Good question. I think the best answer I can give is that space-time never begins or ends and time as we measure it is simply a human construct thus
time as we refer to it couldn't have existed prior to the singularity because we haven't any frame of reference.
- When i refer to time i am not refering to the clock. I am refering to matter and particles that take up space. Was there any mater and
particles in existance before the big bang that you know of?
-I know you cant confirm this, but what is Your understanding of it?
My understanding is that all matter in existance was entirely within the confines of the singularity. That much can be verified through what we can
physically observe and correlate through math. The real kicker though is where did the singularity come from? And unfortunately I don't think we will
see the answer to that in my lifetime. I'm rather partial to black holes being the recycling center for
Matter and energy in our universe. With my background being grounded in Antgropology I can't say for sure though as physics/cosmology isn't my forte.
I just like to learn as much as possible and having a former Columbia physics professor in the family makes it easy to ask a lot of questions.
-You say that there was always time, and that there always will be time; But what type of time existed before Our time; The Big Bang?
Our time is controlled by expansion/changes in mater and particles.
Again I don't have a solid answer for that. One thing I won't do is blow smoke up your bum and try to convince you I know something I don't have an
answer to. I can only Speculate and as I said above, I favor black holes being the Defacto recycling center of the universe or Multiverse. Depending
on your personal inclination towards one or the other I could give a slightly different answer.
There must have been some form of time to form the center point/Singularity /The Big Bang ?
If not it would never have been formed.
- What is Your knowledge about that?
My knowledge of that is we really don't know anything prior to 10 to the 32nd seconds after the Big Bang began. There is no shortage of hypothesis
about what may or may not have existed but that particular math is a little beyond my scope. I wish I had a better more succinct answer but I'm not
sure that anyone does.
-What do you know about the expanding singularity: What makes the void/matter and particles that makes up the Space between galaxies, stars and
so on; expand? That Space is Close to a absolute vacuum, "No presure at all".
Once the universe began to expand at the speed of light it set it all in motion. In the near vacuum there werent any
other forces in the early universe to halt or slow down the expansion. I would use the Voyager mission as an example. One the craft was set on its
course and gained its momentum, nothing will stop its progress until its caught in the gravity of another object or crashes. The same principle
applies to matter in the early universe. Additional expansion forces would come into play from supernova explosions, quasars, pulsars etc. energy
can't be created or destroyed it only changes form. When any of these catastrophic events occurs in the cosmos it affects things across an entire
galaxy as new heavier elements are fused together and forces spread matter and energy in every direction. It's a classic example if 'from chaos comes
order' because eventually gravity kicks in and these heavier elements coalesce create new stars and on and on.
