Hot Head

  Home  Big Bang Cosmology Needs To Be Placed In Time OutTop Ten • USA • January 2017

Over the next ten days to ten weeks, each key point of Top Ten posting about Big Bang cosmology (New Year’s Eve 2016) will be re-worked until the general consensus is that each captures a greater truth.

#8  “It’s a hot head.”  Big Bang Cosmology has just one rule:  “It’s all about me.”  And, of course, about “my hot flashes…”

cmbrPlanck Temperature Power Spectrum has no system configuration.
It has no inherent operating system.
It is single dimensional.

Yet, it has plenty of personality. In one special exchange within an article, Absolute Hot by Peter Tyson (back when he was the Editor-in-chief of NOVA Online), Tyson declared, “…the Planck temperature, equals about 100 million million million million million degrees, or 1032 Kelvin.”  Now, the high school kids say, “That’s wicked hot.”

Tyson quotes Columbia physicist Arlin Crotts, “It’s ridiculous is what it is. It’s a billion billion times the largest temperature that we have to think about,” referring to gamma-ray bursts and quasars. And though it may have seemed to be a logical place to begin, 1032 K is a most enigmatic concept within which to find answers to questions about the deep nature of our universe.

Epochs of the Big Bang Cosmology. Notwithstanding, one of the most significant contributions of the big bang cosmology and its single trajectory, is the definition of as many as eighteen epochs (currently using Wikipedia definitions), all based on its temperature scale that generally outlines the continued expansion of the universe.

The Epochs of the Big Bang Cosmology are more simply-and-easily defined using base-2 exponentiation from the other four Planck base units and there is no need for a bang!  Yes, within our  areas of research for an Integrated Universe View (also known as the Big  Board-little universe project, and the base-2 view of the universe, each epoch has a corresponding link within our Quiet Expansion.

Also, each epoch gets opened up.  Each becomes an on-going process. From our cursory analyzes, none appear to have an ending. These epochs as defined by big bang cosmology establish the basic characteristics of an epochal process, even if its texture (personality) changes as the universe expands because in this model everything is necessarily connected to everything.

The Epochs of  Big Bang Cosmology _________________________________________ Epoch-like Processes of a Quiet Expansion
1.  The Planck Epoch A highly-speculative, rather radical proposal redefines the Planck Epoch as an ongoing process; a nexus of transformation between the finite-infiniteEditorial
2.  Grand Unification Epoch
Grand unification becomes part of the Planck processes by which inflation is created and sustained. Time and space are derivative.
3. Inflationary Epoch Inflationary processes, these icons of creation establish what is now known as natural inflation.
4. Electroweak Epoch
4.1 Baryogenesis  processes
____followed by nucleosynthesis
 Electroweak processes begin as defined by the epoch yet that continue to define  notations that exist today and carry on with a continuously  emergent electroweak process that quite possibly becomes the essence of quantum fluctuations.
5. Quark epoch Requires Supersymmetry
___Electroweak symmetry breaking
 Quark (Gluon) processes (opens a page to an article written in June 2016 where the first comparison with Big Bang Cosmology was made): If science stops at the CERN-scale and does not follow those continuity equations to the Planck scale (because it is always about a particle), it all quickly gets out of hand as these supersymmetry questions demonstrate.
6.  Hadron epoch Hadron processes
7.  Lepton epoch Lepton processes
8.  Photon epoch
9.  Nucleosynthesis epoch
Photon and
Nucleosynthesis processes
10. Matter domination epoch Matter-dominated processes
11. Recombination epoch  Recombination processes
12. Dark Ages Epoch Dark Ages transitions and processes
13.  Habitable Epoch Stelliferous processes
14.  Large-scale structure formation Epoch Dark Energy-dominated processes
15.  Reionization Epoch Reionization processes
16.  Star formation Epoch  Star formation processes
17.  Galaxies-clusters-supercluster Epoch Galaxies-clusters-supercluster processes 

We ignore Big Bang Cosmology’s only rule and postulate that the very earliest beginnings of the universe had little to do with temperature.

When Planck Time-Length-Charge-and-Mass are tracked together using base-2 notation, we get 67 notations  before encountering the CERN-scale.  Those 67 notations are a rich infrastructure to explore.  Conceptually and historically it has been given several names. Called the grid (Frank Wilczek), matrix (Sumit Das, Lei Lu, Miao Li and others), aether (Maxwell), plenun (Plato) or vinculum (Hocking, third paragraph),  it is truly a small-scale universe and structure. It is smaller than what we call the CERN-scale; it is the first one-third of the total 200+ notations. The human scale goes from 67 to 134 and the large scale goes from 134 to just over 200. The very last notation within this chart is always the current notation, age of the universe, or the Now.

This model is totally predictive; the entire universe throughout all time is covered with numbers and geometries. We emphasize is that the first second of the universe  is between notations 142 and 143, clearly well-over two-thirds of the way through the entire chart.

The most surprising observation is that the epochs defined by Big Bang Cosmology are also logically captured in the same order, right here, and all without an initial bang!  As we survey the numbers within each notation,  there is a progressive logic for each of the Planck base units and for each multiple across all 200+ notations.

The biggest problem with Big Bang Cosmology is that it ignores the bedrock principles of science, continuity and symmetry. Those two go a long way in explaining homogeneity and isotropy. And the more you spend time within the chart, the more you believe it has a lot to do with dark matter and dark energy. Here is an ordering system that big bang cosmology  needs to address the growing number of  open questions about it.

Perhaps Stephon Alexander, Brown (ArXiv) catches the flavor best.  In the article, Absolute Hot  author, Peter Tyson, says, “Alexander described two potential ways the universe began. Either it was at the Planck temperature and then inflated and cooled to create what we see today. Or it started off at zero temperature and speeded up as it expanded. “So one of two situations could have happened,” he said, “and it would be interesting if, indeed, both situations are really the same underlying phenomenon.”

The Planck temperature is defined as:planktemperature

Exploring this quote: “It requires a temperature of 1027 K for the average particle energy to be 1014 GeV.”

Max Karl Ernst Ludwig Planck, (April 23, 1858 – October 4, 1947) was a German theoretical physicist who originated quantum theory, which won him the Nobel Prize in Physics in 1918.  On December 14, 1900, Max Planck presents his work that determined the Planck constant (at the German Physical Society. See 5:27 and 6:26).

Peter Tyson (Sky & Telescope Editor in Chief since October 2014. From 1998 to 2012, Peter was editor in chief of NOVA Online” While at Nova, he wrote, Absolute Hot. There, he also quoted:
Robert Brandenberger, theoretical cosmologist, McGill University, Montreal
Cumrun Vafa, Harvard string theorist, “Classical general relativity calls for an infinitely high temperature at the very start of the universe, as well as in the centermost point, the singularity, of black holes.”

As you might imagine, my more theologically-oriented friends have their own special observations and criticisms!
