     Most of our knowledge is a fragment of information, validated by some other fragment.
    take for example the case of the "half empty glass". here emptiness or fullness is seen with reference to the water in the glass. We conveniently ignore the presence of air in the glass. If we take into account the presence of subtle elements in our formulations then we would realise that there is only fullness. Emptiness comes into being by ignoring the subtle, the aspect of reality which is beyond our comprehension. Accepting emptiness is accepting our limited understanding of the wholeness of life.
    how many of us are comfortable in accepting that "I don't know"?
