Main Question or Discussion Point
How specifically does LQG explain how the universe can oscillate from big bang to big crunch ad infinitum? Wouldn't the total energy able to be used as work decrease after a couple of bounces? Am I simply misunderstanding or making a false assumption about what LQG's premises are? I've not been following physics closely for several years, but I am familiar enough that you probably don't have to use metaphors to explain so feel free to be detailed.
