42. Such theories taken too far reek of hubris.
The universe is limitless. The scope of our perception is indeed quite limited. There may have been millions of big bangs. Furthermore, a "void" than contains energy is not a void at all. There never was a beginning temporally to the universe, nor will there be an end. Matter simply changes form, limitlessly, forever.
