: Such as ?

: One question which I've been thinking about recently is, assuming there was an initial 'big bang' (and that's a topic in itself), then how long did it last. I can put forward an argument for two ideas..one, it lasted time zero, this idea has alot going for it and fits in with a 'cosmic switch' theory that I have. The second idea is that it lasted a small undefined amount of time, which directly relates to the amount of matter in the universe and lends itself to a finite universe theory.

I'd be interested to discuss this, I've never seen any mainstream data on this, presumably because no one knows yet.
