    I think it could be interesting to try to found a new language to talk about something that, using our current language, is in a sense unspeakable (as perhaps Wittgenstein would say).
    What here is called "silence" - that I perceive in a very active way - could be ambiguously meant as something thinkable just as a "place" where anything isn't there anymore.
    Instead, during meditation, what I agree to call "silence" - because of lack of a more proper term - is a very dynamic presence, an essence and not a mere background.
    I'm saying this even though I'm agnostic...
    Thank you for such inspirational words!
