    The Thread About Nothing - Big Words Only(or slang)

    Shall we partake in a verbal deliberation on the topic of nothing whilst indulging in the English Vernacular?

    Can you prove that nothing exists?

    Oops, missed the rule in the topic title.

    Can one ascertain that nothing, in essence, possesses material presence, or more fundamentally, plays a substantive role in the material universe?

    Let us not deliberate over the enunciation of such words in the english vernacular as those that fall in the slang catagory shall we?

    Doesn't the mere notion of the word lend hand to its actuality?

    Outstanding! May I ammend the guidelines of our correspondence in the confines of this thread. Lest not we disregard our common phraseology in the midst of all this lavish vocalization.

    Translation: NEW RULES - LETS TALK SUM S**T, SLANG OR BIG WORDS ONLY

    you down?

    While the notion may connote a particularly credible logical construct, how might such be construed in terms of the ubiquitous material presence cognated and conglomerated throughout the cognizable universe? In itself, it seems apparent to be merely a cognitive ideal, rather than an objective reality. And while such might endure purely theoretical speculation and manipulation, can it be demonstrated in adamantine indisputability that nothing contains absolute material or symbolic significance worthy of discourse to philosophers or theoreticians deigning to unravel its manifold implications toward the theological, philosophical, scientific, and secular perspectives of rational individual residents of the multiverse?

    And, in addition, actuality may merely exist as a (potentially) rational construct of an individual organism in response to its sensory apparatus, notwithstanding the concept that such may be indeterminate in any absolute sense due to the vagaries and inconsistencies inherent in such prejudicial inclinations practically demanded in the manner of observation and reaction present in the multifold biological systems of said organisms. Recognition of this critical flaw of perspective seems to me to lend credibility to the idea that nothing may not be demonstrable in a practical and rational physical absolute, but may only prove useful in an elusive and parapsychological context, of merit only to mystics and tarot-reading ufologists.

    Egad! That is another intriguing and fertile discussion altogether. The concept of religion is apparently something fundamental to aboriginal people the world over, and can transport with surprising longevity into a culture's intellectual maturation, which is actually quite startling in itself, as these transpositions of metaphorical concepts into literal dogma are inclined against the selfsame intellectual and cultural development of such a population. I shan't perhaps verbalize at length roundabout such a topic, since it appears to exist somewhat outside the well-defined boundaries delineated at the initiation of this discourse, and such soliloquy could only serve to distract and deconcentrate what might become an enjoyable and focused dissertation and elucidation of meritorious information for all bystanders, onlookers, and readers.

    As for offence, I can only assume that you are referring to a lexical equivalent of what resides within my ken as offense, or some hopefully similar denotation about which we can align our thoughts in harmonious union. I do not hesistate to articulate that I do not indeed feel any offense toward your interjection and somewhat abrupt interrogative, which though lacking in proper punctuation and grammatical constructs, might still be understood and interpreted as hostile, aggressive, and made with less than noble intent. I leap forward to present the visualization that such understanding and interpretation is not, however, the method I should choose to react, absorb, interpret, and respond to your curt assertation and exhortation, but rather that of kindliness and friendship that perhaps it might possibly have been originally intended. I hope that this admittedly curt clarification finds harmony with your thoughts on the matter at hand and does not aspire to confuse, misconstrue, or obfuscate my motivations concerning same. Regards.

    Zel,

    to post 1 (notion) - are you implying that the word nothing and its meaning, is a parodox in itself. That the definition of nothing actually contradicts its own existence. Therefore - nothing cannot exist. So, everything is something, even nothing.

    to post 2 - Yes, the critical 'flaw of perspective', a very notable concept. Its true, we each view reality through our own individual lens or filter. So, one person's nothing may very well be another's something.

    post 3 - As far as digressing from said subject matter,which is nothing. Are we not harmonious in our collaboration that nothing does not exist? Consequently, redifining the periphery of our topic to encompass, well, everything.

    Hmm, it seems that nothing, in essence, has metamorphasised to reveal its true nature. Can we conclude that nothing, all the while was really masquerading as its exact counterpart? Is it fair to say that nothing is really everything?
