a riddle in three parts

313

What has neither parents nor offspring
yet knows existence as its family tree?

.

What has never had a mind to ‘make up’
yet sees everything directly and intimately
and acts freely, without choice?

.

What has no body, no form
yet the ten thousand things
and the ten thousand no-things
fit it perfectly?
