Well right now the two main theories which provide the framework for "everything" right now is General relativity, and Quantum field theory. But these two theories aren't really compatible with each other. Only one theory can be right in any experiment.Something worth considering is that energy alone could not be a first cause. Petrol will release energy when poured on a car and lit but unless that energy is fused with the engine, you just end up with am explosion! Energy + matter + time = everything? How about Energy + Matter + Information (logos) = everything?
It struck me while studying a Computer Science MSc after doing biology for my first degree that the life science department had a really weak grasp on information theory and that no-one in information science had much time for 'the blind watchmaker'...
Neither of these theories can explain the birth of the Universe. For that they are looking to String Theory. Pretty sure they theorize that at the beginning the 4 fundamental forces where unified as one force. I guess they blew up. Idk if most people here believe in the big bang theory or not. But we can still witness background radiation from said big bang.
