big bang, big crunch??? I have a couple questions. The big bang happened and now the universe is expanding, and It will at some point contract and begin back at where and what it was at the big bang. Is that correct? Now, after it crunches it will bang again. Is it going to produce the same outcome? will, or can things happened exactly the same way again and again? I mean exactly the same, with earth and life and everything. The way I reason this is that afcter the big crunch we will be back at the start with a singularity that would be the same one as when the big bang happened because obviously we haven't accuired any new matter or anything to make the big bang singularity any different, and what governed the outcome of the universe, all kinds of rules and things, so why did things happen in the order they did and why or why couldn't it happen exactly the same again. I could take this as far as thinking i could be typing this same question in billions of years and billions after that too.
