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.If this question can be reworded to fit the rules in the help center, please edit the question.
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.
