I have felt this way for a long time. It just is not at all intuitive. For some reason, I feel like the explanation for the beginning will also be intuitively sound. This is in the same line of reasoning as to why I LIKE string theory. It makes more sense for the smallest unit to be made of something, as opposed to point-particle physics that says the smallest unit is a point with no mass. It could be a string as the smallest unit. It could be that a string is the best analogy available to us. It's just that that unit be made of something, not nothing.
