I think it's not NaN is Not a Number while 0 is still a number so....0==NaN return false (not a number is not equal to number surely) But I feel kinda strange bc 0 can be false value and NaN can be false value,too 😐 *Experiment*

In some programming languages, it is. But in computation, generally it is not. Its like saying: Nothing is a number Doesn't make sense right? Though you may be saying 0 is technically nothing for a computer or for us, but you can be wrong. One key example is Base Values, lets say that I have a Base2 value, 1001 (its 9 in Base10). If I say that 0 represents nothing, and go remove the 0s to become 11, now that would become a totally different value already isn't it? Not clear enough? 101 is Not 11 10000 is Not 1 Hence, 0 is not empty or nothing.
