Nothing here...

We're too busy out doing something, or not doing.   ;D
At least I'm housebroken.

Oh, you know, the usual. Bowl. Drive around. The occasional acid flashback.

Dude, why are you just getting to the boards now?  Grab a rug, hang out for a while!
From what is Dudeism trying to liberate us?Thinking that's too uptight.

To what state of being is Dudeism trying to bring us? Just taking it easy, man.

By what means does Dudeism attempt do this? Abiding.

Nothing is a very complex subject.
By definition it indicates a something. At least an observer.
A rug pee'er, a known pornographer, and that's cool.....

But you know nothing has a lot of in's and out's man.
Don't get me wrong, I believe in nothing but I believe it is by definition something.
At least it's an ethos.

There once was a man who claimed to be Nothing.
From Nothing he said, we all have been lead.
And so sure was he
That Nothing could be,
That he made a great something for zed.

Nothing can ever be certain but Nothing.
No matter the way or the source.
For Nothing you see
Means Nothing to me.
And Nothing is Nothing of course!

To get Something from Nothing now that is the wish.
It?s so easy to see how zero can?t be,
But no matter you try
It?s all pie in the sky.
And all there can be is Nothing or me.

There once was a man named Gene
Who invented an Infinity machine
He added Nothing to naught
And by zero he aught
Then divided it all by the mean!

Nothing it is said is all in your head.
But it?s not easy to see how this can be.
If it?s empty of thought,
And there?s nothing but naught
Then why is there lead there instead?

It's the failure of science to see past the game.
It sees no-thing and nothing as one and the same
A zero or zed
Or a nil and a naught
Means no-thing is nothing if nothing's to blame.

There are not Answers.....there are only Choices.

Please...Do No Harm

Nothin' and everythin', same same. Dig it, that empty set you read about in school? It's got everythin' inside just not chopped up, no distinctions, the whole magilla, the uncarved block, the empty hand, the focus of silence.

One is the first distinction, the set of the empty set, the first clap a baby makes. Two is when you notice nothin' and everythin', and then it's Lao Tzu chapter 40 all the way down to the full stop at the end of this sentence. You clap your hands that first time and WHAM! there's after and before, cause and effect, self and other, whoopdedo two hands.

As to why I wasn't on the boards, dude, I was takin' it easy.

I like the idea of using sets to explain the Dao.  To me the issues is you have reality which is this really, really big set and you have language which is this tiny, tiny finite subset of reality.

Now use the tiny, tiny subset to define the really, really big set.

Can't do it so shut the fuck up Donnie, you're out of your element.

Sanity is giving up the illusion of control.
Happiness is letting go of the past.
Serenity is just being myself.

The Dude abides.
