There was nothing before the Big Bang. No time, no space, no matter, no energy - nothing whatsoever, so there is nothing of something before the Big Bang.before the bb
If the BB is everything then possible it was nothing then BB in some very weird energy creation moment with all the perfect rules for it to work and continue as we see it.There was nothing before the Big Bang. No time, no space, no matter, no energy - nothing whatsoever, so there is nothing of something before the Big Bang.
Now, that's the typical answer you will get from typical BB-theorists, and I quite agree with it.
Would be nice if the universe had some chicken and egg and reason for the chicken. The universe might be a once in forever thing or just a straight forward conclusion to energy with creation rules that happen to infinity."we have to rethink just what the universe is."
Good point. The cyclic idea avoids impossible singularities.
Cat, with all due respect, you know, you are kind of disagreeing with yourself. A universe that is cyclic and something that has been cyclic forever must be infinite. I mean, at least, logic says so.I don't know whether you have seen my posts, but I believe that the "BB" was a nexus between two phases. There was no singularity. There is no infinite anything. It is cyclic.
