A Quote by Daniel Pinchbeck on daniel pinchbeck, 2012, enlightenment, quantum physics, ashvaghosha, and thathagatta

Enlightenment or awakening, in the Eastern traditions, is the individual’s experience of reconnecting with this ultimate ground of being, the “suchness” (Thathagatta) that supersedes all dualism.  As the Buddhist sage Ashvaghosha put it two thousand years ago:  “Suchness is neither that which is existence, nor that which is nonexistence, nor that which is at once existence and nonexistence, nor that which is not at once existence and nonexistence.”  Capra points out that such paradoxical descriptions sound identical to the physicist’s attempts to grasp the slippery essence of quantum objects, which are neither wave nor particle, do not exist yet do not not exist.
