My favorite head-hurting concept regarding origin of the universe
If this 4-D space (more like 11-D if you want to get technical about it)
in which we find ourselves has a starting point (like the big bang),
then what caused that to happen?
Unless you believe in A-Causality, something had to start it.
Now, time, as understood in modern physics, is a component of the fabric
of space-time that defines this 4-D space.
However, if something caused this 4-D space to come into existence -
well, that was an action. For any action to actually happen, there must
be some sort of time.
This implies some sort of time that exists outside of the fabric of
space-time that defines our 4-D space.
This implies more than one dimension of time! Multiple dimensions of
time would allow for (but not require) all sorts of time-travel and
cross-time communication scenarios. We could have apparent breaks in
causality (to those inside the inner dimension of time) such as the
grandfather paradox, but would not have true breaks in causality.

Thanks for nothing Xavier. Now my hair really hurts. Where, err,
when the hell is Schrodinger's freaking cat when I need it? There is
a reason I left quanta in undergrad. Oh, and in case anyone else
cares to make me even crankier by pulling Eigenvalues or Hamiltonian
operators into the mix, you all need to know that there was no big
bang. Repeat after me: Plasma Universe.
Gee. The Tao seems even more appropriate now.
On the first day, God created the heavens and the Earth
On the second day, God created the oceans.
On the third day, God put the animals on hold for a few hours,
and did a little diving.
And God said, "This is good."
