In an eclectic tour de force culled from a wide variety of sources - the great eastern and western philosophical traditions to relativity and quantum mechanics, the author of "The King's Question" engages us in a demonstration of how we actually convince ourselves that the world is real; a "ding an sich". The essays and dialogues range from terse and sometimes humorous metaphysical investigations in the spirit of the great Buddhist and Vedantin masters to the cutting edge of quantum electrodynamics and relativity.
The author has described this approach as akin to removing chewing gum with chewing gum.
In order for something to originate, it has to come from somewhere.But "somewhere" is a subsequent condition taking PLACE in memory. If so-called things do not originate, we are in the dreamscape...if time is the product of successive appearances in memory, it does not take time for appearances to appear.
