Sliced philosophy available now!

At which moment did the universe split into the two-thousand-to-the power-of-twenty-three ideas that we are starting to catalogue?

Medicine is not available to alleviate the minor ache caused by analyzing this question, and trying to answer it. But, we have a vapor-capsule which soothes.
