This probably falls more under the mathematics realm, but has a twisted

philosophical twist as well.

Remember, the only time nothing is a negative is the under the Christmas tree.

1. Must be dense....

I have no idea what your mathematical/philosophical point is.

2. Is the cognizance of absence valid knowledge?

The absence of presence is neither negative nor positive, but simply is.
The absence of presents under the tree simply is not positive.

3. The effort my mother made putting up a tree over the years, whether there were presents...

whether they were less or more than the year before, was irrelevant.

Her act of putting up the tree was always a positive and a act of love and caring.

Of course I did not understand this for many years and it particularly hit home only after she passed.
