  • Why is there existence?

    Best answer: AGREED -- great question. Why does anything.. anything at all exist? Why not purely and utterly - NOTHING! This is probably better in the Philosophy section. I think most PRESUME some sorta ordered Universe (including a multiverse) exists and then proceeds from there. This is no doubt what Cosmologists and... show more
    Best answer: AGREED -- great question. Why does anything.. anything at all exist? Why not purely and utterly - NOTHING!
    This is probably better in the Philosophy section.
    I think most PRESUME some sorta ordered Universe (including a multiverse) exists and then proceeds from there.
    This is no doubt what Cosmologists and Pysicists mean when they say "nothing" -- they actually just mean a Universe that already exists but is in a very low state of energy and entropy.

    But when the Philosopher asks "Why something rather than nothing" -- they mean truly nothing -- No laws, no matter, no order, no energy, no multiverse, no dimensions - not any one thing.


    And this is perhaps the most profound question mankind CAN ask. Sadly, many people scuff at this, throw up their hands and say "How can we know!"

    We also can not simply assert that the Universe "always existed" because this question asks "Why?"

    I would end with saying that we should continue to wrestle with this question but as long as we deposit physical explanations, those explanations will need further explanation as to why THEY exist.
    What is needed to end the causal loop is a metaphysical source -- A non-physical source that because it is not physical, doesn't need further explanation.

  • When you see that difficult road do you see it as a road that's going to lead you to your desired destination?

    Best answer: I'm Canadian. Canada's a huge nation with few people. Towns and cities here are literal islands of civilization in a vast sea of primal wilderness. So to my way of being and living, who the hell needs roads? I certainly don't. If the road's rough, I blaze my own trail. If the road's... show more
    Best answer: I'm Canadian. Canada's a huge nation with few people.
    Towns and cities here are literal islands of civilization in a vast sea of primal wilderness.

    So to my way of being and living, who the hell needs roads? I certainly don't.

    If the road's rough, I blaze my own trail.
    If the road's nonexistent, I'll hike, ATV, snowmobile, canoe, dogsled or snowshoe my way where I want to go.
    Or charter a float plane or ski plane to land me on the closet lake and make my own way from there.

    I've had the same attitude in my personal life and career.
    Because there's no such thing as a road that can keep anyone from their desired destination.
    Not in a world where anyone can make their own if only they have the will, courage and perseverance.

  • Is this a true statement?

    Best answer: I don't think so, because...
    (a) your examples don't form a valid "thought system" because they don't help us form or organize a conception of reality.
    (b) No thought exists without a conflicting thought. (hot/cold, day/night, good/evil. god/no god, etc)
