A follow up question, if I may.

Is there some consensus on a more precise age for the universe than "13.7 billion"? Certainly it's not something that matters in the context of our own life spans, but at some point that 13.7 has to go up. Like the joke of a guard working in a museum who says a dinosaur is 65 million and 4 years old, because it was 65 million when they started working there 4 years ago.

So, is there some agreed-upon starting point we can count up from?
