practice developed in Zen. Many of his writings are attempts to help his
students understand the importance of, and approach to, this practice.
But Dogen also tries to explain what is ...

Further on Base Reality
Its not really a God of the gaps but a limitation on what we can know,
so quantum realism sets in as to what the base reality arises from. Yet,
information, is being released from the black hole. Such visualization of what is happening between a Q<->Q m...

“We did it again!” For the second time, the @LIGO experiment has detected #gravitationalwaves from colliding #blackholes, further solidifying Albert Einstein's theory of relativity. Full story: http://mitsha.re/7qYU301i1L1
