Role of cosmic space in the existence of universe &

Space is the 'SINE QUA NON' or 'AN ABSOLUTELY ESSENTIAL THING' for the existence of any entity, be that entity as it may the singularity or any thing else. In other words, anything which has dimension cannot exist without the existence of space first. My question is:- Since the SINGULARITY before the beginning of universe as well as at the end of universe is conceived as containing the cosmic space time (as a potential) inside herself, then how does this thing called SINGULARITY herself exist outside any kind of space unless we conceive this thing called SINGULARITY as a DIMENSIONLESS POINT OF EXISTENCE, thus requiring no space for its existence. Your thoughts?

Again, the so-called "singularity" means we do not know. The equations of general relativity break down up at the singularity and give infinity for answers. So I don't think we should puzzle too much over whether a singularity contains space or whatever. We have to wait for some yet to be substantiated new physics to tell us what is going on.

The idea that singularity can be conceived as a dimensionless point of existence will at least obviate the need for any kind of space for it to exist & thus it can at least theoretically be visualized as existing without requiring any kind of space for its existence in the manner all the things of of our own universe require space as a prerequisite for their own individual existence on account of their possession of some or the other kind of dimensions. So the present idea of standard model that singularity is an Infinitely hot, infinitely dense & infinitesimally small cosmic egg which contains inside herself space time & the physical universe as a potential, can continue for the time being (notwithstanding presence of infinities in it as well as it being so big & unwieldy ) till some other superior model replaces it in the future. Your thoughts?
