sized time machine. And you stood in front of it for a minute, and sort of wondered in a circle, before you decided to go in. When you enter, you emerge exactly one minute earlier in time, which means you find yourself standing in front of your one minute younger self. Now, imagine if the two of you repeated the same thing, so that there would be four of you.

Get the idea?

Now that initial step would repeat itself until the amount of matter grows to a critical point to where things start to interact with each other and perhaps some of those particles begin to clump together. The strangeness of this idea is that although all of the matter is really just the same particle, they begin to interact as if they are unique particles. Some continue to "duplicate" while other "rogue" particles clump together and form groups. These early groups would have formed the early ancestors to what we all know to be sub-atomic particles. Eventually this mass would have become very dense, and would have at that time initiated what we now refer to as the "Big Bang." The same physics from the that step on, as we've come to know them would then apply to the rest of the creation of the universe as we know it.

So there you have it. My theory of everything is that everything that you see is actually just one particle that continuously traveled back in time, which effectively duplicated itself in that instance of time, grew to a critical mass, enough to create the sub-atomic particles which began the universe that we all know today.

Now, you may wonder, why and how did I come up with this? Well, the answer is simple. I started off thinking about what it would be like to see yourself at an earlier state, by going back in time. Then I thought, if you could go back to see yourself in time, what would it be like if you had several of your future selves visit you? It would give the appearance of a growing mass. In fact, the amount of mass occupying that space would indeed have increased at that one instance in time. My next thoughts moved to, "what if that applied to just a single particle?" All of that led me to consider this a possibility however strange it may seem. Now granted, its a wild one, and its the type of thing that is born from late night, past-my-bedtime, type of thoughts. But then, think about it: What if this idea was possible and true? What would the implications be? What are your thoughts?

    I like your idea, but you may be ignoring a variable and that is the conservation of mass idea. If you go back to the moment you moved forward one bop, you will essentially be stepping into another light cone for the event moving forward one bop, and it's consequence of moving back one bop. It is unlikely you would replicate yourself. You would simply experience yourself as constantly being in "now", albeit an unusually long "now" (one repeated bop, infinite times). that particle or you, would be the most stable unit of matter with seemingly no fluctuations, no loss of energy, no change. I don't know, I'm just say'n...

    Thanks for the input. That's certainly an interesting thought you have about this. I would agree with you on most counts, especially in terms of "normal" matter. A person going through this loop would certainly loose energy, and involve a change. I would fully expect them to age, if they so chose to keep on at it. So, in a sense, that person couldn't hit "infinite" (not without the aid of others, and even then the body would degrade over time.) This weekend, I plan on having new blog entry that will address this, and some of the other thoughts that folks have had in the forum. Since writing this, I've determined that I'll need to clarify the properties of this particle, and why I think it'll have the ability to behave the way that it does.
