    Think, `Stephen Hawking`, and there you have it, if you see what I mean.

    Well, let's see. If you can define for us what "nothing" is - you CAN'T - then maybe we can address the question. Is what is inside an empathy glass "nothing"? Is what is deep space "nothing"? Perhaps we can define it as that which a dead brain thinks about - what do you think? Or should we define it as the absence of what we would like to "see"?

    You can't because nothing IS something, which is easily proven. Even if you can imagine a universe or state of existence that contains nothing, that universe or state of existence is still "something".

    Define clearly that "no" means "no" and "thing" means "thing." No x is y = no no-thing is some some-thing. If you choose a von Neumannian second-degree framing of "no thing" = reified null set, simply be cognizant of your or someone's second-degree framing step, lest it become an equivocation.

    Nothing as a concept IS something, so you may find it difficult as it doesn't exist physically in reality
