Question for Bill Nye

Big Think, an American think tank, invites readers to send in videotaped questions to Bill Nye.  I sent in my question yesterday about how the Greeks viewed the number zero- how they didn't want to adopt it, even though it could have helped them in their math and science, because of what it represented- the void, nothingness, extinction.  I reference Charles Seife's book, Zero: A Biography of a Dangerous Idea, a book I've blogged about on here before. 

As I equate the void with the feminine (in the Jungian sense), I wonder if scientists are really all that comfortable with it, even in 2015.  I'd like to see it being fully embraced as an equally powerful player in science's ontology- its way of knowing truth. 

The video is just over 2 minutes, and you need your volume up.
