I've been watching documentaries and programs related to the Universe and its origins. That made me curious and I began reading/researching more about this topic. All sources do a good job of explaining everything back to the point of origin. However, there's something that no one seems to be explaining: where exactly did the original components come from? I'll use the Big Bang model to explain myself. The Big Bang theory states that there existed a "singularity" from where the Universe we study 13 billions years later was born. Alright, where exactly did this "singularity" originally come from? How would the Conservation of Energy Law explain this (if I am understanding it correctly)? This is how I picture it: nothing -> singularity -> Big Bang -> Universe. It feels as if the Big Bang theory wants me to accept that this singularity has always existed yet everything in the Universe displays a cycle of "life and death." When my brain tries to interpret Big Bang in basic mathematical terms it looks something like this: 0 = 1. Basically, nothing = something or from nothing came something. In conclusion, what I'm understanding is that energy created itself out of nothing; everything we know today suddenly materialized out of absolute emptiness. What am I missing here? Jordan Joab.
