"Everything and Nothing" are not interchangeable words. They are opposites.
No, they are not opposite, because they are not
It is kind of asking the opposite of zero. It's zero.
The only difference is from where you reach zero
. If you reach zero from the left, or from the right.
Same here Everything and Nothing are the same.
But you reach Everything by considering more and more things. Whereas you reach nothing by considering less and less things.
in fact, it would make more sense to talk about plus infinity and minus infinity.
They are both the same.
Imagine a circle with infinite radius, it is basically a straight line.
On the left you have minus infinity, on the right you have plus infinity. But on a circle, the left eventually meet the right.
Now, because the circle has an infinite radius, it never actually happens
, because infinity is not a number
. The same way "Everything" or "Nothing" is not a thing
Keeping that in mind, you can say +infinity and -infinity are the same infinity, the only difference is from where you reach
it (but you never reach it)
Everything and Nothing are the same "no-thing". We have 2 different words because we can reach it from 2 different directions. But they both refer to the same
