"Anything that happened before the Big Bang could not affect what happened thereafter."
"The early Cosmos was everywhere, white-hot; but then as time passed, the radiation expanded and cooled; then little pockets of gas began to grow; steadily brightening... we call them the galaxies."
"In the Big Bang we had equal amounts of matter and anti-matter; and as soon these met together, they annihilated together; and this battle played out, whilst the Universe expanded in its first minute of existence."

Fragments from Recovered Texts
Smash elements hard enough together
Into burgeoning energy
Exploited the likes you've yet seen
Each fusion more and more extraordinary
As the universe moves around you
Whilst emerging from within you
Failure to Thrive
After roaming for millions to trillions of years
An impact will strike
Unlike anything before
And it will collapse everything about you
It will flatten you
Like information printed into the Triassic planet
Like information printed on the face of black hole
No star is spared from this
