One of the current leading theories that address this issue is that the "big bang" is the result of, for lack of a better term, higher dimensional
"curtains" that collided. It's posited that one of the higher dimensions (physical, not spiritual) is best represented in a 3d manner, as a series
of sheets or curtains that drift. Our universe is being created at a point where two of these sheets have touched.
Now, as to whether this is valid or just a WAG, I'm not the person to tell you. I've tried looking at the math, but the math used in the
postulation is as far beyond basic calculus as quantum physics is beyond Newton's theories. If there is someone reading this thread who can
translate "über-math-geek" into simple math-geek, or even closer to standard English, I'd very much appreciate it.
