Re: Why is there something rather than nothing?

Talking about existence is useful and intriguing. We can assume existence exists though imo, like Shannon and Descartes. What kind of existence exists besides our flawed or at least limited one is worth a thread, once again: imo (do I hear clap clap?)

We need to expand from the nothingness in the title, and thread flourishes.

I want to talk about differentiation and similarity. These are the two (or one) relations that changed the opinion of hard-nosed Bertrand Russell.

In a song, the sounds are the something that makes the song and so is the non sound. A rest for comforting ears is the place where a cymbal crash trails off.
