Why I developed Singularity Acceleration Hypothesis

Universe Formation Home Page


Why is there something instead of nothing? Or stated another way, what caused the big bang? These have been questions of interest to me for about 60 years, and so far, all the answers I have seen have been somewhat unsatisfactory. I wanted the best scientific answer; and while some models give mathematically elegant descriptions of events, they describe processes that are unlikely to ever be verified. They are short on details about the cause of the Big Bang, and have ignored both applicable laws of relativity and clues of events in our universe that could have caused it.


Occam's razor (try the simplest solution first) should be applied to developing a model using relativity, quantum and mostly discovered parts and processes already known. With only a few gaps to discover, the singularity acceleration model of what caused the Big Bang is the closest hypothesis to being a viable theory of cause of big bangs and how universes are formed.


The singularity that formed our Big Bang has every feature one would expect to occur in a supermassive black hole singularity that came from an earlier universe. There is just one problem, and that is the matter of scale. If it were not for a daunting size discrepancy of at least thirteen orders of magnitude between the mass of the largest known black hole singularity and the mass of our universe, the concept of black hole singularity-causing universe formation might not have been considered impossible. However, this idea was generally dismissed without serious study, even though black hole singularities would otherwise be considered the perfect candidate as the cause of the Big Bang, the result of a singularity phase transition from another universe.


To the best of my knowledge no one else has ever published a process or model showing how the mass from the matter and energy in a galaxy cluster or even a super cluster complex is adequate to make a singularity massive enough to form a universe like ours. The singularity acceleration hypothesis uses only items that exist in our universe, and are plausible to have existed in a prior universe, and laws of contemporary physics to construct the model. Thus, this hypothesis presents the only mechanism to date with a plausible explanation of how a supermassive black hole singularity that formed in a single galaxy cluster complex in an older universe could have caused the Big Bang.


Most of the tenets of the Singularity Acceleration hypothesis are testable, probably more so than any other contemporary hypothesis of what happened before the Big Bang, although some of these tests may require technological advances.
