In history, we ask

  • How was nothing and emptiness dealt with through the ages?
  • Is zero nothing?
  • In the Middle Ages why was Muslim Europe so much more advanced than Christian Europe?
  • Why did the Church hate nothing?

In art, we ask:

  • Why is nothing so important in modern art?
  • The question of questions: What is art? (and what has that to do with nothing?)

For religion, we ask:

  • Why is nothing so important for all religions and beliefs?
  • What is the difference between nothing in monotheistic religions and eastern beliefs?

For science, we ask:

  • How did something come from nothing?

For musing, we discuss:

  • the difference between nothing (the absence of everything) and nothingness (the absence of something)
  • the “nothing gene”

and we ask:

  • Is nothing something?

and lots, lots more…








For the past five years I’ve been thinking seriously about nothing. Before that I had time to think about something, having an M.A. in Linguistics with post graduate studies in linguistics and philosophy at Oxford University.As a university lecturer and ESL teacher, I have lectured and given workshops in Europe, North and South America and the Middle East on linguistics, ESL and the use of the Internet in education.

I have had 13 ESL books published. My short stories have been published in Nuvein magazine, Tryst, Aesthetica, the Sink and Unholy Biscuit.

I have completed a philosophical novel, “Outside In” and co-authored a psychological thriller, “Mind…the shattered gap”, with strong philosophical underpinnings.  My next non-fiction book is about time and is tentatively titled “The Now Delusion”.
