I'm looking at words like eternity and infinite and I'm thinking that if these words are an accurate description of whatever it is they describe. We must be the product of vacuum expansion. The eternal expansion of nothing. I heard that there are a lot of virtual particles in a vacuum. These particles annihilate instantly but Hawkings said that it was possible for these particles to miss sometimes. He said that at the event horizon of a black hole these particles could be split apart before they had a chance to annihilate. I look at this as the creation of matter. Seeing that matter is energy, this would be the creation of energy. This all sounds right to me but it kinda goes against the rules a bit. Much to ponder on this one.
