- I don't think it's either
__correct__or__complete__to talk about the origin of only our "present" Universe [the post-Big Bang Universe that we live in and observe]. I strongly feel that we can't correctly understand this "current" Universe without simultaneously asking**what existed**[and also__before__Big Bang__why__]. **Is space infinite in the real sense**? It seems so. After all, there isn't going to be a wall to mark the end of space. Even if there was a wall, there would be*something*beyond it. But trying to imagine a "really" infinite space gives me a sort of headache. So much space? How can there be so much space? Is the word "so much" even correct? Because no matter how much space I talk about, it's__surely__0.0000001% of some other, larger volume of space [which would itself be a minor fraction of an even larger volume, and so on]. Easy to get headache imagining this.- I do get this one thing quite clearly.
**The Universe cannot be finite**. It has to be infinite [saying this without defining what is meant by being infinite], because if it's finite and measurable, then there must be something beyond this demarcated box. - However, it
__isn't necessary__that being infinite must/should mean that if we**keep going in one direction**in the space, we must be able to continue endlessly. The latter is maybe possible but it shouldn't be essential. Why? Because it's possible that the shape/structure of space is such that if you start in one direction and keep going, then you eventually return to the same spot, much like revolving around a circle. But if this were possible, wouldn't it make space finite? Because we would be able to measure the total distance traveled? Seems wrong. Unclear. - Is it possible that this issue gets resolved if it turns out that when we start in one direction and ultimately end up at the place of origin [or "space" of origin], the distance travelled comes out to be what's known as "infinite"?
- Or is it the case that once we leave the place/space of origin, we can never return to it?
- Why is there
*anything*at all, we must also ask?**Why is there**. No Universe, no us and no space. Now, as much headache the thought of really infinite, endless space gives, that much headache the thought of*nothing/nothingness**nothingness*also gives. Now that we are here and we can think and observe, it becomes impossible to imagine this absolute nothingness. It seems like there__has__to be something [at least empty space]. - And here's the trillion dollar/euro/pound/rouble/yen/yuan/rupee question. Why doesn't anyone talk about the
**trillions, or trillions of trillions of years**that has been calculated as the age of our Universe? Why do scientists call Big Bang the__before__the relatively paltry 13.8 billion years__beginning__of time? Was there nothing, say, 500 trillion years ago? Or is it__correct__to say that time indeed resets every once in a while, and that it's__correct__to say that time indeed reset to zero - again - about 13.8 billions years ago? Such resets must've happened__infinite__number of times previously too [not any finite number of times, but__infinite__]. No scientist seems interested in tackling this question. What about a trillion quadrillion years ago?__Something__must have existed even back then, unless the very nature of time needs alteration. So like the space is endless, time too is endless__backward__[as well as forward]. You can keep thinking back and whatever largest number of years you come up with is but a tiny fraction of an even larger number of years, and so on endlessly. Another headache. - Now this point appears related to the first bullet point.
- God?
