    Everything begins in nothing and ends in nothing therefore, the only permenant reality is nothing only nothing is real, and it is the only thing of which we cannot speak The only oneness is nothing, distinctions in it, division of it and attempts at individuation within it are the result of our subjective impositions on the oneness of nothing However, does this negation only pave the way for affirmation and thus collapse into contradiction It would seem that nothing cannot be said without being an aspect of something that nothing can only be stated in the terms of and relative to, the concept of something This would render nothing as that which cannot be thought of in itself In this case, we cannot know nothing without knowing something Nothing becomes a claim about something In a sort of transmutational trick of magic to avoid the self negating logic of reason itself we are compelled to turn nothing into something each time we speak of it, address it, try to point to it, look at it, and think of it even when we intend not to so.A claim of existence independent of the subjective observer something is also dependent on the subjective observer nothing so there is no such claim to be made But, does the something have ontological priority over the nothing Must there first be something in order to contemplate nothing Some say yes, but we seem to at least find both something and nothing simultaneously For example, the null set nothing is still a set something Who s to say that something has ontological propriety over nothing It seems that nothing must come prior to something Or, is all this something nothing distinction just a collapse into a new incarnation of dualism To avoid this dualism, everything must start with nothing and we are back to the only one reality being the nothing as stated in the opening sentence of this review It is only nothing that can hold together as oneness without duality or division The something occurs due to our subjective imposition of duality Even life and death is just a subjectively imposed duality Life starts in nothing and returns to nothing All we have is a subjective perception of experience that we must call something, this is surely a weak form of the something What points of reference outside of our perception of a first person experience of existence do we have to validate the so called something in which we live including the perceived something that we are so please to call the self All that we have is a model of abstractions based on our illusions founded upon our perceptions I was once asked the clich question, is the glass half empty or half full to which I replied, there is no glass As the author states, the answer to the question of why there is something rather than nothing might well be that there really is nothing I propose the question be restated as why is the there something when there should be nothing I propose should be because current astrophysics tells us that at the beginning of space time there should have been equal amounts of matter and antimatter produced as a result of the forces at work The matter and antimatter should have self annihilated, leaving nothing I would like to extend the antimatter metaphor of self annihilation Something matter and nothing anti matter collide in the accelerator of nihilism and self annihilate We can see that the confrontation with nothing is the horror of philosophy.

    A really interesting look at philosophers such as Nietzsche, Kant, and Schopenhauer This book focuses much on philosophy itself than the first volume of the trilogy, In the Dust of Planet As a result it s a bit slower reading, but even if you don t have much background in philosophy at all it is still approachable.

    Not as engaging as the first volume but still very interesting if you re into philosophy and the pop culture elements of darkness and horror.

    A study in nihilism and pessimism that is supremely interesting If you like deep introspective study and want to know about the darker side of philosophy as it relates to literature, the books in this series are perfect for you.
