    Header: "Goodbye Big Bang, hello black hole? A new theory of the universe's creation"

    This is an alternative hypothesis of the creation of our universe. I found it in phys.org/news and found it very interesting. I've quoted some from the article, but you'd better read it with your own eyes:

    "Could the famed "Big Bang" theory need a revision? A group of theoretical physicists suppose the birth of the universe could have happened after a four-dimensional star collapsed into a black hole and ejected debris."

    "So what are the limitations of the Big Bang theory? The singularity is one of them."

    "Most cosmologists say the universe must have been expanding faster than the speed of light for this to happen, but Ashford says even that theory has problems."

    "Planck shows that inflation is happening, but doesn't show why the inflation is happening."

    "So basically, what the model says is when the 4-D star blows apart, the leftover material would create a 3-D brane surrounding a 3-D event horizon, and then expand."

    That begs the question, can a 4D star exist at all? I would think the hypothesis is un falsifiable and so not science but perhaps philosophy.

    Well, i don't think we can discover one in our universe. They exist in an intermediary space between ours and the one before.

    Crazy stuff? Well, it gives our universe a cause to get into existence, doesn't it?

    Just a thought, but they seem to be missing a dimension. Do they say how time fits into all this?

    n-dimensional stars, all the way down.
