This is how I explain it.
You have a vast canvas covered in black paint. To all appearances, the coat is perfect throughout. Not a single flaw. You would look at it and say,
"There's nothing there. Just darkness."
We identify "something" through a break in the pattern. Now put an ant on that black painting. If the ant sits still, you would still say,
"There's nothing there."
Now imagine a grain of sand. You would notice it and say, "Oh, there's sand." Because there's a break in the pattern.
So if there was nothing in the beginning except for that point of singularity, then how do we know it wasn't just a perfect state of serene calm, not
a single break in the pattern anywhere. We would say it's nothing because we are unable to discern anything.
I don't know, I'm just throwing ideas in the ring. Personally, I think it's an awesome idea to consider.
