Any possible entity, whether concrete or abstract, exists only in our minds. In addition, our mind can create entities from nowhere (e.g. a gift, the infinite number, a consequence, a hole, a set of pending tasks). Nothing is just a mental entity representing an idea, the idea of the lack of entities.
Can nothing be considered something?
“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.
What entity means?
Definition of entity
1a : being, existence especially : independent, separate, or self-contained existence. b : the existence of a thing as contrasted with its attributes. 2 : something that has separate and distinct existence and objective or conceptual reality.

What is true nothingness?
What does this mean? Well, it means at least no objects (this table, etc.), no properties (it’s being made of wood, etc.), as well as no facts (the fact that it’s a table made of wood, etc). None of that sort of stuff. It also means nothing coming into existence, nothing existing, and nothing going out of existence.
Who created nothing?
Parmenides. One of the earliest Western philosophers to consider nothing as a concept was Parmenides (5th century BC), who was a Greek philosopher of the monist school.
How does nothing exist?
Even at its lowest energy level, there are fluctuations in the quantum vacuum of the Universe. There are quantum particles popping into and out of existence throughout the Universe. There’s nothing, then pop, something, and then the particles collide and you’re left with nothing again.
Is nothingness impossible?
Therefore absolute nothingness is impossible. One moer point “nothingness” means “there not being anything (not something)”, and “be (being)” means “existence”, which according to your definition is an attribute – and an attribute can only be an attribute of something (anything).

The absence of things, nothing, has no color because it’s not something you can see and color is only seen.
Can non existence exist?
Nonexistence is the absence of existence, by definition. So, nonexistence does not exist. Therefore there is no such thing as nonexistence. To say that something does not exist thus seems to be a fallacy, since NOTHING does not exist.
What does nothingness look like?
In an area of nothingness, there is the absence of anything to emit any light (or anything else) and the absence of anything that changes the color of any light (or anything else) passing through it. In short, absolute nothingness would look like, well, nothing.
What is nothing in the universe?
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.”
What is it to see nothing?
They see nothing. It is called NLP (No Light of Perception). For the people who can see naturally without making any conscious effort, the concept of being able to see nothing can be a very profound concept to grasp.
