Scientists have made an intriguing breakthrough by providing proof of the existence of a universe that predates our own. This discovery is rooted in the concept of Conformal Cyclic Cosmology (CCC), which posits that our universe undergoes multiple cycles of Big Bang events, rather than having a singular origin. Researchers have found remnants of previous universes in the form of electromagnetic radiation left behind by black holes.
According to Roger Penrose, a mathematical physicist from the University of Oxford and a co-author of the study, the leftover radiation represents the final remnants of black holes that have evaporated in previous aeons. Termed Hawking points in honor of the late Stephen Hawking, who theorized the existence of Hawking radiation emitted by black holes, these points are believed to be capable of traversing from one universe to another.
The evidence for these previous universes comes in the form of concentrated spots, known as B-modes, visible in the cosmic microwave background (CMB). Hawking points, concentrated by the conformal compression of the entire future of a black hole, are thought to manifest as rings of light in the CMB. While previous theories attributed these anomalies to gravitational waves or interstellar dust, Penrose and his team propose that their findings align with the concept of CCC and suggest that a Hawking point may have already been detected by the BICEP2 project, which aims to map the CMB.
Although the existence of such anomalous points challenges the prevailing cosmic inflation theory, it provides a thrilling response that supports conformal cyclic cosmology. This radiation, despite being emitted at extremely low temperatures, becomes highly concentrated due to conformal compression, resulting in a single point at the transition into our current aeon. By investigating the cosmic remnants of black holes, scientists have uncovered compelling evidence of a universe that predates our own, reshaping our understanding of the origins of our cosmos.
