I am not entirely sure that we have not yet answered this, I may have
missed somethin    (01)

Following the discussion on holes, the one questrion that I am left
with is  whether
holes are entities as such, or non entities  and    (02)

if so
 whether they would belong to a  ' class of nothing' being
proposed/discussed somewhere earlier on this forum    (03)

It looks to me that they are non entity cause they dont have a mass
that can be measured
I mean an entity is determined by its attributes and properties while
the only property of a hole that we can say is 'absence of energy'    (04)

This is an attempt to bring the hole discussion into the focus of
current ontological question    (05)

apologies if this is trivial    (06)
