    The question doesn't really make sense. The Universe started at the location of the Universe. It was small, then got bigger

    It's equally everywhere, because the universe is expanding equally everywhere. This is like asking what point on a surface of a balloon the expansion started.

    The "origin" is not anywhere in 3D space at the present time T=0 (the current universe).

    It is in the past, at T = -13.8 BY in 4D spacetime.

    It started everywhere, the singularity indicates the point in time where everything was in one place.

    You really didn't

    It's equally everywhere, because the universe is expanding equally everywhere. This is like asking what point on a surface of a balloon the expansion started.


    Yeah but inside the balloon theres a 3d point where its the middle.

    The balloon's middle is not anywhere on its surface, and our middle is nowhere in our 3-dimensional space. It's somewhere out there... (waves hands pointing toward some direction at right-angles to reality).

    The Universe didn't start anywhere. It wasn't an explosion from a central point, it is an expanding realm of spacetime. There is no center of the Universe because everywhere is the center.

    Or think of it like this: The galaxy clusters aren't moving away from each other. Rather, the space between the galaxies is filling up with more space, pushing them away. And this filling up of space is uniform, such that the farther away a galaxy is, the faster it is moving away from us.

    And this perspective is observable anywhere in the Universe. Because everywhere is the center.

    Space itself is expanding. The Big Bang isn't like a bomb that went off somewhere and we're all shrapnel. Its more like traffic in your city that's getting worse over the years, it didn't have a specific car that slowed down first.

    This is why I think I'm the center of the universe.

    In the center
  • big pig peaches: This is why I think I'm the center of the universe.


    You ARE the center of the Universe. And so am I. And so is Mars and Alpha Centauri and the Milky Way.

    There is no center because everywhere is the center.

    I think what they've come up with is not a theory (yet) but a hypothesis. Whether or not it replaces dark matter as the leading explanation depends on well it can fit with observations and if it can make any predictions that can be tested.
  • How many licks does it take to get to the center of the universe?

    The difference is that the surface of an expanding balloon (where every part is expanding from every other part equally) is a 2D structure "mapped" on a 3D volume that is "inside" that 2D surface. That interior is not accessible from the 2D surface.

    The expanding Universe (where every part of it is equally expanding from every other part, like raisins in a loaf of baking bread) is a 3D structure. For the analogy to hold, It is presumably mapped onto a 4th physical dimension "inside" or interior to that 3D surface not accessible from the 3D surface.
