This was not calculated, The Nothing is now inevitable
The Scientist

The Nothing, also known as The Blackout or The Black Hole, is the aftermath of The End event in Season X. It was present for 36 hours.


After the Meteor destroyed the rift zone around The Zero Point sphere, it caused the frozen Zero Point's explosion to unfreeze (due to The Scientist stopping the explosion in the beginning of Season X) and created a whirlpool which sucked everything into the Nexus. It then resulted in the Black Hole appearing in the screen. Throughout the duration of The Blackout, numbers appeared around the Black Hole which form a message when matched with the words in Visitor Tapes. The numbers started repeating, 11, 146, 15, 62, 87, 14, 106, 2, 150, 69, 146, 15, 36, 2, 176, 8, 160, 65, 176, 11, 146, 15, 62. When put into comparison by the number of words in all of the Visitor's recordings from the Season 10 Out of Time Challenges, it states "I was not alone, others are outside the loop, this was not calculated, The Nothing is now inevitable". The Blackout ended when the Black Hole exploded and Reality Zero is recreated.
