The ALL »


The Empirical ALL is what can be Sensed or Thought of!

At Savatthi the Blessed Buddha pointed out a most Radical Empiricism:
Bhikkhus, I will teach you the ALL. Listen to that... And what, Bhikkhus, is this ALL?

The Eye and the Forms;
The Ear and the Sounds;
The Nose and the Smells;
The Tongue and the Tastes;
The Body and the Touches;
The Mind and the Mental States.

This defines and establish the ALL... If anyone, Bhikkhus, should ever postulate this:
"Having denied this all, I will define & point out another all!", that would be empty babble!
If he was questioned, he would not be able to reply and he would become quite perplexed.
Why? Because, Bhikkhus, that would be far out of his mental range! (since)
This World  both Begins  and Ends  within this 2 fathom frame of bones... SN I 62

Looks initially quite far and remotely 'out there'...

Yet IT IS actually rather close up, as inherently sensed 'in here'...

OUT = IN Wholeness:
Inseparable are the internal and the external...
Inseparable are the mental and the physical...
Inseparable are the experience and experienced...
Inseparable are the subject and the object...
Inseparable are the naming and the forming...
Inseparable are the mirror and the representation…
The ‘Real’ World is a perceived
Of what we will never know, since IT IS just that...
A never-ending FILM in dire need of Scissors!
