Dear Cosmological Constants (Ian !)

These people are the epitome of the birth of the Universe !

[attachment=568]

Seems reasonable to me..lots of foam with life within it !...(and probably in a corner somewhere some new life is being created !!)


I understand that "foam" "preceded" the Big Bang !...Quantum Foam that is !!

So, what is this foam ?.....

Can I just say that in my infantile speculations could "Time" have existed before the Big Bang ?...just a different time in a different place ?

If time is the 4th dimension of this universe then it could not have existed before the universe began. However, there may be other universes that existed before our universe began & they would each have their own version of time - possibly - ish - sort of.

Thanks Eth,...this is what I was getting at by a  'different place '.....

Something had to spark off the big bang yes ?..(Quantum foam perhaps)........

...perhaps the birth of 'time' itself causes the formation of the cosmos as it creates a Universe to exist in !..

...also possibly - ish - sort of.

But what caused this 'quantum foam'? Parts of the Big Band Theory leave themselves vulnerable to theist attack.

But if there is no time, then what is the meaning of the word 'before'?

What I meant is that if universe A is, say, 10 billion years old, and then, in another part of the foam our universe is spawned, then time in universe A would have existed before our universe began.
