I don't believe time started when the big bang (or whatever theory you subscribe to) occurred.
Time itself is much like a dimension of measurement. Regardless of what you stick on that dimension of measurement, that dimension spans
Time in my eyes has to be infinite.
Matter and energy began when the big bang occurred. (Or began again if you think the same way I do).
(The way I see it.)
Basically my understanding goes : If time is infinite, then the lifespan of our universe will be infinitesimally small compared to it. With an
infinite span of time to fill up, there will be an infinite number of universes that have come, and will come again.
With an infinite number of variations of universes, the likelihood of this variation coming into existence again is not just likely, it's
In fact, this universe, along with all other variations of universes will exist an infinite number of times.
As will you.
The only problem we as a species have is that the environment we have perceived so far does not allow us to have a true understanding of how
infinitely huge infinity really is. Hence, our brains are not geared to think along those lines.
To a certain extent, I can think along those lines...
Perhaps my brain is just wired wrong. lol.
