What would happen? Without such consciousness, there is no point, no purpose to the universe. Comments . "But there is no evidence for the initial singularity as well." It’s my Universe and I need it now! (What follows is a bit more technical, but interesting nonetheless.) And many things in this universe are in eigenstates every once in a while simply because of the way they interact with other things which are, for all practical intents and purposes, classical. 6 years ago. Nothing matters. Now it is true that there is no such thing as a truly classical object: that even people, cats, cannonballs or planets are made of a large number of quantum particles. To them there is no universe. Well, a universe which doesn’t contain all things is hardly a universe, so we end up with the awesomely stunning conclusion that there is no universe! It is the story of the universe becoming conscious through us. So if the universe didn't exist, there would be nothing to make me out of, and no place to put me, AND I couldn't exist for very long because I need heat, light, physical space, and time to exist, not to mention oxygen, water, and motorcycles. My head hurts for thinking about it when im high. 1 1. In fact, the universe may have no beginning at all. In the new formulation, the universe was never a singularity, or an infinitely small and infinitely dense point of matter. Saito Hajime. Who's to say we aren't all in the matrix right now and the universe is actually the size of a planet. There is no “ought” in physics, only an “is.” There is no “ought” in biology either, no progressive direction to evolution (what is termed “orthogenesis”). So no, the existence of the universe does not depend on the presence of life. There is really a possible answer to this: "nothing" isn't a situation that ever happens, there is always the chance that a particle will pop into existence. The new study isn’t suggesting there was no Big Bang, Koberlein says. Made popular on: Sun, 11/15/2009 - 1:43pm. There was no god, no universe, no planets, no mass, space or anything. Just pure nothing. There is one Universe of non infinite mass floating through time like a surfboard on the ocean.
