The Conceptual Fallacy at the Heart of Big Bang Cosmology

Authors: Anton Biermans

As big bang cosmology conceives of the universe as an object which has certain properties and at any time is in some particular state as a whole, this raises the question relative to what it can have those properties and be in that state if by definition there is nothing outside of it. If when there would only be a single electrically charged particle in the universe, it cannot express its charge in interactions, then it cannot be charged itself, so charge -any property- must be something which lives within particle interactions, so in a universe which creates itself out of nothing, particles, particle properties must be as much the cause as the effect of their interactions. If an object only can be said to exist, to have a property if it can express that property in interactions with something else, then in speaking about the properties and state of the universe we state that there is something outside of it relative to which it exists, with which it interacts, to which it owes its properties: that it has been created by some outside intervention. If conservation laws imply that the universe cannot have properties, be in some particular state as a whole as ‘seen’ from the outside, then it also cannot have particular properties, be in any particular state as a whole as seen from within, then time cannot be observed to pass at the same pace everywhere, the universe live in a time continuum not of its own making. If when particles are cause and effect of their interactions, their communication is instant –not over any space distance but over any spacetime distance– then the speed of light, while obviously a limit to the velocity of objects, doesn’t refer to the motion of light but to a property of spacetime.
