Descrizione

Is this author crazy or not?  Daniel F Celovsky asks that you help him make that determination.

 

The exploration into our Universe has many theories - but few actually add to the dimensions our Universe would require to even form and exist.  Surely there is more involved than merely Time, Space, Matter and Energy!

 

In this break-out examination that explores our very existence; Celovsky opens the doors for inquisitive experience to its readers.  He brings you along for the ride - in an easy-going format - while engaging and entertaining you every step of the way.

 

The journey of this book does not just start from some random point of thought.  It embarks with Albert Einstein's work in his pursuit of the Theory of Everything that consumed this genius for over three-decades.  On its way, it combines Einstein's work with the theories behind life's evolution outlined by Charles Darwin. The combination is magical.

 

A hero ant, an acutely sensitive fruit fly, a Cosmic Tom Hanks, an infinite supply of coffee, and the control of chaos in stock car racing all form a unique set of characters and life experiences that explain our Universe.

 

Maybe Celovsky is nuts.  Maybe not.  Either way, you are guaranteed to come away with a new more vibrant outlook about your surrounding environment as well as your reason for existing in it.

Informazioni sull'autore

I am a father and grandfather living in Eastern Ontario Canada near the northern shore of Lake Ontario. I consider myself to be a completely free-thinker. Placing thoughts and ideas into strict ‘categories’ of subject matter is only done by human beings to categorize thoughts of human beings. I consider such bounds to be restrictive and limiting. They stifle the opportunities for creativity. By rejecting bounds and limitations of others I leave myself the one thing that allows for unbounded creative thought: The freedom to think without bounds. There are no limits to that freedom. As a result, I consider myself to be able to completely think outside the box (any box). I consider myself to be a scientist and an artist. I have the freedom to be both, either or neither. And I can jump around from one to another at will. I do have degrees including a B.Sc. (Trent University) and an M.B.A. (University of Saskatchewan) but feel that I did not really benefit from them. I am mostly self-taught – finding myself challenged and interested in certain subject matters and then exploring those with a keen and focused interest. When intrigued by something, I find myself to be a very fast learner. And I believe knowledge is obtained through understanding and comprehension; not through memorization. I have worked in various roles across multiple industries and lived in several Canadian provinces and US states. I have met lots of wonderful and inspiring people. I have found several that inspire me for key reasons. I have made a few very good friends and relish their company. I have met lots of not-so-wonderful people and try to avoid them. I have found that I have aged very well. I have lived most of my life trying to conform to society and the wishes of others. Only as I reached my fifties, did I realize that it is wiser to pursue what you enjoy and inspires you. Entering my sixties, it becomes obvious that wisdom is both real and liberating. “Tomorrow is the most important thing in life. Comes into us at midnight very clean. It is perfect when it arrives and it puts itself in our hands. It hopes we’ve learned something from yesterday.” – John Wayne For me, every day is an opportunity to discover something new.

This Is What Caused The Big Bang - Daniel Celovsky

MYTH

INTRODUCTION

This is What Caused the Big Bang.

That is the title of this book – and you can skip straight to the proposed answer to this event by flipping to Chapter 16. 

But I do not recommend it.  You would miss out on all the fun!

Understanding this event is derived from a sequential step-by-step examination behind the operation of our Universe. It will explain considerably more than this sole event of the Big Bang. 

The content of this book will touch on a lot of underlying observations and possible conclusions, including:

That Albert Einstein gave us a path to discovery which we have simply missed;

That the basic operating ingredients of our Universe extend beyond the four we commonly perceive (Space, Time, Matter and Energy); and

That there is a delicate yet powerful balance of the ingredients involved that permit a sustainable operating Universe to evolve and exist over what would otherwise be complete chaos.

My theory is that infinite-motivation is a physical universal force within the operation of our Universe.  Note the use of the word theory because it is not necessarily a fact but is only a potential fact.  This book is presented to outline my theory, explain the logic behind its development, and to provide as much supporting background behind it as possible so it can be refuted. 

I am unable to refute it on my own.  So, that is the reason I am writing this book: to call on your assistance to refute my theory. 

In order to equip you with the tools to refute me, I need to give you as much information as possible as clearly as possible.  That is why this book is more than just the presentation of Chapter 16.  This did not just fall from the sky and into my lap.  It took me years and thousands upon thousands of hours over almost a decade to come to the conclusion presented in Chapter 16.  I need to provide the clues and observed connections that created the concluding theory itself.

This book presents a journey leading to those conclusions.  This journey provides touch-points along the way that explain how our Universe operates and provides us with the home we exist in.  My joy and complete awe of our Universe is not derived from the destination – but for those observations that developed along the path of the journey itself. 

To be honest – the destination point of explaining what caused the Big Bang does not mean much to me.  I really do not care much about what caused the Big Bang.  I care about how our Universe – that resulted from the Big Bang – works and allows for us to exist in it.  That has more value in providing an explanation to me of why I exist at all. 

The journey starts from the point of understanding how we think.  We question everything.  But in doing that, we do not simply discard everything – we question to validate what is valid but also to find the roadblocks that have prevented us from getting to the bigger answers to why our Universe exists and why we are here.  That allows us to remove and break through those roadblocks while retaining the knowledge science has given us over centuries of time. 

That brings us to the format I have selected to present this journey into explaining our Universe.  The presentation form of my thoughts and theories is to avoid jargon or terminology that would limit open and free thought-sharing by anyone, whether or not they possess a formal education in the subject matter.  Any one of us sooner or later – and in many cases repeatedly – has undoubtedly asked the same questions I have sought to answer:  How does the Universe work?  How did it come about?  Why are we here?

You do not need to have a formal degree to have these thoughts.  You only need to have curiosity. As such, nobody should be excluded from this discussion by limits applied through convention, academic discipline or restrictive jargon and terminology.  The only pre-requisite abilities required to ask those questions are curiosity and possessing an open-mind.  That should qualify mostly anyone and exclude very few.

The Universe is our home.  It is a complete, intricate and complex system. In order for it to be as it is, it requires a considerable myriad of ingredients that all work in unison to create the liveable and habitable home we experience. 

This book is about how the Universe works.  It is about what makes it tick.  It is about defining the building blocks that allows it to exist – and allows us to exist in it. 

It requires every foundational building block in it to exist.  There is a dependency and inter-dependency to all of it.  Remove any element and it collapses and fails to exist.

This book seeks to explain it. 

To set your expectations, this effort will not explain it all.  It is simply too complex for us to define a complete answer.  But we will move further down that path to explaining it all.  It will lay the foundation so that further exploration and discovery can be conducted to deliver a clearer picture of it.  As such, my goal is not to fully define it; but to move us further down the path to defining it. 

In this book, I am going to make the case that Infinity is one of the key building blocks of our Universe – as critical to our existence and the Universe’s very being as is Space, Time, Matter and Energy.  It is so critical that if you were to remove Infinity the Universe would fail to be.  In fact, without Infinity we would not be here because we would not have a Universe to call home.

By simply including Infinity – several other conclusions are open to us just by its very inclusion.  We can start to recognize the potential inclusion of additional foundational building blocks, such as the force of motivation, and even effective governing limits (such as the universal speed limit of the Speed of Light). 

Along the journey into thought, I dug deep.  I searched for the ‘rules’ behind the path to theoretical discovery.  There are some clear definitions which I will review across domains of thought including philosophy, science, and theology.  There are other definitions that are relevant to this effort.  What is fiction as opposed to non-fiction?  Is art really different than science? 

I will need to explain the key assumptions I have relied on to develop my conclusions.  I will need to explain some key discoveries I leveraged in order to support those conclusions.  I will need to explain the ‘connections’ that showed up and continued me down this journey.  And I will need to review some of the impacts that my concluding theories predict. 

We will also need to make some new definitions.  It makes some sense that when going down a path not travelled, that we inevitably make discoveries that have not been previously discovered or defined.  In those cases (and there are a few) we will need to give them names.  As such, I will propose some naming definitions to place semantic descriptors on discoveries that appear novel, new and unique.

I searched extensively over the years for answers that would refute my thoughts and theories.  There were instances where answers demonstrated a wrong path.  Oddly, those wrong turns were relatively minor, and upon making the needed adjustments, I corrected course and continued.

Along the way, I found adjoining discoveries.  I found that not only are Space and Time Infinite, but that Matter and Energy can be proven to be Infinite.  That every foundational building block of the Universe works with each other foundational building block, creating an overall harmony within the Universe.  This results in outcomes which include life itself. 

On this journey to discovery, I found a cohort that saw and felt an explainable Universe.  I met Albert Einstein and have come to completely adore this man for not only his successes, but more so for his big failure in his pursuit to explain the Theory of Everything.  I take inspiration not only from his work but from his thoughts, attitudes and motivations that drove him to his work.  I will explain this in greater detail because it coincides with – and affirms – my own journey to explaining the Universe.

I discovered limitations that we ourselves – as human beings – have placed on ourselves that have resulted in limiting our own thoughts and that by discarding those limitations, exciting and amazing doors to knowledge open up to us.

An endless string of discoveries flowed to me.  Seeing and experiencing so many connections demonstrated the complexity of the Universe yet also its very simplicity.  The Universe is a puzzle but it is a solvable puzzle.  The Universe is actually bound by rules ... and once you read the rule book ... the game of existence makes a lot more sense and is actually an enjoyable game in itself. 

There is a big outcome to this and it will affect you and me both.  You will experience and understand my conclusions to a level of them being at least potentially viable – which will result in your being equipped to either refute them or to share in the validity of them.  Either way, they will open the doors for you to view your Universe in new vibrant and exciting ways. 

Alternatively, you may consider my thoughts to be completely nuts.  In that case, you will have found the path to refuting me; meaning you will have found the path to liberate me from the mental quagmire that has been consuming me.

Let me explain your potential contribution by sharing a recurring but incomplete visual dream I have been having for years now.  It’s a strange one ... and a somewhat frightening one from where I sit.  I am looking out the window of my front door.  A white van pulls up to the curb.  Three people get out.  They are all in white lab coats.  And they have clipboards.  They start walking down the lane towards me.  Their coats have logos on them.  The dream always ends with them never being close enough for me to make those logos out.  Are they the NASA logo – or are they the logo from the local loony bin?  I can never make those logos out. 

I have taken it upon myself to write this book because that recurring and mysterious dream has not given me any choice.  I need you to determine if I am sane or insane.  Which logo is it?  And this has a real twist – because I do not really care which logo it is.  It is not important to me which one it is; I can live with either of them.  I just need to know which one it is.

Oddly, I have no idea what the clipboards are for.  But they have them.

So for you to complete this dream, I need to equip you with as many tools as possible. 

I am not limiting this to ‘experts’ or academics in the subject matter.  If you are reading this and expecting a science book, this may disappoint you.  I have read quite a few science books in the past several years – they can get quite boring and technical.  But they have a glaring consistency to them. 

They seem to follow a similar path –three-quarters of their content tends to explain and give credit to the historical findings of scientists over the years and then they present their conclusion in the remaining quarter.  That seems to be the convention for a science book.  But I have chosen to not follow that conventional structure.  I am going to present conclusions and theories every step of the way.

The typical science book spends considerable time outlining – and repeating – the same developmental history behind the evolution of the scientific theories we have today.  For the most part, I will acknowledge historical findings where they apply, but I will not dwell on them where they consume 75% of the content of this book.  Let’s make a blanket acknowledgement to cover this off right now so we can focus on our goals for the content of this book.

I make the following statement:  I acknowledge the work, findings and conclusions of scientists that have invaluably provided us with a foundation of scientific knowledge.  Copernicus, Galileo, Newton, Schrödinger, Darwin, Planck, Faraday, Hubble, and all the others.  I acknowledge them all, with thanks and respect. 

If you wish you can look up their works (and I encourage you to do so) for the knowledge they have given us.  But, suffice to say that in making this blanket acknowledgement, I consider the first 75% of a science book’s requirements to be covered. 

In the bigger picture, I am not holding an objective for this to be a science book.  I am not even convinced that it is a science book.  I do not want to restrict anyone with an enquiring mind to be excluded (or bored) from what this book has to convey and offer by conforming to conventional categories for its content. 

I am lucky by not being formally schooled in science, philosophy or theology.  As a result, I am not constrained by their strict disciplines, rules or conventions.  That means that you –as the reader – are not required to be knowledgeable in the subject matter.  The only requirement you need is being able to think and have an exploring mind.  By the way, other great thinkers in the related subject matter have similar non-academic backgrounds.  In fact, they found formal academic teachings boring and even disdainfully limiting.  I completely share that view.  I am referencing both Albert Einstein and Charles Darwin specifically. 

As you join me on this journey of discovery about our Universe, I hope to equip you with as much of my thought process as possible so that it will be enjoyable and – hopefully – even inspiring.

And – in Chapter 16 – I will demonstrate how Infinity, Motivation and Universal Limits contributed their roles in what caused the Big Bang.  After all, I do have to justify the title selected for this book!

We will completely ignore bounds and limitations in our thought process.  That means we will completely have freedom of thought without any restrictions.  We will cross over many disciplines without concern for their inherent categorization.  We will obtain full clarity by circumventing around the strict definitions placed on us by the academic disciplines that include biology, chemistry, geology, physics, anthropology, psychology, sociology, and philosophy and more.  Our existence in the Universe requires it all – without the restrictions of human-derived categories used to differentiate them from each other.  Everything is everything.

The Universe itself is the environment that created us, and it is the environment that allows us to exist now and in the future.  This book is about gaining an understanding of our environment – which gives us our place in the Universe.  Only by understanding our Universe can we fully understand ourselves. 

When it gets right down to it; the questions we are pursuing answers to are the biggest ones we have ever asked.  How does The Universe work?  How did it come about?  Why are we here?

ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS & DEDICATION

I want to apologize to the science community.  In a world facing Global Heating and its ultimate outcome of the extinction of life, I spent a solid decade between 2000 and 2010 blaming the science community for not being vocal enough in sounding the alarm.  By 2010, I realized that my blame was misguided. 

I have come to realize that the scientists have done their jobs and sounded the alarm.  They repeatedly sounded it to political, economic and industry leaders.  It is those very political, economic and industry leaders that are tasked to act on the facts presented by the science community that are not listening and acting on those very alarms.  That is where the blame needs to squarely go.

There is also a very significant cost that has not been mentioned often enough.  That the distraction presented by the Climate Crisis has cost us all in the loss of discovery.  It is an opportunity cost we are all paying both as human societies as well as individually.  When the scientists are distracted and re-directed from their focus on what they were trained to do, we all lose by the discoveries that are not being discovered.  We all lose by the knowledge potential we do not realize.

I recently read a book called On the Beach by Nevil Shute.  It provides us with some clear-cut parallels with the current Climate Crisis we are all experiencing.  Written back in 1957, it presents the scenario where the leaders of the human species managed to destroy the planet through a nuclear war.  While that war took place in the Northern Hemisphere, it allowed people in the Southern Hemisphere to continue life with the full knowledge that the radiation fallout would reach – and kill them – within the year.  The book follows the experiences of several individuals as to how they chose to live the remaining terms of their lives with the knowledge of the inevitable end looming ever closer during that year.  The comparison to our evolving path to climate-driven extinction is very eerie. 

I reference this book because it demonstrates that the individuals in the story actually elected to pursue their lives as they had planned for themselves – even though their destinies were suddenly pre-determined.  To elaborate, if there is one wish I could convey to the science community it is this:  You have done your part.  You are not to blame for the inaction of our political, economic and industry leaders.  In essence, you are completely absolved.  It is those leaders that are to blame.  You should be free to pursue your dreams and aspirations.  I wish that for all of you and I dedicate this book to every one of you.

I also want to extend my personal thanks to Kato Wake for getting this into print and David Allen for the artwork contributions and his persistence in pushing me to complete this.  I want to thank my partner, Jen Ackerman, for the moral support and input, and the occasional disputes along the way that served to develop clarity when needed.

I further wish to recognize my inspirational heroes for their unique and important contributions to not only my thoughts but for their impacts on my life.  Without their impressions on me, this book would have been considerably more difficult to compile.  My heroes and their inspirational focus (in no set order):

John Wayne – for the morality

Albert Einstein – for the fearlessness

Charles Darwin – for the courage

Neil DeGrasse-Tyson – for the clarity

George Carlin – for the confirmation

Richard Dawkins – for the thoughts

Bob Dylan – for the joy

Steve Jobs – for the style

Greta Thunberg – for the hope

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez – for the future

Elon Musk – for the balls

I will reference them all in this book.

And thank you for taking the time to consider my thoughts and having an open mind. 

You will need it.

PART ONE

PRE-FLIGHT

CHAPTER ONE

LAYING SOME GROUNDWORK

The purpose behind this book is to focus on defining the Universe.  Essentially, it is to explain everything.  What is our Universe?  How did it come about?  Why are we here?

These are undoubtedly the biggest questions we can contrive.  And – to set our expectations – I do not have the answers to it all.  But, I do have some thoughts and propositions that move us closer to those answers.  I believe there is a structure to the Universe and it is ultimately explainable because the answers are actually right in front of us.  I have discovered several structural components that could explain at least partial answers to these questions – and those could lead to further discoveries. 

My discoveries could be valid – and they could also be invalid.  But, I cannot invalidate them on my own so they remain standing as far as I can contemplate to myself at least until they are refuted.

With a goal of trying to define what makes our Universe tick, we have one clear advantage in this pursuit to answer these big questions:  The Universe already exists.  We do not have to undertake a painful process of finding the right way to create a Universe.  We do not have to conduct a lot of trial-and-error efforts.  The Universe is already here – all we have to do is to figure out how it got here.  We are actually working with a complete result.

Since the Universe is here and right in front of us, this also means that everything required to create a Universe is already here.  The inventory of all its components and required ingredients is in front of us just waiting for us to see it.  How all those ingredients interact with each other is also right in front of us.  We just have to look, see, and recognize it.
