At times, I see terms such as unconditional love and unconditional nothing. I'm not a native English speaker so the combination of these terms such as "unconditional" with "love" and "nothing" confused me. I tried looking up on the definition of condition on some online dictionaries such as Wiktionary, and it means : a requirement, a clause in agreement, state or rank if someone used them as a noun.
If the term condition is used as a verb it means : subject to the process of acclimation, subject to different conditions especially as an exercise, to make dependent on a condition to be fulfilled, to place conditions or limitations upon, to shape the behaviour of someone to do something, to treat (the hair) with hair conditioner, to contract; to stipulate; to agree, to test or assay, as silk (to ascertain the proportion of moisture it contains), (US, colleges, transitive) to put under conditions; to require to pass a new examination or to make up a specified study, as a condition of remaining in one's class or in college and finally to impose upon an object those relations or conditions without which knowledge and thought are alleged to be impossible. https://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/condition
Now my question is what does the term "condition" have to do with "love" or "nothing"? Is there a "condition" where love is like that or like this? Similarly, is there a "condition" where nothingness is like that or like this?
If unconditional love actually means never-ending love then the term "never-ending" is much more suitable and certainly more understandable for non-native English speakers, and if unconditional nothing is the same as absolute nothing then using the term "absolute" is much more appropriate than using "unconditional".
