One of the most difficult concepts for early thinkers to get their heads around was the idea of nothing. Everywhere we go, all our lives, there is something. There is air and matter that surrounds us everywhere because if there weren’t, we wouldn’t be here. Eventually, scientists and philosophers became comfortable with the idea of nothing and were…
