My apologies if this has already been said and if I have completely misunderstood the idea, but in a programme summerising the Large Hadron Collider's activity so far, it was explained that the concept of supersymmetry has the universe as we see it being an error or a glitch - an inballance which we call the big bang.
If the universe was supersymmetrical it could not exist as we see it as everything would net to zero, it's only the fact that there is actually an inbalance that allows for existence. The implication is that there was no ultimate cause for the universe there was 'merely' a change in state of fundamental particles that have always been around - but perfectly balanced out.
(Although the concept of 'always' in meaningless before time. As is 'before time'. I'll get my coat.)
Luckily for me, according to the LHC output so far, supersymmetry is more likely to be wrong than right.
