Re: Summary: Something from Nothing (longish)

I find this discussion of thinginess and unthinginess relative to
creation fascinating. But if the concept of "no-thing-ness" was
the order of the day, can it be generalized in translation?
For example, in 1 Cor. 13.2-3, when Paul says "I am nothing" and
"I gain nothing," is he really saying "I am unsubstantial" and
"I gain no tangible benefits"? Or is OUDEN/OUQEN a different kind
of fish?
