Yah it may seem so after reading the question I am just going to put forward. Imagine that there was nothing in this universe-no homework, no exams, no girls(!), no countries, no earth, no sun, no stars, no galaxies, nothing at all!! Then, the question says, what would have been there?
I know it sounds dumb as the answer is quite plainly-Nothing! But for me its quite thrilling to imagine it. Whenever I close my eyes to imagine such a "null-universe" something pops out and starts life. Would that really have happened if there was nothing? Would something have "popped out" to start the universe? Would it have remaimed always nothing? Or something more? Or I have actually gone mad?
