Hmm.. I don t see it that way. Let say that our universe is merely one out of many cycles of the universe being birth-collapsed back onto inself. This could be mean that the total energy-mass of the universe say stays the same in such perpetual state. Now, our question still remaind ' Where did all the mass-energy came from out of these cycles of birth/collapse of the universe'?. 'When' did this 'cycle' 'began'?
