This question is too basic; it can be definitively and permanently answered by a single link to a standard internet reference source designed specifically to find that type of information. See the Help Center for guidance on how to improve it.
From the origin of nothing we can see that it's an indefinite pronoun, so the verb needs the -s as it uses the third person.
