Why does anything exist?

LONDON (Reuters) - Scientists probing the nature of antimatter have found a bit more evidence to explain why the universe is not an empty husk, although not enough to account for the billions of galaxies strewn across the cosmos.

Physicists believe that equal amounts of matter and antimatter were created in the Big Bang at the birth of the universe 13.8 billion years ago. Within one second, however, the antimatter had all but disappeared.

That vanishing act - leaving us in a universe with a surplus of matter forming the stars, the Earth and all known life - must be due to a subtle difference between matter and antimatter.

Researchers said on Wednesday they had found tiny variations in the way a type of particle decayed into matter and antimatter during collisions in the Large Hadron Collider (LHC), the giant particle-smasher buried 100 meters (330 feet) underground at the foot of the Jura mountains outside Geneva.

The latest findings are the first to show that a particle known as a Bs meson has a slight preference for decaying into matter and are consistent with earlier experiments on other particles. Unfortunately, the differences are still far too small to explain the great abundance of matter around us.

Why does anything exist? because we think it does,because we were designed to think and believe that the reality we perceive really exists,but it doesnt,because our eyes dont see anything at all,they are only light receptors not capable of sight,all vision is taking place in our brains (within our minds) which arranges and forms electrical signals and light impulses into images of a reality thats compatible with themselves (our brains) fabricated images of a reality that isn't real,all is illusion,we cant see anything the way it really exists...

I take it you are a Bertrand Russel fan, or at least his table?

I know he was one of the many great minds of the twentieth century but I never read much about him...

Here is a short about appearance and reality, in which he uses a table for discussion purposes.

Luke is lucky his favorite troll does not have Hume's skill set, I assume he must have pissed a lot of people off back in the day.

Perhaps the father of religious trolling.

Because there was nothing and nothing happened to nothing and then nothing magically exploded for no reason creating everything and then a bunch of everything magically rearranged itself for no reason which then turned into dinosaurs.
