B Could the universe's Big Bang be 1D?

    Was the beginning of the univeres's Big Bang, a one dimensional construct which then formed into a two dimensional form and later, our three dimensions with time?

    We don't discuss personal speculation here. Do you have a source for this idea?

    No one knows. All theories regarding the very early universe are very speculative.

    While I'm not aware of dedicated studies, I think the LHC experiments would have noted if high-energetic (~1 TeV) 4-jet events would be very planar, as predicted there. And the cross section is not falling with energy, it is rising.

    I think, right now, It's not that speculative-- knowing that properties of the universe resembles condensed matter system.
