Jug and Clock

[True family and True country - Integral Yoga of Sri Aurobindo & The Mother - Comment by Tusar N. Mohapatra on 15/10/2011 3:51 PM
While citing the Master, accuracy should be ensured down not only to a comma, but also to the space succeeding it. - TNM55]

Blank space or absence lends itself to umpteen ontological speculations. Derrida, Sartre, and Heidegger's Jug easily come to the mind. Not to speak of Nagarjuna culminating in Ken Wilber.

Nearer home, the Aphorism: "... Yes, but let me know also the truths which the Avatar cast not forth into speech and the prophet has omitted from his teachings. ..." And, who can forget the story of the wall-clock taking rest twixt two strokes? [TNM55]
