: If nothingness was "before" the bigbang, what is it? Well.....nothing. Nothing at matter, space, time, thought. Hmmmmmm....where can I relate to this? Perhaps before I was born!!! Did the universe come from a state of absolute nothingness to a state of something, in a way similar to my "nothingness-to-something" Maybe the universe just popped into existance kinda like I did. Maybe the universe popped into existance WHEN I did. This would imply that before me......nothing existed. You may argue that you're older than me (I'm only 16 by the way) therefore you existed before I did. Is there any way you could ever prove that to me? Guess I'll just take your word for it. You, along with this elaborate story of history could've been created along with everthing else in the visible (and none visible) universe. Could you prove me wrong? What if you're just going along with the "prank" when you're reasoning your proof.

: : Maybe the "prank" is on you and right now I am attempting to throw you off, giving you reason not to believe the actual truth. What could I tell you to make you believe that I am conscious? What if you had this conversation with an advanced computer? It could uphold a convincing arguement but never persuade you to believe that it was alive, right? Well I may be no more conscious than that computer. You can never actualy know. But back to the original subject.....the before the bang and before you are very similar. Yet another reason to suspect that the universe is all in MY head. O.k. to you it's in your head.....

:i agre with makes sense!!!!
