The concurrent thinking in cosmology is that the initial singularity is a singularity predicted by some hot looking models of the big bang theory to have existed before the big bang. I applaud those who have come this far. There is, however, one error in this explanation. "Before" denotes time, and time is relative in the absolute (singular) sense. What it essentially comes down to is that the purpose of self—the meaning of life—is fundamentally and existentially love.
