When you ask someone what is the matter and when they respond “it’s nothing”, it generally means something. If it means something then surely nothing is not nothing. If nothing is not nothing then nothing is something and therefore on this premise we can argue that something is nothing. And if we are to argue this case, how can something be nothing as something by very nature of its description is understood as something tangible. Therefore if something is tangible then surely something cannot be nothing. We could be here debating till cows come home but the fact of the matter is; Is nothing really not nothing?
When you next ask someone what is the matter and if they say it’s nothing, ask yourself do they really mean nothing or is nothing the something. If nothing is something then nothing really cannot be nothing and therefore we conclude nothing is not nothing as it is something.
We say there is nothing in the air which is not entirely true as there are sub-atomic level particles not visible to naked eyes which cannot be classed as nothing. Figuratively speaking it is true that nothing really is nothing but hypothetically and scientifically speaking nothing can never be nothing.
I know some of you reading this may feel, what is this all about and frankly who cares whilst at the same time others may consider, a debate worth discussing. Anyway it is my own view really what I think and how I perceive nothing to be. I leave it upto you to draw your own conclusion.
