What do you mean "No" ?
Because nothing inherently exists ?
So nature isn't natural, because it depends on causes and conditions ?

Please explain.

What does it mean to say Nature is natural? Exactly nothing. The duality itself of natural/unnatural has no actual meaning.

Nature is all the alls and all the bits. Depends on how you define the limitations of existence.

Liberty Sea wrote: Absolute non-existence/Inherent non-existence is impossible, even to conceive, because if you imagine a nothingness, that too is a form in your head. So, absolute nothingness doesn't exist in reality. It only exists as a logical fallacy. Like a married bachelor.
My logic dilemma demonstrated why absolute being is impossible for a finite thing but is possible for the all, after negating absolute non-being in the first place.

I like it.

It would thus follow that the All has forever existed. There was no 'beginning' of everything.
