Born to do Math 71 – Big Crunch Theories
Scott Douglas Jacobsen & Rick Rosner

[Beginning of recorded material]
Rick Rosner: Then you have Big Crunch theories of the universe where everything collapses back in on itself, everything heats up because everything comes back together, but it is one other means of order eradicating everything. There isn’t any big time 20th century Big Bang theories of the universe that support the growth or preservation of order throughout the universe indefinitely.
Which feels right to people because it basically says there’s no free lunch anywhere, and you can’t win, say that under IC, IC would be a good framework for talking about the negentropic universe. A universe in which order can increase.
Where the order in the universe does increase due to the gravitational clumping or the clustering of matter, and where waste heat and noise can be sequestered or absorbed, with the result being that you have a net increase in order, which means that the universe isn’t a closed thermodynamic system.
You have places where waste heat is either converted into something else or is hidden, so that it is not a thermodynamically disruptive and entropic deal, one way energy can be absorbed and turned into order is the loss of energy by long-distance photons.
With the absorption by space by photons that travel billions of light years, where it is the Hubble Shift, where the farther away a photon comes from, then the less energy it has, apparently, because it is climbing up a—
