A lot of people think of zero(0) as nothing. But I suppose it's just a waypoint on a linear timeline of integers.

Only 4?

1) Nothing: pronoun, the value of a Forbes science article.

How much is Forbes paying you Drew? I'll double it!

Definition 6: Every mistake you didn't know you made, thoughts you didn't read, or when you breathed wrong at the worst possible time.

Example:
"What's wrong dear?"  "Nothing."

Lies! They have not nearly as much Seinfeld parody porn as they make you think.

edmo: A lot of people think of zero(0) as nothing. But I suppose it's just a waypoint on a linear timeline of integers.

In maths 0 or the empty set {} often represents nothing. However a strange thing happens when you look at divisibility of numbers. Here are a few numbers arranged in a lattice with a line connecting two numbers if the lower one evenly divides the upper.

The divisor lattice for all natural numbers would have 0 at the top since any number divides zero (e.g. 0/n = 0)

For a divisor lattice one way to represent numbers is as a directed cycle graph. I.e. here is 6:

Then for 2 numbers the notion "a divides b" becomes there exists a graph homomorphism from b to a.

To fit 0 into this graph representation it isn't the cycle of length 0 (which might be the empty graph) but instead the infinite directed graph that has a starting point but goes on forever with no cycling back to the start.

For this example, 0 isn't a waypoint but is itself the linear timeline of numbers.

So just copying a standard headline is enough for a green light?

I'll just stick with the rifftrax educational short "what is nothing".  One of their best.

As if one is the number of one, and zero is the number of none.

TFA leaves out the Shakespearean definition of nothing.

My bank account?  My dating life for several years?

Ah, almost forgot:

The opposite of 'thing?'

There's that homo-talk we talked about.

My hope for the future?

It's what you are about to become.

It's what everyone's looking at.

It's what you get. Good day sir.

nothing is one of the most interesting topics in science.

How do we know there is more matter than anti-matter in the universe?  How do we know the anti-matter isn't mostly located at the outer edges of the ever expanding universe, constantly being pushed farther and farther away?
