Please help me to understand how this is possible. If time is required for an event to occur and every event is governed by one or more laws, then how can the big bang occur without time and without laws? Dr Lawrence Krauss mentions that when all that exists is nothing (I know this is self-contradictory), then anything can happen as there are no laws to determine what is allowed and what isn't. Since we have laws now, we know that nothing can travel faster than light, but if there are no laws in place then anything can go faster than light, infinitely fast infact. Would it even be too much to say that in a universe with zero laws even 1+1 is undefined?
