Could the Big Bang have been a Vacuum decay?
I don't have the background to say one way or the other, I'm afraid. I'm not sure that anyone in RL does, including practicing physicists.

That said, I have seen an article or book from time to time that talks in terms of an open universe aging/expanding to the point where eventually there is nothing but a void filled with vacuum fluctuations and that eventually (some incredibly long time into the future) one of those vacuum fluctuations would essentially act as/trigger/become a Big Bang event. Whether that would be equivalent to a vacuum decay event, I have no idea.

If anyone knows a physicist they could ask and get back to us that would be kind of cool. Smile
