No, I was not going to use the word nothing to write nothing in this post. I am actually interested in what nothing means, how the concept of nothing works.
- Does nothing exist?
- Or can nothing exist?
- How can we define nothing?
- Do we actually know what nothing is?
If I would have written nothing for this post, wellyou would all say: “her post contains nothing”. fair enough.
If someone tells you that they are good at nothing, then there is a problem. Because they must be good at something, it might just be a skill that no one sees as such.
When you open a box and say: “there is nothing there”. Are you so sure of what you are saying? There must be something, such as dust particles, colours, bacteria, air, I don’t know something is always there.
Or when we say: “I am thinking about nothing.” Then it does not work out, because you are thinking about nothing, thus about something (even if this something is the absence of things), right?
I have to try to answer my questions:
- At least the word nothing exists.
- I have the feeling that true nothing cannot exist.
- As the absence of everything, and anything.
- Probably not.
