No Big Bang?

No Big Bang? Quantum equation predicts universe has no beginning

I confess...some of this goes over my head.

Ali and Das explain in their paper that their model avoids singularities because of a key difference between classical geodesics and Bohmian trajectories. Classical geodesics eventually cross each other, and the points at which they converge are singularities. In contrast, Bohmian trajectories never cross each other, so singularities do not appear in the equations.
To me, this basically means that instead of a 'big bang' there was a 'big near miss,' and instead of a single infinitely dense point, everything was "really close" together. Not quite super-imposed because this formulation from these mathematical principles says it is impossible.

This is an attempt at explaining the "first" event, and is functionally (at least as far as we - and everything that occurred more than moments after this event - are concerned) the same as the big bang theory.
It's easy to have a big hammer and think that everything is a nail
