In the Pages | Cosmic Fusion Cycle
Although a number of books take the Big Bang to task both observationally and theoretically, what they tend to overlook is that for the past sixty years it has been the best, albeit incomplete, explanation of the large-scale universe. The Big Bang is one of the few cosmologies to even address the origin of the universe. It tells us it came from a primordial cataclysm, it just doesnít tell us why. Yet if someone asks a cosmologist where the universe came from, the immediate answer is ďan inconceivably energetic expansion about 13.7 billion years ago.Ē
The universe is not 13.7 billion years old. In fact, it canít be ascribed an age as it was never born. Our universe is eternal and infinite and constitutes the full extent of reality - it is the only one we have and the only one possible. It is not evolving nor is it growing older and in danger of withering away. As such, our eternal and infinite universe maintains a perfect state of equilibrium. In Null Cosmology, this process is called the cosmic fusion cycle.
The cosmic fusion cycle is the balance between hydrogen and compound nuclei. The universe can be in a stable equilibrium if and only if each and every energy form within it maintains a constant universal density. This requires cosmic mechanisms that create and destroy all energy forms at equal rates.
Stars have been burning hydrogen forever and require an endless, renewable supply. The amount of energy in the universe does not change over time, so the only possible source of new hydrogen fuel is the nuclei formed during fusion. All forms of matter are recyclable. This requires reversibility in any formative process. The cosmic fusion cycle begins with the burning of hydrogen, resulting in two byproducts: compound nuclei (heavy elements) and luminous energy (light). In order to complete the cycle, the light released by the fusion of protons must eventually be used to break them apart, creating new hydrogen - the fuel of the universe. This is the cosmic fusion cycle, and it requires the galactic structure we observe, from the banding of spiral galaxies to the massive black holes in their cores.
