The concept of “nothingness” was first introduced by the Vedas during the prehistoric era, which delved into the philosophical and metaphysical inquiries concerning existence and non-being. It probes the essence of existence, the gap, and the absence of being, revealing the nature of all transient and interconnected phenomena.

This theory introduces a profound notion: our perceived reality is merely an endless “library” of temporary realities, ultimately equating to “Nothing” as a collective whole. Paradoxically, everything we perceive arises from this nothingness and goes back into it. The crux lies in understanding how. It is that noumenon from which all phenomena appear and disappear. In this case, nothingness is not distinguished by emptiness since it is the source of everything. Further, in creation, zero serves as a foundational concept for measurement, beginning from its meaning of nothing.

Hence, nothing is something full of possibilities, revealing its actualities on observation and disappearing back into its infinite, spaceless, timeless, and eternal nothing. Simply put, it means all that exists and appears is temporary. So, the ancient Hindu scriptures talk about this idea of nothingness but in a spiritual way. Vedanta philosophy sees nothingness or “Shunyata” as the fundamental absolute beyond any specific forms or ideas, as the ultimate reality. They describe it as a state of total awareness, where a person’s authentic self blends with the universal self into the realm of nothingness.

Today, Quantum physics, also known as quantum mechanics, fundamentally alters our perception of “emptiness.” Classical physics perceives “emptiness” as a total void—devoid of matter, energy, and anything. However, quantum mechanics introduces the notion that something exists even within a pristine vacuum; this phenomenon is commonly termed “quantum fluctuations” or “vacuum fluctuations.” Within the domain of quantum mechanics, the vacuum isn’t devoid of activity but rather brimming with it. Quantum fluctuations represent transitory alterations in the energy levels within a specific point in space. This field is expansive and in a perpetual state of evolution, presenting boundless opportunities for exploration and discovery.


Back to spiritualism, zero is that qualitative factor representing nothing as aware energy because it is unaware of itself. Still, it is that supreme ability of energy to make living things aware and conscious. The quantitative factor on the other end is matter- appearing and disappearing in space and time, revealing nothing permanent in the Universe except the source of aware intelligence. Hindus refer to that as ‘Prajnanam Brahma’ – Intelligence is Divine. You are that aware-conscious energy from which you decode and discover the Universe.

The above implies that in the Universe, there is no beginning nor end; everything begins from nothing and goes back into nothing. Nothingness is that equilibrium that elaborates the infinite, nonlocal Universe in unity and continuity as one whole, with every part interconnected with another, irrespective of its space and time.

It means all phenomena in their independent existence represent nothing, for they are transient. The absolute, unchanging ultimate reality is zero or nothing. It has the quantitative ability to source everything and is the ultimate qualitative solvent in which everything fades. The ultimate is that absolute energy of complete nothing that is indivisible and can neither be created nor destroyed.

It is absolute from all aspects but can let out interchangeable subset energies, like in the forms of matter and consciousness, that appear to disappear back into its fold. The shunya, zero, or that beingness – the ability to recognize, acknowledge, and be known is from spiritual awareness. It means the essence of permanence is nothing, having the ability to create, sustain through awareness, destroy through entropy, and recreate within itself comprising nothing.

Nothingness, even today, confuses science, but the subject of spiritualism in Vedas refers to nothing or zero as the ultimate substrata in which all existences superimpose. The ‘Para Brahman’ is the only ultimate energy that makes living creatures alert, attentive, and aware to experience the life of dualities on Earth consciously. Brahman means to expand with vitality, as does energy, which can vibrate at various frequencies and cycle back to its original state.


So is life. We begin at birth with zero, learn how to experience, and become wise. Sustain for as long as possible with awareness while attempting to renounce ego, desires, identifications, and attachments with spiritual prowess. Meditate to make the mind still in mindfulness, which I suppose points to mindlessness or nothing in the ultimate state of spiritual fulfillment.

It is why the shape of zero is a circle, indicating a cyclical movement of different forms of energy vibration starting from one point and coming back to the same, indicating that death is nothing but the beginning of a new birth. Hence, when I was born, I was nothing, became something to go back into that nothing only to participate in recycling birth and death for that play initiated by aware, conscious energy. NAMASTE
