What if the universe had no beginning? | Space

What if the universe had no beginning? | Space | GLOBAL TECHNOLOGY TODAY | Scoop.it
In the beginning, there was … well, maybe there was no beginning. Perhaps our universe has always existed — and a new theory of quantum gravity reveals how that could work."Reality has so many things that most people would associate with sci-fi or even fantasy," said Bruno Bento, a physicist who studies the nature of time at the University of Liverpool in the U.K.In his work, he employed a new theory of quantum gravity, called causal set theory, in which space and time are broken down into discrete chunks of space-time. At some level, there's a fundamental unit of space-time, according to this theory. Bento and his collaborators used this causal-set approach to explore the beginning of the universe. They found that it's possible that the universe had no beginning — that it has always existed into the infinite past and only recently evolved into what we call the Big Bang.Related: Big Bang to civilization: 10 amazing origin events

"Outages are increasing in volume and can often point towards a cyber-attack, but this can add to the confusion early on when we are diagnosing the causes," said Jake More, expert at cybersecurity and antivirus company ESET, in an emailed comment to TechRadar. "As we saw with Fastly in the summer, web-blackouts are more often originate from undiscovered software bug or even human error."
Al Cannistra's insight:

TOO EASY to use certain social media for registration and sign in to external apps - yet what happens if the primary vehicle is down? I'll admit to having a FEW - very few registrations using the scheme - most are registered and logged into with an email and variable password. Not so much influenced by the occasional calamity, more by wanting to mitigate the following of every move I make! Just MO.....
