Can something be made 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.
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.”
Does nothingness exist?
There is no such thing as nothingness, and zero does not exist.
Does something have to be created in order to exist?
Originally Answered: Is there something that exists without being created? It depends on what you mean by ‘created’. Normally creation requires a creator. So in the human domain things are created, generally by taking earlier ideas and either upgrading them or have a radical new idea derived from some earlier idea.
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.
Who created the world?
According to Christian belief, God created the universe. There are two stories of how God created it which are found at the beginning of the book of Genesis in the Bible. Some Christians regard Genesis 1 and Genesis 2 as two totally separate stories that have a similar meaning.
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.
What is nothing scientifically?
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 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.
Who created the God?
We ask, “If all things have a creator, then who created God?” Actually, only created things have a creator, so it’s improper to lump God with his creation. God has revealed himself to us in the Bible as having always existed. Atheists counter that there is no reason to assume the universe was created.
What color is nothingness?
The absence of things, nothing, has no color because it’s not something you can see and color is only seen.
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.
How do I know I exist?
How do you really know you exist in his meditations on First Philosophy Rene Descartes tried to answer that very question demolishing all his preconceived notions.
Does time exist in empty space?
If the vacuum exists, time absolutely exists as well. For example, if the vacuum were to exist near a source of radiation, particles. They could enter the given vacuum as time passes by so time absolutely exists.
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.
Why is there something rather then nothing?
Leibniz thought that the fact that there is something and not nothing requires an explanation. The explanation he gave was that God wanted to create a universe – the best one possible – which makes God the simple reason that there is something rather than nothing.
What is nothing made of?
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.
Is nothing considered a being?
Nothing, taken in its immediacy, shows itself as affirmative, as being; for according to its nature it is the same as being. Nothing is thought of, imagined, spoken of, and therefore it is; in the thinking, imagining, speaking and so on, nothing has its being.
What is absolute nothingness?
Nothingness is the absence of anything. Absolute nothingness is the absence of absolutely everything. Only a human would be stupid enough to find the concept interesting.
Why is the color of nothing black?
Black is a color defined by the absence of light. In additive color mixing (light), black is zero visible light.
What is qua being?
So Aristotle’s study does not concern some recondite subject matter known as ‘being qua being’. Rather it is a study of being, or better, of beings—of things that can be said to be—that studies them in a particular way: as beings, in so far as they are beings.
What is Aristotle’s theory of reality?
Even though Aristotle termed reality as concrete, he stated that reality does not make sense or exist until the mind process it. Therefore truth is dependent upon a person’s mind and external factors. According to Aristotle, things are seen as taking course and will eventually come to a stop when potential is reached.
What is meant by epistemology?
epistemology, the philosophical study of the nature, origin, and limits of human knowledge. The term is derived from the Greek epistēmē (“knowledge”) and logos (“reason”), and accordingly the field is sometimes referred to as the theory of knowledge.
