I don`t agree completly because just take space for example, it`s empty
I must admit that I did not read any answers on this. I had some time at McDonalds whilst drinking my coffee to find this:-https://www.livescience.com/28132-what-is-nothing-physicists-debate.html
It appears to be similar which is interesting because others also think in a similar way.
I think 'Nothing' applies correctly in simple terms like a box being empty etc.
There is a theological term that refers to " I exist therefore I am!"
To exist must have meaning? I sometimes look at a stone (not Mick Jagger) and think that I could have been that instead of me? Compared to myself the stone is nothing.
Yet it has meaning towards it's existence It becomes something when making concrete or to have meaning. A box is empty (excluding air and whatever is in it) but is still something when things can be stored inside it. Although the space maybe nothing, that is not really true because SOMETHING can be stored inside it.
If we say that this is incorrect because we are not talking about the packaging but what is inside the packaging hence being just space ? Then we have the 'something' (the box) consisting of the space.
We can further say that when we move the box that we have the same something inside but the nothing is replaced by more nothing...lol
So 'nothing' being variable
I have deducted that 'nothing' is dependent on 'something' because one is influential with the other. The more something then the less nothing and the more nothing the less something.
If ONE effects the OTHER this creates a problem as it clearly shows.
We have a similarity with colour. Black is our NOTHING because it is the absence of light, yet still something to paint our jeans. White is all colours as Newton discovered.
Yet pigments behave differently. If black is the absence of light, it could also be referred to the God factor between good and evil?
We know that spiritual light can ONLY (important) exist with sin or evil. It cannot exist on it's own.
This theory holds true with the devil. There is no devil. Evil is the based on the depletion of good.
Evil never did exist until we use it, just like 'nothing'
The absence of something.
Humans cannot live without sin and the priests know that.
We walk into the pitch of night and say we see darkness. We do not. We just do not see LIGHT( Physical light.)
The darkness exists like our 'Nothing'
Light will only generate through it as a void but without cannot exist. The word 'exist' is the word that we seek . As darkness must have a 'Normal'
A 'normal' in mathematics is as shown:=
Now we come full circle to our right angled triangle. one angle being used as Sine and in relation the other is a CoSine.
It stipulates the 'normal' that one element (light or something) needs (darkness or nothing)
That can be shown as you increase the something that you decrease the nothing as the right angle remains but your other two angles fluctuate on both something and nothing as one is inversely proportional to the other. Total empty being just the line horizontal whilst totally full (or something is a straight line upwards.
In 2D it is wrong by which both lines are infinity.
In further equations we get exponential but then it gets mind boggling.
Conclusion..... the first post could be correct! I could be incorrect......but I strongly disagree that the factor is simple.
It is simple if you look at it simply but if you put God into it then I believe that it gets very complicated...lol
Just my extended view...
