I'm not sure it's usual ... we don't have a preacher giving his sermon on this ... any honest physicist will tell you honestly that we honestly don't know ... no one understands QM or GR completely ... much of it is profoundly non-intuitive ... the laws of physics have never been carved in stone ... we can't say they're being violated until we know what they are in the first place ...Usually, we have to accept their singularity that laws of physics were violated because there were no laws of physics. I think I can accept that, but we don't completely understand quantum mechanics and the quantum world. People think all the energy is there when light or electromagnetic spectrum explains it as best theory.
The early universe was opaque ... there are no photons from this time ... no light to examine ... there's a wall out there past which is completely dark, absolutely no information comes from this time as light ... that doesn't mean we're guessing, we can apply the laws of physics as we understand them and make some shrewd speculations and at least for now these speculations seem to be holding water ... but "seems", "maybe", "could be" are all weasel words, we continue to study these matters and we should expect changes in our reasoning ...
Light and electromagnetic radiation doesn't explain anything about our early universe ... absolutely nothing from before the CMB Epoch, when the universe became transparent and photons could travel freely throughout ...
We just don't know as much about this as you think we do ...
