How do you know that?

Simple logic. If absolute nothing can turn into something, then it can't have been absolute nothing as the total absence of anything at all would mean the total absense of any reason for nothing to turn into something.

I think you are talking way beyond the limits of even the most knowledgeable physicists. There is no place in the universe where this kind of 'nothing' (absence of space-time) exists for you to have any experience of it. Which in itself sounds absurd because my little primate brain says "How can nothing exist if it's nothing? Don't you have to be something to exist?" Again, how about an "I don't know"?
