"Where did space come from?"
Every so often, I'll spend about a half hour to an hour reading about stars, planets, and space in general. I find it fascinating, and there is a ton of information out there to read on the subject. However, when I close everything up and lay down in bed, I get hit with that huge wave, "What created space?". I'm talking the creation of matter, pre-big bang and pre-whatever god may have done it...I'm talking the blackness of space, the emptiness, the sandbox from which matter would ultimately evolve. Through readings, I have noticed that many consider this a rather elementary question to ask, one that should be avoided in discussions of space and completely rid of from the mind. Despite this, one really can't help but wonder sometimes, what the hell started it all. Does this ever happen to anyone else? It takes me a good thirty or so minutes to get the thought out of my mind, or else I will start to slip into a slight panic and develop anxiety at not knowing what started it all.
