Is your glass half full or half empty?
What is empty anyway? Is something ever really empty? Can a person really ever be empty inside?
Empty is an adjective and verb: empty the garbage, empty the glass, etc.
Going to chemistry for a moment: we are taught that there are atoms, molecules, elements all around us all the time. The air we breath is composed of many elements: oxygen, nitrogen, carbon dioxide, etc.
How can that glass ever really be empty if there are elements in there all the time, even if we can’t see them?
Space is even described as “empty”. Maybe “vast” is a better term. The same chemistry applies even if the same elements don’t exist in the same amounts. Again, how can it be empty?
How can anything be empty? Is anything really ever empty?
Inanis=Latin for “empty”
