Did the Big bang need an observer? Is the universe held together by time travel?

Well there is a restaurant at the end of the universe...

but rumor has it there is a Bed and Breakfast at the beginning of the universe.

The patent office is full of "time machine patents", here is an article on some of the machines and inventors.

It seems folks really spend a lot of time on time.

Here are eight examples of inventors, scientists, and dreamers, claiming to know the keys to time travel, and in a few cases, even claiming to already have keys to a time machine.

Wouldn’t we all like to go back in time and change just one or two things from our past in order to improve our current situation? We’ve all made mistakes. Some of us want another shot at a few poor, difficult-to-recover-from decisions that made life difficult for a while; some of us want one more chance to put the right bandages on past failures to flip them into a successes; and some of us just think about going back in time to 1913 so we can put every penny we can beg, steal, or borrow, on Donerail to win the Kentucky Derby at 91.45-1 odds. Whatever our motivations for time travel, we’re going to have to put our faith in people who think outside our known universal box to actually experience it.

What is that relative to?

Good question. I think it's just the rotation/turning of the earth, so it's a measure of relative motion in space nothing more.

Just want to point out that one need not be physically present in order to observe something in another time and place. I'm referring to remote viewing of course. There is no hierarchical order of difficulty when it comes to miracles. It's just as much of a miracle to remote view the big bang as it is to have a dream that comes true.

Well said mate. Finally someone who sets things straight.

If you've seen the latest viral photo of Cassini's photo of Earth from Saturn, try to move back and visualize our galaxy, then back to hundreds of other galaxies surrounding ours, to the whole known universe (a giant bubble), and finally going back beyond it until it's the same as what Cassini pictured the Earth as (a speck of light) except having nothing but the black emptiness of space around it that goes on forever.

...Like a white pixel down to the furthest unseen wavelengths of light surrounded by an infinite void of empty space. What created that speck from that point which was a spectacular 'big bang' but would appear nothing more then just a speck; at that point we're trying to visualize here? I don't think we can comprehend how infinite empty space first created a big bang, which may have not been our universe but perhaps a few, a dozen, a hundred, thousand or dare I say, infinite others before our universe exploded into something?

Was there ever a beginning and will there ever be an end? If our universe is the only one, what was before it, was empty space? Imagine time travelling before the big bang in a spaceship and there was nothing, there was nothing to see outside your windows and sensors but emptiness, just pitch black nothingness. You fire engines, you even try warp speed but without any point of reference, your computer readings show full power to the engines but there's no measurable distance covered.

You deploy a beacon, a satellite, use it as a point of reference. Will the spaceship be able to fly away from it? Let's just say it can, and you have the greatest propulsion possible, you travel far to the point your satellite's signal gets lost and there's still nothing. How did the first big bang come into existance if there was nothing?
