your world is not very friendly to hypotheses.Or are you from another dimension wherein all this has been "settled"??
the proposition that time doesn't exist
where did I say that?
thats one of the membrane hypotheses

I had to Google that one.
But all I found were biological references.
M-theory is a theory in physics that unifies all consistent versions of superstring theory....According to Witten, M should stand for “magic”, “mystery”, or “membrane” according to taste, and the true meaning of the title should be decided when a more fundamental formulation of the theory is known....
Intuitively, these objects look like sheets or membranes propagating through the eleven-dimensional spacetime. Shortly after this discovery, Michael Duff, Paul Howe, Takeo Inami, and Kellogg Stelle considered a particular compactification of eleven-dimensional supergravity with one of the dimensions curled up into a circle. In this setting, one can imagine the membrane wrapping around the circular dimension. If the radius of the circle is sufficiently small, then this membrane looks just like a string in ten-dimensional spacetime. In fact, Duff and his collaborators showed that this construction reproduces exactly the strings appearing in type IIA superstring theory.
"nothingness" seems to need to be redefined
....that it has always existed in one form or another? Expand. Contract. KABLAM!!...Etc. ?
... fair to ask . . . conscious? ... intelligent?
It's all NATURE
And, Father Time
that nothingness would be the lack of anything at all, including space.
I used to love to give my students the requirements to compute all geophysical concepts in "furlongs per fortnight"
