I will here attempt to explain why existence exists independent of consciousness.
The best way to go about this, I think, would be with the fact that
something can not come from nothing. For something to become something
else requires that it be within that things nature to thus change.
Nothing is not a kind of thing, it has no nature. It has no attributes
that allow it to be turned into something, it has no attributes what
ever, it doesn’t exist. Thus all that exist now must have always
existed in one form or another as it could not have come into being
Complex structures presuppose simpler structure
of which they are composed. All things are made of combination of
simpler things down to the basic constituent elements of matter
(whatever they may be). Before something complex can exist it must
Any mechanism allowing for our kind of comprehension
of reality is necessarily comparable in complexity to our own mechanism
of consciousness: the extremely complex chains of chemical reactions
and structures that make up our brains with the underlying subatomic
structures and interactions which make those chemicals possible and
whatever gives rise to those subatomic structures and interactions.
Something must necessarily exists before consciousness can develop.
This means that the universe did exist without anyone or thing
conscious of it. And should anything conscious no longer exist it would
again exist without anyone to comprehend, perceive or sense anything.
Ergo the universe, all existence, exists independent of consciousness.
