This is along the lines I'm talking about. If we graph time from an "outside" perspective back to the BB instant, I'm thinking that it approaches zero asymptotically. If that were true, and I have no data which is why I'm asking the neighborhood astrophysicists, then we would have both a beginning of the universe at the BB AND the universe existing for all previous time. It would be as though one could meaningfully say that the BB occurred at time = negative infinity.

At least that's how I would design reality if I had been in charge, like, forever.
