In episode 3 of the Cosmic Connection, LPPFusion Chief Scientist Eric Lerner continues to describe the broad outlines of universal evolution without a Big Bang or an origin of the universe in time. The universe has evolved away from equilibrium, with larger and larger energy fluxes—the density or concentration of energy flows has tended to increase. This evolution has accelerated with time.
This is a very different narrative of the origins of the structure that we see around us in the universe from the Big Bang’s: the huge explosion and expansion, the mysterious inflation, dark matter and dark energy mixed in. What difference do these narratives make to people in the here and now, in June 2020 on a planet gripped by multiple crises?
People have always looked to cosmic origin narratives to make sense of their own lives, especially in times of crisis. The Big Bang narrative does not give a lot of guidance in earthly crises. It is a universe doomed to decay, where the evolution of life and human society are an insignificant transitory blip on a tiny speck of dust. Fortunately, this pessimistic narrative is completely scientifically wrong.
The non-Big-Bang narrative gives us rational reason for hope. It shows us that accelerating evolution is the rule in the universe, and interruptions of that evolution—crises—are the aberrations—although as we will see, frequent and unavoidable ones. So that provides us with a rational, scientific basis for hope: crises can be and have been overcome—that is the basic tendency of nature, of universal evolution.
This scientifically supported narrative shows us that we must find a way to increase the energy flow density, to find sustainable ways of developing here on earth more concentrated sources of energy. To escape from the present crisis, we need to harness the same power that now powers the universe—fusion power.
Another way the two cosmic narratives matter is that the Big Bang narrative doesn’t make any sense. The Big Bang theory is not only wrong in so many ways, it also undermines the basic rationality that real science provides. Without that rationality—anything goes and it becomes perfectly acceptable to believe, say, that the coronavirus is a hoax.
In contrast to the Big Bang narrative, the narrative of universal evolution outlined here does make sense. To understand it, all you have to know is some basic processes of electromagnetism and gravity. And it thus supports the opposite premise—that if the universe makes sense, then it is possible to make sense of what is happening here on earth.
