My notion is that the big bang is an event that is repeated an

infinite number of times, since time is infinite. Space is finite

however, and contains an unimaginably large but finite number

of particles. Since space is quantized, then those finite number

of particles can arrange themselves in a finite number of ways.

In an infinite number of big bangs, each of those finite number

of arrangements must occur eventually. Therefore, we have

been here before, having this exact conversation, thinking

these exact thoughts. Furthermore, we have been here

before in this exact configuration an infinite number of times.

And we will be here again, an infinite number of times. The

whole notion tends to freak ones beak, does it not? spike
