Shūnyam arose as a mimic-construct to the Axioms of Sight. A synthetic self-destroying device that implodes, exits the stage once its work is done. A guiding-rail that helps the user effectively navigate the ‘Backward Step’.
You cannot have any kind of relationship with yourself. Any relationship you have is always and only with a model of yourself [i.e. a reconstruction in sign and symbol, a confounding of Object as Subject.]
You cannot have any kind of relationship with Shūnyam. You cannot see it, smell it, sense it in anyway. You may not think it, imagine it, dream it, emote to it, recoil from it and so on. Say a word [or write a Website] about it and what you have said, by that very fact, is not it.
Any relationship you have is always and only with the Concept of Nothing, the Idea of Absence.
Shūnyam’s sole purpose is to wake you to the truth of the absence of any Independent and Separated ‘Self’. And its sacred and solemn task, its holy-work, to undermine you at every stage, trip you at every step, until you thud to the cold hard floor.
Without it, you will spin forever in self-referential loops with no exit. The ‘Backward Step’ is not navigable.
At Shūnyam, and only at Shūnyam, can I convincingly affirm the absence of Subject.
