I recently stumbled across this article from New Scientist, describing loop quantum cosmology (LQM). It's so far past what I studied in high school 30 years ago that I struggle to even understand the concepts that it discusses. I have no basis whatsoever for judging the merits of the idea, so I am hoping that some of the physics wonks here can edumacate me.
From what I can glean, it sounds quite exciting, in particular the possibility of our universe containing information from previous universes.
Big Bang and Cosmology, por favor.
