The only kind of literal nothing I am aware of exists in two places - a vacuum, and inside a black hole. Even a black hole is iffy, given that both matter and light are in a constant state of being sucked in.

NOTHING has no qualities.
Without something there cannot be nothing. What kind of nothingness are you talking about.. An empty 3d space that you can move you hand through. To perceive this nothingness a sense of time must past and it must contain all the parameters to allow you to observe it. So it would have qualities.
Or are you talking about a nothing that cannot be imagined because if you are we cannot even talk about it because it would have no definition.....

Since you admit to being distracted by my previous reply, why not peruse it this time? First, look up "peruse." If it distracted you from questions regarding which you are not quite ready to comprehend the answers, then I've served you well.
Your persistence suggests that you are anxious to learn the answers to some high level questions. However, your style tells me that you are too anxious, and not a conscientious student. If I am to be of any assistance in your learning process, it would be helpful to know your educational background. Experience in the sciences is also educational.
In the meantime, perhaps you'd consider looking up Maxwell's Demon on Wikipedia, and following all the links. Let me know what you learn that interests you.
You are a strange and silly monkey. Once again did not attempt to answer my question, instead pretended to be of the stature to belittle me, you fool. I used the term distraction sarcastically, as one distracts and deflects from an argument with anything other then an on topic continuation of discussion. Why are you obsessed with Maxwells demon, and what is its relevance to any personal theories and ideas you may, somehow, have?
