    I refuse to let this beautiful sentiment go so unacknowledged. It's smart, poetic, and altogether meaningful.
    Or it's nothing. As zero is known for.

    But I much think it's the former.

      Thank you for stopping by and reading about Nothing, Benjamin ☺ Your comment is much appreciated.

        I am sure this is more enigmatic and meaningful than I can discern, but it smacks of cleverness and intrigue.
        It seems the binary code once again infiltrates in your poetic ode to zero and one.

        Bears the stamp of grantianism and holds the binary banner high!

          Yes, that binary One and Zero gnat gnaws at my pome-nerve again, MHenry. I felt inspired to respond to some of Tanner's speculations with a sample of my Woo hoodoo.

          If one cuts a zero (an action symbolised by the letter Q) and straightens it out, one ends up with one. O => Q => ___ => I

          And zero is simply the one turned back on itself. Think snake biting its tail. Ouroboros.

          And here is a profundity (those that have an ear to hear, let them hear): if you wish to turn a piece of spaghetti from an emblem of one into a round nought IT MUST FIRST BE BOILED. That can be both good and bad. And I am mad.

        I love the shape of this one Grant. Not so much the words on the page, but the sense of shape that they inspire in my brain as I read it. Lovely! Is there a "One" to follow? Or perhaps an entire string of numerical masterpieces?

          There's an idea, Rhymist. I've covered Zero with this, and the seismic palaver of 'Nothing and One' already considers the monad. Perhaps Two should come next. If so, I shall have to wait for Two to steal up to me, for if I make any move toward it, it bounds away.

          I like it that the words inspire a shape in your brain, Rhymist. The page is merely a catalyst.

              Lunar glide, this made me think of that Escher graphic of a Moebius strip with ants marching around it ☺

            I've never read something so interesting about nothing. Very clever Grant.

              If we become interested in Nothing, Alexandra, we cannot help but notice the One. ☺

            There is depth and nuance, wherever we care to look, even at nothing, encompassing everything!

              That's poem material emerging right there, Dwayne. The ubiquity of depth: how can we bear it? We must needs hie to the Kardashians for respite.

            I think I like the thought of it as baskketti, cooking it up and put'n some of mamas home made sauce on it. And you gonna like it! I do. Short and saucy, tasty

              I'm liking the sound of that taste, the second!
