My wife asked: "How can motion exist in Nothing?" This is an extraordinary question coming from a person whose passions are far removed from spatial considerations.

In a more general sense, what does motion even mean in Nothing? Remember, Nothing is a Total Void, absent even the Fabric Of Space. How can we know position with absolute Nothing and without Magic? How can we know time? These are fundamental questions.

The short answer is that position and time have no meaning in Nothing. We can't know motion. How then can we ever hope to build the Fabric Of Space when facing this riddle? Indeed, it is the solution to this very riddle that opens the door to building the Fabric Of Space.

Before passing through that door we must first consider 'Something". ThursdayThoughts will explore 'Something' next week.
