Out of nowhere

If our current understanding is correct, the universe began 13.7 billion years ago in an explosion from an infinitely dense, infinitely hot seed of energy. The explosion didn't happen somewhere; it happened everywhere. Space and time came into being with the Big Bang. Big Bang? What a prosaic name for so all-encompassing an event! See this week's Musing.

And, as always, blessings on Anne for sharing with us her weekly illumination. Click, and click again, to enlarge.
