If nothing exists, including any external time, then the Everything (also known as "the Plenitude", perhaps) contains all available
states as a fixed N-dimensional structure (N might well be uncountable infinity). If there *is* an external time, on the other hand,
one can imagine some sort of alternation between Nothing and Something. (Otherwise the only sort of alternation possible is a sort
of logical one, perhaps?)
