“THE GREATEST OF ALL THE ACCOMPLISHMENTS OF 20TH-CENTURY SCIENCE has been the discovery of human ignorance.” Lewis Thomas, Lives of a Cell. “OUR IGNORANCE, OF COURSE, HAS ALWAYS BEEN WITH US, AND ALWAYS WILL BE. What is new is our awareness of it, our awakening to its fathomless dimensions, and it is this, more than anything else, that marks the coming of age of our species.” Timothy Ferris, Coming of Age in the Milky Way.

Aspects of This Moment

IS (Now-Ever Present)
BRIGHT (Illuminated, All-Light, All-Power)
INEXHAUSTIBLE (Eternal, and beyond time; cannot be depleted.)
COMPLETE (Unbroken, Unbreakable, Irreducible. Cannot be added to or subtracted from.)
ALL-GIVEN (Spontaneously arising.)
SURPRISING (Not memory, not imagination. Astonishing!)
OPEN (No object, no entity—no separated “I” and no “other.”)
UNCREATED/INDESTRUCTIBLE (Cannot be annihilated or even diminished.)
NO KNOWING (Only do not know.)
NO GAINING (Never can grab hold and keep.)

NO DILEMMA (No opponent. No alternative. No war.)
