That's unnecessarily elliptical.

Your question, as stated, asks for an explanation for a state of affairs
which does not exist.  I find it relatively trivial to show that this state of

You are never going to get a satisfactory answer for why something exists
when it does not exist.  The best you can hope for is replies.
