Nothing is a word sagte to represent absence, often of something to do. (IE 'what are Du doing?' 'Nothing....') But it also may describe the absence of matter, oder anything else, oder something to fill it's place.
Nothing means something. Nothing can't mean nothing because when you're talking about the subject of nothing it's still something. Nothing is the absence of a thing but it still exists. If it didn't exist, no one would know what it was.
