Q:
I've read your answer to the question. But why do the laws of physics, thermodynamics, and nature even exist. Did anything create them?

A:

We really don't know.

No matter how many times we succeed in understanding one level of laws in terms of something deeper, there's no reason to think we'll ever really get to the bottom of it all. We don't even know if there is a bottom.
