The Void At The Heart Of Nothingness…

Why is there something, rather than nothing?

Understanding the concept of nothingness is as much a philosophical issue as it is a pragmatic one. We are inhabitants of a universe of somethings, yet reason in a logical universe of existential uncertainties. As a physical manifestation of a logical system, computers are faced with the intractable problem of how to represent nothing with something.
