All rivers flow into themselves.

What is a river?

You see the water snaking its way through the landscape and think that what you see is a river, as though it has some independant existence.

What river flows without its bottom, banks and falling land? Can you conceive of such a thing?

What river flows without rain or snow to feed it?

What rain and snow falls that is not first vapour?

From where comes the vapour without lakes and oceans and the sun to vaporise it? And atmosphere to carry and condense it.

And from whence the water but in the chemical reactions that combined hydrogen and oxygen in 'ages past'.

And whereof are these elements derived but in the beginnings of the new born universe. (metaphorically speaking Very Happy )

As Carl Sagan is famously quoted as saying:

To make an 'apple pie', first create the universe.

The river exists as a 'separate thing' only as a label applied to specific sensations (the colour and form and taste and sound and feel and smell)... named: 'flowing water'.

As all things... even 'universes' Very Happy

No 'separate thing' exists but in idea. Indeed, no 'thing' exists at all but as a conception... the conception of God Cool

Love

Daddy, what is 'conception'?

Ask your mother Cool
