Prof. Brian Cox is so hipster, nebulae just follow him around wherever he goes.

Just watched the first episode in the series & though a lot of things make sense, it’s the whole “everything will die and the universe will become nothing” I don’t agree with at the moment.
If everything is progressively becoming disorganised from a previously ordered state, then wouldn’t that nothingness lead to chaos which leads to order again? Ergo, big bang two? Maybe the universe is already in the throws of a 4th big-bang aftershock, I don’t know. It’s a circular pattern and one we see at all levels in the universe, so I can’t fathom (at the moment, anyway) how the “end of the universe” would lead to just nothing.
Anyone care to discuss?

It is only human to try and find pattern and order in everything we see. Saying that the process of our universe(s) is a “circular pattern” is just that. We can not fathom either infinity or nothingness. What’s to say that the current big bang is the the first and last and the only big bang ever? That is just as plausible as your argument of a “circular pattern.” You can not imagine the end of time and the nothingness that entails so you think there must be another cycle, like birth and death.
Btw I mostly agree with you, it’s just that I saw the discuss word and couldn’t help it.

(sorry, reblogged from sis’ account then) ANYWAY - I do appreciate the response!
I felt as if that particular dramatic statement  was suddenly thrown on my shoulders without any lengthy explanation. I don’t  think I have problems with the concepts of chaos, infinity or death, but that  might be my pigheadedness - Also (hate to sound like Mick Jagger tattling on the  Beatles) but Cox was using concrete formulaes/life-patterns of stars to predict  “the end” of the universe too, so it must be something based on/flaunting a  pattern (even if just coincidence). I definitely know I’ll have to read about  the subject more.
Glutton for punishment though, watching Horizon’s What is Reality episode  now. TOO MANY PROTONS.

Oh I see. Well I haven’t watched it yet - too busy thinking about writing a dissertation. And that Horizon episode is just too good ha.

Watch it when you get time, it is pretty good. Well, despite the times you will cringe because of the Creed/Nickelback/”rock”-soundtrack-esque backgroung music they play at said certain ‘dramatic statement’ points.
What ideas have you for dissertation?
