The preferred (Big Bang) theory is that the universe started as a super hot, super dense dit that was the size of an atom or less. The end of the universe (Big RIP) theory states that space will expand to the point that eventually every atom -- or maybe even every subatomic particle -- will start speeding away from its neighbors as the space between matter expands at a faster and faster rate. So, these tiny little dits of matter will be thrown at incredible speeds through space, as space expands exponentially. That increase in speed should impart a lot of energy into those dits of matter. That energy should be converted to heat and add to their mass, as those particles approach the speed of light. Eventually, each of these particles could become a super hot, super dense dit -- just like what they say the universe started as. Is it possible that we'll undergo a quantum expansion, where every particle of matter in the universe becomes a new universe with a big bang? Has any scientist already proposed a theory like this?
