Nothing is necessary is an interesting logic derailing expression similar to a Zen koan. Consider the multiple interpretations of this expression. To claim that something is necessary is to claim that it must be. But how can nothing be, in the sense of existence? On the other hand we often use this expression to mean that things that occur could have been different or that what will happen in the future isn’t predetermined.
