What is Conformal Cyclic Cosmology?

  • CCC, as it’s known in nerdy physics circles, is a theory given by theoretical physicists Roger Penrose and Vahe Gurzadyan that says that the universe goes through infinite cycles.

  • Each cycle begins with an event such as the Big Bang that birthed our own universe.

  • This might sound like a Rig Vedic theory of the birth of the universe, but the two scientists claim evidence in signatures of the cosmic microwave background — radiation remnant of the Big Bang, discovered in the 1960s, and evidence of the Big Bang.

  • However many aren’t convinced on the grounds that the signals for such a cyclicity may well be statistical noise.
