Assuming the universe began in a “big bang,” or the explosion of a singularity containing all matter and energy that makes up the universe today, and all that matter is still moving outwards from the epicenter of the explosion, what happens when the dust settles? Does all matter fall back to the center of the universe and converge back to a single point? Does that point explode again, creating a new universe and starting the process over again? How many times will this cycle repeat? Perhaps more importantly, how many times did this happen before the current universe came to be? Is it possible that the universe is a never-ending cycle of expansions and contractions with no beginning and no end?
