Because of the proportionately huge spaces between the wave-particles in the atom, we accept that 99.9% of any object is empty space. If I understand this at all, the 'empty space' to which this refers is nothing, i.e. not a thing. Of course we would like to describe or quantify 'empty space', but there are no qualities of nothing. Things can be described and defined. Nothing cannot be described or defined. There is in nothing no thing to describe or define. This makes it beyond human understanding. This predominance of empty space in the makeup of all things means that every thing is mostly beyond our mental understanding - at least as words can describe. The vast majority of any thing cannot be objectified. Perhaps we should give the empty space more attention than the comparatively tiny 'material' interspersed within the empty space. Giving nothingness more attention may develop a perceiving that is not mental. This may give rise to an understanding inexpressible in words, but nevertheless of great value.
