what is “nothing” to you? if you can observe it or discuss it, can it still be “nothing”?

This makes no sense.

It depends on your definition of nothing but yes because if nothing dident exist neather wold any thing witch would be non-existent.

nothing is the absence of existence. so by definition, “nothing” can’t exist for nothing to exist. quite the conundrum.

As in a vacuum?

xxporkxsodaxx's avatar

yea i guess you could say that to be true

maybe.. but from a philosophical point, a vacuum is something. I suppose thats as close as you can get to nothing though. From a physics point, its impossible to have a complete vacuum. Furthermore, if you could have a complete vacuum, once you accelerate it, particles would start to appear and the temperature would begin to rise suggesting there had to be some form of something there to begin with.
Maybe the past is nothing, because it doesn’t exist, or even the future. What do you guys think?

its funny how people answer these questions so matter-of-factly. “Blah blah blah so no.” :)

well when my bank account says 0.00 that pretty much means that nothing is existing in it!

xxporkxsodaxx's avatar

but 3 zeros and a decimal point are existing in it
