You’re very welcome. Hamlet’s tortured soul has resonated with many through the centuries and out of respect to Shakespeare’s intent, it seemed just and fair and right to provide my own.

I’m not religious now, but when I was, I was a fan of https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Apophatic_theology – defining something by what it is not.

Sometimes that is the best you can do and perhaps the best one should do in some cases.

A void that is defined ceases to be a void; it becomes a defined space. Delineated, outlined, something you can cover up with concrete or sew up like a hole in the fabric of spacetime.

The anxiety of “void” is a necessity for comprehension; “nothing” has lost its meaning long ago, usurped by mathematics in our societies, replace with zero in basic form, or “null” in a somewhat more esoteric/abstract way.

Nothing has lost much of its power.

But void has kept it, quite well.
