    We start, then, with nothing, pure zero. But this is not the nothing of negation. For not means other than, and other is merely a synonym of the ordinal numeral second. As such it implies a first; while the present pure zero is prior to every first. The nothing of negation is the nothing of death, which comes second to, or after, everything. But this pure zero is the nothing of not having been born. There is no individual thing, no compulsion, outward nor inward, no law. It is the germinal nothing, in which the whole universe is involved or foreshadowed. As such, it is absolutely undefined and unlimited possibility -- boundless possibility. There is no compulsion and no law. It is boundless freedom.

    I still prefer Nike, but many of my favorite current athletes say "Impossible is nothing."

    Isn't that what we do around here? Some of the best threads here have been about nothing! One of the most popular sitcoms of the 90s, Seinfeld, was about nothing. Friedrich Nietzsche and an entire philosophical movement is about Nothing. Nothing IS something! It's nothing!
