AbstractAstronomers have a good grasp on how the currently observable universe has evolved since shortly after the Big Bang. But what came before it? Several scientific ideas/theories of cosmic genesis have been put forward in the last few decades.All of the cosmic genesis models presuppose the existence of some "laws" of physics. Are these laws a priori with respect to the universe? Are space and time emergent from more primitive elements (such as pregeometry)? Could they be different in different theories of cosmic genesis? Are there some meta-regularities which all these systems of laws would have to satisfy?Breakthroughs in astronomy and cosmology often occur when someone is inspired to look at a problem in a different way. This was the case for dark matter, dark energy, the multiverse, and even the Big Bang. But it is difficult to nurture such imaginative leaps because they are rare and, by definition, often unexpected. It is also very hard to secure the funding required to rigorously investigate and test such new ideas.One approach is to bring together scientists with deep insights, researchers, and young students with unbounded imaginations and allow them to ponder the big questions. This strategy is at the heart of the New Frontiers in Astronomy and Cosmology, an international project launched by the University of Chicago and funded by a three-year, $5.6 million grant from the John Templeton Foundation (1).More than $4 million in New Frontiers resea
