There could never have been a beginning. There will never be an end.
For there to have been a beginning, a state of nothing would have had to have preceded any beginning, and nothing is an impossible state to have ever
By this I mean, try to define nothing, that state before any so-called "in the beginning." You can't. Even a state of nothing is something,
because nothing is what everything else is not, and that is still something ~ a definition, a definable state.
In other words, you can not define zero without inferring that zero is not one, or two, or three, and so on.
Therefore, everything, the entire definition of what nothing is not, has always existed, because zero is impossible. Many call it the multiverse.
Everything is, was, and always will be.
As for what all this is, the multiverse of all possible possibilities, and how it all came to being defined, I blame that on logic. Logic is god.
Logic prevents nothing from ever having been possible. And isn't that what we have and are? We are what nothing is not.
The miracle is not that all this exists. Rather, it would have been a miracle if nothing ever was possible.
And as for the nature of reality, I do believe all this is an illusion. Occam's Razor. It need not be really real, not in any true physical sense
that you may think it is.
If you've ever been fooled by a non-lucid dream before, and never thought to question the illusionary nature of THAT seemingly believable really real
reality, while you were experiencing it, you should realize it could be another illusion right now too.
I might even go so far as to speculate that all this could simply be gods dream, as logic goes on forever, attempting to define what nothing is
Before the beginning, zero, is logically impossible. Everything is, was, and always will be.
