Entropy and the big bang on to the big crunch and back

  • #1

Main Question or Discussion Point

OK the question is this. if we say the big bang big crunch module is true and entropy increases over time is there a set law to say it wont increase to the end of the big crunch, and if it dose will it affect the next big bang, if so could this be the only or last big bang that contained life, suns etc. i probably misinterpreted the info but can anyone help with the problem.

If there were a repeating cycle of big bangs and big crunches, I would assume that entropy would be "reset" each time with the destruction of all matter and it being reborn again as hydrogen/helium.
