    Let's say there is only one thing that exist and slowly parts of that something go away until we have nothing. Once nothing is around is something achieved/created? The something being "Nothingness"? Because we have went from one extreme which is having something around, to having nothing around.

    So when "Nothingness" is achieved (The moment after the last "Something" has been taken away.) Nothing was created? Can you explain this? Is nothing present right now but being overshadowed by things and once those things are gone we are still have nothing? Is there a link you can direct me to that talks about nothing.lol

    Its simple really. look at light and dark, for example you can create darkness by removing light. but the fact that darkness or "nothing" already existed before light or "Something",means it was only suppressed like shadows or space in a stuffed room.

    I see. Nice analogy. But once we add the light/something to the dark/nothing than is the dark/nothing not altered? It is suppressed right? Or is the dark/nothingness just overpowered by the light/something?

    overpowered or suppressed same meaning. but i guess what you do is restore a void, an absence of "something' as it was originally.

    Nothingness is only a concept and it has no existence in the real world.

    In my opinion:

    Nothingness is always here (N). If you add something (s). It always will be N+s. If you subtract, the minimum you will have is still N. So nothing cant be created, because you begun with N...
