    Wait what if the big bang was actually a true vacuum created by the civilization that lived in that universe.that explains the
    Nothing->something mystery.
    But if a universe where a higgs field doesnt exist/is at its lowest energy state.
    Aaaand fuck...i just destroyed my theory.too lazy to delete it anyways

  • Daniel Boom
    Daniel Boom 5 days ago

    You said that the new stable higgs would move at the speed of light in all directions but then you also said that it would suck up everything in a fraction of a second so suppose that the higgs reaches this state at the edge of the observible universe and as you said it would be moving at the speed of light and the edge of what we can see is billions of light years away wouldn't this mean that it would take billions of years for it to reach our solar system? Also thyarically couldn't this of already of happened and we just can't see it because it would be passed what it is we can observe and with the universe continuing to expand we would possible not see it coming for millions possibly billions are years before we do giving us billions of years after that to still prepare to do something about it?

    The current universe could originate from a vacuum decay of the Higgs Field in a previous universe, a dramatic process which we call “big bang”. The Higgs Field was of higher energy level in the original universe, where all the four fundamental forces are united and physics laws are much more elegant.

    There's nothing to say vacuum decay emanates energy in a manner we're able to observe or be affected by anyways. It may reciprocate as a whole or fractional anti CPT symmetric equivalent in a mirrorverse that's intrinsically linked to ours, it might have been happening for as long as the universe has been able to be observed.

    If vacuum decay could destroy things so fast that we couldn't detect it, I would not give much thought about it. Knowing that everything just destroyed in a second I might as well enjoy life without overthinking about it.

    The speed of light might not be so fast, but it's fast enough to put you "instantly" in any place of the universe... With the down side that you basically travel through time and everything else becomes old but you stay the same age

    So if they might never reach us because of the expansion of the universe, doesn't that mean it's NOT an efficient way to destroy the universe? It might be a way to destroy parts of it, but not the whole thing..

  • Fainted DayDream
    Fainted DayDream 15 days ago

    Here's a theory. If the universe was about to die of heat death, the universe would be expanding so fast, that the expansion of the universe would, in fact, be faster that the Vacuum Decay. I don't exactly know what would happen after that, but it would be fascinating wouldn't it? Maybe that would be our last hope? Since, as he said, the inside of this Vacuum Decay could have different properties and physics would be much different. Meaning that may stop or slow down heat death, be our last hope of shelter, or it'll do nothing and we'll all die. It's very interesting when you think about it, isn't it?
