"A zero itself is nothing, but without a zero, you cannot count anything; therefore, a zero is something."~ Dalai lama XIV.
It is obvious from the above quote that zero can work wonders if on the right side. From age of the universe to speed of light, from gravity to relativity, everything is impossible to be calculated without zero. As we know, the world is changing very fast. We are in a digital era and everyday new technology has been emerging in the market. But no matter how advanced technology may grow, at the lowest level of abstraction lies one simple system, i.e. the binary numbering system which utilizes only the numbers 0 and 1 to simulate the state of switches.
With a lot of historical, mathematical and scientific significance, zero has philosophical significance too. Zero holds infinite power and it supports humans to move forward. Zero is not just a number, it is the strongest power on which you can't control. Zero uses its power to push a person in forward or to pull a person in a backward direction. It helps only those who know the value of zero. Zero acts as the starting point from where you decide where you want to go either in a positive direction or negative direction, but it's up to you how far you want to go.
As we know, famous scientist Arthur Eddington used the idea of Albert Einstein's theory of relativity and provided one of the earliest confirmation of general relativity. That means if someone provided his knowledge, wealth or anything to anyone like Einstein did, that would be considered as zero for another person because he is starting his new journey for his future achievements as Eddington became known for his popular exposition and interpretation of the relativity theory. But that zero has larger value because Einstein was the one who initiated the idea of relativity.
It is always said that "Energy can not be created nor destroyed, it can only be transferred" which means till today from cavemen and in future everyone (including animals) give his/her energy to the future generation nothing becomes nill but becomes zero having large amount of energy value for the next generation. As per me this is the only way for the development. Future is infinite at the end of all our developed things we will arrive at the place we began and know it for the first time, as a zero.
