The Self, Does it Exist?

You can’t hold a whirlpool, it has no substantial self existence. It is just a manifestation of water. 

 

Talking about a whirlpool does not mean it inherently exists, just the concept that we communicate. 

 

It appears to exist, but it is only water. 

 

Very well said. :)

Although a whirlpool appears it is empty, although it is empty it appears. 

 

A manifestation of perceived qualities dependent upon a plethora of circumstance.

 

Which earned me "a big no shit" when I shared what I was giggling about before posting it. :lol:

patterns recognized in local awareness... my storyteller always has a story ready it seems.

 

thinking in english...  tends to require mind to associate an assumption with reality...

 

that verbs arise from nouns that create them. 

 

the whirlpool swirls.  the girl plays.  a man sings... 

 

which for me, seems like a list of all verbs...

 

verbs verbing verbs

are there any nouns?

nouns are verbs are they not?

 

patterns comprised of patterns within patterns

 

ever shifting, changing, adapting among co-arising conditions

 

is Self shifting? 

 

what abides that never changes?
