My theory is everything exists because it is the opposite of nothing which is nothing. Feel free to steal.
Quote from: mriver8My theory is everything exists because it is the opposite of nothing which is nothing. Feel free to steal. That's not a theory. That's an hypothesis with nothing observed in nature to support it. That makes it meaningless.
Sorry my first language in cantonese sir.
since we can conceive the unknown ot exists.
No it is for you to go out and investigate.
A scientific theory is a well-substantiated explanation of some aspect of the natural world that is acquired through the scientific method and repeatedly tested and confirmed through observation and experimentation. As with most (if not all) forms of scientific knowledge, scientific theories are inductive in nature and aim for predictive power and explanatory force
A hypothesis (plural hypotheses) is a proposed explanation for a phenomenon. For a hypothesis to be a scientific hypothesis, the scientific method requires that one can test it. Scientists generally base scientific hypotheses on previous observations that cannot satisfactorily be explained with the available scientific theories. Even though the words "hypothesis" and "theory" are often used synonymously, a scientific hypothesis is not the same as a scientific theory. A working hypothesis is a provisionally accepted hypothesis proposed for further research.
But why should there be a symmetry between stuff and nothing? The theory is unfounded. And since nothing is unbounded, there should either be an infinity or an infinitesimal amount of something. But there isn't - the universe has a finite density of stuff interspersed with large bits of nothing. Hence the theory is unfounded and invalid.
Your beliefs are your problem. My observations are mine. Let me know when you have a useful definition of consciousness. Quotesince we can conceive the unknown ot exists. So there is no such thing as fiction, a lie, or even a joke?
