And the decision about these things lies in this: it is or it is not. But it has in fact been decided, as is necessary, to leave the one way unthought and nameless (for it is no true way), but that the other is and is genuine. And how could what is be in the future? How could it come to be? For if it came into being, it is not: nor is it if it is ever going to be in the future. Thus coming to be is extinguished and perishing unheard of. ” However, merely to worry about “nothing” is to miss the generality of Parmenides attack on all coming to be and perishing of whatever it is that is what is (which might, for all mortals know, include the much disrespected void) (Hoy 1994, 576–82).
