Creation from nothing is not an oxymoron. Creation from nothing is inherent in the very nature of creation. But what exactly is nothing? Creation is an action designed to prove that some thing exists which did not exist before. Thus creation in this sense implies a time stream. If there is time then creation does not take place against a completely zero background. Still there was a relative zero, a no thing.
Remember what you read about quantum physics? Waves of probability that do not exist except in the calculations. Thus we could say—amongst us non-mathematicians—that there was nothing.
Creation from nothing, starts to make sense if we take into account the nature of the ‘no thing’. A thing is a contained entity, it has definition and identity and it stands out. The whole concept becomes clear at once when we adopt the following definition of creation:
Creation is the act of selecting and pressing the right keys on the infinite probability keyboard to produce the desired tune–the THING.
You may have to read up on Quantum Physics to appreciate this view. One could put it differently and still get the same result if one defines creation as the act of composing. In this case the tones of many octaves are available, it is then the act of selecting these in a certain pattern that creates the something, the concerto or whatever it will be. Even a cacaphony is something.
And there again we showed that creation from nothing, is not unreasonable after all. In closing I express the utmost respect and gratitude for those men and women who gave us the alphabeth, which allowed me to freely choose the letters and letter combinations I needed to express my thoughts and create this brief article.
