Abstract

Obviously the answer depends on the meaning of ‘zero’. That is whether we mean the word zero or some concept of zero, the number zero or some symbol for zero, the mathematical zero or some philosophical zeroism. As a word for literal description, zero means a person or thing with no importance or independent existence.
