What if there was never anything ?
Just try to conceptually wrap your mind around that…but realize there wouldn’t be any minds to observe this “nothing” so it’s kind of a waste of time.
What would it be like if there wasn’t any matter, no anti-matter, no forces of nature – no nature? There would be no earth, no solar systems or stars, no universe, no gravity, no atoms, electrons or quarks. Would there be time?
Every time I think of this I imagine a painter standing at an empty canvas. He’s looking at me puzzled as if wondering, “why can’t I paint anything?” Then I zoom out to nothingness.
Is there a place where nothingness exists? Is nothingness something? I think it is. So the fact that there is something somewhere means that this place of nothingness cannot exist. Not here, not in another dimension, nowhere. Because everything is within the scope of Everything.
Before this starts sounding like a Dr. Seuss story, I will stop.
And yes, I did hurt myself thinking about this.
