Somebody could help me?

I have a theory about the creation of the universe.

I believe that the time is ciclic and everything happens continously. This explains from where came the energy to the Big Bang.

The universe began to regress and exploded in one point.

Am i crazy???

You could try reading Stephen Hawking's "A Brief History of Time" which touches on this and similar questions. Basically, it looks like the ending of the universe that we expect from the way things are currently going, even if the universe stops expanding and starts heading back to a single point, will be very different from the very smooth beginning - there are a very large variety of different "highly compressed universes" so even if the universe returned to the same size and expanded again, things would be very different the second time around.
