R8 my cosmological theory.
Our cosmos is a vast ball of spacetime. It's continually expanding and creating more of itself but will it continue to expand forever?
Eventually the stars will die and all matter will will decay into radiation. As the cosmos expands more and more each photon will become isolated in its own lightcone.
Maybe spacetime itself will fade away into nothingness like ripples in a pond.
Maybe our spacetime is an expanding disturbance in some kind of primal medium. Microscopic quantum fluctuations in this medium continually give rise to expanding spacetimes that eventually fade ou
That raises the question of why there are disturbances that form what we perceive as universes. In similar theories that our universe is but one of many in an even larger scheme, many people like to shove their conception of God into all that empty hyperspace between clusters of spacetime. It's the classic "God of the gaps" routine, which is looked down upon not necessarily because the hypothesis is ridiculous, but because people like to jam their preconceptions about what God is "supposed to be" into a place that cannot prove or disprove them.
