Where does it all come from? Ok, I like the big bang theory and subscribe to it (although they are raising their rates, maybe due to postage costs going up). That theory says that at “some time” all of matter was squeezed into an infinitesimally small point, a “space” so small that it is difficult to say that it exists.
There that tiny point is surrounded by nothing. However, there is a strain on nothing to become something. That is how nothing is made up; it has this strain on it. That is actually how you can truly spot nothing because, if you look for that strain, you can know you have nothing in your gun sights. The strain is a part of nothing just like peanuts are in peanut butter; take out the peanuts and you no longer have peanut butter. Take out the strain and you no longer have nothing.
This is one way we define things. We take away attributes until we get to the attribute that, if that one is removed, we no longer have the thing. Take all the pedals off of a rose and poof no more rose.
So, on nothing is a strain to become something. It is a powerful strain and we see the results everyday because here we are. We are something and before there was nothing, so the strain worked. See how proof of reasoning can work out?
Just don’t forget it !
