There are several different ideas surrounding logic in mathematics.
Here are some of them.
Single Number Logic
This basically states that a thing can only have one answer. For example |x|=2 would normally have two answers, 2 and -2. This theory states that a thing can only be one other thing at one time, as the physical space it takes up wherever it is is not identical to the other answer’s space / position.
Basically this follows the logic that while |x|=2 gives positive and negative 2, positive 2 and negative 2 are not the same, thus cannot fit into the same category (x). X can be -2 or it can be 2, but it cannot be both.
Multiple Number Logic
This ideology states that something will always have many answers. For example x=1. x is 1 and 2-1 and 3-2 and 1/2 + 1/2 infinitely adding combinations. The idea is that 4+4 is not exactly the same as 2+6 simply due to the fact that, as with the above, they have different data, x+y =/= y+x due to its point in time and space, thus they are different answers. This only works in logic, not mathematics due to the fact that all possible operations are completed before the answer is given.
Mathematical or “Simultaneous” Logic
This is base mathematical logic, combining the above ideas. Something can be two things, yet it can only be those two things. |x|=2 gives 2 and -2 but not 2-4 or 1+1. Data has no unique position in time/space as such, instead it is seen ‘when needed’, as if it is dynamic in logic. There is no broad frame of reference as in Multiple Number Logic.
There is no beginning to the universe, only constant existence with no start or end point.
Some have said, (the evident majority) that time at one stage, started. The logic that follows is that anything that exists has been formed in some way in the past.
Humans can only imagine that which either lies in their memory or in genetics. Logic is something contained in memory (seen from the existence surrounding the person and from human base traits). Thus an understanding of something “always” existing is impossible to humans, and can only be labeled as infinite or other.
For something to exist it has to come from something else: there is no creation in the universe but rather modification.
This is a rather weak statement in logic, but as observed and by meta we can determine that it is very unlikely that it is untrue.
Something such as a “beginning” relies on relativity – time. Thus a beginning of time can’t exist as the method for beginnings to exist relies upon time.
“The ball in the box created it when the box contained it” as a metaphor to explain it badly.
Thus something starting without time is impossible, thus time being “started” is also impossible as it would require time.
