Can anybody suggest an avenue for resolving a predicament I face over big bang theory? I'm a geophysicist and work in remote areas, engaged in seismic data acquisition projects. I am fascinated by what I read on theoretical physics, and the fascination is focused on the (so far unsuccessful) quest for quantum gravity theory. It seems to me that there are a few voids in what experts write for the public, and I would like to ask some questions about why certain areas relevant to geophysics don't get a mention in big bang theory. Even allowing for the quantum mechanics that governed the very early universe, the characteristics of energy get little mention in what I read. One of my problems is that I am not an academic, and have no training in philosophy. I am just a field man whose speciality is the acquisition of seismic data. But I do know a bit about the propagation of energy. Another of my problems is that no Physicist I know is versed in theoretical physics, and none can provide comment on the questions - other than that I ought to take them further. Those who could comment knowledgeably are too busy to read the questions. The third problem is that the questions are not one-liners and need, I feel, some background to the reasons for asking them. There are ten of them, and at their most compressed they occupy eight A4 pages. Does anybody know of any panel of experts, or any individual, who could be approached by an academic outsider, and who might consider considering the questions? Thank you.
