The Big Bang

This is a pretty good explanation of the Theory of Inflation (Big Bang), for us non-scientists.

Look around the room you're in, and imagine how all the stable, inert objects are the cold remnants of that super-hot, super-dense soup of particles--way too chaotic for atoms to even form until about four-hundred-thousand years later (an amount of time that it's difficult for us to even imagine--twice as long as humans have existed.)

So that's proof of faster than light movement. Now we know it's possible.... just a matter of time until we're teleporting around willy nilly

My understanding is that space itself was expanding at that rate, not that something was traveling "through space"

that's why I said movement, not travel. it had to move if it covered a distance.... but if there was nothing to travel through, it couldnt have traveled. You might have to get outside the universe to move that quickly.

Does blowing up a balloon qualify as movement?

It moves right? But what is it moving in, if that's the analogy. If space expanded, what was displaced?

When I was a kid, my dad would ask us, "If the universe isn't infinite, what's at the end of it? If it's a big brick wall, what's on the other side?" Really good question, tbh. What did the early universe Inflate into? It's hard for us to imagine nothing.

Some of it moves not the part in/on your mouth so probably a bad analogy.
Maybe mento/coke in a balloon, everything's moving and that displaces air.
But the universe is displacing void, nothing.
We have trouble getting our head around infinite anything, no less nothing.
Well it has to end somewhere. Nope, forever and ever, amen.

We don't have the ability to observe something so large and so small at the same time. Space IS void. Or at least we thought so.

The empty space outside the universe is the same place my consciousness was before I was born.
