*It is nothing special but nothing ordinary!*

No two things

Have you noticed how when you move towards something the distance between you and the something gets less and 
less until there is a point at which you can no longer get any closer because you are touching it? 

How obvious! But has it really been noticed?

At that moment, from your point of view it could be said, by you, that there are now two things in contact. 

Or it could be said right now, by no one, that nothing has changed and there are no two things.

How easily overlooked is this everyday miracle of the apparently ‘not one’ being experienced as ‘not two’.

It is nothing special but nothing ordinary!

Nothing of value can happen to a mind which knows exactly what it wants....

Philosophy is to be studied, not for the sake of any definite answers to its questions, since no definite answers can, as a rule, be known to be true, but rather for the sake of the questions themselves; because these questions enrich our intellectual imagination, and diminish the dogmatic assurance which closes the mind against speculation... (Bertrand Russell)
