I think most professional astronomers would be surprised if it turned out that the Big Bang actually turned out to be a singularity, a place where time evolution terminates.Please clarify and tell me where I am wrong.
Before the big bang Time did not exist, nor mass, nor energy, nor velocity.
Or did they?
Thanks you for your help.

We don't know. The main prevailing mathematical model breaks down as it approaches the presumed start of expansion. But there are other newer models which do not break down, and they continue on back in time.
If these models are right, then there is time and ordinary space, matter, energy back before expansion started. The question is, which models are right.
I don't know about those. I stick to pretty conventional mainstream stuff. We'd probably better not get into those incredible theories because this Forum is really not for highly speculative notions, it is more aimed at understanding and discussing the models that the bulk of professional researchers work on. The stuff they have conferences and present papers about.Which prompts some incredible theories and ideas.
