  1. Firstly, there is always something there in the field of something and there is nothing there in the field of nothing. Perhaps we’ve all heard the question, “Is it half empty or half full?” If you focus on the more visible part, you’ll see it’s half full. Similarly, if you notice the invisible part first, you have a better chance to see what is lacking. Either way, you only see half the image. The interesting dichotomy between something and nothing looks pretty much like the dualism between yin and yang. In the end, it is a simplistic understanding of the complex relationship between thoughts, perceptions, and realities. Fundamentally, the field of something refers to the orienting energy in the sphere of time and the principle of absence, balance, and constant (ABC). The Energy Conservation Law stipulates that energy cannot be created or destroyed and the sum of all energies in a system is constant. If a scene is provoked, the natural law that governs the balance would take effect through time and the planes of existence, just as the rock hit the water and caused a ring of waves to spread and reverberate around. Furthermore, energy is an element that implies the motion of translation, rotation, and vibration that become the key components of universal laws. In the field of something, the mind is the precursor of every state. That is, the object or matter must appear within the range of the mental frequency horizon; if not, observation is impossible. The relevant principle: awareness elements would discern some simple and variable frequencies based on information and memory. This would give birth to consciousness (e.g. 1, 2, 3, etc.), commonly called soul. Consciousness would then progress in a manipulative mind (e.g. 1+2, 8-6, 5x7, 3/4, etc.) that can distinguish and understand the features of objects or matters like the dichotomy between something and nothing. At the end of the day, the field of something comes in when you have the mental energy. This is because the mind is the architect for discriminating all existences by manipulative distinction. Like the famous quote from Brian G. Dyson (former CEO of Coca-Cola), “Value has value only when its value is valued”. Without mental consciousness, everything would appear as the deepest facts in itself, namely no label, no boundary, no name, no activity, no description, etc. (as the field of nothing).
  2. Form is Emptiness, Emptiness is Form (Something is Nothing, Nothing is Something) Let’s see the illustrations below: - Microscopic Analysis Of The Object (Solid Ball) By zooming in, you could see what was in the core of the solid ball, the atoms. But there was nothing to discover apart from the vibrant space. In the end, this observation would give way to the emptiness of the substance. Macroscopic Analysis Of The Object (Solid Ball) As you zoom out, the solid ball seems to shrink to the smallest possible size. In the end, such a finding would also give way to the emptiness of the substance. Given this, it is legitimate to conclude that the form is empty since no substance is stationary. This means that it exists only in relation to each other as appearances which, in turn, vary according to viewers’ perceptions. Ultimately, appearance has a deceptive nature that is lacking in intrinsic presence and varies with conditional phenomena. The above analysis has also revealed that the emptiness of phenomena is the cause and consequence of the dependent nature of phenomena. After all, emptiness is the primary source of perceptible realities. This is the inherent nature of existence and is seen as the ultimate reality because it exists inherently right as it is perceived directly by the enlightened mind.
  3. Both Sides To Mother Nature The two sides will exist simultaneously and can be illustrated in a mathematical equation, as described below: - Facet 1 (The realm of something) => … (-2+2) + (-16+16) + (-133+133) + (0) + (-54+54) …, etc. = 0 <= Facet 2 (The realm of nothing) Facet 1 = Dependent arising = the prevalence of the mind that evokes perceptions, designs, labelling, etc. = the fluctuating phenomena = the start and end processes = all subjects and objects are created. Facet 2 = Inherent existence = no mind at all = no start and end process = no conditional phenomena at all. Zero (0) = Intermediation, absence, or emptiness = a mathematical value intermediate between positive and negative values. ... (-2+2) + ... + (-54+54) ... = Flow values which are dependent = this arising, that arises. ... + (0) + ... = This ceasing, that ceases. ( .... ) = The law of kamma = a universal law of balance. -2+2 or -133+133 = The law of attraction. Based on the above mathematical equation, the conclusions could be summarised as follows: - 1. Mother Nature is a constant system with an intermediary or absent factor. This means that it will constantly move towards a balanced state. 2. If a scene is made in Mother Nature, the natural law which governs the balance would come into effect through time and the planes of existence. 3. All that exists inherently does not imply change and the created objects cannot exist inherently because it implies change. 4. Dependent nature resembles intrinsic nature.
  4. Consciousness is a label. Energy is a label. Space is a label. The ultimate truth arises beyond labels and concepts. In the end, there is only the deepest fact of all things, namely emptiness. To put it bluntly, it means nothing...
  5. Time is a human construct because it is a dimension created to measure the process of becoming a.k.a. change. It is inappropriate to characterise the process of becoming either like this or like that because it does not have a beginning or an end in nature. Therefore, from an ultimate perspective, change does not imply time.
  6. Everything is simply made of the same ingredient, that is, energy. It cannot be created or destroyed, as set out in the Energy Conservation Law. Instead, it would transform and change endlessly. To transform is to change, to change is to become, and to become is to reborn. So, energy is ever reborn all the time in the dependent nature. In fact, phenomena, objects, matters, consciousnesses, mental activities, spirits, souls, ghosts, memories, dreams, illusions, emotions, affections, etc. are categorised as energy items. In the end, all is one & one is whole. Those distinctions between all matters or phenomena are merely two sides of the same..
  7. Put simply, the observed truth would appear within the context of absolute truth, without exception.
  8. Awareness is a ground state that sustains consciousness. The nature of awareness is effulgence and it is in an unconscious condition before the objects appear. When it touches objects, consciousness springs up. It is in turn the appearance of objects in the mind, naturally looking outwards for objects, and flitting all the time. Moreover, consciousness is known by the name of synergy which implies geometric expansion with the birth of its dominant and subtle expressions. On the other hand, the mind is a pattern of consciousness that comes out of awareness and is known as consciousness in individuality. In other words, the origin of individuality is identical to the origin of the mind, which is something more objective and entails clear discrimination. This means that the mind differentiates and understands the characteristics of objects and is used to understand things, since it understands the manipulation of consciousness. Awareness (e.g. pre-1,2,3) => Consciousness (e.g. 1,2,3) => Mind (e.g. 1-2, 3/2, 2x2, 3+1)
  9. @no_name This takes place when your higher mind has a glimpse of your ordinary mind.
  10. For Individual A, the truth is that the object is firmly in front of the BLUE square and it is false to claim that the object is in front of the RED square. Concurrently, for Individual B, the truth is that the object is firmly in front of the RED square and it is false to claim that the object is in front of the BLUE square. The verdict is that all phenomena are dependent, i.e. it does not exist in an intrinsic way like this or that on their own sides, unrelated to the consciousness that perceives them. That is to say, any conclusions made are merely two sides of the same coin. In the final analysis, there are two sides to the truth: conventional truth and ultimate truth. Before expressing one’s viewpoint, it is imperative to side with the truth, respectively. “Everything we hear is an opinion, not a fact. Everything we see is a perspective, not the truth.” Marcus Aurelius
  11. By convention, things can exist within the confines of the mind as fallacy or reality. All phenomena are dependent, i.e. it does not exist in an intrinsic way like this or that on their own sides, unrelated to the consciousness that perceives them. This means that what exists is defined as what can be known through the mind, if not it does not exist. In other words, the predominance of the mind evokes duality or multiple circumstances. That is, the mind is the principal source of all perceptions, conceptions, illusions, imaginings, etc. For instance, life and death are human constructs, i.e. they are merely different notions of mental consciousness.
  12. @Tim R Your mind consciousness is observing it...I don't get what you mean by "nothing" can be aware of light, ultimately, yes.
  13. The pure nature of the mind is luminous. One of the objectives of meditation is to attain pure awareness via mindfulness. And mindfulness is all about sustaining the mind in an equanimous state of affairs i.e. a circumstance of not too tight, not too loose. In a deep meditative state, the prevailing mind consciousness would liberate temporarily from the subtle mind consciousness. As a result, it enters a state of pure observation without identification on the flow of thoughts (the subtle mind consciousness) until pure awareness is attained.
  14. Time is a created dimension i.e. an indicator for event, Length, width and height are created indicators for size and volume, Space is an indicator for energy.
