    Mr. Concienne, far be it from me to dispute a learned man, being just a simple 'ol East Texas Piney Woods stomper myself, but it seems to me that the concept of nothing is easily seen, and demonstrated often.
    All one has to do is fly to D.C. tomorrow, and bear witness to the total postive non-partisan effort by the elected politicians and their appointees, top to bottom, and 'nothing' is as plain as a clear summer day.
    Like the wind, you cannot see, or touch, that nothing, but the effects of it can push you where you don't want to go, and cost you a lot of money to repair the damage that nothing can result in.

    Anyway, sarcasm aside, an interesting article, as are all of yours.
    It's a bit mind boggling, in the vein of trying to come to grips with how there is now something, if there was nothing in the first place, from which to derive the something...
    Ouch....makes my simple, public school filled brain hurt...
