From Nothing to Existence

The universe we live in, the "solar system" sometimes known as Sol, was created from a void of nothingness. This may come as a tough truth for some who hoped for something like a benevolent old man in the clouds creating us, but I will later describe how all hope is not lost for even that supernatural deity hypothesis.

I came up with this theory independently of the current cutting edge cosmologists, such as Max Tegmark and Lawrence M. Krauss. I would also argue that to a fairly large extent, I have gone much further than they have down this path of recognition of our origins.

 I realized for example that Max Tegmark's mathematical creation hypothesis, while entirely accurate, was missing the crucial ingredient of consciousness to define a universe and that consciousness is the very mathematical formula he was seeking.

Without consciousness, debating the existence or non-existence of something is pointless. Consciousness is what creates the distinction between existence and non-existence in the only meaningful way the distinction can exist. I believe that consciousness is what makes a universe appear to us as our own solar system does, or another solar system does, as a point of light in the sky, rather than a dark matter entity, which it now seems to observational astronomy, that there are plenty of. I think these dark matter entities are other strange and perhaps abstract mathematical entities that are parallel to us, but also mostly non-existent because of the lack of observational consciousness within them.
But wait! I said something important without explaining it. "The universe, our solar system?" But our solar system is inside what we call "The Universe"? That does not mesh with conventional scientific understanding of 'The Universe". We see other solar systems! The scientists will exclaim. We can detect them in other ways as well.

What I have now come to understand is that what we see is indeed another [solar system], but it can also be understood as another [universe] in that it was created independently out of the same void of nothingness. What we see in the night sky and through telescopic observation is light. Light that is penetrating through a depth that we think of and perceive as a vast distance. The crucial missing ingredient is a gravity penetrating property of light that has to do with C, the speed at which light travels in a vacuum. What I believe is happening is a gravitational interaction that light is able to "hitch a ride" on, because of it's uniqueness due to its ultimate speed.

What we see in the night sky as stars in other words are separated by a vast perceived distance. In actuality thinking of it as distance, rather than something that might be described as a gravitational void-gulf, or even a gulf of null entity, between parallel Universes that are interacting with each other gravitationally and via that principle of light's speed that penetrates this gulf of separation, would be inaccurate.

One could envision a universe without these interactions as completely separate nodes, unaware of each other, and thus not really on the same "brane" or fabric of reality, but because of the fact that light has this strange property of outrunning everything and can hitch a ride through the gravitational connection that permeates these universes we exist more or less on the same brane of reality, in that we can observe light from parallel universes and gravitational forces as stars and other "solar systems" some nearly unfathomable distance away.

This of course implies that our solar system is in itself a separate universe, created by what Lawrence M. Krauss so eloquently stated in his interview with Stephen Colbert, "The instability of nothing".

But that brings us always back to that ultimate question? Why us? If we were created out of some accidental property of nothingness, what shaped us into human beings? The theory of evolution is decent, I suppose, but I am hesitant to dismiss a "creator hypothesis" by the fact that existence is defined by consciousness. I believe the answer is albeit marvelous and wondrous, not as "super"natural as you might be inclined to react to it, once you've read it.

What came out of that void that makes us so special and significant was a conscious being before it was a planetary system made out of what we know as matter. Perhaps evolution was this primordial-consciousness-being sorting out form and existence into something comfortable. Perhaps it was not as goal oriented as we think it should have been, indeed how could it have been, arising from nothing. Maybe the very imposition of our belief that it should have had a goal more suited to us, is fallacious reasoning.
Perhaps, it may still have other iterations of existence in store for its universe, our home and solar system, Sol.

What I take from it, is that I can truly feel at one with the beings around me and the universe, knowing that we are all one creation. I am also excited to wonder what might be living around every single one of those points of light in the night sky. What kind of creation is there that is so remarkably similar to us, in that they are all stars, alike in some ways and vastly different in others, to ours?
