Ciclyc universe

  1. Feb 7, 2010 #1
    Is it possible that the universe we live in has a ciclyc way of existing?
    I mean,could our universe born with te big bang,then expand,stop expanding,to slowly attract matter in one point than implode;and after all this to explode again in another big bang?

    The issue here is finding evidence the universe has experienced prior incarnations. The cyclic universe is a great theory and avoids a finite time of existence, but, is purely speculative until compelling observational support is found. No such evidence has been found to date.
