This "Nothing" is a very, very strange “Component" because in a weird sort of way, “Nothing” is “Something”..... As it (Nothing) can be identified…
i.e. When it is said, “There is Nothing in there.”
So if this "Component" you call “Nothing” can be Identified, then this implies it, that this “Nothing” is indeed "Something"… Or you would not be able to identify it…
So if you saw Nothing.... you have identified this Component again, called "Nothing" ???

Our minds have the ability to invent things that do not exist - duality is only possible in the mind.
I don't think that Nothingness exists outside the realm of abstract concepts.
And there are situations where there aren't true opposites...like light and dark. Visible light is a tiny fraction of the electromagnetic spectrum. A room can be dark but be full of ultraviolet light that we simply cannot see. The room is bright, but to us it's dark. So with that there seems to be more of a wheel rather than a linear scale.
