This is supposed to be the smartest board, right? Explain to me why is there something rather than nothing

What a curious life
We have found here tonight
There is music that sounds from the street
There are lights in the clouds
Anna's ghost all around
Hear her voice as it's rolling and ringing through me
Soft and sweet
How the notes all bend and reach above the trees

>> No.17943858

Because we are pondering onto why there is nothing rather than something.

>the smartest board
/lit/bros... should we tell him?...

>> No.17943875

That question is unanswerable through our present level of cognition no matter how sophisticated it gets, so it always exists as an unsquared remainder in any thoughts we have about reality, tugging us toward a higher mystical knowledge worthy of God

Anyone who truly recognises the craziness of that question and the craziness of there being something rather than nothing, if the world is supposedly meaningless, anyone who looks at the question directly, will have his faith in atheism shaken and will suddenly feel like dedicating his life to knowledge

>> No.17943883

I'll tell him, brother.
OP, I don't know who told you this, but you were lied to. The smartest people on 4chan are actually BBC posters on /gif/.

There isn’t.

Why would there be nothing rather than something?

Being is
Since being is, being cannot not be, according to the law of non-contradiction

Exactly! Stupidest question.

Tell him a bunch of off boarders have squatted here since 2016, and have been increasing in general numbers ever since?

When most advanced philosophy you've read are the three short letters by Epicurus, maybe. Leave actual philosophy to us

nothing can only exist if there is something to observe the nothing.

OP is imagining us again ... regurgitating that

I AM therefore

nonsense ... not realizing that all that we are and all that we seem is but a dream within a dream.

probably not, but i don't know

he thinks there's something, lmao

Because we love in a simulation and this something is generated for the ultimate benefit of something else

>> No.17944818

you take nothing for granted. the ultimate question isnt why there are things but why things are a certain way instead of any other way. if you ask "why" enough times, you will see that ultimately no answer satisfies and that things happen to be the way they are just because, not because we dont know why, but because there actually is no reason

Rigorously define "something" and you'll have your answer.

>> No.17944835

because nothing doesn't exist?

>> No.17944863

If everything is a reaction to something, then it follows that there should either be nothing (eggs or chicken?) or that there exists one exception which could be called the Prime Mover. Now why is there a Prime Mover, and why is He our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, that's a question I will leave to the atheists haunting this board.

There is probably lots of nothing. But we can only see the something.

who told you there is no "nothing"? most of it is nothing. as many "nothings" as you can imagine and then some. I am not talking about the empty space in the universe. I mean whatever possible stuff; universes, objects, consciousnesses, that could exist but never did. there are so many things that are not that is not surprising that there are some things that are. we are just part of the latter.

1) God is infinite and eternal
2) Therefore, everything is
