Why is there something, rather than nothing? An ancient question that is an assumption, based on Law of Excluded Middle. Could there be both?
‘The opposite of a great truth is also a great truth’ – T. Mann
For example, the opposite of null (empty set) is the non-empty set, such as the set of integers, or the finite sets we experience. Also a lesser context can define, and complement, a greater context, and vice versa. That is, each is defined by what it is not i.e. its antithesis. For example, the antithesis of quanta and spacetime model’s manifold; that is, if we throw away quanta and manifold i.e. continuity, what is left? So what if our ‘universe’ manifold, or a divergent cyclical set of total universes [each total universe is comprised of a set of 3-volumes]; hence non-empty set with 1:1 correspondence to integers), has a greater context of simplest case i.e. null set? Could this be indirectly inferred; of course without ‘perturbing’ such alleged greater context? Such as by observation of large scale streaming and introducing a central force, suggesting multiple ‘universes’ i.e. multiple 3-surfaces? TMM
