Wait a minute, isn't this just re-defining the big bang as something 
that happened /after/ inflation?

My understanding is that the big bang came first, then inflation. So the 
big bang is still just as much a mystery as ever.

Or is my understanding wrong?

And if so, what do you call the event that preceded inflation (labeled 
'primordial fluctuations' in one of the diagrams on that site. Not a 
very catchy name!)?
