something and nothing
there is a very important idea i came across when i was at work and overheard someone talk about god. personally, i dont think god has a hand in my everyday life, i figured that im just a puny little person in some floating ball in giant space, in wherever our reality is, im sure god has other things in his head besides whether or not shit goes my way. now what the person thought god had to say to him didnt matter, what did matter was me thinking about how the universe got started.
the universe might have started with the big bang, or with god, or with what i am about to tell you.
the balance idea of something and nothing.
if there is a universe (or something) there has to be the opposite (nothing). so in short, a universe or a something will always have to exist since there will always have to be nothing to define it.
similarly, there just cant be nothing, it needs its positive something in order for nothing to be defined as nothing. so in reality, we are here not just because of the big band, or a creator. but because there has to be something in order to define nothing.
