Penrose's Universe (@ BNL 2/6/07)

Roger Penrose stopped by Brookhaven early this week, to discuss his views on the Big Bang...and before. While I'm still working through what he seems to be saying (that the universe somehow serves as the "inflationary" period for the universe which succeeds it...) I found his slides particularly evocative and managed to get a few photographs. Enjoy!

yes, this reminds me of the "heartbeat of the cosmos" concept I saw somewhere round the place where all the relevant constants eg flatness and other parameters are such as to make for an oscillating universe in which big crunch follows bang bang follows big crunch, etc--God's heartbeat if you will, with God = Everything That Is. Check it out: heartbeat of God
