What was there before the Big Bang happened?
I know that there was matter and energy, but what sort of space did it occupy. What makes this space able to hold matter and energy? What would something be like if it couldn’t? This is something that has been rocking my brain lately.
I know that this is a hard question to answer, giving that nobody knows the true answer. I’d enjoy to read some opinions, theories or common reasoning about this situation.
