We experience presence and absence, emptiness and fullness of things, events, facts and causes. It is we, human beings, who make statements about things, ourselves and others. Why is there Something instead of Nothing? The obvious answer is there might have been `something', `everything' or `nothing'. Nothingness represents conceptual and numerical zero as empty placeholder in decimal system of mathematics. It also represents vacuum in science where the fluctuating energy in the vacuum is the same thing as the fluctuating amount of the mass as Albert Einstein put it E (energy) = m (mass) c2 (speed of the light squared). Nothingness is a symbol, a concept, and a numeral (0) as a constitutive reality which represents and participates in the wholeness of reality. Reality is both presence and absence, paradoxical and relational as in our direct judgment we say two kinds of things about something: WHAT (essence) it is and THAT (existence) it is but when something is NOT, the concept 0 as a number represents what is `not there'. The numerical zero fills the empty position in the decimal numeration whereas the vacuum points to fullness and wholeness in interdisciplinary disciplines of physical or social sciences.The book is comprised of four chapters. The first chapter deals with the mathematical zero and its philosophical applications. The second chapter deals with the quantum reality and Big Bang cosmology. It deals with the quantum zero and the origin of the Universe. The third chapter deals with the philosophicotheological appraisal of the nothingness. Its linguistic, numerical, physical and inner nothingness is appreciated. The final chapter four provides a general critique and evaluation.Printed Pages: 352.
