Is that it, then? The answer to the question of “why being” is simply that there is no “why,” that existence is a random quantum fluctuation? Then we can forget explanation altogether and simply quantum leap across James’s bridge. How did something come from nothing? No reason. Unfortunately, the trick only takes us so far. While cosmologists do believe that the laws of quantum mechanics can spontaneously generate a universe, this story just passes the buck. For where did the laws come from? Remember, we wanted to explain how something came from nothing—not how something came from the preexisting laws of physics. Removing causality from the equation is not enough. The paradox stands.
