    nothing refers to the absence of everything...

    Then how can we convey thoughts if words are just words?

    a question that cannot be justified with a didactic answer. why is there something rather than nothing, is a question that could be answered if you just first of all "care" and second of all, you "become."

    I think nothing is just that... nothing.

    Isn't that a contradiction in terms bro to ask whether nothing is something?

    I think nothing is simply nothing, meaning it's the absence of anything that exists.

    further question, is nothing eternal? does it have a beginning or an end?
    The way I see it, nothing wouldn't really be anything, so there wouldn't really be any "thing" or any "being" that we can assess as having properties of being eternal or temporal.

    If that's the case, it's not really "nothing" because you have "something," namely, light and the spectrum of colors that you mentioned.

    Ah... probably the greatest question in philosophy...

    Bro, how can nothing even be an entity? An entity is something.
