In a recent attempt to understand how conventional physics “explains” reality, I began to read Lawrence Krauss’ A Universe from Nothing
Krauss is one of those famous scientists like Richard Dawkins who doesn’t find anything strange about the fact that existence IS.
Instead he takes EVERYTHING for granted and attacks, like Dawkins and Bill Maher, the low hanging fruit of organized religion and its dogmatic, unproven Gods created in our image.
When I tried reading his book I got a bit frustrated and then checked the index for the word “consciousness,” and when I did not find it, I put the book aside.
The question really is – “what” exactly is “nothing.”
First and foremost it is a concept. Nothing does not exist. What exists is, well, everything.
Nothing is the word or placeholder we use for null – similar to zero in math – but in both cases (words and math) they are human abstractions or interpretations of Nature.
