Hi Russell Standish

Perhaps you can enlighten me.   Can you define "nothing" ?

I follow Descartes, who said that physical entities have extended existence
and nonphysical entities (such as mind or consciousness) have nonextended 
existence.

IMHO A common sense definition of "nothing" would exclude both types of 
existence.

I'm not dimissive of consciousness (ie eliminativist). Have you read
my book?

... I have removed the rest of the thread, as it was a thread about
Elon Musk's hyperloop plan, not TOEs...
