I'm a pirate math-magician living in the empires give-a-penny/take-a-penny jar studying funny money, peak oil, geo-politics, and the inevitable NWO.
I grew up in a small, beer-drinking, factory town populated predominately by apes. There were some elite homo erectus, and even two neanderthals. Not many atheists. Very lonely existence.
Theory of everything in a nutshell. Universe is expanding. Rewinding the clock go's back to a point of singularity. The singularity blew up because it was unstable. But if you are one moment before the singularity explodes and you rewind the clock for infinity, it would be impossible that the singularity could stay stable. From this we can infer that the universe must have collapsed previous to this universe. Expand/contract over and over. Each universe being unique but on the grand scale mostly the same. "Our" universe could be a component of a larger one, but the rule still applies. Big bang and black holes is all you need.
