Editor’s note: The conclusions of various writers within this book, The Quantum Structure of Space and Time: Proceedings of the 23rd Solvay Conference, will be thoroughly analyzed asking the question, “What might change within this analysis if the Big Bang theory and current inflationary theory is flawed and the three faces of our theory, Big Board-little universe, Exponential Universe, and Quiet Expansion, are less flawed?”
