Nothingness is an abstract concept to imply that a person can only think of something in an abstract sense to imply that such a term as
'nothingness' could be thought of as being used in mathematics but as of yet it can not be defined. The concept of 'zero' was created. Now think
about 'zero'. It means that there is not anything in a 'Set' of something elses that is and can not be a part of that 'set' of somethings. You
can put all the 'somethings' into a 'Set' and then it is concrete in thought and exists. But anything else outside of that 'set' of something
can not be evaulated. It could be another concept such as 'infinity'. Yet 'infinity' only means that it can go on forever because always
'something' can be still put into that nothingness but yet 'infinity' implies that at least there was something there in the first place to keep
adding to - thus infinity is something to begin with. Zero is nothing to begin with because it is 'outside' of a set of somethings that is tangible
and does exist. But the thought and the mathematics of 'zero' can still be used. If something else outside of the Set of somethings already existing
can be found - then it was from another mathematical Set of somethings that really was found out not to be Nothing.
If nothingness could ever exist, then first you would have to define how long of time it could exist and how long it would retain its properties of
'nothingness'. It would be like counting from negative numbers through zero into positive numbers. Anti-matter would be that example. Anti-matter
can exist, and so does matter. Now try and define at what point in space and what point in time that anti-matter turns into matter or the Set of
antimatter and the set of matter. That would be again 'zero' and as far as you can tell about the properties of zero - that again it is not an
either mathematical set. But still in computers it can be used and still in math it can be used because 'zero' is still contained and still has
properties that define the concept. Same way with nothingness. It can be used, it is abstract (without form) and still can be thought of - but as of
yet - you really have no means to ever make it something that exist in its own mathematical Set except only 'something' in its own mathematical Set
that can only be part of its own Set. It can not be added to or subtracted to or anything else be put into that mathematical Set called Nothingness.
It can be used though and that is about all anyone in a set of something can define it as. The same with the concept of zero. In computers it is used
to mean 'off' or 'false' or something that is not flowing as in an electric current or a light switch waiting to be turned on and the electrical
field potential flowing. Nothingness can only exist if something does exist. Nothingness can only be a 'derived' concept because 'something else'
does exist. Otherwise by its self or even with zero, it can only be an Abstract Concept because 'something else' makes it a viable concept that can
be used as a Passing Point of between different somethings that may exist but not have quite the same Properties such as Integers, Floating Point
Numbers, Transendental Numbers or Imaginery Numbers. But you could never define that Passing Point because you could never define its Properties
because if you could define it then it became something. It may be implied that it could retain a Property of 'Potential' but then a 'Potential'
is actually something that does exist so again 'nothingness' eluded a definition that could be defined as being something 'concrete'. The
nothingness stayed in the realm of the 'abstract' and only contains a Property that may be called the 'imagination'. Thus there is no language or
anything that can exist of something that can define it. Usually referred to as a 'void' because like in computer programming, it returns
'nothing', but still can be used to denote a change of one computer program starting up another computer program that took over then. As someone
else wrote in book about 'Proabilities' and gamblin' and games such as that:
How long can 'nothing' exist? You actually can not really give it a time for time has no meaning in 'nothing' or anything else. You could say that
'nothing' could exist forever, or that 'nothing' can only exist for so short a time that by the time you could even think of measuring it or
proving that it did exist, something was Created, and then 'nothingness' was gone. It was fleeing away at you but then you could not even see that
it was in the first place. It was a concept so empty that it could not even exist, but as of yet, only as an abstract concept to denote something
other than what does exist.
Kind of like chasing your arse around in a circle. You can never completely turn around enough to ever catch up with your own arse no matter how hard
you try. You can sit down and bend over enough perhaps to kiss your own arse, but then who would actually want to do that because that would be really
weird and strange to other people. Nothingness is then a joke that as of yet does not exist because actually no one thought that it was a joke except
you. Thus it retained its Property of Nothing because in the minds and brains of others, they just thought that the joke was not really defined as a
joke at all. Nothingness can have all the Propeties of anything that can exist, but as yet, you could never prove any of it ever.
But still a person can write quite a bit about 'nothingness' yet the concept is still totally undefined in the end, and it was just words typed in a
post that made you probably think of doing something else that did exist and not ending up reading all the gobblygook taking up your time reading it.
Thus as least, perhaps you even had some sort of feeling or emotion about how 'nothingness' can even have that Property if you so choose, but as yet
- can not fully imagine it completly or make any sense of its real meaning in the end. Nothingness is not even a ghost image of anything that can be
thought of, for the imagination can not put anyone that far into a Twilight Zone to even begin to think that it can have any Property you can attach a
