← Afterword from Lawrence Krauss' New Book - A Universe From Nothing

I watched the video lecture and it was interesting, so I'll probably get the book if I found it.

One thing I don't understand: The "nothing" Krauss talks about is the "quantum vacuum"? Because I'm under the impression that this vacuum, althout void of particles, has a rich structure, various properties and its energy fluctuations obey certain (statistical) laws. It's just the state of lowest possible energy. It is void of one specific element of nature(particles), but it contains other elements. Am I right in this, or I got something wrong?
