This is a followup to a previous discussion: A Proposed Proof That The Origin of The Universe Cannot Be Scientifically Explained
For your consideration and comment I propose the following simple thought and logic experiment. FYI - for my purposes the term universe = multiverse.
A Simplified Proof That The Universe Cannot be Explained
1. Consider an empty universe.
a. There is nothing to cause anything to happen.
2. Now consider the first thing in the universe.
  1. It could be a particle, a force, an underlying structure/law of the universe or even God.
  2. It doesn't matter what it is.
3. This first thing has no cause since there was nothing before it.
a. Therefore it cannot be explained.
4. Therefore the universe cannot be explained.
5. Corollary - Alternately, the first thing might have always been there.
a. This to cannot be explained since the first thing still has no cause.
Thank you for your attention, your consideration and your comments.
