The two cannot be completely separated,
the one feeds the other which feeds the one.
Bozo Faust





This formula applies in the case of the media  and it’s message and what we do.

There is NO "2" distinction unless there is distinction (unless you can separate out a difference)


it's not a matter of being able to draw a mental distinction between two things that can be identified.  rather it is a knowledge that they do not exists as such independent of each other.  For example an apple and an orange.  These are quite independent of each other and the apple's existence is not dependent on the orange's existence.  But what kind of things are not that way?

Yep, you are describing the process of distinction, but won't acknowledge it.

the formula is not empty ... it restrains the universe when the variables are bound to specifics. 



the premise here is that a statement that does not restrain some universe in some way could be considered empty.

Must be a pretty big Dude to restrain the Universe!
Good Luck!
Everything & Nothing are the same from a Zen perspective.
Empty is slightly more than Nothing.



give me a break ... talking this way, as is common in some circles, merely means that a universe in which the statement was true would be different than a universe in which it would not be true.

as to the meaning of your empty, well that was your tagging, i was just going with it.
