What is the world?

  • The world is not nothing; it is something.
  • It is something but it is not only one thing; it is everything.
  • The world is not nothing and it is not only one thing; these are the only two things it is not – it is everything else.
  • If these are the only two things the world is not, then maybe – mustn’t it be – these are the only two things of which the world is made.
  • The world is made of only one thing separated from itself by nothing.
