    Is totally empty space a non physical phenomena?

    I just had an odd conversation on HP in regards to the impossibility of proving that a non physical phenomena can be believed in. This was in reference to God being non physical hence impossible to prove.

    One would have to prove, at least theoretically, the existence of empty space or nothingness. This accomplishment is not yet within our reach and it is quite possible that nothingness, just does not exist.
    You can believe anything though. You can believe a goat is a cow or that life is only an illusion. If you wish to believe in a being who lacks substance, then for you it is true, but at the same time your belief lacks truth.

      The whole point is that we of course know empty space exists without being able to prove it as it is a truism.

      No, of course, you do not know that nothingness exists. You believe it exists.
      What does 'empty space' mean? Please define.

      The question is: is it non physical.
      Other discussion is beyond the scope of this question page.

      The question is not beyond the scope of the question page if the question begs an answer to it before it can be addressed. How can anyone say anything about whether or not "empty space" is physical if we don't even know what empty space is?

      I am saying empty space is real and non physical. Also time, math etc

    I do not know the details, but these days physicists believe that, at the quantum level, empty space is impossible; virtual particles come in and out of existence for very, very short lengths of time. This is about as close to nothingness as you can get.

      Of necessity any particle is "housed" in empty non physical space.

    "Empty space" really isn't empty at all.  I'm sure you're aware of the "quantum foam" that permeates all of spacetime, but it's worth doing some reading (and maybe writing) about.

      I am aware of certain theories: but are they describing "non physical" phenomena.

      "Non physical" phenomena might also be called "not real."

      But empty space is real. So is gravity and math and time etc
