Inherent Symmetry of the Vacuum
(c) Robert Neil Boyd

Supersymmetry is an attempt, like the "Standard View", to make sense of the plethora of subatomic particles and their relationships to one another and to the various forces. The same can be said of string theory, superstring theory, quantum loop gravity, and M-theory, C-theory, and so on. There is an inherent assumption in all these approaches, which is that there was a "Big Bang".

Although the "Big Bang" is assumed by many to be true, there are in fact, many ways which light can be shifted into the red, aside from the Doppler effect. Due to this fact, the concepts of the Hubble constant, the "Big Bang, the "expanding universe" and the "accelerating universe" are all still very much in doubt. Related to this, as fantastic as it may seem, it is possible that our normal way of looking at symmetry might be all wrong and that the vacuum is normally in a symmetric state as opposed to the commonly held views of symmetry breaking.

In other words, vacuum symmetry is a pre-existing innate condition of the vacuum and symmetry of the substantial vacuum is only broken by perturbations of the media. In other words, I think it is possible that the present views of symmetry breaking are backwards, and that rather than proceeding from a state which is symmetric, where our reality is the result of the breaking of this symmetry, that the actual sequence in our reality is perfectly the other way around, so that energetic events proceed to CREATE asymmetry rather than proceeding FROM asymmetry.

Looking at this in analogies to the everyday world, we can easily observe that when a large energy is imparted to a system, that the larger and more abrupt this energy is, the larger is the instability and the breaking of local symmetry is a consequence. An easy example would be the ignition of an explosive. Initially in a relatively stable condition, when ignited the explosive loses large portions of its symmetrical conditions in a dramatic fashion. Such cases are easy to observe in the everyday world, and such may be the case with the symmetrical condition of the vacuum.
