Nothing is something?

“In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. Now the earth was formless and empty, darkness was over the surface of the deep, and the Spirit of God was hovering over the waters.” ( Bible Genesis 1:1-2 )

“Formless and empty “and “darkness” before the Creation of the heavens and earth. I think it is quite a remarkable observation about teh time  before the Creation, remarcable as it was written down maybe 4000 years ago. What does the Scientific world say about nothng and about “before Big Bang”?

I  wrote about Big Bang

 Now I found a new video about nothing from the Science festival.


Someone may think that we have almost vacuum in between the galaxies where we have almost absolute zero (0 Kelvin = -273.15 C).  But not. There is plasma everywhere, even there. I wrote about it  some time ago in . This video doesnt mention plasmasphere but it is intresting anyway.

John Barrow

Some notes I made looking at this video.

How can nothing be something?

The history of nothing

The greeks didnt allow zero as a number in their counting system as it would be in contradiction with their philosophy.

450bc atomists like Democritos “Univese – a infinite void filled with small particles”

350 bc Aristoteles “there could not be void” “All motions was possible with contacts between things” Vacuum could not really be realized” “nothing could come from nothing” “There is never vacuum”

Stoic view “extracosmic void beyond the boundary of Universe”

Teologians. Vacuum is undesirable, rejected by God where God is not.

Modern Physics vacuum

So vacuum is not absolutely nothing.  Vacuum can change with time have have different energy states of particle interactions, of radiation or magnetism.

“a landscape of possible energies a system (vacuum) could reside in “

Quantum picture of vacuum


Only some frequencies can reside in between the plates

Like in between two boats that are  less than 70 meters away fom each other and slowly crash with each other due of the wave forces from outside.

casimir plates effect

the relative plus force outside the plates makes the plates approach each other. Read more in

Nothing before the Big Bang?

George Ellis said something like this in the video linked below: Even if there is no before Big Bang as there was no time, one could say that there were rules  and structure before the Big Bang happened.
(SOurce: )

As it is said in the Bible:

In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was with God in the beginning. Through him all things were made; without him nothing was made that has been made. (John 1:1-3 )

n Spanish “Word” has been translated to “Verb” like the tetragrammaton (JHWH) is translated to “To be” by the Witnesses of Jehovah.
