thanks! i think buddhist metaphysics are probably the most sophisticated the world has ever seen. it’s remarkable how closely they line up now with what are learning evidentially.

in this diary entry, i wanted to explain (to myself at least) in the simplest terms what being is. i do end up very close to something like sunyata. i think it’s a hard concept for people to grasp without knowing buddhist philosophy, ironically because they’re trying to grasp, to hold onto cognitum.

so i wanted to simplify to the most basic question we can ask about being, are there things or no things. which is of course very close to sunyata’s notion of “emptiness”.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
