“Nothing” (in a philosophy of nothing) is recognized as an empty space, vacuum or empty void. But all these things are, in fact, something (and this usually sounds like an empty meaningless play and mixture with words). But logically speaking there can be no perfect state of nothing that is not in fact something.

Can something be made of nothing?

Something can be created from nothing

And if you define a perfect vacuum in space as nothing, then it seems a compelling presumption that this vacuum could not produce anything. But such a perfect vacuum may not exist. One of the foundations of quantum theory is the Heisenberg uncertainty principle.

Does nothingness exist?

There is no such thing as nothingness, and zero does not exist.

What is it called when nothing exists?

Nothingness” is a philosophical term for the general state of nonexistence, sometimes reified as a domain or dimension into which things pass when they cease to exist or out of which they may come to exist, e.g., in some cultures God is understood to have created the universe ex nihilo, “out of nothing”.

Is there a space with nothing?

When we think of ‘nothing,’ we typically think of a space with nothing in it. A space that has zero particles, no particle at every place where a particle could be. Physicists call this the ‘vacuum state,’ and thanks to quantum mechanics, it has some weird properties.

What is nothing made of?

With no particles or antiparticles, no matter or radiation, no identifiable quanta of any type in your Universe, all you’d have left is the void of empty space itself. To some, that’s the true scientific definition of “nothingness.”

Can the universe create Itself?

“Because there is a law such as gravity, the universe can and will create itself from nothing. Spontaneous creation is the reason there is something rather than nothing, why the universe exists, why we exist,” Hawking writes. “It is not necessary to invoke God to light the blue touch paper and set the universe going.”

Is space completely silent?

OK so wait, is space completely silent or not? While space is more silent than you could ever imagine, it’s not completely devoid of sound. Sound waves cannot travel through space, but there are some infinitesimally small regions where sound can exist, under very specific conditions.

What is space filled with?

Space is usually regarded as being completely empty. But this is not true. The vast gaps between the stars and planets are filled with huge amounts of thinly spread gas and dust. Even the emptiest parts of space contain at least a few hundred atoms or molecules per cubic metre.
