cosmology, evolution of young stars
An article in the National Geographic magazine describes the Big Bang event as linear in form. Does that mean that when the big bang occured, that the dimension of time was also condensed into a singularity? Could time have affected the way the universe unfolded? Would the way galaxies form and behave be a clue to the origins of how our universe behaves and what its eventual fate will be? Would time have existed only in relevance to the universe or as part of the infinity beyond as well?
