nothing is the opposite of itself, young grasshopper...

No.

As long as you see nothing as the opposite of well ... anything, you miss the point.

So, what is nothing?

Rufio said...

then stop trying to define nothing as "what is". instead, define it as "what is not".

utnapistim said...

Rufio, you missed the point ... :)

Rufio said...

... as I always do. i learned to live with that.

ps: up yours, sun tzu :)
you tell us, then. what is nothing?

utnapistim said...

I cannot tell you what nothing is. You either see it, or you don't.

I can tell you this though:
You're looking in the wrong place.

Also, if you think you already know what it is, you're dead wrong.

So, what is it?

Rufio said...

even if i knew, i couldn't tell you...

utnapistim said...

True.

Too bad you don't actually understand that ...

Or do you?

sun tzu :)

Rufio said...

nope, not really :(

i have yet to become nothing in order to understand it, i guess.

utnapistim said...

It's a paradox: you don't have to become nothing you aren't already.

You just have to notice; sooner or later ...
