Abstract Repartee

What came first, Nothing or Something?
Why, Nothing, of course.
How do you say that?
Because Nothing means Void,
Which is the absence of Creation,
And if Creation were absent,
Then there could only have been Void
At first.

Ah! But if Nothing means
The Absence of Something
Then if Something were not there first
How could it be known to be Absent?

Perhaps, in the beginning there was Void,
But without the awareness of Void
Engendered by Creation
It was merely named Void in retrospect?
For example, I AM alive now
But I was not before I was born
Even though, I could not
Have known I was not alive
Until I was born, and with it
Granted awareness that, in retrospect,
I was not alive before.

It seems sloppy work then,
To merely say,
“In the Beginning there was Nothing”
Instead of “In retrospect, there
Was Nothing in the Beginning”
In any case, what beginning
Could there be, without awareness?
For, are not true beginnings
Begot in awareness?

If Awareness were the sole
Validation for Beginnings
And Creation equaled awareness
Then Void would not have a place
In existence at all
Which it does, as void equals zero
And zero precedes one,
Even without having a value
And yet exists in sequential numbering

No, it does not.


Zero is a number tolerated
Only so it may illustrate
The absence of numbers
But have you ever seen a book
Beginning with Chapter Zero?

Are you saying Void
Does not really exist?

Of course, it exists.
For if Void is the absence of Creation
And if Creation is to be absence of Void
Then one cannot be without the other.
The question posed, was:
What came first, Nothing or Something?

I think it is clear by now
Philosophically and numerically
That if Nothing were to exist at all
And exist it does
It necessarily preceded Something

Ah! But what if, in the Beginning
There was Something, or Creation
Then it was taken away, becoming Nothing
And then the Void were replaced
By Creation once more?

There can be only one conclusion
For this debate, good sir.
Yes? And what is it, pray tell?
That one must never attempt
To search for philosophical enlightenment
Without a cup of tea.

Hi Carole. Sorry for being AWOL. I'm dealing with a lot right now, and as usual when RL gets out of hand, I'm disappearing off the face of the internet. Hopefully, this shall be rectified soon.

I haven't been keeping up with my flist - what's new with you? Everything okay?

And who is the pretty, pretty lady in your icon?

OMG, I so love your icon! Reminds me of a House quote. :p

Well, I'm addicted to internet and should really cut my offline time so... I guess that balances your AWOL-ness. :p

I hope life's treating you smoothly and that' it's not bad things you have to handle. If it is... and you need to vent, talk it out... you know my ears are always available. **hugs & squishes**

Me, well, getting ready and stressed for my first concert with the rockband. job hunting is a full time job and just starting to settle in new home aka still a lot of things to do, including lawyers-notary-admin... And a depressed-overbearing mum. Also a lot to juggle with, as you can see. :p

Pretty lady is my Blip face *link here. Blip = DJ-ing site twin to twitter. Not me, though. Sasha Alexander (Kate on NCIS). I'm really addicted to Blip latelty 'cause it's fun but also 'cause I need it to improve my music knowledge & repertoire. PLus it's very friendly so... :)

How about you? How's life? Studies? Work? Love? How's you, basically? And how's your family? And, do you have news from P? Haven't seen her online lately but... OTOH, I'm also a bit behing in catching up, commenting with each and every single entries of my flist so...

Well, hope all goes well with you and hope to read you soon but, if not, no worries. RL comes first. :p
