I wonder if the Big Bang was caused by two or more universes colliding and merging together. Just imagine, a sea of universes moving through an eternal space. This could mean that some atoms, subatomic particles, and energy existed prior to the Big Bang, and the collision created a unique combination that is the observable universe in which we reside. We are far away from the edge of our universe and it may not ever be possible to ever observe anything that exists outside our universe, but it is an awe inspiring to contemplate the scale of a meta-universe.

Hi Tom, and other friends.  I've been busy trying to keep our plants watered, and our neighbor became a widow last year, so I'm trying to help her out when I have time.  I also found a site, "Atheist-Theist" on Facebook.  It's fun, but there aren't any real challenges there.

James, your thesis could result in some good sci-fi and you might write some that many will read.

Follow your 'bliss'. Invent some people readers will like and hope will win; invent at least one villian and a story line, and go for the gold.

Hi, Donald. where have you been?

Wonderment is part of the fun of science. Checking our wonderments against the evidence we have contributes to the excitement.

I've always thought the universe goes on forever.  No beginning, no end, no edges.  forever.  Although the part that we can see seems to be expanding, we have no way of knowing.  Let me explain.  If you are sweeping a dusty floor, you see swirls of dust following the broom.  If you were a microbe on a speck of dust in one of those swirls, it would appear the universe is expanding.  Since the universe is so large, we have no way of knowing what is going on.  There is another thought I have, that I call the "donut".  If the universe is shaped like a donut, and we are in the position shown in the illustration, it would appear the universe is expanding.  Such a condition could exist if there was an explosion, comparable to a gun shot, that occurred somewhere in that universe without edges.  I call this theory "A shot in the dark".  I enjoy this one more because I picture some guy coming home and finding his wife in bed with someone else, and he shoots one of them.  We are on a speck of smoke in the smoke ring at the end of the barrel.  The smoke ring would be shaped like a donut, but "dynamic",

Does any of this make sense?
