Calculation of Eternity

    Calculation of Eternity.

    Chères personnes.

    Can you please forward informations and scientific references,
    concerning Dr Stephen Hawking's calculations, that led him to
    theorise and demonstrate, that the Universe never had a com-
    mencement, and is Eternal.

    Dieu vous bliss!

    Last I heard, Dr. Hawking subscribed to the standard model of cosmology, where did you hear that he demonstrated that the universe had no beginning?

    James Hartle, Niel Turok and Stephen Hawkings worked on cosmologies that required no initial singular spacetime beginning, using math objects called "Instantons" and a complexified type of time coordinate. Check here for a quick introduction.

    Formula for eternity

    Eternity -
    For every moment 'X' there will exist a moment 'X+1"
    For every moment 'X' there did exist a moment 'X-1"
    Any questions?
