Yes, I've seen this lecture as well, as have a million other people. Keep in mind that even though there may be no apparent cause, there always is a cause. Existence is causality.
Also keep in mind that the idea of a first cause is not a real idea. Nobody can know anything about what caused the universe, except the fact that the universe has been caused to be.
Similarly, the idea of nothingness is not a real idea. Nobody can know anything about 'nothing' because nothing doesn't exist. You can't even know nothing doesn't exist because the word I am using to refer to 'nothing' doesn't represent true nothingness. No word can.

How can we be so sure that universe is caused? Why do you call it fact? It seems more like a probability to me. Just because "everything is caused" doesn't mean that universe is caused, because how can we know that "everything is caused?" Humanity have seen so little in the scale of the universe.
Huuns wrote:But you did use "true nothingness" here. Doesn't these words represent true nothingness? I'm not sure I see the problem here. If you can think about it, you can find a word for it. If you can't think about it, then you don't. It's obvious you can think about nothingness.
