In my opinion, what we call "nothing"or "void" in our Universe it is just a part of the true vacuum.
I agree....................Today, cosmologists tell us that empty space is really, "not so empty". And locally, that statement is very true. Everywhere we look, energy and particles are always found. And even virtual particles, which come in and out of existence are found in abundance. However, they also tell us that empty space is not possible. That is to say, without the Big Bang, space itself would not exist. If I correctly understand the point your making, I believe you and I see things very much alike with only a few differences.The Void you describe is just that, nothingness. And truly, nothingness need not have a beginning. For this reason, I personally believe that the Universe is infinite and not as described in the standard cosmic model presented by science today. There will be those who disagree with this view and will cite the evidence for a Big Bang as proof that it all had a beginning. And if the Big Bang was truly a singular event, they would have sound grounds upon which to base their claim. If however, the Big Bang we observe is only a local event in a vastly larger universe, we in our local neighborhood would never be aware of the infinite space we may truly be living within.The scientific model is justified by repeatable evidence. The red shift is sound evidence for expansion. But this expansion does not disallow an infinite space. And to justify an finite space just because there is expansion ignores the possibility that this expansion is only a local event. The limit of our observational ability is determined by the speed of light and if other events like our local Big Bang are distant enough, we will never observe them.
