      I don’t think this question has been satisfactorily answered, and maybe it never will be? If a testable hypothesis is found that provides a plausible explanation it might well raise new questions of causality.

      So far we have the observation that energy appears to conserved within the observable universe, however there is evidence from which we can infer that other forms of energy may exist, dark energy and dark matter, that at present we also don’t understand well.
