This is the theory of the one.
The possibility that reality is really one thing with the illusion of separation.
At the beginning of Time, right before the big bang had happened, all things in the universe were once condensed into the size of a pea.
You could say that all things were one thing before the big bang. Everything.... matter, light, consciousness, etc, are all one thing with the illusion of time separating the present moment, and the end, from the beginning.
- Stephen Hawking.
time itself has a beginning, and whether it will have an end. All the evidence seems to indicate, that the universe has not existed forever, but that it had a beginning, about 15 billion years ago.
- Stephen Hawking
the universe, and time itself, had a beginning in the Big Bang, about 15 billion years ago. The beginning of real time, would have been a singularity, at which the laws of physics would have broken down. Nevertheless, the way the universe began would have been determined by the laws of physics, if the universe satisfied the no boundary condition. This says that in the imaginary time direction, space-time is finite in extent, but doesn't have any boundary or edge.
