Oh wait, you can't. That's because nothing is something. Funnily enough, everytime you try to think about the dawn of existence, all you can think of is, a blank, white / black background. Too bad, that is classified as existence.

Then it begins getting to you how nothing ever makes sense. If existence itself does not make any sense, then how does matter make any sense? How does particles and elements make sense? And lastly, how the hell did we have the brains to develop into living in a fantasy such as today, communicating & even creating daily situations in our lives, labelling every dilly dally moment & emotion, yet we still, don't understand, why existence, exists...

Our brains are not programmed to understand something we cannot sense. Well my final theory is, if nothing is something, then something is nothing.



I think this is one of those things where Solipsists would have fun debating.

In fact, maybe you should read about the Solipsism Philosophy if you really are interested, it's one of the many perspectives on these sorts of things.

Actually, that was 25% correct, which is better than what most other people do. Aside from the whole "evil genius" concept, he got most of it correct.

The reasoning he uses for getting out of the "evil genius" dilemma is flawed.

"I think, therefore I am" is flawed; it contains assumptions that should not exist according to his brand of skepticism.

What exactly did Descartes get right?

I honestly don't believe anyone knows what the hell they're talking about when it comes to the world being brought into exsitence.

Jeez, questions like this make my head hurt. -_- Mostly because I wasted so much time trying to come up with an answer. Oh, would you like me to share it with you? Well, tough luck. I couldn't find one.

I don't bother thinking hard on questions like these than rather coming up with a short answer in a short amount of time. Personally I think we can imagine nothingness and just nothing, like never have been being born, though that's my thought, if you can't then whatever. Anyways, existence exists because there are things to allow it's existence right? Something like discovering a new planet, galaxy, star, or anything because before you discovered it, technically it didn't exist, until there is something to know of it and think of it it doesn't exist now does it? I listen to the quote from Suzumiya Haruhi, but I'm not good with memory, someone else say it if you know, but I think it had something to do with something existing because we're here to confirm it's existence and that if we, or anything else wasn't here to confirm it, then it wouldn't be known as existing. I rant a lot, sorry, just my opinion.

Umm, I don't know what an empiricist is and I'm too lazy to wiki, mind clarifying for me?
