1) The future might influence the past (a.k.a. retrocausality): there isn't necessarily evidence of this, but it would explain why quantum doesn't make any sense. I love how physics does this - takes a totally head-boner and adds new head-boners to try to make it all fit together nicely. Serious shit-thrown-at-the-wall until it's our societal paradigm!
2) Nothing is actually something: this is just true and has to do with the fact that, due to Heisenberg's other uncertainty principle around time and energy, if we know for CERTAIN that nothing exists somewhere at a certain time, then we don't know the energy at that time, so there might in fact be some energy and thus there might in fact be something. They theorize this could be how the universe just spontaneously erupted.
Disclaimer: I am being loose and have a loose conception of this stuff from years ago as a physics major in college, so let me know if it isn't completely accurate.
