That’s a very creative way to think of it; in many ways the Big Bang was a click (explosion) and then a burst of energy and light that continues to grow, just as the light of your flashlight continues to extend outward. Perhaps no one is holding the flashlight? Perhaps it clicked on by chance or by a mere fluctuation. I’m not sure which thought is more comforting – that a person turned on the light or that it turned on of its own accord.

As always, a pleasure to hear your ideas!
