Start with this picture again...

I start the Universe from zero. Zero is created from a hole with a membrane, a bubble similar to inflation. The membrane has the same volume as the hole. Add the membrane to the hole and you get this formula +1 + -1 = 0.

My scale therefore is 1.

What is scale?

Scale is relative. A tennis ball is bigger than an egg. A tennis ball in an empty space has no relative scale. How do you know its size? It has no discernible size. My first particle has no discernible size. My scale therefore is 1 for simplicity. My maths is +1 + -1 = 0 for simplicity. My particle has scale, but doesn't use energy to create its scale, because scale is relative. If my particle is size 100 all that has happened is that energy is now scale 100. If my particle is scale 1, then my energy is scale 1. Scaling energy is not the same as applying energy as a force. I can scale my particles, and their total will always remain zero.

+1 + -1 = 0

+100 + -100 = 0

Scale from zero is inflation.

I am trying to explain 1 particle. What if I explain 2 particles? What if I explain infinite particles?

My particles add up to zero. My particles scale energy, not use energy. they are stationary. They sit in their own space. Infinite particles add up to zero as well. Infinite particles can be any scale as well, because they add up to zero. Infinite particles can be inside each other, because they add up to zero.

What are these infinite particles that add up to zero?

They are space-time... the backdrop.

What do we have so far?

Infinite zero particles.

What else do we have?

Nothing.

Do we have time?

No

Do we have energy?

No

Do we have Gravity?

No

At this stage we have infinite particles of zero, and nothing.

Why?

Because the particles haven't overlapped membranes yet. They are everywhere, but not overlapping. The membranes = +1 but the +1 is hidden by the -1.

When two membranes overlap... When two bubbles touch.... we get something new. +1 touches a volume of a +1 membrane. This doesn't equal zero. This equals 0 + overlap volume. An overlap the shape of a lens is created. This lens is the first stage of evolution. It is the first thing that isn't nothing.

So what do we have now?

We have a new set of physics... an overlap that creates something. It creates a lens of energy. Energy is the new volume condition. Energy has evolved.
