The Necessity, Yet Insufficiency, of Existence in Itself–by Cameron Daly

Existence itself must be the first thing to exist; for nothing else can exist without it. Thus it obviously exists, because other things exist. But at the same time, existence in itself is not a sufficient reason for other things to exist; existence could have existed just as easily without them. Since other things do obviously exist anyway, there must be more to existence–that is, that existence must have the power and will to cause other things to exist.
