Existence is beyond the power of words
Terms may be used
But none of them are absolute.
In the beginning of heaven and earth there were no words,
Words came out of the womb of matter;
And whether a person dispassionately
Sees to the core of life
Sees the surface,
The core and the surface
Are essentially the same,
Words making them seem different
Only to express appearance.
If names be needed, wonder names them both:
From wonder into wonder
