I do not want in any way to inject the Quantum mechanics phenomena, like the effect of observation, even awareness on the outcome or emergence of the permittive condition. but It is not enough for some sentient being to have after the fact in the nascent vastness of the present universe to have pondered the pre=BB conditions to have them declared really existent. The essential situations, with non-destructible energy as a fundamental in the cosmos* as a given, requires real time to have been there, as a prerequisite, not just an afterthought triggering the permittiveness retroactively. The expanding sphere advancing into the future should not be thought of as bulldozing itself into the future either, but of, in a diluted form perhaps, still carrying out the BB cascading process of time/energy absorption from the surrounding realm, timespace or energytime. * cosmos as in the total all, more than just the local universe.
