Assuming an eventual Big Contraction for our ‘universe’, might there be re-inflation? That is, for the same energy level, would there be repetition of the same inflating of manifold etc.? Then subsequent continuation of contraction of such larger 3-space. But what about gravitational potential and curvature during such very late interlude?
Thus would such scenario seem too complicated and unlikely? But if such re-inflation is deemed too complicated and unlikely, wouldn’t it suggest that inflation for Big Bang was less likely?
