Who created the universe?
One of the most asked question in the history of our universe. Who created the universe? Was it titans? God? men of another universe? (yes, that’s also a theory). The answer is still not known. But I’ll tell you one thing: after reading this article, you will be able to deduce the answer yourself.
Long before Internet, or even telephone. Long before the peace treaty signed by nations when it was prohibited to travel beyond borders when international communication was a dream. I am going to talk about the time even before that. When America did not exist, and Europe did not know about China or India. Let’s go back to 3000BC.
The first complex civilization of this world is Mesopotamia, and why would someone say it is first when it definitely is not? Because before this civilization, there is no written evidence of any other civilization. It’s been 5000 years since and nothing much can sustain that long. If there was any other civilization before that, which most logically, existed, then without any written proof, we cannot presume anything.
Now my point: since not many people existed in the world during that time (0.6%), communication was least of humanity’s concern in that era. It was Europe thousands of years later that first decided to explore the world (apparently). So it is not possible for a myth to be false if it is present in every text of every civilization thousands of years ago.
Whether it is Lord Indra of Hinduism or old pervert Greek god, Zeus, both controlled lightning. And again, since this topic is way too controversial for a blog article, I’ll conclude one thing: Some myths are not just myths.
There either is some connection behind that or maybe Zeus was real. One thing is for sure, we, as humans are still not sure about the actual history. Maybe there was a battle that wiped away civilizations and the hero who saved the world was a lightning powerhouse. And when writers/artists of the different cultural background (who were actually inspired by this lightning hero), created their masterpieces, that would later become a religious script.
Comparative mythology purposed a new branch of study years ago in which various myths are studied for one common origin.
Now, how is that connected with the formation of our universe?
Is the universe even a real entity?
Entity: a thing with independent existence. That’s why the universe is not a real entity.
We are not certain about the limit of our own universe. Calculations of borders are completely hypothetical. There are no borders. Each second, universe expands by 67 kilometers. Not sure how big that number is?
Consider you are sitting in a room, reading a book. every second the books moves further away from you. And since time is a human-made concept, and also it is relative to the subject of perception, it varies. Each cell of your body gets apart from themselves every second as your body expands in (size) relative to the book and the room. That’s why the difference is not noticeable.
And since the universe is expanding at such rate, it is only fair to assume that it all began at a zero point. There was a time when the universe was just 1 millimeter deep. The expand rate is not linear, so it might have taken thousands of years for our universe to expand even that 1 millimeter.
Read that above paragraph again if you didn’t get it.
The universe was created by something that doesn’t even exist.
Hurray atheists! you won this battle!!! Since you don’t believe in the existence of the God, it’s time you accept who created it all.
Why does the universe even expand? How does that make sense?
It is still unknown. Yes, there are many theories about dark matter, or anti-matter, or other dimensions that force upon this expansion but I will not eat any more brain of yours.
And the probability is not key to solving this mystery anymore.
How big is the universe?
Answer: 94,607,304,725,808,000,000,000 kilometers approx.
And I am pretty sure this number is wrong by at least billionth place, but that’s how far as human science can reach in precision.
I don’t entirely believe in many myths myself, but looking for reasons is my job. Civilization can be traced back to 80,000 BC and that is way before the known Mesopotamia.
But we still lack public evidence. We cannot know for sure if everything we read in books is factual. And since Internet public knowledge is derived from these sort of books, it’s hard to believe what I or anyone else say on the matter is true. It’s all about beliefs, in the end.
So, do you think it was God who triggered in our creation? Or was it us who created the concept of God for our own ease of understanding. Whatever it is, it’s still an unsolved mystery.
In next article, I’ll discuss the dimensions and you will not find those conclusions anywhere else. Is forth dimension time? We are not even sure about the third dimension. See you next time.
