ZetaTalk: Turnabout
Note: written during the 2001 sci.astro debates.

Does the expansion coming out of a Big Bang continue forever, or does it turnabout and become a large Black Hole, to start the process again? A discussion on these issues places man outside of his environment, as to him he sees only expansion in the Universe around him, so a turnabout is theoretical and thus subject to haggling. We, the Zetas, have visited portions of the Universe where a turnabout is in process, so can speak to these issues with confidence. However, on these sci.astro debates, haggling occurs in any case. To make the statement that expansion goes on into infinity is to assume that such activity occurs in a vacuum - a silly assumption. You have expansion and contraction occurring in a school yard, when a toy rocket is sent skyward and then slows and falls back to earth. Should one of the boys declare that the rocket will proceed forever, based on dissecting the trajectory so only the escape is considered, he’d be called a fool. But on sci.astro, this is allowed to be a serious argument.

So what are the factors that influence a turnabout?

First, the rush of matter leaving a Big Bang is not homogeneous, else formation of stars and planets would not occur but the Universe would be like Jell-O or pudding, all one consistency. Subatomic particles retain their identify even within a Black Hole, and waste no time returning to their familiar dance of interaction with other particles, based on their nature, when freed from the constraints of the Black Hole. Thus, during the rush of matter leaving an exploding Black Hole, there are parts to the side as well as before and behind any given matter or clump of matter, and this is the incipient basis of the turnabout. An endless stretch into infinity, that silly argument, assumes only the influence behind any given escaping matter, which is simply never the case.

Second, incipient Black Holes are formed immediately after a Big Bang, and why would they not? Black Holes are driven by gravity, a gravitational giant that assumed a density so intense that the flow of gravity particles attracted to it overwhelms the outbursts of particles squeezing out from the center, tipping the equilibrium such that an ever-increasing density of the gravitational giant occurs. Gradually, it builds in strength and size, and pulls from the side that matter moving outward from the Big Bang. So the motion changes from expansion to a slowing curve, and eventually to a compression of matter into the nearest Black Hole, and thence of Black Holes into each other, until the stage is set for another Big Bang.
