Many refer to the question of there is something rather than nothing by assuming that something refers to the universe.
Is the word “something” an existential quantification in this context? Is something a word that English speakers can use without limitation, referring to entities or states of affairs or whatnot?
Definitions of this word make it very difficult to pin point the true nature of this word. It holds so much significance ontologically that an understanding of the meaning of something would be extremely helpful. Thank you
