All there is is nothing apparently happening

Tony Parsons in conversation with Zaya Benazzo from SAND 2013 Conference

“All there is is nothing apparently happening On the face of it this is a simple but paradoxical proposal.

It is also radical in that it recognises that the concept of self is illusory, together with any belief in free will and choice. As there is nothing happening, there would be nothing to seek or to become.

And how can there be a meaning or a purpose in this apparent existence if there is nothing apparently happening? This proposal dispels any idea of there being a story or an agenda of any kind leading to anything better or worse.

So, if there is nothing really happening, then the nothing that is unknowable, and often feared, is also the very fullness and freedom that is longed for.”
