The current model states that the universe began as a region of extremely high zero-point (vacuum) energy, which collapsed, releasing a massive amount of real energy,
So no need for a "big bang" then, right? Doesn't this describe an infinite potential of energy from zero point energy? Meaning, can't whole galaxies be created in such a manner at any point in time?
Indeed. And, in that way, the vacuum, which we typically consider "empty", is actually the source of all energy/matter, because in its "nothingness" is contained infinite potential energy.

Perhaps infinity is not something going on forever, but instead the inability for the human mind to comprehend the end of what could be considered "infinity". The end is there, but we can't see it. Am I being clear?.....I bet not.
I also think that matter may be created out of nothing. It had to happen at the beginning of the universe, so why can't it still happen? Where did this matter we have today come from? Nothing......
Is it possible that all this may be possible but we lack the comprehension and scientific know-how to explain it?
