Was Newton right?

11/02/2021 6:46 AM

Was Newton right when he declared that for every action there is an equal and opposite reaction?

If so,then everything happens in pairs.

The BB/BC happened forward and backwards in time.I know this is hard to grasp,but on the "other side" of the Big Bang was a Big Crunch(BC). Our universe may be alternating from Bang to Crunch in such a long time period that we cannot grasp it.

If Newton was right,there is no independent action,that does not have an opposite twin somewhere in our universe or our opposite twin universe.

Imagine two balloons connected together.If you squeeze one balloon,it becomes smaller,and the other balloon becomes larger.

The total quantity of air has not changed,just the position.

Perhaps that is the unseen energy that is causing the universe to expand?

Constructive criticism is always welcome.

The undefined abbreviation <...Our...> might call for inappropriate arrogance by the occupants. Undefined plural pronouns are a general abhorrence.

It is a fundamental principle of science that the current model is only the best fit to the experimental data produced. For instance:

  • The principle of the atom being the smallest unit of matter is fundamentally wrong, because it can be shown nowadays that everything is made of subatomic particles.

There are dozens of similar examples.

Therefore it follows that the answer to the question <...Was Newton right?...> is "no, though the model was the best guess at the time it was produced".

Basically the fact that a "current model" is just a "best fit" to the experimental data -obviously not all of it yet- does not really proove it being any closer to absolute truth. Unless you come-up with rational explanations for everything that doesn't match and then some. Things at that level of logic can be far from linear.

Even one paradox fully verified and unexplainable could turn things over, make some theories obsolete, proves others or give spark for new ones. I'm afraid we are trying too much to find "elegant" explanations for everything and when it comes to elegance, reality could be in a district neighborhood, not downtown. S.M.

A similar theory is that the universe is expanding in both positive and negative time. This theory cleans up a some asymmetries that are bothering physicists such as the charge-parity-time (CPT).

The Big Bang might have been the equal but opposite reaction half of the equation....If the universe was non-existent, and the space it now occupies was in high vacuum, the force might have been negative that forced the big bang which was then a big pop...the universe might have really sucked before the "Big Bang"....

So basically you're saying gravity is a myth,the universe sucks?

No I'm saying you don't weigh that much standing in water up to your neck...and if you increase the water density enough, eventually you are weightless...it's alll relative

If the BB happened in empty space, the reaction is the material going in the opposite direction. Imagine a firecracker hanging from a string; when it explodes, the reaction goes in all directions--every direction has an opposite and the forces are balanced.

Many forms of energy, firecracker is chemical, convert to mechanical. I think Newton would have agreed. Expanding is residual centrifugal from the first bang or were there more bangs? Question is what went bang?

The explosion is always followed by an implosion as the expanded air collapses back to it's original state.

As in the thunder that follows a lightning bolt. But still balanced.

By the same logic,as I said, the big bang was,or will be accompanied, or followed by a big crunch.

but there's no air out there. What's in motion stays in motion. Expansion. No velocity or direction change, no energy change.

The universe is still expanding and increasing in velocity,into what we do not know.

Is there a reference point or plane to define these motions?

The reference plane for all objects is other objects.

From what object(s) do we see expansion and especially the acceleration?

It is all around us.The entire visible universe is expanding,and the expansion rate is accelerating. Here is a link:

That's really a stretch from what Newton said. I think it's going to pop. (Constructive criticism).
