Nothing and randomness are words which point to intellectual
abstractions. People categorize them and associate them in all kinds
of ways for all kinds of purposes. To say that nothing is no-thing
(the thing that is the absence of things) is completely valid, as is
randomness being way of saying that something is determined by
unpredictable and/or unknown causes.
