“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.

Six Vajra Verses (from the Dzogchen tradition)

The nature of all phenomena is non-dual flow.
What IS never can be determined,
Yet the total universe spontaneously arises without obstructing.
Everything already has been accomplished;
Therefore, relaxing from the strain of seeking and trying, 
find yourself whole and bright.
This is contemplation.
