What if we look as far in the other direction?

We claim to be seeing the origins of the known universe whenever we focus into the deep field region explored by Hubble back in the 1990s. As we refine our techniques and better understand the data, we are able to extract an amazing wealth of data about what looks like an early look at our universe. So, i am assuming that we are pointing the cameras in the direction of where we think the big bang originated.

But what if we look in the other direction? Logically, we should find a far more evolved perspective of our universe. We should see the burnout of galaxies, or nothing at all, if we are able to see the leading edge of the initial shockwave. The terminus of the universe.

However, i have a different theory. We will see pretty much the same thing in ANY direction. Why? Because the universe is INFINITE. There cannot be an initial point of origin in an infinite universe. No beginning, no end.

Supporting my theory that there was no BigBang is one simple inescapable fact: the center, as it looked the moment it happened, is no longer there. It cant be.

Our current position in the known universe, is among the expanding matter hurling away from the center. Think about an exploding grenade, in slow motion. As the grenade explodes, the force of the ignition sends the material violently outward, in all directions. The flash of light and energy travels fastest and furthest from the center, with sound following later as a shockwave, the way thunder follows lightning. And then, much later, the fiery mass of the grenade itself. Play the slow-motion video a few frames out, and stop. Somewhere in the explosive mass of chaos is our little planet. If we picked a point among the chaos, and looked back towards the original position of the grenade, we wouldn’t see much, its emptied out from the initial explosion. We might see some smoldering of the core. But that’s not the birth of the universe. It would be whatever is left of the core by the time the light reaches us, many eons later. How can we see the light from the center of the universe, if it travels faster than any mass, and would have past through this section of space, well before we got here?
