To survive, I would go into and close the door of my "2nd Big Bang" time travel escape pod in which I have an eternity worth of food, water, and 3D
Blu Ray discs stored up, and go to a safer time and place, i.e. at least a lifetime before the 2nd Big Bang happened. You should hurry up and build
yours and stock it up before it's too late.
On the slightly more serious side:
Try to imagine complete nothingness. It is impossible to do so.
If a singularity of the kind that is posited to have preceded the theorized big bang "existed", that means all matter, energy, time, space and
anything and everything that you could possibly imagine to exist was compressed into an area of unimaginably small size outside of which nothing, not
even space, existed.
The ideas of area, volume, distance, length, width, depth, space, past, present, future, time, and space were meaningless at that "time". The
pre-big-bang singularity might have existed for an eternity before it "banged" into the earliest stages of what we know as our existence today.
If you've kept up with the discoveries regarding cosmology, the very idea of the Big Bang is called into question by observations which suggest the
expansion of the known universe is accelerating and will continue to accelerate "forever".
If, for the sake of silly argument, it was possible for a 2nd Big Bang to occur within the known universe, the stuff dumped out by that 2nd Big Bang
could never consume the already existing universe, which has been expanding for billions of years since the 1st Big Bang occurred, unless the new
stuff travels faster, catches up with, and overtakes the stuff that already exists which itself is already accelerating faster and faster in every
Einstein's theories tell us that the stuff from the 2nd Big Bang can't catch up to the stuff that's aleady here.
