There was a big bang in the beginning. It is regarded as the beginning of the emergence of space, time and matter as early as the birth of our universe, approximately 13.8 billion years ago. But what if the Big Bang was not only the beginning of our universe, but a second, mirrored twin universe with exactly opposite properties?
Which science fiction series do you like star trek And dark Plays thematically over a long period of time also served as a source of inspiration for researchers. A scientific team from the Perimeter Institute for Theoretical Physics in Ontario, Canada, has taken this idea and developed a new theory about the mirror universe. Theoretical physicists and astrophysicists published their results in early 2018 in the journal American Physical Society, Now they deliver on the platform arXiv New, powerful arguments to support his theory.

Using the calculations, the research team determined what would happen if the generally prevailing symmetry rules for particles and forces were extended to the universe as a whole. this so called CPT Symmetry The following says: A process that reverses the parameters of matter, time and space into antimatter, the reversal direction of time and reflected space also corresponds to the laws of physics – and is therefore possible.
So it would be fundamentally possible that the Big Bang could be not only our own origin, but also the origin of a mirrored universe that would have evolved in the exact opposite direction. According to the theory, instead of the excess of matter, time and space, the opposite sign will prevail in it. This means: the mirror universe will have more antimatter and reflected spatial conditions. Furthermore, the understanding of time in a mirror universe would be different: time would also move linearly, but in exactly the opposite direction. “The universe before and after the Big Bang can be viewed as an anti-universe pair,” explains lead author Neil Turok, a theoretical physicist and astrophysicist at the Perimeter Institute for Theoretical Physics. Together, the two universes could also satisfy all the laws of CPT symmetry – something that our universe has yet to do.
