Nor will it ever exist.
This index page (which does not exist), is about everything non-existent. Beyond the veil of our perceived reality lies the great void of non-existence. Largely, it is science fiction that employs these tropes, as it is a common and popular theme is to bring into question whether or not our reality is really real.
Non-existence or 'nothing' can be used as a force in its own right, to build suspense, drama or used as a break from material things such as bright colors or loud noises. Negative Space or a vacuum is a good narrative tool for painting the boundaries for situations or to isolate worlds or characters. Things that don't exist can major points of interest in many genres and mediums.
