Regarding what existed before the Big Bang, and assuming existance and the Universe itself isn't a false reality or a projection, I answer this issue
with one word: proto-matter.
Basically, you assume the Universe works on a cycle of expanding from "nothing" to collapsing to "nothing", over and over again. This "nothing"
is actually so-called proto-matter. The cycle has no end and no beginning really, so it can be said it has been happening forever, and will continue
to happen forever. Think of a backdraft explosion in a structure fire (yes, I realize the big bang wasn't a literal fireball).
Of course none of this can be proven, but considering proto-matter existed/exists before the detectable Universe did/does, it would be impossible to
prove its existance, thus making my claim unfalsifiable.
