What if humans, or other higher intelligences within our own universe went back in time sometime in the future, and created the universe in which we ourselves inhabit.

Yes, that's another possibility. There's plenty of energy in the universe; we'd just need to harbour it: we could get a lot from the planet, and more from the sun, and then there's antimatter...
