I would like to write a little primarily on just one aspect of the singularity (hypothetical) that gave rise to the Universe. Some physicists evidently have considered an Einsteinist white hole for the gushing for of the inflaton and everything subsequent that matters-yet that of course is just one possibility. I am wondering about the relationships of space-time ( another concept of Einstein's) to mass and energy.

I would think that logically space-time is different than mass and energy, and that the expansion of space-time allowed some mass-energy to exist in various formations perhaps pulled along with the leading edge of space-time. Space-time have have no initial dimensions at the singularity but is instead of one zero dimension scale. Tightly bound and with no expansion it contains or wraps up matter and energy like some seed within a shell. With even one dimension it becomes of an absolute size if it is charged. Space-time with no charge, different than mass and energy might be infinitely introverted, and given a charge it extroverts drawing along energy within it. The dimensions it has may be some sort of function of the initial impetus for it to start-that is when it got a word to begin, the very word added a 'charge' sufficient for the expansion of dimensions and space-time in a zero resistance plenum, or alternatively, perhaps the plenum has some kind of an apposite charge such that it would attract space-time now with a charge unto it.

Temporal cosmological expansion of an inflation faster than light, does not define what speed faster than light it expanded at so far as has information reached the awareness of some non-physicists such as myself. Was it light speed times 5, for instance? The order of temporal thermodynamic expansion can be reversed it is said, and it seems at any rate to be a phenomenal segment of material with the phenomenal direction of time and space downloaded or uploaded from a more eternal criterion of logical inference. An infinite number of temporal universes might be created, yet that infinite number of universes could be contained within an infinitely insignificant plenum of eternity that is the province of absolute spirit.

If one contemplates energy and mass as the sole existent things possible, its illogical on the face of it, yet the criterion of universes derived from mass-energy constructs if extrapolated to very large numbers of universes becomes somewhat difficult philosophically to manage to contemplate holistically. It is useful therefor to consider all material-energy configurations or universes as a simple monism with contingent subsets of universes. There may be more to it than universes of courses, however logic would stipulate that the configurations of mass-energy inflated from some criterion of space-time develop within a timeless plenum-a plenum without temporally occurring configurations in itself and of an infinite volume. Spiritually the entire issue of space-time might be transcended by a dimensionless and unbound spiritual category of being that supports the pluralist conception of space-time and mass-energy without actually requiring an independent material energy or mass actually to exist. Human perceptions through cognition of sense data of mass-energy history and presence could be a subjective epistemological transformation such as Kant suggested were implicit human categories of experience. The Universe and the complexity of knowledge it presents may exist fundamentally as experience rather than for-itself if created by a designer or not.

Quantum mechanical phenomena such as virtual particles and super-positioning may occur at some sort of dimensionless level of space-time with a conservation of information effect of waveforms collapsed into sampling by scientific examination. All possible world-lines may simply mean that an particle in a transcending relationship to a dimensionless level of space-time when measured at any particular time or place conserves information in superposition potential, and as a temporally finite event contingency with just one dimension potential given up to measurement such as velocity or position. W.V.O. Quine's interesting topic 'The Ontology of Relativity' seems to indicate the natural uncertainty because of temporality and material contingency of everything material as mass-energy within the space-time scalar field.
