According to world-famous physicist Stephen Hawking, before the Big Bang occurred, launching the present-day universe, time existed, but not the time we conceive of as linear time. Rather, Hawking posits, there was imaginary time, which he described as “just as real as what we call real time.”

Speaking with physicist Neil deGrasse Tyson on National Geographic’s "Star Talk," Hawking said paradoxically, “The boundary condition of the universe ... is that it has no boundary,” meaning that there was no “time before time” because time always existed.

Hawking opined that time existed in a "bent” state, relentlessly approaching non-existence but never reaching it. Thus the Big Bang did not arise from nothing.

Hawking has said, “There must have been a beginning. Otherwise, the universe would be in a state of complete disorder by now, and everything would be at the same temperature. In an infinite and everlasting universe, every line of sight would end on the surface of a star. This would mean that the night sky would have been as bright as the surface of the Sun. The only way of avoiding this problem would be if, for some reason, the stars did not shine before a certain time.”
