So normally this should go under the book review section, but I’m just starting this book and unqualified to deliver a decent review in any way. This book really puts forward the Cyclical model as opposed to the big bang theory that I feel at least comfortable swallowing. The book is geared to the general reader and goes through all the stuff that I’m at least aware of - basically giving quickies on the big bang, the normal inflation model explaining it dark matter etc.
But this Cyclic Model is so exciting and refreshing it gives me goosebumps, it’s something I really have never heard before - which is why I’m posting it here.
I do realise this isn’t a scientiffic forum per se, but I’m just putting this out there. I have just a quick question: Are there any peer reviewed articles on this - has this gained any acceptance?
Are there any good criticisms on it and why should people oppose this model?
This book sounds very convincing and if anyone knows something about this cyclic model I’d love to hear it, but as this is such a new concept to me I’d really appreciate some opinions and maybe a scientiffic article or two.
This really is a difficult one to wrap my head around and it seems to answer some difficult questions, but most of it fills me with a sense of wonder that I haven’t really had from popular science books for quite some time
