a pronoun denoting the absence of anything. Nothing is a pronoun associated with nothingness.In nontechnical uses, nothing denotes things lacking importance, interest, value, relevance, or significance. Nothingness is the state of being nothing, the state of nonexistence of anything, or the property of having nothing.
so nothing has no properties, is the absence of anything, and has therefore no potentialities. It cannot produce something, because it is the total absence of any thing.
