There is something the dead eat but if the living eat it, they die.
Yes, indeed. Something = Nothing

There is another argument that demonstrates that nothing is something. Does it follow they are really the same? A reader has the following explanation.

It seems to me that the word "nothing" has 2 meanings, that cause trouble when confused: I will define "nothing" as a lack or emptiness. Or, I will define "no thing" as "of all things, none of them". Nothing is a thing, but no thing is not. Thus "A ham sandwich is better than nothing and nothing is better than complete happiness thus a ham sandwich is better than complete happiness" fails because the 2 meanings are confused. It should read: a ham sandwich is better than nothing and no thing is better than complete happiness. The conclusion is now no longer possible.
