"Why does anything exist?" has been a huge question that reverberates throughout human history. I don't know why, but I think I found out how. Bear
The ancients referred to the Absolute, or the world that we exist in, as the Void and the All. It is contradictory in itself because it is a concept
that our human minds cannot grasp, but that's how it is. I think the reason that this works is because the world that we live in, or the Absolute, at
its very foundation is the Void. Before there was "something" there was the Void. Even time came into existence after the Void, as time is the
measurement of change, but the Void does not change, for it cannot, for it is Nothing. The Void is all encompassing, but also nonexistent. And I
believe that all existence, or the All, is just manipulation of the Void.
The All exists within the Void, and the All must be divided into two parts, the All and the anti-All, the Yin and the Yang. All of existence seemed to
be layers of Macrocosm and Microcosm, where the bigger you get the more obvious the Duality. At the very foundation of physical existence, there is
matter and anti-matter. Whenever matter is created, anti-matter is generated in the same amount, and when the two interact with each other, they
negate each other and form nothing; the Void. Then, if you want to see it, Duality is a part of everything, and the All, anti-All, and the Void form
the Trinity, which is the only thing that is not dual in nature, consider the Yin-Yang symbol being the All and the Anti-All with the entire circle
that it exists within the Void.
But anyway, the importance of the Duality is that in the end, one part cannot exist without the other. For instance, light cannot exist without
darkness because there would be nothing to judge it by. However, this is also true for objects such as a table. The opposite of a table physically
would be the anti-matter counterpart to the matter of the table. However, the opposite of the concept of the table is the concept of the not-table.
Once one realizes the concept of the table, at the same time, one comes to the realization of what a not-table is, or in other words, what a table
isn't. You can't know what a table is but not know what it isn't. Basically what I am saying is that everything is made up of layers and layers of
The ultimate example of this, would be in Mathematics, the most exact of all sciences (not in the modern sense of what science means) and was
considered to be the logic of the Absolute. So what is math? I have come to believe that the only real "number" is Zero, the only reality. All math
and other values are merely manipulations of the Zero. For example, 1 only exists because there is a -1 to counterbalance it. Likewise, there is a
direct opposite for every single number. Take any equation and dissect it. For example:
2a + 3b = 4c + 5d
What does this say? To me, one side of the equation represents the All, the other side represents the Anti-all, and both are able to exist because of
the Equal Sign, which is symbolic of the Zero, or the Void (and again, it is a Trinity). So essentially what I'm saying is that I believe things
exist only because there is an equal opposite to that thing (in every aspect) and that in fact the two opposites negate each other, which is why
things are able to come out of the Void, or the Nothing. It is because they still equal Nothing, but is just merely a manipulation of Nothing, the
ultimate reality, and all other realities are based upon the illusion of existence. This is why, in my opinion, the Absolute is considered to be the
All and the Void at the same time, as the All (and Anti-All) is still equal to the Void.
Let me know if this makes sense, this is still kind of a developing theory. I know this isn't so much a conspiracy theory but I'd like to know what
you think of it, because most people aren't interested in reading anything this long.
Feedback and criticisms are welcome!
