Not sure, but I can guess maybe:
* An attempt to understand the fundamental physics that created all matter in the time immediately after Big Bang?
* An attempt to understand what "the nothingness (the so-called fabric) of space" is?

Both are fundamental physics stuff. Neither is aimed at building anything other than a better understanding of, well, what we're all made of.
