1976: Do You Know What Anything Is?
Out of nothing, out of nowhere, there is all of this. You can enter into play with it and think about it, even perhaps know things about it, but you never know what it is. You never begin by knowing what it is, and you never end by knowing what it is.
Nevertheless, because you can know about things, you enter into a very complex affair of life, hurrying about, doing this and that, thinking, speaking. Yet, you do not know how speech occurs. You are not sitting behind the words talking. You do not know what the wall is. You do not know what that hand iswhat it is. You are in a condition of complete ignorance, complete non-knowledge. You are utterly mindless.
