The start of the world
The World Aloha states that The World is the collection of all the worlds including Stars, Planets and other astronomical objects of a significant scale within Space/ The Universe/ Multiverse/ Omniverse. The main theory on the beginning of The Universe is The Big Bang Theory. The theory goes that before the universe was what it is Today, all matter that would exist was concentrated in a single point thought to be the size of a tiny coin, a singularity; The Primeval Atom. In an instant, this singularity expanded creating Stars, Worlds, Moons, Asteroids, Meteors, Galaxies and more. Whether or not, it was a Super Awesome explosion or just a rapid expansion is still not completely determined. Regardless, Today the universe is still continuously expanding. The Big Bang is believed to have happened 13.8 Billion Years ago (the age of the universe). One Million Years Later Atoms formed, creating most of the elements we see in Today's World.
After The Big Bang occurred, The Universe was about the size of The Solar System filled with freely roaming primeval particles of energy known as quarks. After growing a thousandfold the protons and neutrons of the primeval particles executed fusion and gave birth to atomic nuclei. A few of the smaller elements that we see in Today's World were created at this point in time. Around thirty millenniums later, the neutrons became numerous enough to form gas clouds that formed colossal orbs made of plasma people call Stars. Stars, for the majority, are made of the elements Hydrogen and Helium.
Stars are a World of elements being created, all the way up to Iron, when Iron is created, this spells doom for the Star. When this happens multiple things can occur including Novas, Super Novas, Neutron Stars, Black Dwarfs, White Dwarfs, Nebulas, Pulsars and Black Holes. Now what happens to a star after it dies all depends on the size and what cycle of death the star is on.
Once the universe grew to be 20 percent the size of Today's Universe, stars became different teams in a way known today as galaxies. A Galaxy is a club of stars that are pulled together by the force of gravity. Gravity is a bend in SpaceTime that draws objects of mass together, the rule goes that, the more massive an object is, the more gravitational force it has. SpaceTime is the crossing of the three dimensions of space and single dimension of time together to form a fourth dimensional combination that determines the laws of the universe. A few galaxies present today are The Milky Way Galaxy (our galaxy), Leo I, Draco Galaxy, Canis Major overdensity , Centaurus A, Andromeda Galaxy, Large Magellanic cloud, Messier 87, & Virgo Stellar Stream.
One question remains however, where do planets, including Earth, come into being? When stars are forming, a disc of pre planetary dust revolves around it. This dust clashes and combines into planetary structures, growing bigger and bigger or even being destroyed, forming moons. Boom! A planet is born.
4.54 Billion years ago, Earth was born. Primeval Earth was hot and uninhabitable by today's standards. However, years later The Earth cooled significantly and something spectacular and rare occurred; Life came to be. Microscopic Single Celled organisms were formed, and Earth's niche was found. Now whether or not other worlds have or had life is unknown today, but it is speculated that Mars or even Venus may have once had complex life on its surface and/or atmosphere. Many planets are unique and special, Earth's thing is Life. Today, The Universe is vast and complex and beautiful & Earth is just a tiny part of a Big Awesome World.
The Solar System we live in Today is complex with all kinds of astronomical objects occurring within it. Some of these things are The Sun, Mercury, Venus, Earth, The Moon and moons, Mars, The Asteroid Belt, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune, Pluto, Comets & Meteors. Space itself, however, is a vast world of all these astronomical objects and exceptionally more. Space has other solar systems, galaxies, black holes, nebulas, Super Novas, Novas, other planets, Stars (stars like the sun, red giants, Super giants, Black Dwarfs, Brown Dwarfs, White Dwarfs, Neutron Stars and such), maybe even other universes and more in its collection. With all of these divergent phenomenon's in space, space is indeed a marvelous work of art; a cornucopia of fascinating matter.
The Multiverse theory states that we are not alone, that we are not the only universe, but that there are others; even an infinite number of universes. It might be said that there hath been many big bangs in The World and therefore there would be many, if not infinite universes. One prevailing thought in the multiverse theory is that with these many different choices and events that occurred in this universe, things may have panned out differently. For example, a person in our universe choose to eat Pineapple for breakfast, while in a different that person would have chosen to eat Cherries instead and in and in a different universe choose to eat Pomegranates & so on and so forth.
Another thought in this theory is that maybe the laws of physics may be slightly or completely different in these other universes. Though this may be a problematic form of thinking since in mathematics one plus two is always three no matter what and physics depends on mathematics in order to be understood. If gravity is indeed a bend in SpaceTime, then how could gravity be a force that actually repels you from a large body of material like a planet or star? Plus, wouldn't an opposite gravity mean that stars and planets would not be able to form since opposite gravity would act like two positive sides of two magnets? It seems that different universes having different rules of physics would be contradictory and would violate logic and reason. This relative view of different universes seems to be an inferior view while an Absolute view of the universes seems to be Superior.
Another problem that is ran into, is the different choices being made. Let's throw this thought experiment out there; If the laws of physics and mathematics are, indeed, absolute, then wouldn't it pre-determined where things will line up in the span of time. If the absolute law of physics determined that the universe we live in would expand the way it did, and that stars formed exactly where they did, then wouldn't that be an argument that different choices living beings make, not be choices at all, but just physics and mathematics working out exactly as it was calculated to have been worked out. This thought does trouble the Philosophical theory of free will. Do living things truly have free will, if everything boils down to a mathematical calculation? It is a hard question to answer and may make a man sleep uneasily. So even if there were multiple and even infinite universes, would it really be different, or just a clone of the one we are in? Either way, the idea of multiple universes, different or a clone, is still an awesome idea to think about.
Whether people or an alien species can reach into the other universes is yet to be known. Regardless, our universe is ever expanding and the exploration of it is an ever-evolving curiosity that will bring man to the far reaches of the universe and maybe the omniverse. There is a lot more to learn about where we are and maybe someday, we may know everything about The World!
