I do not believe in absolutes of any kind. I treat many things as if they did exist(see last sentence), but deep down I acknowledge everything could be a lie.

No, but there are many things to which I find adding "although I must still consider the epsilon chance of it being false" completely unnecessary. Some of my beliefs--for lack of a better word--may not be believed absolutely, but only epsilon shy of being so. E.g., like gravity will still work tomorrow as it did yesterday.

I realize this is kind of annoying, but fermions don't necessarily stop moving at zero temperature - for the same reason electrons fill up different orbitals in atoms. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fermi_energy


That's quantum mechanics though at things get wonky at that level. Absolute temperatures are most thermodynamics and I don't know whether it stops at the atomic level or sub-atomic level like electrons, protons, and neutrons. Quarks and other quantum particles act weird as you get into string theory and particles like light that act as both a particle and a wave at the same time.

for there to be no absolutes then nothing would be possible or impossible.
