That philosophical mindwank.

Well put. Pedantic semantics, I'd call it.

If you can understand the concept of 'zero' as representing 'nothing', then you can understand that you can get 'nothing' from combining equal amounts of positive 'something' and negative 'something'.

It therefore stands that you can get equal amounts of positive and negative 'something' out of 'nothing'. Seems perfectly intuitive to me.
