Hi My academic background is in philosophy, and I know very little physics. My attraction to the principle of sufficient reason motivates my question. My understanding of one theory of the origin of the universe is that it started with a "singularity" which then exploded into our universe. It appears that our universe is far from being a collection of identical objects all evenly spread out in a perfect spatial symmetry. If the singularity itself were not symmetrical, this could explain the asymmetry of the universe. But what could then explain the asymmetry of the singularity?
