 The numbers are not the thing.  Didn't you know that?  I guess not!

I always knew that.  Because -that's life.  Life is the thing.  Everything that is part of life, is not nothing.

So, zero is not nothing - it is just holding a place, just as important as 9 or 4 or 1 - it holds the place.  

Even nothing is not nothing.  There is no nothing.  

Nothing means space is holding a place.

Because when something leaves, the hole left behind is not nothing.

It is the lack of what was there.

Kind of like when a person dies.

There is a hole.

Not nothing.

A hole where the person was.

When you realize how much the person meant to you.  How you didn't appreciate the person when they were there.

How you took that person for granted - how the hole was there before they left.

And now, you wish you could go back and appreciate.

But you can't  - because that's death.

And even death is not nothing.  Death is just another placeholder.

Waiting for the way to make the empty full again.

And when that happens, that's life.
