Does the fact that time is infinitely divisible have implications for studying the big bang? As with all studies of historic events, we are looking at the big bang from a backwards perspective. So, if we look at the first second of the start of our universe in the big bang model, we try to chip away backwards from 1 second in order to get to the beginning, eg half a second from the big bang, 0.1 seconds from the big bang, 1 millionth of a second from the big bang, etc. However, if time is infinitely divisible, can we ever get to 0 (the start) or are we destined to chip away without getting to the beginning? Does this attribute of time (its infinite divisibility) mean that there is a paradox - there can be a start but that the start is infinitely far away (in time) that we can never actually study the moment itself?
