Cosmic collision 12 billion years ago. Created mega-galaxy? Any relationship to Big Bang?

as far as I can find out it is not directly related to the big bang. It as also thought to be a lot larger now as more galaxies are thought to have joined the growing mass.

Should Big Bang be reconsidered or revised or not be associated? Butterfly effect?

Stephen Hawking's (and Thomas Hertog) last paper published before his death suggested the existence of parallel universes related to the Big Bang.

I like the position made elsewhere by another that in each era we though we had it right, while considering all those eras before as wrong. Makes me wonder what the future era will consider ours in light of theirs? Rubbish or a foundation to evolve from?

Cool. Corresponds with research method. Research suggests. Does not prove. Always "open mind" for contrary evidence.

I often disagree with top scientists (even Steven Hawking) but usually it is me that is wrong. Maybe I should stop doubting but I can't help myself.

When taking research methods classes. Always told to proceed with caution. Accept nothing on faith.
