Levels of Nothingness

No objects

[whozits and whatzits galore;
and no, you can’t have more—
but you can have less].

No air

[N2, O2, Ar, CO2, Ne, He, CH4, Kr,
and varying levels of wetness, von
Guericke’s vacuum].

No matter

[condensates: fermionic and Bose-
Einstein; solids, liquids, gases
and quark-gluon plasmas].

No particles

[in six Baskin-Robins, six monochromes,
and one god; quantum excitation of
fields predicted by mathematics,
irreducible and exhibiting Poincaré
symmetries—quantized waves in the
qubit ocean].

No radiation

[Gravity Ripples ’n the Swerving
Micetaps; infrasoundultra, seismic;
particular alpha (α), beta (ß), proton &
neutron cosmicomics; electromagnetic:
radio, micro, infrared, Mr. Roy G. Biv,
ultraviolet, X, and gamma (γ)].

No fields

[classical & quantum into the cauldron:
scalars, vectors, tensors, and spinors;
a falling apple, the flux of Gauss,
wrap in Reynold’s to Stoke the flow;
and to be fair—
blow in a drag of D’Alembert;
covariance of Lorentz to bundle
the bubbles, and to tame the strange,
a little pinch of Lagrange].

No force carriers

[weak and last, W & Z of intermediate
vector, heavier than iron; jumbo pack of
crayons, gluons gathering quarks in
paren; photons, 8.3 minutes from the
sun, a tensor product for Fock state; and
generally relativistic geodesic falling].

No vacuum

[cosmological constants, spacetime
curvature, virtual particles flitting into
and out of existence, foundation of
something, angular jittering- pendulum
space points].

No spacetime

[Minkowski manifolds Euclidean or
pseudo-Riemannian, all relativistic
Cartesian points: x, y, z, and t;
dimensions bidirectional and
unidirectional, all gravitomagnetically
warped inertial frames].

No nonphysical

[emergent minds circuitously thinking
about thinking, philosophies outside
spacetime: souls, spirits, ghosts, gods,
demons; other myths, lore, or legends;
abstracta: mathematics, logic, sets,

No possibilities

[nonactual things from possible worlds
popping in unexpectedly, Chaos (always
a priori), modes within or without reality].

. . . . . . . ?


[none of that either].
