Why does space exist?

Question asked by: mrquestion

Asked on: 31 Mar 2008

Why does space exist. Well that is part cosmology and physics and part philosophy.

Space may one day be clearly seen as some sort of necessary result of the laws of physics, though there always seems to be a disconnect between the laws and their instantiation - that is what makes the equations actually describe the world, can equations themselves bring themselves to exist in the real world.

Philosophically many turn to religion and bring God or gods into the equation to explain creation. This is one possibility although many find this is not satisfying in terms of ultimate explanations.

It may be all we can say is that the universe just is and an ultimate understanding as to why may be beyond us. Perhaps there is no ultimate why just like there is no particular reason why this pattern or that pattern of snowflakes falls.
