Hello im new here. I have been wondering about the true nature of reality for some time, just because im curious. Heres what i have concluded so far and i would like to know if there are any mistakes in it:


The Big Bang started off as a singularity.

Quantum mechanics has shown that it is possible for energy to exist 'outside' of space and 'outside' of time.

So basicly, all information/energy can exist in a singularity(because it needs no space) without beginning or ending(because it needs no time).

So that could mean that right now, everything is still a singularity, because the energy doesnt need to (or cannot) exist in space and time.

And this means that the singularity is still there and that everything is 1 energy.


Ok that was it, please let me know if this is possible or if i made some mistakes.

This is pretty much correct. Some theories of the BB do away with the singularity, such as Hawking's.

Quantum mechanics has shown that it is possible for energy to exist 'outside' of space and 'outside' of time.
No. Energy doesn't. What does is "amplitude", a sort of complex precursor to probability.

You see that your misunderstanding of what quantum mechanics says undercuts this conclusion.

And this means that the singularity is still there and that everything is 1 energy.
And this big one too. Sorry.

That's an excellent attitude, and I hope you won't give up thinking about the world. Maybe check out the quantum mechanics forum up above and collect a little more information.

Well then atleast this 'amplitude' could exist in a singularity, right?

And this amplitude would be the thing that controls where and when the energy exists? It determines the most probable outcome and puts it there?


I checked the QP forum and initially put this topic there, but then i discovered that their conversations are a bit over my head. But ill keep trying!
