: the rapid expansion of matter from a state of extremely high density and temperature that according to current cosmological theories marked the origin of the universe
Many hold that a universe spawning from 'nothing', in its colloquial sense, is absurd, taking for granted that 'nothing', or a total emptiness of space, may not exist anywhere in the universe. In his book "A Universe From Nothing", Lawrence M. Krauss explains how something can plausibly arise from nothing, how matter and anti-matter work, and how the universe can be self-causing.
