Understanding Nothing: Before the Big Bang

A new theory emerges:

That means that our universe today, roughly 13.7 billion years after the bounce, would share many of the same properties of the pre-bounce universe at 13.7 billion years before the bounce. In a sense, our universe has a mirror image of itself, with the Big Bang (or bounce) as the line of symmetry

So, after figuring out that the Universe is going to expand forever, they figure that maybe there was something called a bounce, and there was actually before, and we're connected to our identical twin, and we might have a collapse after all?
