ANYTHING that is empty...still contains space. You can have "no quantities" of ANYTHING....that does not mean you have no quantities of space. There is always space.....you can NOT have NOTHING.....zero is a empty quantity of space....not an empty quantity of nothing.

Zero's real use is as a "point of reference" on a number line.......to "set" bases.....here I agree....
