Today I'll explain that a light particle has zero mass. Light as its name implies, travels at the speed of light. But if you apply Einstiens' equation which I told you before, anything travelling at the speed of light has infinite mass. But a tiny particle of light couldn't have infinite mass, could it? The only solution is for it to have zero mass.

A particle of light must have zero mass. There is no other solution.

Do you notice anything else strange about this? Can you sat that something of zero mass even exist? What is this particle which is like a dot of nothing? And remember, that light is also a wave. As it's a wave it has a wavelength, which is like the waves width. But if you keep reducing it's wavelength, is there a point where it becomes zero? If it's zero, that's not a wave, is it? However tiny it is a wave has a wavelength. So, the smallest wavelength of a wave of light also has a quantity of zero.

Do you understand? Yes, it's complicated.

The thing is, in the world of the very small zero does have a width. In other words, zero isn't zero. The whole universe is filled with an infinite number of zeroes.

Zero is the basis of everything.

So nothingness isn't the same as meaninglessness.

Nothingness is the basis of everything.

Mountains and rivers, the earth and human beings. Everything is composed of combinations of this nothingness. This would seem to be a true representation of the world.
