Why are we here? Such a powerful question that, most likely, every human being that ever existed has pondered that interrogation at some point in their life... and died or continue living without an answer. The irrefutable true is that nobody really has a flipping idea of why are we are, what are we actually doing here. All we have are theories, ideas, believes and feelings, but there is not yet a real, concise and scientific explanation that pleased everybody and answer the question of why are we here. That is one of the big mysteries of life: we have no idea of why, and yet we continue living as if there was no tomorrow.
I am not pretending to answer in this article such metaphysical, psychological and in many ways deeply religious question, of why we are here, everybody for sure will have somehow their own personal answer, each one valid and with a fundamental weight. What we can answer, however, is how we got here, and this is what I'll explore on this article. Perhaps, by finding out how we got here we can determine why we are here.
All research that I've done in this article has been done during my lunch breaks and dinner getaways, when I have the time to watch meaningful document videos and read interesting articles. I was getting frustrated and confused about what had really happened to life on Earth and how did we actually got here, so started this article to fix the puzzle and build a canvas to where I could lay down in broad light some of the questions I have, and perhaps work out the answers.
The Primeval Atom - 13.7 billions years ago
Religion and Science, reason and faith, are not meant to be enemies, rather, they are two wonderful tools that, like fire and water, allow us to digest the wonders of this Universe. It was a man of God, father Georges Lemaitre, who first proposed the Big Bad Theory, he called Primeval Atom. Absolutely everything that exist on the Universe was first compiled (that not compacted) into a single atom. Obviously, the Universe must have existed on a different state, not matter or space, to be able to achieve such a small size, to condensate all the energy in such a zero-space state.
This means that absolutely everything is connected, all planets, stars , galaxies, and you and me, where once a form of energy coded in the algorithm of the Primeval Atom. This is absolutely fascinating, and present the following questions:
If the Primeval Atom was the beginning of everything, then everything must have an end, there is no concept of infinite. What happens is that we are too small to see the end, but there would be an end, just like there was a beginning. Everything dies, even stars and galaxies, the Principle of Entropy dictates that. So, how will the Universe die? Why are we here is only a temporarily question given the fact that, at some point in the future, nothing will be here
How long was the Primeval Atom in that stage on codified information? Was it really energy that the Primeval Atom was composed of? We all know now that E=mc2 allows the matter to be exchanged with energy, and vice versa. This is why a tomato (matter) is nothing but the expression of the light of the Sun (energy), the tomato has the ability to transform energy into matter, thus to live. For this transformation to happens a medium needs to exists (rain and earth, in the case of the tomato). Analogically speaking, for the energy to be transformed into matter, a medium (space-time on this occasion) must exist. Therefore, could it have been the insufflation of space and time into this Universe the cause of the expansion?
What was around the Primeval Atom? Maybe more filaments of energy, all twisted together and somehow linked to the Primeval Atom. Science call the state of the Primeval Atom and its surrounds a "Singularity", basically a word to say there is no idea what is going on, no Laws being created, no Physics being defined, etc...but this is not quite correct: everything was already coded into the Primeval Atom, the Laws where there otherwise they would not have been created, just like everything single leaf and brunch of an oak was already coded inside the acorn
What caused the Primeval Atom to ignite? to expand? The only thing that seems to be missing on every singularity described by Science is the 1:1 composition of space-and-time that we perceive as our reality. Then again I ask, could that be the insufflation of space what caused the Big Bang? Expanding energy and allowing matter to be created as a consequence? And the time being a bio-product of this insufflation?
Note that this picture below is actually incorrect, the expansion happened on a tridimensional scale, not in a 2D representation as the picture displays... if we happens to live on a 3D universe, why cannot we perceive pictures and data on a 3D scale too?
A human being is created from DNA, and a massive Oak tree comes from a single Acorn, so we see examples of code complied on small things (like the Primeval Atom) than then later become more complex systems (like the Universe)

Apparently, this is as far as Science can go, before all. The Plank Time (10 to the power of minus 43)
23 after the beginning of the Big Bang, the Universe experience a process of inflation, an incredible expansion of all the energy. There must have been no matter at that stage, and just pure energy, and the following questions are to be asked:
On the quiet corner
Let's start for our big great home: our galaxy, our Milky Way Galaxy is extremely beautiful. I have been afortunated enoughh of seeing it once, in the Ronda mountains of Spain, in a clear crispy night. Me and some friends were drunks walking down in the mountains, go get to the military compound where I was doing the army.
