The word “Nothing” replacing the word “God” doesn’t cut it for me. I’d just rather leave it blank.

The correspondence between our descriptive and manipulative languages we use to express reality in a form that humans can WORK with (pragmatism) is quite astounding.

But I pay great attention to the “nearly nothing”. Why?

I’m a nearly nothing. An outlier. A statistical blip. Less than a pixel. But I consider myself important to myself. I don’t reduce well, not without a fight. So, much like with dropped variables in an equation, I leave the gaps where they are as gaps. Close them when needed for practical matters but closing them completely is a matter of Faith and I’m not willing to make that leap of faith. I let the gaps stand and I don’t care what’s going through it, if anything at all. The word “Nothing” replacing the word “God” doesn’t cut it for me. I’d just rather leave it blank.
