Quantum cosmology is an attempt in modern physics to formulate a complete and general theory of the Universe based on quantum principles.
This approach seeks to answer many unanswered questions of modern classical physical cosmological science, especially those dealing with the earliest periods of the universe. Theories based on such theories as quantum mechanics and Albert Einstein’s relativity are currently being tested to test predictions of a cosmos with several parallel universes. Quantum cosmologists also hope that their theories can be tested against observations of cosmic rays and X-rays.
The ideas behind quantum cosmology are not new.
Concerning its accuracy, however, recent tests indicate that there are a number of problems with the model. These problems are mostly to do with the assumptions made in the models and calculations of quantum mechanics. Quantumists have developed two models to explain the origin of the laws of cause and effect in science. One is the quantum super gravity model which postulates that the fabric of the universe consists of energy levels that are extremely smooth; thus the concept of dark matter which has been a mystery so far.
The other model is quantum gravity or Loop Quantum Cosmology.
In this approach, the universe is thought to consist of numerous parallel loops that lead to a variety of different regions in the Universe. These loops or spacetrioles serve as pathways for the energy levels to flow. The entire process is similar to a roller coaster ride. When a traveler sits in one of these, they feel as though they are traveling through a tunnel or a long and narrow spiral which is connected to another portion of this spiral which is much further back.
Quantum cosmology bears a resemblance to that of general relativity or quantum mechanics.
Though the two theories are not exactly the same, their main theories are similar. Quantum theory postulates that space and time are in a state of constant flux and movement which cannot be predicted by general relativity. Thus our present world and all of our experiences are governed by it. In addition, it also posits the idea that gravity is a component of our universe which is governed by a set of constant natural laws.
Quantum cosmology proposes that the irregularities or “holes” in space-time are the seeds of all of our future existence.
It also posits that our sun is nothing but a super seed of a much larger universe which is governed by the same laws. This universe might also be a “paradise” where all of our past lives can be accounted for. This means that if we have lived in other universes before this one, we may still be able to travel back in time and learn about our previous lives using instruments such as radar or lasers.
Quantum theory is a complex field of study that is only beginning to be understood fully.
It is based upon a number of assumptions which are necessary in order to make it work. The first assumption is that the entire universe consists of energy which is in a constant state of flux. This assumption also implies that our brains act as sensors of this energy, and that we are constantly sending and receiving information in response. This is referred to as a “branching” assumption because it posits a cause-and-effect relationship between our brains and the entire universe.
Another assumption underlying Quantum cosmology is that our minds and bodies are completely contained in a continuous fluid.
In other words, everything is “part” of a unified whole. This theory is referred to as “branching” because it assumes that our entire universe consists of a continuous fluid in which our minds, bodies, and space time continuum exists. The confusion most people have regarding this assumption is that if it is true, then it follows that the entire universe has a boundary beyond which there is no passage. Although this assumption is not at all wrong, it leads to many difficulties in determining the boundary of space time and the mind.
Quantum cosmology leads into another major assumption: all anomalies in the present universe are caused by man-made interference with the operations of the rest of the universe.
This leads to two possible conclusions, the first being that we live in a universe that contains multiple “loops” or parallel universes in which we observe our own reality. The second possibility is that we live in an unchanging universe that was designed, in its entirety, for us to observe it. Theists and scientists agree that there are no abnormalities in the present universe and that each individual exists within a consistent and uniform background of the cosmos. The former view is referred to as “classical” and the latter is called “loop” cosmologists.
