Hi, Stephen (after along time!), it is about THE "after Big Bang" inflation .
I am a 'noninflationary' guy: IMO inflation was deemed necessary to cope with the mathematical problems connected the Big Bang idea and applying the present (here and now) system's math to it - at a system ENTIRELY different from conditions we experience as the basis of such math. In my 'narrative' ( don't call it theory) about "a" big bang origin (which I accept in spite of my scond thoughts of the validity of the expansion) - I assign the starting conditions and the applicability of early-universe math to the transition "no-space to space" from the a-spatial proto-Big Bang into our space-time system. The transition from nonexisting (=zero) space into "space" is indeed an (infinite?) inflationary change. * Same thing with 'time', wich would explain the marvels of the (infinitesimal small fractions of the "FIRST" second): the transition of "NO TIME" into a 'time-system' - expressed in terms of physical quantization applied to the Big Bang conditions. I don't want to start an argument on this, I am not ready - it is a narrative.
