Does nothing exist?
I use to think that everything is balanced by nothing but then i realized that everything is balanced by everything,

Future balances past so the only nothing is the present...

So living for the moment your whole life means you live for nothing...

Juggling words to find meaning can be a tricky pursuit. You say . . .
"Future balances past so the only nothing is the present...'"

In other words, something that has already happened is equal in weight to something that has yet to manifest.
In my mind, the only way that would be true is if we live in an eternal cycle of time that repeats itself endlessly.
This would suggest we live a predetermined existence and that you and I had this same conversation last time we were here. Good stuff jordan..
