Without question... if there is everything, nothing exists as well.

And the in-between keeps it all in balance. The void.

I'd love to believe in everything and nothing...

The closest I have come is simply believing that whatever I believe is usually not "right" or "wrong" but simply "an idea"


--------------------
Insert an "I think" mentally in front of eveything I say that seems sketchy, because I certainly don't KNOW much. Also; feel free to yell at me.

No, the void is what simply is. There is no this or that, there is no pre-concieved notion of what should be. The void is what lies between, and blends the two polarities into harmony. It is formless.

I believe in the possibility of everything, and the idea of nothing.

Nice call.

Alright... I'll buy that...

So what would you say about nothing?

Nothing is a polarity. It is nothingness. FEAR could be percieved as nothing, from a certain perspective.

Fear: the absense of courage?

Depression: the absense of happiness?


Is there anything directly in the middle of the two? Or does everything lean towards everything or nothing?

All or not?

Nothing is a polarity. It is nothingness. FEAR could be percieved as nothing, from a certain perspective.

--------------------

By polarity, I take what you mean as.. opposite...

Nothingness dosen't satisfy the meaning of nothing; it didn't explain.

Fear is definately something... ... but I'd be interested to see your certain perspective.

Fear is the darkness, the denial of all aspects of self and human nature. The desire to run away, not face a challenge.

Is there anything directly in the middle of the two? Or does everything lean towards everything or nothing?


The Void, the in-between.. what binds them and keeps them in harmony. It is neutral, having no form.

No, the void is what simply is. There is no this or that, there is no pre-concieved notion of what should be.

----------

Just to get some perspective on this issue.... The void is like a freshly born human mind... which follows the above tennets; until it gets changed.

Being in the middle of two polarities seems to enable a stable housing type environment for the void.

Would that sound reasonable?

Various gradients of courage?

Various gradiends of happiness?

Between extremes.

The void is all-encompassing, having no favorite or opinion. Everything is as it is, your example of a newly born human mind is a perfect example of the void.

Being in the middle of two polarities seems to enable a stable housing type environment for the void.

Would that sound reasonable?


Quite. The void exists within all things, yet can seem to appear infrequently if one polarity is heavily favored over another. It is always there, but not always perceived and/or dwelt in. It is balance of both polarities, harmonization.

You catch on fast.  :grin:  Yet many choose not to remain in this neutral state, favoring one polarity or the other.. often not even consciously choosing this.. the nature of human is to experience polarities, yet the catch is in balancing these experiences to view them objectively.

We can be the void. It is a matter of choice.

The closer you get to one polarity, the stronger it's effect. Getting too close to extremes is therefore rique.

Harmony/ balance results in neutrality. Getting a sample size of more than 50 % to favour a particular polarity would facilitate growth towards that direction... It would be better to say that in terms of strength. Some individuals have more strenght than others.

We are in a state of change... constructive change is what I am interested in.

in the void we lose ourself, in a corrupt society we fight to suceed, just one more time i wanna do mush, so then i can jump off a bridge and go to the happy society, i hope its there, i am taking a big chance here, eh well, relativity is all in the mind.
