Hi, Stephen (after along time!),
it is about THE "after Big Bang" inflation .

I am a 'noninflationary' guy: IMO inflation was deemed necessary to cope
with the mathematical problems connected the Big Bang idea and applying the
present (here and now) system's math to it - at a system ENTIRELY different
from conditions we experience as the basis of such math.

In my 'narrative' ( don't call it theory) about "a" big bang origin (which I
accept in spite of my scond thoughts of the validity of the expansion) -
I assign the starting conditions and the applicability of early-universe
to the transition "no-space to space" from the a-spatial proto-Big Bang into
our space-time system. The transition from nonexisting (=zero) space into
"space" is indeed an (infinite?) inflationary change.
Same thing with 'time', wich would explain the marvels of the (infinitesimal
small fractions of the "FIRST" second): the transition of "NO TIME" into a
'time-system' - expressed in terms of physical quantization applied to the
Big Bang conditions.

I don't want to start an argument on this, I am not ready - it is a

Have a good 2009
