Consider this: a room devoid of furniture or other objects or creatures with only the sound of a favorite song in the air. I dare say you would think This room is empty. But is it?
Music, having the properties of sound waves, is not a tactile material object. You can't see it or touch it.
So, is a room empty if music fills the air? Such a paradoxical riddle can provide sublime contemplation if you let it.
