Quantum Equation Suggests Universe Had No Beginning

The universe may have existed forever, according to a new model that applies quantum correction terms to complement Einstein's theory of general relativity. The model may also account for dark matter and dark energy, resolving multiple problems at once. "In addition to not predicting a Big Bang singularity, the new model does not predict a "big crunch" singularity, either. In general relativity, one possible fate of the universe is that it starts to shrink until it collapses in on itself in a big crunch and becomes an infinitely dense point once again. ... In cosmological terms, the scientists explain that the quantum corrections can be thought of as a cosmological constant term (without the need for dark energy) and a radiation term. These terms keep the universe at a finite size, and therefore give it an infinite age. The terms also make predictions that agree closely with current observations of the cosmological constant and density of the universe."

Interesting, the concept of "always" here. Eternity. Ein-Sof.

What about Entropy. The Universe now violates thermodynamics?

If stars super nova and there are new stars being born in stellar nurseries, wouldn't that be a perpetual mechanism to keep going forever?
Conservation of mass and energy.
Matter can neither be created or destroyed it merely changes form.

Agreed, but a universe with no beginning or end does violate thermodynamics. Must be a quantum exception, I can't fathom.
