Planck time began immediately after the Big Bang. The explosion took place approximately years ago, and Planck time was the first 0,0000000000000000000000000000000000000000001 second following that. The entire universe was then contained by an area with a diameter less than 0,1mm. It was all there. The same way the seed harbors the "thought" of how it will become a flower, one could say that the idea of us all and everything that has been, is, and will be, was there, in that tiny little volume of space. years later a small part of that substance would end up as you and me. Did the substance know this? Did it know about you and me? Did it know that I would be writing this? Did it know that you would read this now?
