@cicerone imposter,
I'll take that - As an 'I'd rather talk about myself, thanks. Thread-directive is redundant - Cic is pleased...'.

Have a brilliant Everything, Cic - Always.

And your expression about me is about you! LOL BTW, it's easy to ignore my posts. You're the masochist. Keep suffering, idiot!

@cicerone imposter,
The reason I don't ignore your posts is: You're a nice person - 'Needy' for 'attention', indeed - This thread is topic-specific, though - And you seem to not realise this - Your 'input' is ESSENTIAL - Making it 'relative' might be nice...?

Your 'insults/condemnations' are a defence-mechanism (Ego-based) - I've no ego... futile.

Have an interesting Everything, Cic.

@neologist,
There is no such thing as empty space. If you remove all physical objects, ie matter from space it still contains energy. The energy level can be anything except zero, or a negative number.

@sumdumgui,
Is there such a thing as minus energy?

@Fil Albuquerque,
Thanks for trying to help, but your link only succeeds in twisting my already simple mind into more pretzels. Drunk You see, I studied Accounting in college, and physics was way beyond my iq level. I can still remember, 2+2=4. A close friend of ours is a physicist, and he authored a book on the subject, and gave us a copy. It all looked like Greek to me! No comprende.

@cicerone imposter,
Since Feynman's famous quote cannot be verified I'll give you Niels Bohr instead:
"Anyone who is not shocked by quantum theory has not understood it." The point is, no one truly gets it...

@cicerone imposter,
My advice would be to put Mark on ignore. He is absolutely no fun at all.

It’s inconceivable for Us, We, humans, to experience ‘nothing’, or even contemplate what nothing would be like....Nothing comes from the ‘existence’ of nothing....

@Mrmojo121,
The obscure coinage "nothing" is self-contradictory. Nothing is nothing at all.
The very concept denies itself. We must understand that the linguistic usage of the term was always relativistic and metaphorical. Stuff like "What are you thinking about?" And people often say nothing, but they mean nothing important. Or "there is nothing in the freezer" but people mean there is nothing that we can eat, of course, there are air and water vapor in the freezer.
In space, there is vacuum negative energy and virtual pairs of particles...and even if there wasn't anything in space Space has at least one property, allowing motion through it, again not nothing.
The extrapolation of the relativistic concept to an absolute renders the concept of Nothingness self-refuting and paradoxical.
The pseudo question "Why is there something rather than nothing?" is an embarrassment to Science and Philosophy.

Post Scriptum - And this is important because it is a perfectly good example of why good Philosophy (there is a lot of bad Philosophy out there but that's another topic) is paramount to good Science and make sense Cosmology.

@Fil Albuquerque,
An interesting question that follows but in Philosophy of Mathematics or even Physics is what is the nature of the number Zero? Well in my own humble view "Zero" means balance between opposing equal forces, again not nothing!

Fil...
When they 'get it' they'll be awakened.
They'll correlate the correlatable (New word Smile) and conclude their inconclusions, maybe...?
It's all good - Enjoy the journey.
