When I think of the beginning, GOD or not, in the sense of the physical universe, I think of simple, and not complex. As I view ourselves with respect to our own growth, not just as humans but all life forms, plants etc., I see a pattern, we start out simple, you know, one/two cell organisms, zygotes, to infants and so forth. I view the birth of suns, in our universe, in a very similar light.

Starting out with hydrogen to helium (is that how it goes - hydrogen is burned producing helium?). The nuclear process may be complex (I am not sure - please let me know if I am wrong), but the key properties, from a building block perspective,
hydrogen & helium, have respective atomic weights of 1 & 2 on the periodic table of elements. You can't get more basic then that, or can you.

Now in all fairness, the perspective is from what we know from our measuring instruments etc...

But none the less, I find it fascinating, don't you.
