What is nothing?

According to the Mr. Webster, "Nothing is a concept that describes the absence of anything at all." Grammatically, the word "nothing" is an indefinite pronoun--which means that it refers to something. One might argue that "nothing" is a concept, and since concepts are things, the concept of "nothing" itself is a thing.

Confused? Yeah, so am I.

Anyways, I really don't have anything to write about today--nothing at all. Yet, here I am, marrying words into sentences and sentences into paragraphs--an amalgamation of text with "nothing" of note into something we call a "blog post." Hmmm, too bad it's about "nothing."

I'm currently in Indianapolis, Indiana filming a top secret project that I'm supposed to say "nothing" about. So my lips/keyboard is sealed!

Have a great week everyone!

I think your blog is very interesting, thankyou for following me, I obviously returned the favor but not because you followed me. But because I like your blog. I just wanted to address that. Because I think it's so dumb when people follow other people just because they followed them. It's not like it's a big contest who can get the most followers it's who likes your blog. Well this comment is way longer then expected

LOL, that was deep, Ron.

I don't think that there is any such thing as "nothing"

there is always something.

LOL! You're so great Ron. I love the post. Andy Warhol is the master of making something out of nothing. I love the concept.
So Mr. Top Secret, have a fun, fun week, and remember...say nothing...LOL!

Hillbilly Duhn said...

Nothing. I seem to have the knack for talking endlessly with my bff about nothing for long periods of time...LOL! I know this concept well.

Interesting...interesting. A very interesting post about nothing. Who would have thought nothing would be so interesting to read about? Well, this was definitely fun to read. =)

your blog makes me smile. way to make nothing interesting :)

a secret project?!?! haha that's AWESOME! you're so much cooler than us!

DUTA said...

Your post is quite about something, a big Something. You're filming a top secret project and that arouses your readers' imagination and gives food to their thoughts. So there's no nothing in this something.

Dan Denardo said...

Hey, there was a TV show about nothing, now there is a blog post about nothing. Those of us that know you, however, know that you are SOMETHING. Safe travels, my friend.

I never believed you when you told me you're doing top-secret stuff..but now that this post came out, I will take your word.

You still write so well for someone who can't think of anything to write about.
