How should "Emptiness" be defined?

Emptiness is translated from a Sanskrit word "sunyata" and Chinese "空". It actually means everything in this universe is empty of a fixed, unyielding, self-controlling nature. In other word, all matters and phenomena, physical and mental are always in a transient flux, like a running river without stopping for a moment, intertwined, interconnected and interdependent. This is a law of nature and is best represented by Einstein's equation E=MC2 which states that formless energy and matter are transmutable.
