Something Rather Than Nothing

Something Rather Than Nothing
Annaka Harris

If the fundamental nature of reality is timeless (spacetime is not fundamental), everything simply is. Without a past or a future in the way we typically think of it, any glimpse of “something” is evidence that there is, and therefore always “has been,” something. In other words, the fact that there is something at all makes the term “nothing” nonsensical, and the mystery of why there is something rather than nothing dissolves.
