Essay on nothing
We start, then, with nothing, zip, pure, zero, nada. But this is not the nothing of negation. For not means other than, and other is merely a synonym of the ordinal numeral second. As such it implies a first; while the present pure zero is prior to every first. The nothing of negation is the nothing of death, which comes second to, or after, everything. But this pure zero is the nothing of not having been born. There is no individual thing, no compulsion, outward nor inward, no law. It is the germinal nothing, in which the whole universe is involved or foreshadowed. As such, it is absolutely undefined and unlimited possibility -- boundless possibility. There is no compulsion and no law. It is boundless freedom.
Nothing means: No thing; not anything: The box contained nothing. I've heard nothing about it, No part; no portion: Nothing remains of the old house but the cellar hole, One of no consequence, significance, or interest: The new nonsmoking policy is nothing to me.
