noumenal nonsense

87

Wei Wu Wei speaks of noumenality
as “the presence of the absence of phenomena”

the words are precise, the meaning unambiguous
but how can it be said more simply?

tick-tock mind comes up with a suggestion-of-sorts:

O=(nth-me)

where O
is pregnant emptiness
or the moon
or a riceball
(mooningriceballingwholeness)

and nth
stands for ‘now! this! here!’
or the furthest degree
of experience-ability and
imagine-ability

and me
is an idea become belief

subtract the belief from the field of experiencing
and what’s left?

simply put – by another big W
that of which we cannot speak”

yet that which we
unquestionably
know to be ‘I’

(mooningriceballingwholeness)
