: : : on Art Bell Show this morning theoretical physicist from CUNY named Michio Kaku said there is now a theory on what happened prior to big bang.....he said the big bang came out of "nothing" and that there is a physicist who has done the mathematics to prove this....he said theoretically you could initiate a big bang in your basement however it would be the equivalent of an H bomb.....he compared the big bang to the bubbles that occur when you boil water.....he said these big bangs are going on all the time all over the universe

: : Hmm... the Big Bang coming from "nothing"? How could all of the matter in the Universe have come from "nothing"? How would get anything from "nothing"? Correct me if I am wrong, but that contradicts the definition of "nothing"!

: what is nothing??? : and how do you create something out of it? : and who says that are universe is big??? maby the "known" universe : would be an atom and maby it is the biggest thing : we dont know!! but now i am getting to far from the big bang!!! : well i dont know how and why but i certnly know that : there is 7 dimentions created by the big bang : and we are suposto know four witch are 1 2 3 dimentions : taht we all know and the and the fourth one would be the time : but we are missing 3 ... whats can they be? but it would fill : in with the missing mass of the universe?? well : any one want to add up i would apreciate

As far as I know, the simplest definition for "nothing" is an absence of matter. As for how "something" is created from "nothing", well I have no idea (sounds illogical). Last time I checked for a definition of the word "universe" I either got "everything" or "all matter" or something to that effect. By those definitions there really can't be anything outside the "Universe" because whatever is found out there, would just be part of it. I would also really appreciate anything that anybody has to say about "dimensions" because the whole concept of having different "dimensions" doesn't make any sense to me.
