@Deborah1,
Nothing does not look like anything. If it looked like something, it would no longer be nothing. It would be 'that thing which looks like. . .'

@Deftil,
If murder's immoral and forbidden, why isn't war? Both Einstein and the 'Red Baron' themself called killing in war murder. And certainly what terrorists do bombing civilian targets is called murder and immoral, then certainly dropping bombs from planes is the exact same thing.

@trayvonte gates,
We contrast stuff with different stuff. In fact, that's the best description of the very abstract concept of information. Information is the measurement of what changed. Stuff is in contrast with other stuff. Nothingness is nothing. A self refuting idea. It cannibalizes itself own existence.

That is basically what he says. He says what we call nothingness is actually something. It seems to be the space that allows us to see the things we call something.
