The Nature of Nothing


Author's Note: For more on NOTHING, visit New Scientist

 
The Nature of Nothing


There is no such thing as "No-Thing"
For that which does not exist
Can in no way be said to have presence
In other words, Nothing does not exist!

These may seem blatant statements of the obvious
But the prevalence of double-negatives
In regular speech is a clear indicator
That such statements aren't actually understood.

Nothing seems to be a lot harder to think about
Merely by virtue of its being an absence, a void
So we inadvertently reify it as a "Sum-Thing"
Bringing us back around full-circle to square zero...

Don't be shy, REPLY!
