Is it possible that the universe began with no initial mass at all?

The materialist believes that everything which exist is particles, matter, atoms, electron, small billiard balls which interact with each other … and nothing else. They believe in a deterministic universe, where free will is a illusion, consciousness is only an epiphenomena of brain chemistry, nonlocality is a mathematical failure to explain physical reality because of …

Zero-Point Energy

Zero-point energy is the lowest possible energy that a quantum mechanical physical system may have; it is the energy of its ground state. All quantum mechanical systems undergo fluctuations even in their ground state and have an associated zero-point energy, a consequence of their wave-like nature. The uncertainty principle requires every physical system to have …

Action at a distance

In physics, action at a distance is the interaction of two objects which are separated in space with no known mediator of the interaction. This term was used most often in the context of early theories of gravity and electromagnetism to describe how an object responds to the influence of distant massive or charged bodies. …

Retrocausality

Retrocausality (also called retro-causation, retro-chronal causation, backward causation, and similar terms) is any of several hypothetical phenomena or processes that reverse causality, allowing an effect to occur before its cause. Retrocausality is primarily a thought experiment in philosophy of science based on elements of physics, addressing the question: Can the future affect the present, and …
