This is no didactic discourse. It’s just a collection of old posts picked-up from my file-boxes and prettied-up.

Posts I wrote when I was more earnest, eager to convince. The Covid-19 lock-down occasioned the change of heart. A change of mind as well. The more one understands, the less less it matters if one is understood, or not. There are worse ways to waste one’s time.

‘The Natural Limit of Inquiry’ [Print, 2004] introduces the Symbol ‘0’ in the final pages using the Buddhist Doctrine of Co-dependence and terminates at a later derivative expression: Shūnyathā. This Site goes back to the Symbol’s origin as Shūnyam, elaborates it to completion and illustrates it in contemporary setting.

The early material on this Site is largely from the book and my original files [1999]. As I reread them, any new and relevant comments are made at the very bottom of each Post.

Free, available everywhere, allowing dialogue, endless editing refinements, limitless page additions. Was there ever a better platform than a website to tell an interminable story?

Reader Comments are disabled [this is a one-man folly]. But if you spot obscure, conflicting or redundant language in the unedited Posts, you get the credit but drop me a line. I read my emails.

Praṇāmam, a deep gasshō, to every fearless hunter who stalks ‘The Great Doubt’ wherever it may lead. And dares to stare the Bear in the eye.
