Is the Total Energy of the Universe Zero?

Himangsu S. Pal


If the universe has a beginning, it is immaterial as to whether it has originated from something or from nothing, because in both the cases it will start with zero energy.

So the initial something cannot have any energy. However, we cannot claim that space, time, matter and energy have actually originated from nothing, because in that case there would not have grown the binding in between them that has been empirically tested and verified many, many times. Rather, we should say that all these four concepts have originated from some common source, from some common substance which may be called God.
