Where did all the energy and matter for the "big bang" originate from? Did they already exist or created by something that already existed?
- Old Man DirtLv 78 months agoFavourite answer
They were "pre-existing" conditions!
Similar to the famous text that says "The Spirit of God hovered over the deep and God saw that it was with out form".
Just as the deep is a pre-existing condition, so were mass and energy that scientists refer to.
The Bible model places the source of the energy as from God and the mass from the "deep".
The models are very much alike, only the terms and suggested time frames are different.

one can make an entirely rational suggestion of vast creative intelligence driving this whole set up,from,the rules that elements follow,from each atom,electron,,their outer shells,in every crook nanny and corner of the universe,,which rules properties,and make up we are still discovering,all in creation,time/space,the contents of 'the rapid expansion' had a point of origin,we next ask,did dumb innate particles somehow agree after conferring on how they would act as a whole

Matter comes from energy. E = mc^2
The total energy in the universe is zero because there is positive energy from mass and kinetic energy and heat energy and there is negative gravitational potential energy. They exactly cancel each other for a zero total. Amazing how clever nature is.

It's quite likely that the total energy content of the Big Bang is zero. Gravitational potential energy is negative, and could have supplied all the positive energy needed to make all the "stuff". If you add all the positive and negative together you get zero. No net energy is needed.

It all started with a Battle between Captain Underpants and Pippy P Poopy Pants, who changed his name to save embarrassment
He became Tippy T Tinkletrousers and tried to destroy Matter by exploding an Antimatter Bomb helped by Bionic Barf Bunnies
The resulting turmoil Caused a Singularity which couldn't take all that extra Matter and became a Great Splodge
Not a Big Bang as previously said

I'll lean towards the universe and the laws of physics that govern it had a supernatural creator.

I suspect most people accept that the energy that went into our (pocket) universe already existed -- in an energy field of some kind -- but the primal origins of that energy will always be unknowable .

No body around to say, but certainly one mind staggering amount of energy.
One theory I have is what we call the singularity, may compare to a black hole with all the mass in the universe. That could amount to a lot of energy stored away packed into this singularity. Maybe not unlike a 2 pound ball of uranium compressed to critical mass, it releases a tremendous amount of energy. One little electron goes into motion in this singularity and a chain reaction starts, and bang, All this matter and energy released into this infinite void. The notion it is still expanding. Even reactions since like novas and chaos. Mass attracts mass and forms stars and their motions set up the dynamics that form our universe as we know it.
Something I summed after reading tons of papers and scientific journals on the subject. Then spot something strange while cutting metal with a torch, I see all these little balls of metal splatter on the floor and move in a very like fashion as forming galaxies and solar systems. Spinning clusters of metal reminds me of looking at time laps animation of many galaxies.
Just a hunch and notion with all this, every individual will have their own hunch and notion.
As for before that, might be a previous universe, ultimately collapsed into this singularity and the process repeats. Understand, we, as observers are a short lived speck in relation to XYZ,and T dimensions.

This is an unknown, but many consider that this universe is a subset of some other material or whatever word would be used to describe the "precursor" thing that is not this universe. The universe is, in effect, a result of some sort of segregation out of some other unified totality (which obliges that the remainder of that segregation process either also formed a universe, or became somewhat excessive in the original "thing"). That is, there is mass-energy equivalent that would negate all that is this universe, which has to be somewhere not in this universe. If this universe encounters that negative mass-energy whatever it is, it would be a neutralization of sorts that would make this universe return into the state that was the totality before the segregation process ever happened. I use time senses even if time has no meaning for the discussion, simply because we lack a way to express things otherwise.
That is about the closest I can come to explaining what has to be. it is a long-winded way of saying 0=1+ -1, and if our universe is the 1, then there must be a -1 somewhere, because we came from the partition of a 0 net sum.

The Big Bang Theory only theorizes that the "singularity" upon which the Big Bang acted contained all of that matter and energy.
It does not attempt to theorize the origin of that matter and energy, nor does it even attempt to theorize *if* said matter and energy had an origin. (I.e. possibly it could have always existed.)
Some physicists *have* proposed explanations for an origin of said matter and energy. I don't know if such explanations have been classified as "theories", there being (I would guess) too little evidence to support them.
