So if a black hole in summary is any body massive enough to succumb to it's own gravity. And before the Big Bang all the Universe's matter was in one location. How was this not a black hole? Clearly if you have all the mass of the Universe you kind of pass that threshold of "just enough matter." I talked to Dr. Andrea Ghez here at UCLA about this and she said that without getting too involved in it that 1) space is warped by gravity/mass so in the beginnings it was not as we know it now 2) our normal laws of physics don't really apply anymore for various reasons. I was just wanting to hear some more opinions on this as this has always been a question on my mind.
