This Site began as a collection of old Posts picked-up from my file-boxes and prettied-up. Scripts I wrote when I was more earnest, eager to convince. Blame the Covid-19 lock-down for the change of heart.

‘The Natural Limit of Inquiry’ [Print, 2004] introduces the Symbol ‘0’ but stops an inch short at Shūnyathā, a later, limited and derivative construct. This Site goes back to the Symbol’s origin as Shūnyam, elaborates it to completion and illustrates it in contemporary setting.

The early and unedited material on this Site, the first 200-Posts or so, is mostly from the book and my original files [1999]. Rereading them, they clearly need an Editor’s tape and scissors. I’ll get around to it.

[Meanwhile I have started adding comments in red to set orientation and context. It may be helpful.]

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 for now. I’ll need help monitoring them. But if you spot obscure, conflicting or redundant language [or antiquated links] in the unedited Posts, do 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.
