The ever-so-kindly Prof. Dr. Neil Turok is taking his old friend to task.

June 25, 2017, Perimeter Institute, Waterloo, Ontario, Canada: Neil Turok, a colleague, long-standing friend, and one-time collaborator and co-author[1] with Stephen Hawking, has joined a growing number of scholars, a crescendo that cannot be ignored, who say, “The big bang theory is wrong.”

Reporters throughout the United Kingdom, and the scientific press around the world are reporting on Turok’s comment that the universe is actually in “a perpetual state of big bangs.” His co-author and young colleague at Perimeter, Job Feldbrugge, says, “Our research implies that we either should look for another picture to understand the very early universe, or that we have to rethink the most elementary models of quantum gravity.” Feldbrugge echoes earlier work by Richard Muller, a Berkeley physicist, and Carlo Rovelli, an Italian-French physicist. The growing group of cosmologists, physicists and other scientists who question the theory is formidable.

More and more people from within the general public seem to be questioning it as well. Though relatively new to formal studies in cosmology, Bruce Camber and this website are increasingly critical of the big bang theory, especially the de facto nihilism that it encourages. Camber commented, “Turok may be the one who finally fells the tree that contains the big bang apple and its Newtonian commonsense worldview. I hope, some day soon, we will be able to say that big bang nihilism is fading away, maybe even dying. We began questioning it in 2014. So what? We’re nobody from nowhere!”

In April 2017 Job Feldbrugge, Jean-Luc Lehners, and Neil Turok [2] authored an ArXiv article (Cornell University), that opened the door for today’s critical point of view. It was titled, No smooth beginning for spacetime.

Camber continued, “Their article is not light reading. Notwithstanding, in our extreme naïveté we must conclude that these three scholars are on the right path but have reached the wrong conclusions. These scholars still hold to a modified big bang theory. And, although our work originated from a high school geometry class, we do not.”

The starting point for big bang cosmology is infinitely dense and infinitely hot. Within this website the opposite is true. This very simple, mathematical model of the universe begins with the infinitesimals, Planck Length and Planck Time, and the very small units of Planck Mass and Planck Charge. Doubling each value over and over again, 67 times before reaching the CERN-scale, creates a very smooth, initially-simple, homogeneous universe that quickly becomes exquisitely-complex. This group holds that these 67 doublings, steps or notations are the foundations that give rise to our physical universe.

Turok claims that the universe is a perpetual state of big bangs. Camber says, “These are the primordial fluctuations that have been below the intellectual radar of all those scholars who hold onto big bang cosmology.”

Though hardly-known among the scholarly community, this skeletal model has well-over 1000 calculations, all simple mathematics to study. Called the Big Board-little universe Project and Quiet Expansion, spacetime is redefined in terms of light symmetry and continuity. Its backdoor is a pathway between the finite and infinite. The first moment of creation is still happening now. Each notation of the total of 202 notations is actively defining the universe. So, in that regard, Turok and his group are correct, it is perpetual, but Camber and his group would say, “It is not a bang.”

The Quiet Expansion model has just 202 doublings. The first moment of creation is Notation #1. The first second of creation is between notations 143 and 144. The present day, current hour, and this very second is within the 202nd notation. In this model, everything is necessarily related to everything. Continuity-and-symmetry become the penultimate.

They say, “Although we have begun to interpret the numbers — it is not easy — there is a long way to go.”

Endnotes and footnotes:

[1] The big bang theory is so entrenched within popular culture, it will take somebody who is a collaborator and co-author of Stephen Hawking to lift the bane of his theory — nihilism– from within the minds of people. Prof. Dr. Neil Turok held the Chair of Mathematical Physics at the University of Cambridge starting in 1997 and became Director of the Perimeter Institute in 2008.

[2] Following the work of scholars has become so much easier with websites like ArXiv (Cornell University). Each of these authors — Job Feldbrugge, Jean-Luc Lehners, and Neil Turok — have additional work that can be explored. No smooth beginning for spacetime examines key insights for their conclusions that Hawking is wrong.

More background by Bruce Camber:

This simple mathematical model is a scripting program to outline the big bang epochs, yet there is no bang per se. It defines a natural inflation that is 100% predictive. It mimics cellular reproduction. It includes everything for all time and in all space. Simple, elegant, comprehensive, it is a basic mathematical platform that appears readily to incorporate and support all other mathematics that define the Standard Model of Cosmology (Lambda-CDM model). It will take some work, but the Standard Model of Particle Physics should be supported as well.

That is enough, but then, it does so much more. It opens up possibilities and probabilities. While still infinitesimal, it creates space for philosophies (even ethics), and the mind (even sleep). It gives homogeneity and isotropy a platform. It also gives dark matter and dark energy a foundation. And, most importantly, it redefines the infinite in ways that might open dialogues about universals and constants, the ultimate and eternal, first within the sciences, then between science and philosophy, then between science and religion, and maybe even between different religions.

Why didn’t the academics and scholars find this simple little model?

Planck Units: In the six years from conception to publishing, 1899-1905, Max Planck worked with five universal physical constants to define an essential reality and base platform for measurement. The result was four Planck base units: Planck Time, Planck Length, Planck Mass and Planck Charge that were “…properties of nature and not from any human construct.” Although engaged by many over time, the Planck numbers did not command basic respect across the entire scientific community. Not until 2001 when Frank Wilczek (MIT, Nobel laureate 2004) wrote a series of three articles for Physics Today, Scaling Mt. Planck, did I, II, III, these Planck units begin to move beyond numerology into wide-scale acceptability.

By that time, the big bang theory had gained the high ground. Nobody thought to follow simple nested or combinatorial geometries back to the Planck Length. Nobody thought to multiply the Planck units by 2. It took a huge amount of naïveté and almost no knowledge of cosmological models to bias one’s point of view. It also required discounting our commonsense view promulgated by Isaac Newton that space and time are absolute. In so doing, a more relational model as suggested in 1715 by Leibniz could be entertained.

Today, there are three simultaneous research projects to define this model more completely:
• Measuring an Expanding Universe Using Planck Units (first draft)
• The Thrust of the Universe: What is it? (first draft)
• Visualizing the Universe (work in progress)
We invite your comments and questions about our simple, highly-integrated, mathematical model of the Universe.
Thank you. – Bruce Camber
