"the Source and substance of all seeing"

Figuratively speaking, whole-seeing can be said to "underlie" divided-seeing.


  1. We can say so, as a pointer, but let me remind you that nothing we can say is the "TRUTH." Consider this passage from Wei Wu Wei.

    TWO: Then how can one teach?
    ONE: Those few who were qualified to teach, those few, like the Maharshi, said that silence was more efficacious, but in early stages teaching can only be given via a series of untruths diminishing in inveracity in ratio to the pupil's apprehension of the falsity of what he's being taught.
    TWO: That is devastating!
    ONE: Not at all: it is just education. Truth cannot be communicated: it can only be laid bare.
