nothing is in fact something...it is the state of not having anything....but this paradox is simply discussible by the fact of how this sentence is worded...like someone previously said, if this were in another language, it would not even be a paradox.
If a slice of bread > eternal bliss
and a sandwich > a slice of bread
and a banquet > a sandwich
and a bucket of money > a banquet
and a million dollars > a bucket of money
and peace of mind > a million dollars
and eternal bliss > a million dollars
then eternal bliss > a slice of bread

Perhaps, rather than posting something completely unnecessary, you could actually read through the topic, and maybe you won't be so confused.
Have I posted my answer to this? Bliss all the way, assuming I already had things to eat.

Another example is someone said Peace of Mind>A Million Dollars. That is just an opinion. To some poor person who already has a peace of mind, they might want that a million dollars.
Again, it is all just opinionated.

What is better - eternal bliss or a simple bread? - Back to the Paradoxes
What is better than eternal bliss? Nothing. But a slice of bread is better than nothing. So slice of bread is more than eternal bliss.
Eternal Bliss = Way better than Nothing
Bread = Better than nothing
