      I've actually tried to do that before, with similiar results. The closest I've got is imagining a clear and colorless landscape with no horizon or point of reference of any kind.

      Weird. I've been thinking about the concept of nothing lately. One of the best ways to feel small and insignificant. How can nothing exist when nothing is still something?

      I could go crazy thinking about it!

      Actually it's a really good way to fall asleep. I find if I meditate on it hardcore my mind eventually goes completely blank and I drift off to sleep!

      I reckon the concept of nothing is one 'thing' (haha) that the human mind can't grasp. No matter how many theories you come up with!!

      I can think of nothing, though only for a short while. It has to be quiet and I can keep myself from allowing any thoughts to roam. It's hard to explain and I can only keep it up for a few seconds before something distracts me, be it something internal or external.

      I once wondered what it would be like to see nothing, not even black or white or anything else. Needless to say, that's hard to picture! I have noticed, though, that it may be similar to what we "see" past the edges of our vision (without turning our heads)--it really is "nothing", not even black (at least, that's how I experience it). Now whether it's possible to "shrink" the visible area in our minds and be left with nothing, I don't know.

      That also reminds me of trying to picture the "edge" of the universe where there's theoretically nothing, not even space. The biggest challenge is trying to imagine that you don't exist.

      You can't picture it, because you can't see it.. You can't experience or comprehend nothingness, let alone imagine what it would be like.

      I guess it would be like sleeping but with no dreams and not waking up.

      That idea is nothing new, Ive thought of that since I was about 5 years old watching the neverending story for the first time. When I saw that movie I thought, how could 'the nothing' swallow something if it is truely 'nothing'. On top of that, I thought, Why is it black? and why does it have a name?

      Anyway, my idea of the essence of 'nothing' isnt earthshattering, but the best way I would think to begin to fathom the idea of 'nothing' is to not even bother trying to imagine it in first place because the moment you start to imagine it gives it substance/meaning, making it a reality and making it more than 'nothing' and into 'something'. Therefore, concentrating more on the idea of NOT realizing it exists is about as close to finding the real definition to 'nothing', as is possible.

      Basically, in summation, nothing is something that cannot even be pictured or brought into the mind or any type of idea, it is, in essence- the anti-thought.

      The thought we can never begin to think.

      nothing is like the point of time when i fall into sleep

      first i can think, and the next moment i wake up (with maybe some dreams between it)...
      but awaking means i have slept, which means i've fallen asleep, but i have no idea of when and how.... that point, where i didn't thought, saw and heard anything, the point where i cant remember anything of... is MY PERSONAL NO-THING!!!



      and i think that you have no idea where i'm talking about.

      and nothing WOULD appear black to humans, because there is not a thing that could send light into your eyes, thus appearing as black...

      I can do it. Black is "There" but I don't see it. I suppose, yeah.

      Blind people know.

      And try thinking everyone has a 6th sence, or an extra pair of eyes. And if you would be missing that exta pair of eyes That is how 'nothing' looks like... like... nothing ^___^
