Something, Nothing and Greed

So if nothing is still something… And something more is still better than nothing, does this mean that what was craved is only more something and since such is the case, does this make nature and the universe inherently selfish/greedy?

Life is. Atoms dont give a shit, they stay good with their tummy full of the same quarks for billions of years.

But how can we know single atoms don’t give a shit when we are also a collection of atoms, that /do/ give a shit.

All before life, universe had to do things to bring life after, does creation mimic creator? Does manifestation mimic the environment of which caused manifesting?
