    There is nothing to avoid. It is absurd to put a book on a shelf if it is already on the shelf you wish to place it on. The existence of nothing is clearly required. Kant had the idea that our experience of space might someday be found, if only by means of pure logic, to reside only in the mind, like pain or the color red. In a very real sense, there may be nothing behind everything in our experience. We perceive and communicate in the positive so communicating about a part of our experiential world that is inherently positioned in our mental reality in the negative is very difficult to do, and perceiving such things as "nothing" is impossible to do. However, the inability to perceive in a certain way doesn't exclude that which truly exists from being part of our actual reality. For example, the blind cannot perceive by sight but this doesn't mean that there isn't something there that could be seen if they had the ability to do so. I think that most educated and intelligent persons must surely know by now that the world we experience is not the world as it actually is. Therefore, it must be equally clear by now that knowledge of the imperceptible must come by a means other than direct experience through the senses.

    That's science. That which can be sensed.
