Grand Slam Theory of the Omniverse: What Happened before the Big Bang? is more than a theory of how the universe began. It is the realization of a larger reality from which its creation was made possible. It is the perception of a universal consciousness as it begins to awaken to its true surroundings. Our universe is rooted in a bigger reality, which it must overcome. As we shall see through our modern scientific context, this new model of something greater than the universe will help us solve the mysteries about our universe that we have sought throughout the ages. This is the Omniverse.
Modern science has given us accurate predictions, precise mathematical theories, and countless observations to shape our view of the universe. Throughout the years, discoveries made were like pieces of a puzzle. Some of the latest pieces include the July 4, 2012 observations of the Higgs boson and dark matter. Like separate pieces of a puzzle, we shall see how each part fits together to complete the picture. The Omniverse is the big picture. It is the puzzle pieces arranged together to form the model.
The model of the Omniverse is actually quite simple. It consists of a diagram small enough to write on a Post-it note. But what it means to us is huge. It is the universe's path to ascension, described as the Grand Slam. If our entire universe is just the size of a baseball, then picture the stadium, parking lots, and surrounding areas as higher dimensions of the Omniverse.
The Omniverse is more than just a new scientific proposal. It is information that awakens us to greater surroundings followed by a new era of scientific discovery. This model will have us dropping assumptions of what humanity knows thus far and realizing infinite possibilities.

"Love is not just an emotion. It is your very existence."
–Sri Sri Ravi Shankar
It was a hot and humid summer day in Chicago, unusually hot for the windy city known for its especially bitter cold winters. It felt like a sweltering heat; the kind where you could just melt right into the asphalt. The smells of hot dogs, burgers and sausages on grills everywhere permeated the thick, hot air creating what feels like an unquenchable thirst. Only a slight breeze blew over the cars in the parking lots and crowds of people who kept gathering regardless of the summer heat. There were families playing ball in the parking lot, groups of people tailgating, and crowds trying to get into the stadium to see tonight's big game. Many were diehard fans that were there for every game, every season. Some were there for their first time, to experience the magic as never seen before. But no one knew what would ensue on this magical night.
On this day, the gathering fans were at Wrigley Field listening to the crowd roar while enjoying freshly grilled hot dogs and cold beer, waiting for that special moment to begin. Play ball! Later in the night, the moment heated up with a tie game. It was a real nail-biter. Then, deep in the ninth inning with the bases loaded, the crowd lulled to a quiet hush as the pitcher wound up. After so many hits, game after game, this was the moment everyone had all been waiting for with the star hitter at the plate.
With the bases loaded, everyone in the crowd on the home team's side wants to see our star batter hit a home run, of course. The pitcher goes through his ritual. He holds the ball in his glove and peers out of the corner of his eyes to scan where everybody is in the infield and outfield. He winds up and gets ready to deliver his pitch. He wants to send that ball right down the middle, a fastball too fast for the batter to even see. But the batter knew exactly what was coming.
Suddenly, the crack of the ball being struck is heard by everyone as clear as day, as if it were right next to each and every person in the stands. The crowd reacts as if in slow motion, watching the baseball fly upwards in the sky. Everyone gets up out of their seats, forgetting about the nachos in their lap with only the ball on their mind, still going upwards. The crowd roars louder as the ball keeps sailing until it goes right out of the park! This is the moment we have been waiting for.
Any baseball hit within the park can become a single, double, triple, home run, or just a fly ball. It took a pitch just right and a perfect swing. The ball went flying toward the outfield with enough momentum to become a grand slam, and all of the players came running home. Victory is sealed as the crowd goes absolutely crazy with fans jumping from their seats, losing their food and drinks that were instantly forgotten in the sight of the ball that was still flying upward in the sky. On this magical night, that ball had so much momentum behind it that it never stopped and just flew right out of the stadium, into the parking lot where many tailgating fans had been waiting. This was truly a special moment and a very rare occasion, but the dedicated fans who waited outside the stadium knew that it would happen eventually, and if they waited long enough and came to every game, it could happen again. This baseball was no ordinary baseball, but a grand slam that was hit hard enough to clear the stands to sail free of the confines of the park. And so many special fans were there to observe this grand slam, which became a monumental victory for the home team!
After being knocked out of the park, this grand slam became a legend that no one would forget. For years to come, athletes, announcers, and fans alike would remember this very moment and talk about it as if it were the defining moment of their lives. Writers would compare every other victory in the game to this one because it was that special. Even the ball, which at one time was just like any other ordinary baseball, becomes much more valuable. Can you imagine finding such a rare gem at an online auction after passing from fan to fan, gaining value? Can you imagine how much it is worth now? This ball is not just an ordinary baseball.
On an astronomical level, this is similar to the great feat leading to the moment that sparked the creation, forming our own universe. And we are the fans at the ball park who observed it for the first time. As our lives go on, we are the ones who discuss how great this was and how it created what our lives have become today. Many books have been written about what happened after this moment, called the Big Bang. But we remember what happened inside the stadium, when it was a Grand Slam!
According to the Big Bang theory a single particle the size of a tiny point that consisted of all of the universe's energies expanded because, according to known laws of physics, it could not be stable existing as the single particle. The resulting rapid inflation began a series of reactions and infinite expansion as energies, forces, subatomic particles, and what we know today as our universe was formed. Now think back to Wrigley Field with the bases loaded, when that perfect hit cracked through the night became a grand slam and flew right out of the stadium. This resulted in a dazzling display of fireworks and lights at the stadium with the crowds on their feet cheering as loud as they could with all of the excitement of the moment in every single individual. A single baseball became much more than any other baseball that night. It became a legend.
What this does is set the precedence for an object to be the same object in one setting and become something much bigger in another. We wouldn't have seen the same celebration in the stadium if the baseball didn't become a grand slam and win the game. When it was caught outside the stadium, it was instantly more valuable than any other baseball! On the scale of the entire universe, the big bang particle might not have become a big bang unless it became something much bigger. But what made it into the Big Bang from that particle? How did it become so big? Did it get hit "out of the stadium" too? Have we just witnessed a life-changing moment that changes the way we understand the universe? As we will show in this book, the answer to all of these is a resounding yes!
What this suggests is that this "particle of everything" that became the Big Bang may actually have come from another source outside of our universe, like the ball hit from the park. This is a logical course of action because, if our laws of physics are correct, this Big Bang particle could not have existed in the first place due to its instability. In contrast, if the particle came from within a larger stadium and was able to reach past the confines of that stadium just like the baseball clearing the stands, then it could have passed beyond a horizon where it actually became what we know today as the Big Bang – the creation of our entire universe! The Grand Slam is the path of this particle before it became the Big Bang. It is the path to ascension for our universe.
What we will describe in this book is that in order for this Big Bang particle to be present in what becomes our universe, with our laws of physics as we understand them, it must have come from a region where it can exist as just a particle, or a region where it is stable. When is a Big Bang particle just a particle? When was our baseball just a baseball? It was inside the confines of the stadium before it became a life-changing moment as it was hit out of the stadium. Inside this stadium, which we will refer to as the Omniverse, our Big Bang particle is held in a stable form as just a particle. This particle, the size of a single miniscule point, still contains all of the total energy within our entire universe. When the Big Bang particle leaves its stadium, this is the Grand Slam. The object then enters into a field where our laws of physics now apply, and the creation of the universe begins with a Big Bang!
While so much research about the universe and data collected support the Big Bang Theory, not much has been observed about what happened before the Big Bang because humans focus on what can be seen, measured, and quantified within our universe. The proposal outlined in this book about the Grand Slam Theory of the Omniverse does not contradict the process of the Big Bang. Rather, it expands upon the idea.
The purpose of this proposal is to introduce the theory that the Big Bang's source particle was actually stable while it was present in one location. The Big Bang particle traveled outside that location, far enough to escape the enormous amount of energy holding it stable. Once clear of stabilizing energy, it is no longer stable and the Big Bang happens. The objective of this proposal is to: 1) bring awareness to the scientific community of the possibility of an extra-universal object capable on creating and conveying a Big Bang particle; 2) raise questions as to how this process might have occurred; and 3) formulate approaches to test the model presented herein qualitatively.
This work, although enthusiastically titled as the Grand Slam Theory of the Omniverse, is not yet a scientific theory, though it is a proposal. According to Steven Hawking, "A theory is a model of the universe or a restricted part of it and a set of rules that relate quantities in the model to observations made." A theory must satisfy the following conditions:
1) It must accurately describe a large class of observations on the basis of a model consisting of only a small number of arbitrary elements; and
2) It must make definite predictions about results of future observations.
It is the ultimate goal of this book to formulate a theory by following these guidelines presented herein. However, it is my purpose to present the proposal. I will communicate the proposal to the scientific community and the rest of the world in order to initiate the following steps of quantification and observation. Hawking also added that the goal of science is to provide a single theory that describes the whole universe. This proposal will describe the universe as a whole with only a few arbitrary elements, and it will make predictions about what types of observations will support it. In the end, I believe this will become a theory to describe the universe as a whole by providing it within a larger framework so one can understand the Omniverse as a bigger picture. This work is not intended to delve into any complex mathematics or formulas. Instead, it is intended to present the subject material in such a way to be easy to understand by any reader. This research will include a detailed description of all known, observed, and measured attributes of the universe from many of history's greatest minds.
Every year, several new discoveries that support the Big Bang and the infinite expansion known to occur in the universe are made, and this study will attempt to find a link. A link as to how the known properties of the universe might relate to the point of origin of the Big Bang. We will refer to the model as the Omniverse. 'Omni-', a combined form meaning all, was chosen as the prefix because this proposal looks at the entire process that contains a source of Big Bang particles and enough energy to maintain stability of an unknown number of these particles. Moreover, it contains forces necessary to push this Big Bang particle into conditions where the Big Bang happens.
In other words, the Omniverse is the birthplace of the universe(s) containing all of the collective energies, fields, and matter. Although the Omniverse may be capable of producing multiple universes and parallel universes, this inquiry is not intended to be perceived as a multiverse theory that explains how multiple universes came to be. Instead, we intend to learn about our universe and where it came from, describing the single connection with the source and explaining the process before our Big Bang occurred. While other universes may be created in this process completely separate from our universe, it is imperative that the reaction be viewed as a single event throughout the known universe, and everything we can observe in it. Other multiverse theories such as quantum theories are based on solid scientific principles and will be discussed in this book. It is my intention to propose this model within the existing framework of all successful theories of the creation of our universe and all that is within.
At this point, most readers might be asking themselves why a geologist would want to attempt to tackle some of the biggest problems of the model we know to be our very own creation. Did you know that the idea of a black hole in space was first postulated by geologist John Michell in 1783, about two hundred years before the first observation? Like many before me, I have a child-like nature and question everything. An education in geology has given me the tools.
As a child in Sunday School, I would be the one who would constantly ask "why" questions. Why did God create the universe? Why did God create planets, and even life? Why were we here? But I also asked where God came from. If God created everything, then it only made sense that there was something even bigger that created God. Who or what created God? I would find out later in life that we are not alone, and we are guided to learn more about ourselves and our surroundings.
After graduating with a degree in geology and starting a career, my curiosity was still insatiable. In my spare time I read books on astronomy, geology, and materials science. My mind was hungry for information and it had to be fed. Even in my dreams I would ponder and ask the universe where it came from. I mentally extended a beam of light from my head with positive energy in hopes that someone or something would come to me and explain how it all happened.
That thought became a life of its own, because something unexplainable did happen. Something happened before I had my "ah-ha" moment, and that something that was so simple could be used to explain the process. Then, while watching an astronomy show on TV in the mid-1990s, I saw a presentation of String Theory by Michio Kaku. He proposed that vibrations might be the building blocks for the most elementary subatomic particle, the quark. My interest was sparked. In the closing, Kaku said that "sometime, there might be an equation so simple, that it explains everything in the universe and is only an inch long."
It didn't seem possible at the time, but all of the different fields of study are like pieces of a puzzle that show us how the universe began. When I started putting them together, I realized that a Big Bang reaction in motion could occur – and this creates an energy transfer. The momentum from the motion of the universe when the rapid inflation began might have caused these vibrations, like a ball crashing through a window. The ball didn't just appear. This would violate the laws of physics. The ball was hit out of the park!
When it comes to our current understanding of the universe, there is no single theory that explains everything, but there are several theories that explain parts. Think of a picture of our globe with continents spread out all over it. With plate tectonics, we learned that our continents had drifted apart from a point where they were previously a massive supercontinent, as shown in Figure 1. In the same way, the theories of the universe individually look very different from one another, but the pieces start fitting together when you look at the whole picture.
In the following sections, we will present the laws of physics and theories that govern our universe as we know it, discuss how we make such discoveries, and delve further into the theory of the Omniverse to show how the pieces fit together. What we plan to do with this research is to apply our knowledge of the universe and remove our human constraints such as the concept of time, beginnings, and endings. Instead of a constrained object within space, we shall see that our universe's relation to the larger Omniverse is like a fractal in which a pattern repeats itself. We may ultimately understand the true nature of the meaning of the biblical accounts of how God created us in his own image. What this leaves us with is simply the knowledge that we are just as much a part of the universe as we are of the Omniverse. The connection is always present.
Observation of features in our universe will lead us to observations of our connection with the Omniverse. After learning the concepts of this book, the next steps for the scientific reader will include devising mathematical models to test the theories, and ways to observe and measure energies that may not presently be known to humankind at this time. One important thing to note is that science hasn't yet advanced far enough for humanity to observe all of the energies in the universe. For all readers, this proposal is being presented in order to make a new framework of thought that can be disseminated to specialists of each topic covered in order to formulate approaches to test the model. Also, the concept can be understood by any curious reader. I hope that each person is able to take away a greater sense of being within the universe upon learning these concepts.
