Why is there something instead of nothing? One could simply answer that if there was nothing we wouldn't be around to see it but is there a deeper explanation?

You need both, something and nothing, for either to exist.

There was never nothing. Something is eternal simply because something can never come from nothing without cause or reason.

my rocket philosophy:
"It takes one to know everything before he can say he knows nothing. I do not know everything, so I cannot say I know nothing."

therefore, there must be something.

I have to ammend my earlier statement because perception is everything.

You need both something and nothing to be able to perceive either of these concepts.
