The Truth on Non-substantiality


The truth on non-substantiality does not state that ‘nothing really exists’, but that since all things come into existence only through their relationship with other things (= …dependent origination), nothing exists independently. Thus, the essential nature of even physical phenomena lies outside the words and concepts of existence and non-existence.


 – R Causton. 1988
