We cannot transcend time as there is duality in nature that is an elctron could be a position or momentum. We have to assume time prior to exerience. Time progresses in a series with common factor of 1 as we count years. Since the universe had a finite begining there was initial condition or the first term of the series. It could be either position or momentum. Thus we end with a minimum of two series. Prior to two series is the possibility of one series which is the parallel universe.
