Does Nothing Exist? If nothing does not exist, then how can it exist? We are talking about “nothing” as a concept, which essentially means, there ain’t nothin’ there. The spiritual meaning which is what my nickname Mofwoofoo means, is that Mofwoofoo means nothing, existential nothing, the nothing beyond your imagination. This might be the nothing we are talking about. Can there be more than one nothing? We can leave that for later.
In this materialistic world “nothing” is totally unappreciated, and is often considered valueless. Maybe this is why people like to think that they are something. I prefer to be nothing. It’s a lot easier, lighter, lighter hearted. Lets leave “form” for another discussion as I would rather talk about nothing.
Perhaps we are only here to deal with existential paradoxes and conundrums or how we have to live with oxymorons and just plain oafish or “oxy” morons (just a joke, nothing personal). Along with having to accept the unacceptable everyday of our lives, like war, poverty, corruption ad infinitum.
No wonder some people find life a bit tough, along with the constant need to be in the flow with money and the necessity to stay healthy, etc., etc.! I should tell you that my previous title was Bagelhole1. I have been thinking about nothing for years and without the need to meditate. I think the key to the Universe might be nothingness that is, the space inside the bagel, the hole. One must pass through the bagelhole if one hopes to attain “nothingness”.
I can imagine that if I was God, I might wonder how come I exist amongst all this nothingness, maybe being God, I would know the answer. And perhaps just to create some meaning out of all this nothingness, I conjured up a diversion that would still maintain the nothingness by creating illusions that didn’t really exist but seemed to. So, I as God created an incredibly elaborate illusion to give purpose to the dimension of time and space, which was just one of the infinite dimensions that I imagined, and time and space without objects both living and/or dead, with “consciousness” being allowed for the living, which included the ability to self reflect and to choose to be ethical for the human species, was necessary to avoid the whole Universe being merely a ghost town with lots of spinning and spiraling, but with absolutely no relevance. That takes us to; Do illusions exist? And the fog deepens.
Everything then could be a simulation and we are avatars or game players. And just like in a dream, you can feel things as though solid, but it seems you never actually get hurt or die, but in our non dreaming state, we have those features because of its dualistic and 3D parameters with the added feature that we can feel, hurt, and die, which definitely adds a dimension to the whole illusion.
Imagine vast empty spaces with nothing, but really if there is empty space with nothing in it, would there really be space? Does space need something in it to exist? Space being the same as “nothing”. Imagine one particle floating in an empty space that goes out infinitely in every possible direction. The particle brings meaning to the vast nothingness. Without the particle it would be an infinite meaningless nothingness, which would be possibly the largest amount of nothingness ever not known.
Now imagine space as a place where space is available. Available for anything. We live in this dimension, where “things” seem to exist. Even though we may reduce ourselves to being only “awareness”, we still enjoy or endure the thingyness that we experience in this dimension. So when there is no time or space, there would also be no nothingness, or so it seems logically.
What would there be then? Another dimension beyond our comprehension and perhaps beyond our ability to even imagine. What would that be? Could it be a nothingness without nothing? Is it really beyond our imagination? But how is that possible? Our imagination has no limits. So, perhaps it is just something that no one has yet imagined. I hope you don’t feel empty after reading this.
