Q&A: What was outside space if space was a tiny point when the Big Bang originated?

Question by Prince Charm: What was outside space if space was a tiny point when the Big Bang originated?
It is said that space itself expanded not just things like planets, stars and so on. What was outside space before space expanded and will space continue to expand forever. If it does expand forever is there any limit where the expansion might stop. For ex there is a limit to which a balloon can expand before it pops. Does space have the capacity to expand forever.

Best answer:

There is no outside – it doesn’t exist.

    will probably expand forever, and as it was the universe when it was a tiny point… there wasn’t anything, nothing, not even nothing as nothing is something.

    If the universe is infinite, then it never did have a size per se except locally, or the limit to which we can see. It’s like saying how many infinite points are there in an inch compared to a foot. There is nothing outside the universe because it composes everything in space and time. Basically, nothing existed outside of the universe, because it didn’t exist. That’s the general explanation. There is also the brane concept, however, that says the universe is just one set of dimensions expanding into a larger set of dimensions. They are like membranes of multi dimensions, with branes and bulks. The metaphors get a little complicated. But basically, there is no real explanation of what the universe is expanding into. All we know is that it is expanding.

    There *is* no “outside space”. The universe is a self-contained phenomenon.

    The “tiny point” you refer to was the universe at Time Zero, when it possessed a spatial size of zero. The Big Bang Theory describes the universe’s expansion from this point, called a singularity.

    We don’t currently know what the ultimate fate of the universe will be. The universe has a temporal origin point, and there’s no reason to think that it won’t have a temporal terminal point as well. Whether this terminal point will occur at the completion of the collapse of the universe back into a singularity or not is something we just don’t know yet.

    “…What was outside space before space expanded…”
    Absolutely and totally uknown..! No matter what others might say, that’s the *only* correct answer to that question. There are a number of ideas about pre-Big Bang, but not one of them can be proven at this time.

    “…will space continue to expand forever…”
    Another question with no definite answer. At this time it’s generally thought that the universe will expand indefinitely until all the things *in* the universe have decayed totally away and nothing is left but absolute darkness and empty space. Another thought is that the universe *might* rip completely apart due to the increased expansion rate that was discovered several years ago, kind of like the popping balloon you mention. However, no one is certain what the final fate of our universe will be.

    The universe is composed of matter, energy, space, and time. Hence if there is no universe there can be no space. Space can be made to expand for as long as the universe is expanding. Everything physical is ultimately finite and therefore the physical universe must be finite, and this means that it will end at some point in the future.

    “Uniontera poem is to ferrari what big bang theory is to porsche.”

    Uniontera number 6-1, hope it helps. This is your so-called 4 dimension.

    Hope it hleps.

    Existence is the time expressed by light itself. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AN1jTwHUC7E

    1. Arrow A is the laser work. (Same time work)
    2. Arrow B is the reason of gravity. (also, Higgs boson individually / Different time work)
    3. The rose line is the beginning light. (result from Bible)
    4. The existence of different time. (result from relativity of light)
    5. 2 dimension is not a space. (result from 2-axis, math)
    6. Universe came from nothing. (result from No.5 / cf. Playing with bubbles)
    6-1. A barrier[posititon] exist between the inner and outer bubbles. But universe do not have that barrier. (Cause of Inertia / Reason of Sun / Position of Antimatter / cf. Expansion)
    6-2. Nothing is not a no existence. No existence is a zero dimension. There is two zero dimension. One has a position. The other doesn’t have a position. These different positions were connected by something. That “something” is not a what but a way. (Cause of Light)
    7. Progress / Event / Probability is a time. (This is my trinity.)
    8. Wave-particle duality of light, creation & evolution, uncertainty principle, etc. (result from No.7)
    9. Coalescing of different time. (Cause of Rotation & Spin / Equator has plenty of time.)
    10. Your so-called black hole is a wholly condensed time. (cf. Kerr spacetime)
    11. The reason of “your so-called magnetic field”. (result from step3 and 4)
    11-1. The reason of “your so-called dark matter”. (result from step3 to 4 / Energy-Mass duality / cf. Dark energy “step4 to 3”)
    12. The reason of “your so-called electric field”. (result from the crack of time / Same time’s crack is a different time’s connection. / Cause of Static electricity)
    13. Your so-called “space” is a crack of time. (result from No.12 / Cause of Lightning)
    14. Boundary is a crack of space. (result from No.13 / Same space’s crack is a different time’s contact. / Cause of Superfluid / cf. Fractal)
    15. Boundary is nothing. Your so-called hole is a boundary itself. Also, nothing is K=0 temperature. (result from No.14 / cf. Calabi-Yau, Hilbert space)
    16. This is a wall of your so-called fire. (result from No.15) – copyright ⓒ uniontera

    Our nonsense has come from one time. Uniontera is a key.

    English is not my first language, sorry!

    If it is difficult to understand, just remember & enjoy “Hand touching everything is a time”. This is the only one result of uniontera.
