On one hand, why is there something rather than nothing? The answer is that nothingness and non existence have never been a possibility to begin with. The state of non existence doesn't exist. But if so, then each and every one of us should land on a great fun job that pays a lot of money, since they must exist in a world where there's no nothingness, right? Wrong. These things actually don't exist. Non existence IS a possibility for some stuff, but isn't for others. Non-existence is the absence of all states. Parmenides: "There is being, there is no nonexistence. If nonexistence existed, it would no longer be nonexistence." If nonexistence existed, then there would be no "state of nonexistence", since a state is something that already presupposes being.
