Hello everyone. First off, I'm no astrophysist, but I'd been reading around and thinking about something. From what I gather, eventually the universe will contract back down to singularity (probably?) and there will be another big bang, creating another universe (this is all from my basic understand of cosmology...which is limited). Anyways, after the next big bang, does anyone have any idea if the same laws of physics that exist now will hold, or will the be changed based on some random fluctuations at the start of the universe? For example, could the law of conservation of energy no longer apply, or maybe F=ma will become a square fuction like F=ma^2 or something? Basically, I guess what I'm wondering is, are the laws we have now going to be around after the next big crunch/bang cycle? Forgive my ignorance on these topics...but thank you!
