That seems to be an uncertain, possibly corrupt, passage, as I've found two other versions of it. The one that makes the most sense is this. I don't know if it's original or an editor's emendation.

If we're to interpret your version, however, you're basically correct regarding its meaning. Nihil would be repeated for emphasis.
