Do you believe something (THEORETICALLY) traveling faster than the speed of light could have been the cause of the Big Bang?

It is theorized that traveling faster than the speed of light compresses space-time. Push this theory to the maximum and it would result in the whole universe being in one VERY small area (the moment before the Big Bang). Then whatever caused this compression reached their destination or destroyed themselves perhaps. Then BOOM the moment of the Big Bang! Maybe I've been reading too much or maybe it really does make sense. Let me know what you think! Always happy for feedback that isn't "what are the specifics" *cough cough* (Blade Runner)

    When one side of the scale is heavily concentrated with the wishes of many it may not be possible for the light side to persuade them of their wrongful path. Go back to bed.

    Jun 8 2013: So LaMar you're saying the something called quantum vacuum fluctuation per-existed the Big Bang? Where the heck did that come from? You can't have motion without some kind of impetus. A fluctuation is movement.

    I've studied their models. They all get stuck on this point. It all goes down the rabbit hole right here.

      Jun 8 2013: There is not a thorough enough understanding of things happening at a quantum level. To us they defy the laws of physics, appearing in 2 places at once and other such strangeness. Glad you looked up the models John. I'm kinda lazy right now.
  • Jun 4 2013: The big bang (according to modern science) created both space and time. There was no such thing as "before the big bang", because time did not exist.

      Jun 4 2013: So it is theorized. You have to remember the Big Bang is not a fact. It is just a widely believed THEORY.

      Jun 3 2013: I do believe something existed before the Big Bang. Kind of like people believe in God with no evidence. I don't believe there was nothing forever before the Big Bang. That's just not likely to my mind but Hey I'm no psychic or professional in any of these fields. I have a general understanding and some creativity. That's about it.

        Jun 7 2013: If there was nothing before the big bang, how did you get here and where did you come from?

        0 + 0 = 0

          Jun 8 2013: I said I don't believe there was nothing. There had to be something somewhere. What I'm saying here is that the Big Bang was caused by some form of future technology we developed to exceed the speed of light. The Big Bang could have been 2 ships in warp that crashed into each other. The universe could be hundreds of billions of years old for all we know. Look at the destruction we cause with the technology we have now. Imagine us able to bend the laws of physics whenever we please? I see that going very bad, very fast.

    You know, I started to say something like that but thought I might sound a bit off in left field. I'm glad you said it first. I do think about things like that from time to time. Eternity has to be bound together in some manner. Why not a loop of events. It doesn’t' have to be a circle either, it could be a spiral as each trip through the loop added or took something away, altering its path through reality.

    It could look like a flash of bright light to an observer in another plane of existence. While to us and all our kind throughout all their experience it appears as an endless string of events, moving and dancing together in the confines of our singular universe.

    In reality all things are bound together. Even eternity has to be bound to all possible outcomes in some way, fixated by a thread of existence, or a self generated field of power we may find hard to understand.

    Jun 7 2013: To overcome the forces of a singularity one would think so. But, what if it was just a bump from the other side that set things off? Bane theory?

    Jun 3 2013: It might have been a contributing cause but not the primary, root cause because it must have a cause so the solution remains hidden. On the other hand I don't think anything could have pre-existed the BB could it? Isn't the BB considered T=0? Was this speedy thing existing before Time? Welcome to the Twilight Zone.

      Jun 3 2013: It really is twilight zone Ed. I think that if this did happened we wouldn't have a way to know anyway. If space-time was compressed into this small an area everything probably got destroyed, due to the forces pulling them into this small area. For the BB being that start of time that is simply our assumption seeing as the BB is still just a theory, believed by many but still just a theory. Theoretically there would not be evidence to find and we could not fathom a time before that since it took us 13+ Billion years to get back to this, if we were ever there. Imagine how long it would take for such a technology to be discovered and manipulated to reach such a powerful result! We are capable of many things we thought were impossible in the past. I just try to keep an open mind and let the ideas flow. Let me know what you think of this. I went back and changed some stuff so something might be badly worded. Sorry.

        Jun 4 2013: We are talking about an improbable, hypothetical, conditional, theoretical, tentative, imaginative, immature explanation for cosmogony and cosmology. Keep on letting the ideas free-flow , but touch bases with real life once in a while.

          Jun 4 2013: Yes, but almost all ideas for topics so complex start out seen as what you're saying. I know what you mean though evidence is needed to give anything strength. But that is only step 1. Step 2 is to observe. We cannot surpass light yet, so this is all just a dream of mine at this point. Maybe one day someone will prove me right with proper tools, maybe not. I'd be happy either way just to know for sure. Thank you for the perspective Ed. I appreciate it and have gained a broader sight because of it.

        Jun 4 2013: Cherenkov Radiation exceeds the speed of light. Also, Einstein said nothing could accelerate up to c and then exceed it. He allowed for the existence of "something" exceeding c IF it was created moving at such a velocity (i.e. it did not accelerate up to c).
