# What would pure nothing behave like? [closed]

By pure, I mean no matter, no light, no spacetime. Absolutely nothing. Assuming that space-time does not get bent due to this, what would be the consequences? My best guess would be that all photons of all wavelengths would be reflected due to them not being able to travel into nothing and thus they just "bounce off" and that matter would just be stopped by the electron shells getting pushed by themselves 'cause electromagnetism would also "bounce off" and thus "push the electron back more as it got closer". The "pure nothing" would be completely unchanging due to nothing in the universe (well apart from maybe black holes) being able to change its state.

Also, would having a lack of spacetime in a certain area cause spacetime to become distorted accordingly? Let me clarify something though, this nothing is simply a lack of spacetime in a specific part of the universe that isn't moving according to a specific reference frame and never accelerates/changes state because it is nothing. It is nothing that is "localised in spacetime by replacing a small section of it".

This question appears to be off-topic. The users who voted to close gave this specific reason:

If this question can be reworded to fit the rules in the help center, please edit the question.

• Nothing? I think that is the answer you are looking for. Jokes aside, I think this is a little broad. Why would space time around a path of nothingness be affected by the nothingness? A better question is, why is your nothing not filled by something? Is this the edge of our universe we are talking about? If it is, and the nothing is unchanging as you have stated, then how does our universe continue to expand? – JDSweetBeat Sep 30 '15 at 15:08
• It would just be what rocks dream about... – Scott Downey Sep 30 '15 at 15:11
• I suppose it'd be like this. – Seth Sep 30 '15 at 15:17
• Hopefully my edit will have cleared up what I mean by "nothing" . ^_^ – god of llamas Sep 30 '15 at 15:55
• You might be interested in Philosophy, it's off-topic here because its not a question of how the "nothing" would impact your world. Note that, even if it were about a fictional world that you are writing about, this question would probably still be closed as "too broad" because the answer would be "it could behave however, you, the writer, wanted it too for your story" – DoubleDouble Sep 30 '15 at 21:39
