The Ambiguity of Usefulness ~ 11

According to wiktionary, nihility means nothingness or nullity, while nothingness means:
- State of nonexistence; the condition of being nothing.
- Void; emptiness.
- Quality of inconsequentiality; lacking in significance.

Now, let's move to the next topic: what is the first cause? Some people do not have the answer, while some others prefer to stick with his or her firm belief / faith. At one point, I found this video:

There's a spiral of - some kind of - fear while imagining that we are born from void. While I was observing some busy people with their own activity, along with a realization that they have their own story, I unconsciously mixed all of those with a droplet of disturbance: what if all of these are not really that matter? Somehow, it annoys me to have a thought that we are a product of void. But referring to the video above, there's at least something in nothingness. In here, I can grab two kinds of statement. One, if there is something, who created that something? Two, if that something is not something, then back to the question of "how can we be here?" For me, both questions look valid. But ultimately, here's a question that I want to ask if we know what is the first cause of all of these: WHY (just simply accept that I want to fully understand the "why" before we move on to the next "what-where-when-who-how").

I believe the answer will be something useful, or not helping at all. At this point in my life, I'm pretty skeptical about the answer, so I'll go with 'probably not'. Yet, what's "not useful" for me, may turn out to be something major for someone else. If so, perhaps you need to shift your focus back to the important things that will affect your future.
