Does Zero tell you anything ? Yes, zero the number '0'. It sure does tell a lot about mathematics, about computers etc
We all know in this world, everthing is 'relative' and hence nothing is 'absolute'. Whatever we measure, quantify, qualify is with reference to 'something'. How many times have we realised that the 'reference' point is indeed zero, or, to be more precise, that zero is 'THE REFERENCE' point
Think of it, 'success' can be expressed as factor of failure as 'failure of failure' but 'failure' can not be expressed as factor of success. Likewise 'presence' can be expressed by a factor of 'absence' and not the other way around.
The thing zero 'symbolises' is the 'emptiness'/'absence'/'void'. Anything and everything in this world can be expressed from one end of the spectrum to the other. Nonetheless, everything has no meaning but for the existence of 'non-existence'. How ironical.
Having come thus far as to theory of non-existence, what exactly is 'THE REFERENCE' point or 'non-existence' ? is 'non-existence' the ONE & ONLY EXISTENCE ? is that what we seek to realise ? is that what we glorify via multitude of religions ? is that what we all forget ? is that what we all choose to conveniently ignore ?
