Nothing is the most meaningless expression or thought that there is!

And it is probably expressed more than anything else.

But the word does not have a meaning.

Because!...There is always something....even though it may not be perceivable.

something doesn't dissolve into nothing.....something always dissolve back into that something from which it came & which it always forever is.

That...something....is the one thing that can't be imagined.

That something is what no word, expression, thought, sensation, idea, concept, dream, nightmare, illusion, hallucination, drug, trip, fantasy, mirage can describe, immulate, imitate, create, articulate, deviate, situate or imagine....did I use imagine once before, Oh Well. Laughing

Peace!

I have a goose egg stuck in a bottle.

Perhaps you could help me with that?

Hi toombaru, I really enjoy your 'pithyness'.

As to the question, what do you want:

a) the egg and a broken bottle
b) the bottle and a broken egg
c) the egg inside the bottle
d) the egg outside the bottle
f) some of the above
e) all of the above
f) none of the above

...it's yours Shocked

But you don't need 'me' to tell 'you' this Very Happy

Love

Hi Michael,

This is a zen story.

The student is told that there is a goose egg stuck in a bottle and he has to figure out how to remove it before the egg hatches.

He offers.....over an extended period of time ....many possible solutions to the dilemma.

All of which are rejected by the master.

The student collapses in complete frustration and mental exhaustion..... the teacher takes pity on him and says:

"Ok...............you bring the goose egg and bottle to me....and I will show you what has to be done."




In a flash of insight.........the student realizes that there never was a goose egg stuck in a bottle.

The 'problem' only existed in his mind.



toombaru


ps............. I enjoy your presence immensely.

Hi Toombaru, thanks for the reminder... I do now recall the story.

And the answer remains:

It expresses that all possibilities are available to be experienced this instant. And 'none of the above' is like the Zen story... a reminder that all possibilities are after all 'creations' of Consciousness (even the 'individual mind')... they have no fundamental (ie 'beneath mental' Very Happy ) reality in themselves.

'none of the above' is the best description of this that one is Cool

Love
