Zero and Infinity are two intriguing Concepts.
Zero is the absence of everything,yet something.
Infinity is beyond everything and potentially in everything.
Zero,first invented by Indians,was named as Safir in Arabic,then it traveled through Greek,French and finally landed as Zero.
Sunya is the name in Sanskrit for Zero.
Sunya is absence of everything .
This resulted in a lot of arguments among Philosophers of ancient India.
While the Buddhists claimed Sunya as Void,Adi Shankaracharya argues the abscence quality or Attribute itself is a Quality or Attribute.
As such, he states that there can be no Sunya in the Buddhist sense but Sunya is our inability to comprehend the Attributeless and thus the Reality is non dual,Advaita and the Reality is not Sunya as Sunyavadins of Buddhism state.
Be that as it may,
What is origin of the Universe?
This is a very complex and controversial question,which philosophers and scientists have been attempting to answer.
With the advent of Quantum Theory and Particle Physics,it is clear that the Universe we Perceive is not the only Universe in Space Time.
There are many Universes existing in different planes at different levels of Time and Space.
Space and Time,as Immanuel Kant puts it ‘are the two spectacles through which the Human Mind Perceives’.
The Universe which we Perceive is limited by our Concept of Time and Space and even this Concept is conitioned by our Mind ,which is shackled by Space and Time.
More on this in another article.
Now in the Universe we Perceive,we have objects,animate and Inanimate.
As things which are born or begin must die or end according to traditional science,these should have had a beginning , must end.
In that case what was there before the Beginning out of which things have evolved?
Traditional Physics has various Theories ,all of them incomplete .
Quantum Theory seems to have arrived at a Theory that validates Universality of Al Theories and the answer to the question of Constant Motion of the Universe and its dissolution.
Aided by Particle Physics,the answer t o the question as to out of what the Universe was made and what remains ,has been arrived at.
This is the Zero Energy UniverseTheory.
‘The zero-energy universe hypothesis proposes that the total amount of energy in the universe is exactly zero: its amount of positive energy in the form of matter is exactly canceled out by its negative energy in the form of gravity.

1: Om, That (Outer World) is Purna (Full with Divine Consciousness); This (Inner World) is also Purna (Full with Divine Consciousness); From Purna comes Purna (From the Fullness of Divine Consciousness the World is manifested) ,
2: Taking Purna from Purna, Purna Indeed Remains (Because Divine Consciousness is Non-Dual and Infinite).
A generic property of inflation is the balancing of the negative gravitational energy, within the inflating region, with the positive energy of the inflaton field to yield a post-inflationary universe with negligible or zero energy density.. it is this balancing of the total universal energy budget that enables the open-ended growth possible with inflation; during inflation, energy flows from the gravitational field (or geometry) to the inflation field—the total gravitational energy decreases (i.e. becomes more negative) and the total inflation energy increases (becomes more positive). But the respective energy densities remain constant and opposite since the region is inflating. Consequently, inflation explains the otherwise curious cancellation of matter and gravitational energy on cosmological scales, which is consistent with astronomical observations…
The oldest Literature of the world The Rig Veda ,one of the four Vedas,the Religious Text of Hinus stztes this principle in Nasadiya Suktha.
Now Zero when added to other numbers,those Numbers’ Value changes ,yet Zero never changes.
- And the Concept of Full is as complete or as incomplete as Zero.
- Zero is Infinity?
- Both are devoid of Attributes ,beyond Attributes like Brahman,the Reality.
