I know that many of you may not know what I'm talking about, but I'm gonna ask this here anyways.
Vacuum Decay is an event when a quantum field collapses into a lower ground state. This will cause a "bubble", which will essentially be a new universe, that will expand at the speed of light in all directions basically deleting everything it touches from both universes. This new universe will have different laws of physics from ours and this might be how our universe formed (keep in mind I am oversimplifying things in this paragraph).
However, if our universe did in fact occur from this, then why is our universe's expansion allowed to be faster than the speed of light from OUR physics instead of the previous universe's physics? Does this mean that if vacuum decay occurs for us and the new universe's physics allow the new universe to expand faster than light, it will be able to expand faster than the speed of light in our universe? If the answer is no, could it be that the reason our universe expands faster than light is because of the previous universe's laws of physics?
Thanks in advance for reviewing my question and sorry if you didn't understand it. Also, just because this is a question that requires a lot of knowledge doesn’t mean I copied and pasted it from another site. Some other person accused me of that when I asked the question on discord, so I’m just putting it out there in case anyone else is thinking the same thing.
That's interesting topic. I'd like to first suggest a few more articles just to be sure you have a more rounded perspective.
First, within the scientific community actually working on this issue, I think it's fair to say that the majority support the theory of inflation. The list of names rebutting Steinhardt et al is a virtual who's who of very pre-eminent names in the field. The article goes into some detail on the rebuttal.
Second, do you have a good understanding of what problems the theory of inflation provides quite effective arguments at solving? This is the reason it has such widespread support. This article is a nice review of that. There's some math in the article, but you'll get the basics very clearly without needing to get into the math.
Part of the issue involved here is a bit of a food-fight within the community about whether inflationary cosmology qualifies as "science".
The theory of cosmic inflation tries to explain why the universe is calm and flat. It says that just after the big bang, when the universe was smaller than an atom, and less than a quadrillion of a second old, it suddenly expanded very quickly, doubling in size over and over and over again. I study physics in college and right now working on my essay about cosmic inflation. It is very interesting theme for me, but unfortunately I'm not good at writing at all and I'm going to ask for help specialists from https://essaypro.com/write-my-essay.html to write my essay for me. Last time with their help I'll get the highest score in the class.
