Ah yes! Cosmos

what's it, but

churning of That!

owing to which

changing! yet no

all's this 'n that!

"Our science - Greek science - is based on objectification... But I do believe that this is precisely the point where our present way of thinking does need to be amended, perhaps by a bit of blood transfusion from Eastern thought." ~Erwin Schrà dinger[Nobel prize in Physics]

From a metaphysical point of view, the cosmic expansion and the dissolution of it is but a happening un-happening! And therefore, this creation-expansion-dissolution is a nothing within the "no thing".

Confusing, is not it? So, let us simplify this cosmic tinkering, and this confounding thing called cosmic existence. And ask ourselves, "What is the Cosmos?"

The Oxford University dictionary description of it as "the universe seen as well-ordered whole". The Cambridge University dictionary describes the cosmos as "the universe considered as a system with an order and pattern."

Assuming it is so, one may ask the following about the cosmos:

  • how is it and why is so, as it is?
  • Why does it exist? Who created it?
  • Does it expanding, die? What does it expand into?
  • And after this dissolution, is there a rebirth, another creation?
  • Or is it endless? Alternatively, has it always existed, and never dies?

In short, the question arises as to what the hell is this universe that some call the cosmos or this world, taken as a whole.

First of all, the idea of most self-styled, all-knowing pundits, especially of some theoretical physicists, that the cosmos is approximately 13.8 billion years old, and is born of a Big Bang, is at best a conjecture.

The Nobel prize-winning physicist Hannes Alfven puts the vexed controversy at rest, by outing it on public record:

"I was there when Abbe Georges Lemaà tre first proposed this [Big Bang] theory... There is no rational reason to doubt that the universe has existed indefinitely, for an infinite time... It is only myth that attempts to say how the universe came to be, either four thousand or twenty billion years ago."
