Life Before Us: Evidence for Cyclic Universe claimed by Nobel Prize winner

Is there life before us?

British mathematical physicist Roger Penrose claims that another universe existed before the Big Bang events, and evidence can be observed in black holes. 

The physicist based at the University of Oxford made the controversial and extraordinary claim after winning the Nobel Prize for Physics for proving that black holes are an inevitable result of Einstein’s general theory of relativity using unconventional mathematical methods, and therefore can exist.

His research, which he carried out 55 years ago, would have shocked Einstein, who claimed that black holes “do not exist in physical reality.” 

“We have a universe that expands and expands, and all mass decays away, and in this crazy theory of mine, that remote future becomes the Big Bang of another eon,” according to Penrose

Black holes hold evidence of previous life.

He derived his ideas from what he calls Hawking Points, named after the acclaimed theoretical physicist Stephen Hawking. These anomalous points are the remnants of the previous universe, which are also expulsions of energy transferred by black holes. Such a phenomenon survived at the end of the universe. Where it originated and now emanates radiation as they approach the end of their lifespan. Penrose further claimed that these points are proof of the universe’s ‘conformal cyclic cosmology’ theory. The theory suggests that the universe lives through a continuous life cycle, where the Big Bang indicated the end of one universe and marked the beginning of a new one. This cycle is called an ‘eon.’ 

“I claim that there is an observation of Hawking radiation,” Penrose noted, according to The Telegraph. “So our Big Bang began with something which was the distant future of a previous eon, and there would have been similar black holes evaporating away, via Hawking evaporation, and they would produce these points in the sky, that I call Hawking Points. 

“We are seeing them. These points are about eight times the diameter of the Moon and are slightly warmed up regions. There is pretty good evidence for at least six of these points.” 

The controversial claims do not come without criticisms.

However, Penrose’s idea met criticisms saying that the existence of Hawking radiation emanating from black holes is yet to be confirmed. Sir Roger then responded that black holes were once dismissed and only existed in mathematical theories, but now their existence is finally proven. 

“People were very skeptical at the time; it took a long time before black holes were accepted… their importance is, I think, only partially appreciated”, Penrose said, as reported by the BBC.
