    Also important to remember that " " isn't nothing, because "nothing" is still "something", namely "the absence of something", so " " is something else entirely.

    Semantics, but still

    That's not even Nasu. The idea that our "nothing" is just "the absence of something" is quite old.
    Because you are too young. Or too stupid. Or both.

    It's not the idea that nothing is the abscense of something, but the idea that the absence of something "is still something".

    for one to understand what is nothing, one must understand what is a thing. - some ancient chinese philosopher ... probably

    strange fake has been getting pretty good since its launch but i'm worried where it will take off since there doesn't seem to be an end ahead based on the current writing

    I'd say this kind of general aimlessness is par the course for Narita. It's kind of a Hydra of dealing with one problem (pale rider running wild) only for another to pop up (Faldeus turning Flat into a threat) at this point, but even if another one popped up now that one problem has been dealt with things should probably start winding down a bit

    It won't end, it'll just stop with Narita's eventual death.

    As long as Narita doesn't introduce any other villain besides Filla and Big F we'll be fine.

    Just because it is called "absence of something". It is something. That is it has a name aka "nothing". That's why it can't be named. It is where there is everything yet nothing. The names "akashic records", "spiral of origin", "root" are just names based on individual understanding of " ".

    Here again, though, the representation of nothingness is not the issue. What is at issue is rather the nihility we find opening up before us at the ground of self-existence when we take a stand there, a nihility that really stretches out like an abyss over which the existence of the self is held in suspense. The point here is simply that nihility is always a nihility for self-existence, that is to say, a nihility that we contact when we posit ourselves on the side of the "existence" of our self-existence. From this it follows that nihility comes to be represented as something outside of the existence of the self and all things, as some "thing" absolutely other than existence, some "thing" called nothingness. The problem is that traces of the common view that simply sets nothingness over against existence as a mere conceptual negation persist. The longstanding Western view of nothingness has yet to divest itself of this way of thinking. The sunyata we speak of points to a fundamentally different viewpoint.

    Emptiness in the sense of sunyata is emptiness only when it empties itself even of the standpoint that represents it as some "thing" that is emptiness. It is, in its original Form, self-emptying. In this meaning, true emptiness is not to be posited as something outside of and other than "being." Rather, it is to be realized as something united to and self-identical with being.
    [...]
    Viewed in terms of this process, sunyata represents the endpoint of an orientation to negation. It can be termed an absolute negativity, inasmuch as it is a standpoint that has negated and thereby transcended nihility, which was itself the transcendence-through-negation of all being. It can also be termed an absolute transcendence of being, as it absolutely denies and distances itself from any standpoint shackled in any way whatsoever to being. In this sense, emptiness can well be described as "outside" of and absolutely "other" than the standpoint shackled to being, provided we avoid the misconception that emptiness is some "thing" distinct from being and subsisting "outside" of it.
    take your pick

    e: i should clarify that the sanskrit sunyata is rendered as 空 in japanese, i.e. 'kuu'/'kara' i.e. 'void'

    it is said that the only way to truly understand emptiness is to recite the heart sutra and sura al-rahman 25 times a day for a whole year. that or just be an amazon employee.

    I'll just take it as some very specific religious concept with no direct analogue Nasu borrowed.

    The only true way to understand nothingness is never thinking anything about it.
