Our mirror universe where time runs backwards…

In a new model of the Big Bang, scientists produced two universes: One a mirror of the other. In one universe, time appears to run forwards. In the other, time runs backwards…

 

In a mirror universe, from our perspective, time may run backwards from the Big Bang.

Big Bang May Have Created a Mirror Universe Where Time Runs Backwards

 

Posted by Tim De Chant (Nova Next)

 

“Why does time seem to move forward? It’s a riddle that’s puzzled physicists for well over a century, and they’ve come up with numerous theories to explain time’s arrow. The latest, though, suggests that while time moves forward in our universe, it may run backwards in another, mirror universe that was created on the “other side” of the Big Bang.

 

Two leading theories propose to explain the direction of time by way of the relatively uniform conditions of the Big Bang. At the very start, what is now the universe was homogeneously hot, so much so that matter didn’t really exist. It was all just a superheated soup. But as the universe expanded and cooled, stars, galaxies, planets, and other celestial bodies formed, birthing the universe’s irregular structure and raising its entropy…”

As if the house itself were a grave…

Or perhaps these houses are very much alive as secret histories, waiting to be read?

 

(The following is one of the most intriguing introductions to a new novel that we have seen…)

 

Man Explores Abandoned Untouched Homes In Europe

 

“Author Ransom Riggs wanted to make sure the setting for his upcoming novel was true to life, so he travelled to Europe to find the kind of houses that were described in the pages of his book. When he stepped into these abandoned homes, he discovered something he never expected to see. Some of these homes, empty for decades, were completely undisturbed. If not for the thick dust coating everything, it’d be as if they were still lived in. Trinkets from a time long past littered the inside.

 

Riggs teamed up with urban explorer/photographer Martino Zegwaard to photograph and document the inside of these homes. His intention was to show that these homes aren’t rotting wastes of space, they’re visual histories of the people who lived there…”
