The Mystery of Monism

Recommended Posts

Spinoza at the age of 23 held that there is only one substance and it is called monism. The Hindus actually beat him to it with the saying that, "it is all an illusion of an non-dual nature." Space is incomprehensible and therefore matter, which requires space, must also be incomprehensible. Not a problem for Spinoza except for the fact that he was disowned by his family and community and had to leave town.

I never really looked into this much. So this is like saying "empty space" is not truly empty or void of matter as within everything, something exists? 

I always viewed everything to have some form of life within it and there is a connection between everything but that might be a different topic.
