In a Moment
The Beginning of All Things
Before the expansion of this universe some 13 to 14 billion years ago there was a tiny compact Big Something. What it looked like is moot question due to the fact that there were no eyes to see with a consciousness behind them to know that they were indeed seeing anything at all. With Everything wrapped up in such a tight little package there was noting outside its boundary because space too is a Something. When the internal confining forces were overpowered by the expansive forces the universe was set free and has been expanding ever since.
