The Initial Singularity Illuminated.

It is only partially correct to note that the initial singularity - which contained all spacetime, energy and matter of the universe - proceeded the big bang. Truth is quite simple really. The initial singularity is self (big) differentiated (bang) out of the desire for companionship, out of the desire for friendship, out of the desire to love and be loved in eternal return.
