WHAT DOES YLEM MEAN IN ENGLISH?

Ylem

Ylem is a term that was used by George Gamow, Ralph Alpher, and their associates in the late 1940s for a hypothetical original substance or condensed state of matter, which became subatomic particles and elements as we understand them today. The term ylem was actually coined by Ralph Alpher. In modern understanding, the "ylem" described as by Gamow was the primordial plasma, formed in baryogenesis, which underwent Big Bang nucleosynthesis and was opaque to radiation. Recombination of the charged plasma into neutral atoms made the Universe transparent at the age of 380,000 years, and the radiation released is still observable as cosmic microwave background radiation.

Definition of ylem in the English dictionary

The definition of ylem in the dictionary is the original matter from which the basic elements are said to have been formed following the explosion postulated in the big bang theory of cosmology.
