An Exercise in "nothing" semantics. I apologize for not being able to include the responses, in fact my computer is moving so slowly that I'm not going to be able to copy the exact original post. The point was this: If you take a sentence, where the word "nothing" is used, and replace "nothing" with "not anything", the result gives the same meaning as the original, but it doesn't allow for foolish contemplation of what "nothing" is. An example would be... "The universe is expanding into nothing" = "The universe is not expanding into anything". The same meaning, and yet it eliminates the need for poinless debates about the "nothing" that the universe is expanding into.
