Absence And Presence
Digital Art - Digital Collage
Question: Why is there something rather than nothing?–Martin Heidegger, philosopher
Answer: If there were nothing you’d still be complaining!–Sidney Morgenbesser, Columbia University professor of philosophy
For thousands of years, philosophers have hotly debated the presence of absence and the absence of presence, and the existence of both.
Philosophy has composed a kaleidoscopic collage of theories about being and nothingness throughout the centuries. None of these explanatory effort has satisfied everyone, and so philosophy continues to search for answers.
The mystery of our existence invites speculation about it from each of us; so does non-existence. To be or not to be still is the question. So ask yourself, as honestly as you can: if there were nothing, would you still be complaining?
