Universal laws or cosmic laws are the underpinnings of reality. Without them, reality as we know it would not exist. Universal law gives order to the universe Biaya Uhamka . It is not necessary to be aware of these laws for them to affect you. Universal laws are always operating in the back drop of the physical universe with or without our knowledge.
Many metaphysical authors and professionals make a distinction between natural law and spiritual law. Natural laws are the forces identified by scientists as having a direct and verifiable effect on the physical world. A perfect example of natural law is gravity. Spiritual laws include the principles of attraction, abundance, and growth. These laws have not been validated by the scientific community, and so they remain in the realm of metaphysics. I use the term “universal law” to include both natural law and spiritual laws.
Universal laws are the forces enacted by the Creator to allow humans to experience physical reality. Physical reality is the environment where humans experience ‘life’. I sometimes refer to life as the ‘human experiment’. I believe the purpose of life is to create tests and challenges designed to improve our character, and grow in spirit. Some people refer to these experiments as ‘missions’. We carry out our missions through the roles we assume. Roles are analogous to the many ‘hats we wear’ in our relationships. People form relationships for many reasons. Some of these relationships include marriage, employment, social groups, religious organizations, and whole societies. According to the inflationary Big Bang theory, our Universe started out as a tiny Patch smaller than a proton–and then in the tiniest fraction of a second experienced runaway Inflation. That tiny, tiny Patch, far too small for a human being to see, was so extremely small that it was almost, but not exactly, nothing. That little Patch was, in fact, so searing-hot and dense that everything we know sprung from it. Space and Time were born together in the madly expanding fireball of the inflationary Big Bang. The neonatal Universe brimmed and danced with extremely energetic radiation; a seething, turbulent sea of dazzling particles of light (photons). The entire newborn Cosmos sparkled with a blinding brilliance of wonderful light. What we now observe almost 14 billion years later is the greatly expanded and expanding, fading aftermath of that primordial bursting of neonatal brilliance. And now we watch helplessly from our obscure little rocky blue world, as the flames of Universal formation fade and cool, and our Cosmos expands darkly into Eternity–like the eerie grin of the Cheshire Cat in a nightmare of a Wonderland.
Almost 14 billion years ago, all of Spacetime sprung into existence from a tiny ancient soup of densely packed, searing-hot particles. Spacetime has been relentlessly expanding from this initial brilliant state, and cooling off, ever since. All of the galaxies are rushing away from one another and away from our own large barred-spiral Galaxy, the star-blasted Milky Way. But it is a mistake to imagine that our Universe has a center. Rather, everything is traveling away from everything else, carried by the now-accelerating expansion of Spacetime. The expansion of the Universe is frequently compared to a rising loaf of leavening raisin bread. The expanding dough rises, carrying the raisins along with it for the ride. The raisins become increasingly more widely separated from each other due to the expanding dough.
On the largest scales, the Cosmos appears to be the same wherever we observe it. The Big Bang plus Inflation model has, for decades, been the strongest theory explaining this strange observation, which suggests that in the earliest instant of our Universe’s history, everything was in contact with everything else. This tantalizingly hints that the primordial Universe must have been very, very small, indeed.
The Big Bang theory alone does explain some of the observed features of the Universe. The major suggestions of the Big Bang model–the unimaginably dense and searing-hot condition of the primordial Cosmos, the birth of galactic structures, the formation of helium, and the expansion of Spacetime itself–are all derived from a large number of observations independent of any cosmological model.
However, in spite of its many successes, the Big Bang model by itself is lacking. A theory like Inflation is very badly needed for two very good reasons. The first is called the horizon problem–the weird observation that the Universe looks the same on opposite sides of the sky (opposite horizons). This very troubling mystery exists because there has not been sufficient time since the birth of our Cosmos almost 14 billion years ago for light, or any other signal, to make the long journey all the way across the entire Universe and back again. So, how could the opposite sides of the horizon possibly know how to look identical? That is the question. The second problem with the Big Bang theory is the flatness problem–the observation that our Cosmos resides dangerously well-balanced at exactly the dividing line between eternal expansion and eventual re-collapse back to its original tiny, hot, dense condition.
