Wikipedia says, ‘[a] perpetual motion machine of the first kind [is] a “hypothetical machine which, once activated, would continue to function and produce work” indefinitely with no input of energy. There is a scientific consensus that perpetual motion is impossible, as it would violate the first or second law of thermodynamics.’
Is the universe a perpetual motion machine? If not, then it will ‘run down’ eventually and it has not been ‘running’ forever. Who or what ‘activated’ the universe?
