You ask an interesting question in an interesting way. My answer comes out of my so-called model and is a personal view of the mechanics of the
universe at the arena level. The mechanics are referred to as "arena action".
Our big bang arena is the result of the interaction between two or more arenas like ours that formed before ours, perhaps hypothetically about 500
billion years years before, depending on some variables. Each arena is characterized by expansion, and that expansion equates to the separation
momentum of the galaxies and galaxy groups that formed within them. Separation momentum is the conservation of the momentum imparted to particles that
form from the dense state energy of the each infant arena during the period of "inflation", so the galaxies in each of the parent arenas were all
moving away from each other when their growing Hubble volume of space caused them to intersect and overlap.
Infant arenas are dense dark energy that emerges from a big crunch.
The emergence of the new arena is preceded by the bang. The big bang is the collapse of the big crunch and is caused when the inflowing galactic
matter from the parent arenas accumulates under the influence of gravity until the crunch reaches "critical capacity".
At critical capacity the particles of matter that make up the crunch collapse, giving up all of their internal particle space, causing the big bang.
It is a collapse of matter into the dense state of wave energy, so at the instant of the bang the contents of the arena has collapsed into high
density wave energy, the "dark energy" that Bleeeeep wondered if I had thought of including in my model. It is there, and in the infant arena it is
all that is there. At the instant of emergence the dark energy is expanding as it goes through the natural process of energy density equalization
(conventionally called inflation) with the surrounding low energy density left in the space that the crunch formerly occupied. I would characterize it
as a collapse/bang.
Now let's step back and put the process of arena action into the perspective of the big bang arena landscape of the greater universe. There is only
one universe, so a big bang is not a universe, it is a finite event within the infinite landscape of the greater universe.
Big bangs are separated by a distance in space that can be described by going back to the example of parent arenas. Let's hypothesize that there were
two parent arenas, though multiple parent arenas is certainly possible in my model. The two parent arenas might be of different ages and at different
stages of galactic maturity. Those parent arenas would be unremarkable, given that they have the same life cycle as every other arena in the arena
landscape. They formed when their parent arenas overlapped and shared galactic matter in a swirling rendezvous that occurs at the center of gravity in
the overlap space.
One thing we can say is that the parent arenas formed a long ways away from each other, which is simple mechanics. Since we are saying that the
parent arenas are mature and are hosting a full complement of galaxies, then we are saying that they had been in the process of expansion for billions
and billions of years, so they formed a long long time ago. We also are saying that the rate of separation of the galaxies and galaxy groups within
each arena was similar and that it featured some ongoing acceleration over time like we are beginning to observe in our own arena.
With that perspective, the two parent arenas were part of the arena landscape, and that landscape featured them and an infinite number of similar
arenas across the infinite space of the universe. Each arena expands until that expansion is interrupted by converging with another mature arena, and
the result of that convergence (interaction) is the crunch/collapse/bang of a newly emerging arena composed of a portion of the galactic material from
