What is Beginning: Definition and 179 Discussions

The New Beginning is an annual professional wrestling event promoted by New Japan Pro-Wrestling (NJPW). The event has been held since 2011 as a pay-per-view (PPV). From 2013 to 2014, the event also aired outside Japan as an internet pay-per-view (iPPV). Since 2015, the event has aired worldwide on NJPW's internet streaming site, NJPW World. The event is held in February, the month following NJPW's biggest annual event, the January 4 Dome Show, usually the culmination point of major storylines. As the name of the event suggests, it marks the beginning of a new year for the promotion. Since 2012, the event is mainly held at Osaka Prefectural Gymnasium (also known as Bodymaker Colosseum and Edion Arena Osaka) in Osaka.

    Leibniz's idealism is often ridiculed but...

    If the universe is entirely deterministic, would that not necessarily connect the beginning to the end in such a way that they exchange each other? And as such, wouldn't it mean that we live in Leibnitz's best of all worlds practically speaking, simply because it can't be any different? ...

    B Black hole at the beginning of time

    If all the matter was condensed to a single point at the beginning of the universe, then why didn't it all collapse into a black hole? I have heard speculation that the laws of physics change with time, is this the reason why there was no black hole at the beginning or is the reason more...

    I In the beginning there was.... a black hole?

    When matter is dense enough (most usually because its own gravity compresses it), it collapses into a black hole. The necessary density is defined by the Schwarzschild radius of that matter: If matter is inside its own Schwarzschild radius, it will collapse into a singularity (as far as we...

    I Does a beginning to time imply absolute speed?

    I’m just imagining spacetime that is spatially infinite but has a beginning in time. Naively, there would be only one (class of) reference frame(s with the same velocity) in which time starts simultaneously everywhere. (This is a naive application of “relativity of simultaneity” from SR.) But...
