"No-thing"...is higher than human awareness, it is the underlying apex that mediates all of "being". "Hight" is merely a statement of opposing poles (high/low), thus which is higher than all of being is intrinsically the center of it all.
I really agree with that intelligent point - thank you Eodnhoj7
It prompts me to go one step further: by stating that 'No thing' is evolving, and that every thing is just a 'thought' which is mentation a unique phenomena within the mysterious sense of reality itself. ''thoughts'' are apparently coming and going, arising and falling, approaching and receding within the ''No thing'' emptiness of awareness. Awareness being the centreless centre of all apparent things. As above so below. As within so without...etc..etc..
It's all the play of nothingness this immediate, unmoving, unchanging, ageless all pervading CENTRE in which everything turns and has it's being. The centre is everywhere and the circumfrence is nowhere.
Evolution/Involution is the expansion and contraction of a phenomenon, from the void, into multiple variations of the same thing. I say involution, as evolution alone is a contradiction due to its dependence on the polarity of "involution".
For example, using a thought experiment.
I have a memory of seeing a tree. I meditate on this memory every time I smell "pine". Eventually the image is "forgotten", it is contracted into the void of the subconsious (involuted) where it becomes "one" my underlying patterns of thought.
So every time I smell pine, this image "evolves" out of the "void" into that memory again. However Its a variation of the original memory (or rather experience) in that it is not just a replication but effectively also changes itself. I may remember a different angle of the tree, see it from a different light, etc.
So "void" is the underlying empty center between the two extremes of evolution and involution or "expansion" and "contraction". It occurs within consciousness, it occurs within nature.
Yeah, in short terms. I can expound on the definition, but you are on "point"...pardon the pun...lol
