Habitable Epoch of the Universe

tl;dr version:
About 10 million years after the big bang, during a time when single giant starts were forming basic elements (no galaxies or supernovas yet, but rocky planets would have been possible), the average temperature of the entire universe would have allowed liquid water to exist.

Meaning water, the most widely accepted prerequisite for life to form, would have been literally everywhere. Let your imagination ponder the implications of that.

More reading: here's a page of Google results. Take your pick.

There's a level of facility that everyone needs to accomplish, and from there
it's a matter of deciding for yourself how important ultra-facility is to your
expression. ... I found, like Joseph Campbell said, if you just follow whatever
gives you a little joy or excitement or awe, then you're on the right track.

Water won't stay without an atmosphere unless it's frozen or encased.
Everything is interesting... look closer.
