So I understand there's rarely such a thing as an original idea. Perhaps this is already out there if so let me know. From what I understand, one interesting way to look at the speed of light, is that it is the speed that everything travels at except when it has mass to slow it down. It is the base speed of the universe. From the perspective of something traveling the speed of light it would be everywhere at the same time. In a sense mass creates time Because we are creatures of mass, we see it the other way round, where the universe is being weird when objects approaches the speed of light, rather thus us being the weird thing experiencing this thing called time. Whats the point in saying this? Where does it get us? What would the universe be like if everything consisted off massless particles. Wouldn't every single particle be in every location at the same "time" so to speak. There would be no such thing as time, but if you were able to have the perspective of one of those particles, couldn't you say, every location in space has exactly every particle in it at the same "time", and that every single particle is in every single location. Here's the question. Isn't that the same as what the very start of the universe was, all of everything in one point without the existence of time? And could it be that the introduction of mass created the bigbang? That in a sense the big bang was just a consequence, the what would have to happen once time was created. Has this been discussed mentioned thought about before, if so what's the consensus, if not what's your opinion on this perspective. Note: I understand this could be seen as a personal theory... hypothesis, however all premises are grounded in real physics, this is more a matter of perspective, altering our perceptions to help us understand the universe.
